There was a lot of bitter back-and-forth between the Jets and Patriots about last week's controversial overtime pushing penalty. At first, Bill Belichick didn't seem to know what the penalty was. (He made a big deal about the "second level" in the pushing penalty—"We weren't on the second level when we pushed him, no. You can't push from the second level"—which wasn't a correct interpretation.) By Tuesday, Belichick conceded that the Pats were penalized correctly but said the Jets should have been called for it too. ("Well, I mean, since they were using the play themselves, I don't even know about all that.") And then Rex Ryan started to lose patience—"That's not true! He's got to make up his mind. Was he aware of this thing? Was it second-level, all this kind of jazz?"—and then Calvin Pace tried to give Belichick instructions on how to "lose graciously." Turns out, though, that Belichik was right about the Jets.
In the GIF above, you'll see Quinton Coples maybe-possibly pushing Mo Wilkerson into the Patriots line. From a side angle we showed you earlier this week, it doesn't look as if Coples is purposely pushing Wilkerson into the line, certainly not in the explicit way that the Pats' Chris Jones was pushing teammate Will Svitek in the overtime play.
