Since then, they have not regretted it.
“Some of these calls are starting to get a little crazy,” Boss-Rusher said Robert Quinn, On Monday he was named for his third Pro Bowl. “These tips seem to control the game a little bit more. So when a play is clean, they throw the flag at what they think could change the game. [with] With only one flag … let the guys play ball. If it had been two years ago, not even half of these things would have been called. But now that they have gotten so many of these stupid rules, they are hanging in the hands of a referee [and] You can change the game at any time.
“I think they’re not our coach, they should check the hired refs.”
Nagy was punished between the first and second quarters, two plays after Novak’s crew flagged down Pierce Safety. Diane Bush For Vikings Tight End Victory Tyler ConklinHead over to an incomplete pass. The NFL’s official department tweeted that Bush had “forced contact” against Conclin, a debate that has been hotly debated during the Nagy game.
“I saw what happened,” Nagy said. “Our guys are fighting to get out of the field with their donkeys. I saw what happened. So I explained my opinion about it. And I did not regret it.”
Novak told a pool reporter that Nagy used “inappropriate words” during his argument.
“I will not repeat what has been said, but if it is inappropriate when it crosses the border, we will fly a flag,” Novak added.
Both teams fought to keep the peace. Defensive lineman bears Dashan Gibson Sr.. And attack lineman Ten Jenkins The Vikings were fined 15 yards each for occupying the players after the game. And the Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks Pierce was sent off in the fourth quarter for a header in the quarterback Justin Fields, Who slipped and felt down.
“I did not get a good explanation, really. They came in late and they thought he had an elbow on his head,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said of Kendricks’ departure. “I thought it looked pretty clean, and I thought the quarterback had collapsed and kept his head up. Eric went down and raised his head to avoid it, thinking they had collided head on.”
Zimmer said overall he thought his team had done a good job of keeping quiet in an oyster game against a division rival.
“I know it helped us twice because they got 15-yard penalties,” he said. “We’re trying to be a decent football team, not doing things like that. But sometimes when your masculinity is challenged, you react, you have to maintain it – you know, I’re wrong, I spoke. Defense, composing. And about doing our job. “
Vikings receiver added Justin Jefferson: “Chicago [is] Always like that. They like to talk junk and get us out of our game a little bit. That’s what they do. We play our own game, we keep our own business in mind, we play football. “
