Micah Parsons, Cowboys’ linebacker, secured the fumble recovery that would have won the game for Dallas. Parsons disagreed with the offensive lineman of the Jags on that play.
Parsons responded to Brian Baldinger’s breakdown of the play by tweeting: “Still no one talking bout this guy jumping on my neck?! But yet we can’t land on a quarterback!”
Monday was the first day that Parsons’ comments went viral.

“The NFL officiating might want to make sure its young stars like Micah Parsons are being protected – even if they play defense,” said Ed Werder. “This should be a 15-yard PF and a fine.”

Clarence Hill Jr. said “This.”
“As a Myles Garrett fan, I can say unequivocally that the NFL and NFL officiating does not care about defensive players getting wrapped up by or hit in any way around the neck,” a Clevelander replied.
