NFL Fans Are Crushing Penalty Call In Cowboys vs. Eagles

Social media erupts after Randy Gregory flagged for low hit


Needless to say, not everyone was in agreement.


In the first half of the Cowboys-Eagles matchup on Sunday Night Football, defensive end Randy Gregory was called for a low hit on Carson Wentz as he threw. Wentz was knocked off balance and wrapped up around the waist area. The NFL’s low hit rule is to prevent players from going for the quarterback’s knees.


The call had massive reactions from those around the league. Instead of getting a much needed play on defense, the Dallas defense was walking back 15 yards in the other direction.


Charles Robinson, football reporter for Yahoo sports, posted on Twitter, “Cmon. This can’t be a personal foul for a low hit on an #NFL quarterback. This is absurd.”


Through the first half, the Cowboys held Wentz to just 91 passing yards, one touchdown, and had one interception. However, it wasn’t enough in the end as the Cowboys had to roll with their third-string quarterback on Sunday Night.


DiNucci was actually a shining star as he completed over 50% of his passes for 180 yards. However, DiNucci couldn’t find the endzone as the Cowboys lost 23-9 to the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 2-6 on the season.


According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, DiNucci acknowledged that he made too many mistakes.


“We had a few good drives, got past the 50 and then one thing or another stalled us out,” DiNucci said. “I had two fumbles, had some penalties, some pre snap penalties. That stuff is on me. I’ve got to clean that up. This NFL thing, it’s hard. These teams are good. It’s a battle every single week.”
