With an injury-depleted roster, the Washington Redskins needed contributions from everyone suited up in their surprising 17-14 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. But according to some, the team should have also been down their top cornerback for the last three quarters of the game.
The play came immediately after Norman had dragged the tight end down with a brutal horse-collar tackle that would earn a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty at the start of the second quarter.

The play happened right in front of an official.
Still, the refs on hand made no mention of the act. Many viewers at home called for the All-Pro corner‘s ejection.
If officials are gonna throw guys out of games for dirty play then Josh Norman should be gone for the day for horse collar and cheap shot.

Norman later clapped back on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time Norman has crossed the line with an offensive player. Back when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, he got into a fight with Cam Newton during practice.
