Kyzir White’s Late Helmet-to-Helmet Hit on Sam Howell was Bush League

There were several cheap shots during Sunday’s 20-16 opening-day win for the Washington Commanders over the Arizona Cardinals. The main play that most will remember is the hit Cardinals LB Kyzir White put on Commanders QB Sam Howell after Howell had clearly taken at least two steps out of bounds.

It’s just a matter of time before the NFL adapts the same rules that college football already has that lead to players being ejected for targeting. There is no place in the game for this anymore, with all the knowledge of CTE and concussions in general.

The video below gives my opinions on the subject; viewer discretion may be needed.
