During what ended up being a mildly entertaining game between two teams going absolutely no where this year, Jordan Mailata was knocked out of the game with a head injury. Didn’t think anything of it at the time but upon further review….
Yeah, that’s as busch league as it gets. People on Twitter are disagreeing on whether they believe it actually is dirty or not but IMHO, it 1000000% is a dirty play. And really the key factor isn’t that he went head to head. That happens all the time in the trenches. The issue is that he very clearly left his feet and went head first into Mailata’s head. It’s a scumbag move that resulted in a player getting injured. There is no place for this in the league and the NFL needs to make that clearly apparent.
PS: Thanks for the top 6 pick Dallas. Enjoy this meaningless victory.
