Clyde Edwards-Helaire was fined $10,300 for unsportsmanlike conduct after pointing at Cowboys linebacker Luke Gifford throughout Kansas City’s Week 11 win over Dallas. The Chiefs running back pointed at Gifford after extending the Chiefs’ lead on a second-quarter goal run. 

The NFL has actually stressed ridiculing throughout the 2021 season. The increased ridiculing charges have actually resulted in extreme criticism from fans who have actually seen a number of video games affected by the 15-yard charge. One of the greatest ridiculing charges took place throughout the Bears’ Week 9 loss to the Steelers, when Chicago linebacker Cassius Marsh was flagged after briefly looking in the instructions of Pittsburgh’s sideline after making a sack. The charge, which took place on a third-down play, permitted the Steelers to kick a basket that added to ultimate 29-27 win. 

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who belongs to the NFL’s Competition Committee, just recently discussed the NFL’s choice to punish ridiculing this season. 

“We’re just trying to clean our game up,” Tomlin stated. “We embrace the responsibility that comes with being the role models that we are. This game being played at the highest level. We understand that people that play at a lower level watch us and often mimic the things that we do and how we conduct ourselves. Just largely as a league, competition committee specifically, there was a desire to improve in that area.”
