Many NFL fans and price per head sportsbooks believe that on Thursday night, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin should have been given a penalty for stepping on the field, and a league official confirmed that over the next week the play will be reviewed for discipline.
Also, according to sources, the official running that goes along with the play – allowing Tomlin to come between him and Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens – could be downgraded.
Price per head sportsbooks saw that after Pittsburgh scored to close to 13-7 in the third quarter, on the ensuing kickoff Jones broke free down the sideline, but the player slowed up with the coach on the white stripe near the playing field – with his foot being at one point on the field as Jones was approaching his location. Tomlin, with his back to the play, was not punished for unsportsmanlike behavior.
Tomlin said that he didn’t think that he interfered with the player.
“I always watch the returns on the JumboTron. It provides better perspective for me,” Tomlin said. “I lost my placement as he broke free and saw at the last second how close I was to the field of play.”
The coach was asked if he was aware of the rule that coaches and players have to stand behind the white line separating the playing field from the sidelines – a rule that price per head sportsbooks know very well.
“Tell me something I don’t know. I do it quite often, like everybody else in the National Football League. I was wrong, I accept responsibility for it,” he told reporters.

“That’s exactly what he just did,” Flacco said. “He was looking at the big screen the whole entire time, he knew where he was, he knew where Jacoby was. He pulled my move.”
