Steelers cornerback Stephen Nelson in all probability should not have engaged in trash discuss or a shoving match with Jaguars receiver DJ Chark on Sunday, however his punishment relative to Chark appeared troublesome to justify.
Nelson stared down Chark and began jawing after a second-quarter play. Chark responded by speeding up near the defender, they usually exchanged mild pushes. Then Chark linked with a punch to Nelson’s helmet.
Referees assessed Nelson with a 15-yard pointless roughness flag. Chark didn’t obtain a penalty.
Two performs after the incident, Chark made an 18-yard catch. The drive ended with Jaguars quarterback Jake Luton throwing an interception.
Steelers followers have been incensed by the no-call on Chark, whereas Jaguars followers have been amused on the sequence:
So Nelson pushed Chark within the chest and obtained flagged however Chark punched Nelson within the head in entrance of the ref and it wasn’t flagged? #PITvsJAX
