Brady Henderson ESPN
Al Riveron, the NFL's Senior Vice President of Officiating, said in his weekly officiating video that Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald should have been penalized for his hit on Oakland's Amari Cooper last week. Riverson said McDougald lowered his head to initiate contact, a penalty, and that he alternatively could have been flagged for unnecessary roughness on a defenseless player. McDougald told reporters postgame that he thought it was a clean hit. That Riveron disagrees means McDougald will likely be fined.
