Cardinals Save Fumble, Mike Smith Wastes Challenge

11.18.12 5 years ago 2 Comments

Cardinals cornerback Greg Toler made a nice diving save of a Jason Snelling fumble to keep it in bounds so it could be recovered by another defender. Toler’s toe came very close to the sideline when he knocked the ball back toward the middle of the field, so it appeared borderline whether the turnover would stand. Except Mike Smith threw his red challenge flag before the automatic review. That resulted in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty because there’s a hilarious rule dictating that a coach can’t do that. That’s wonderful baiting by the competition committee.
