ESPN’s Bill Williamson is reporting that the NFL has fined Rahim Moore $21,000.00 for his hit on Emmanuel Sanders during the 3rd quarter of Sunday Night’s game against the Steelers. An odd and highly debatable decision after many football pundits (former players and analysts alike) said the play should have never been flagged.
It also led to extending a Steelers drive out of 3rd and 10 that helped dominate time of possession in the 3rd quarter. One has to wonder if receiving this fine and his 20k fine last pre-season following the Bills matchup will lead to a reputation. That Moore is going to be labelled “that guy” by other players and the league office leading to harsher penalties and scrutiny modifying his play on the field.
