Richard Sherman, who was flagged three times on one play earlier in the game, drilled Marcus Mariota with one of the dirtiest hits of 2017. It was more than just a late hit out of bounds – it was a player leaving his feet to take out a franchise QB near the bench.
It’s dangerous and sets a terrible precedent. The cheap shot set off a fracas on the sideline, which sadly resulted in “off-setting penalties.” Which is a joke. Why wasn’t Sherman ejected? He’ll be fined, but so what?
The referees botched this one, badly. The Titans settled for a field goal.
