Patriots defensive tackle, Chris Jones, was called for unsportsmanlike conduct on this play. Technically he violated Rule 913 which says, "Team B players cannot push teammates on the line of scrimmage into offensive formation."
The fact that an NFL official saw a penalty on this play is laughable. Hell, you can barely even see it on slow motion, high def, replay. Was it a penalty? Yes. Was it necessary to make that call? Absofuckinglutely not.
If that penalty hadnt been called, no one would have given two shits. I guarantee no one on the Jets would have even noticed that it happened. The Patriots would have had the ball at the 46 yard line and, despite the fact that Tom Brady was having a shitty day, he most likely would have put the Patriots in a position to win the game. And if my aunt had a dick, she'd be my uncle.
That game was a friggin embarrassment to the NFL.
