Question Penalty by Nate

Can anyone explain 2 me why that Nate's run-in into that Bengal was not acceptable, please? I didn't understand that part.

I am not really sure, it looked incidental to me...like they accidentally ran into each other. It didn't effect the play, so I don't see why it mattered. At least we had missed call that went our way, but unlike most other teams fans I can admit it

incidental or not, it is illegal(offensive pass interference) to cut off a defender's route to covering a receiver, especially when the ball is in the air. if they allowed incidental contact then every player would start running into defenders and saying it was an accident. you would also have refs constantly making judgement calls on every pass play. they would have to decide if a offensive player is intentionally or unintentionally trying to pick the defender.

Yes, I am serious. If you could explain to me how it mattered I would appreciate it. I played nose tackle, I don't know a lot about coverage rules :)

Isn't it true that a defender also cannot impede a receivers route?

It might have been an accident, but Nate ran a pick for Hines' defender, which led to Hines beign absolutely wide open for a 42-yard gain. Since the offensive players are dictating the routes, only they can set picks.

The refs made some mistakes tonight, but the call on Nate was the right one.

Are you kidding me? He played like two craps. I was optimistic about him when he was catching those bombs earlier in the season, but now he's striknig me more as the dime-a-dozen type of receiver again.

He did drop a couple of passes that he should have had easily but it ended our drive hopefully he just had an off game and will get back to playing some good ball next week.

he has been bad the past 2 games and pretty much sums up his career so far.. inconsistent.
