Leading 24-21 the Kansas City Chiefs were potentially facing a third and eight against the Saints. That third down turned into a first down when Saints defensive lineman Nick Fairley did this away from the play:

This wasn’t a case of being over aggressive. The play was on the other side of the field. This is a case of being stupid. This 15-yard penalty gave the Chiefs a first down with a little over two minutes to go.
The Chiefs essentially iced the game with this penalty on Fairley. What was he thinking??
