Meanwhile, Panthers have forced 1 punt in 2 weeks.  Two not very good teams, but the game was close.

Both should have been tossed

WTF?!    Do they think they play for Greg Williams?  Both should be fined.

I thought the kick was the worse of the two hits.  I mean, there is no way that's not intentional.

The other hit was more of a full speed run at the quarterback who suddenly falls in front of him because of the kick and his options were to put his head down and do a helmet to helmet hit or hit his head with his arm/chest.

I would have tossed the kicker and just fine the second guy because it was still a bad hit, just not enough to kick him out the game, in my opinion.

A blow to the head is always going to get more attention
