[Kansas City.com] Safety Jarrad Page said the NFL sent the Chiefs a letter acknowledging a mistake was made when Page was penalized for unnecessary roughness in last week’s loss to the Giants.
Page broke up a pass over the middle for wide receiver Steve Smith but was penalized for making helmet-to-helmet contact with Smith. Replays showed Page actually used his shoulder to hit Smith in the chest.
The Giants scored on a touchdown pass to Smith on the next play, taking a 14-3 lead. They won the game 27-16.
The league’s acknowledgment didn’t make Page feel better. “It doesn’t do us any good now,” he said.
