NFL officials have been unable to sidestep any kind of criticism this season whether it comes to roughing the passer or taunting penalties.

In the second quarter of Sunday’s game between the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints, linebacker Kaden Elliss was called for a roughing the passer penalty on Ryan Tannehill. The penalty negated an interception the Titans quarterback threw in the back of the end zone.

On Saturday, it was reported Chicago Bears defensive end Cassius Marsh was fined for taunting during Monday night’s game. Marsh did a karate spin kick after a sack and then started down the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline. He was flagged after referee Tony Corrente appeared to hip check Marsh as he was running back to his own sideline.

Marsh was fined $5,972 for the play.
