Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis weighed in on the controversy from Thursday night, when Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stepped on the field and interfered with Jacoby Jones’ 73-yard kickoff return.
“You clearly saw he done it intentionally and that’s why the smile came afterward,” Lewis told Mike and Mike In the Morning. I don’t know where the humor is in that in full competition when somebody is running full speed like that. If he finds humor in it, I guess there is something he must know that we don’t know. When you look at the way the defense is playing right now and if you can get Joe [Flacco] to keep being consistent the way he is with the deep ball, I’m telling you they’re probably one of the scariest teams in the AFC to run the table,” Lewis said.
I think the NFL does need to step up and take action. Tomlin should be fined for that action, if the Ravens would have been fired up if they did lose.
