Eagles’ Cole flagged for use of hands on a Peyton Manning

Trent Cole could face a steep fine by the NFL after he was flagged for a use of hands penalty on a well-defended Peyton Manning.

“The NFL will review the play in question and determine if Cole intended to utilize his hands to disrupt the Peyton Manning, or if it was merely incidental,” said an NFL spokesperson. “As a league, we have to start cutting down on the number of hand-to-helmet taps on the Peyton Manning and the Tom Brady.”

Asante Samuel will likely also face a fine by the NFL after illegally touching two Manning passes before the offense was given a chance to catch and run it in for a touchdown.

    So…. What I gather from this is that
    1. You cannot touch the helmet of THE PEYTON MANNING
    2. You must let the receiver catch the ball and run it in for a touchdown and then you can tackle him.

Feel free to leave a comment. Or don't. It's whatever...
