A three-game winning streak for the Pittsburgh Steelers came to an end on Thursday, despite what appeared to be an attempt from head coach Mike Tomlin to affect the game. In the third quarter of a game against the Baltimore Ravens, Tomlin drew the ire of Baltimore fans after he appeared to interfere with a kick return of Jacoby Jones.
Tomlin, who was looking at the video board at M&T Bank Field, was in the path of Jones, who was running down the sideline. While he managed to hop out of the way, he altered the path of Jones, who was tackled shortly thereafter.
Now the NFL reportedly wants to take a closer look at the play, as Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the NFL will investigate the play.
Here is a roundup of other news from around the NFL that you may have missed on Friday:
It's still unknown whether Richie Incognito will make another appearance with the Miami Dolphins during the 2013 season, as his indefinite suspension is still ongoing; however, he's not expected to be with the team in 2014. With a contract set to expire after the 2013 season, a source told reporter Jason Cole that they'd be "shocked" if the offensive lineman were re-signed by the team in the offseason.
The Buccaneers are on a three-game winning streak, but the Panthers will attempt to bring it to an end on Sunday without the contributions of their top pass rusher, Charles Johnson. The defensive end suffered a sprained MCL against the New England Patriots in Week 11 and sat out Week 12. In 10 games, Johnson has accumulated 8.5 sacks; he has tallied 41.5 sacks since 2010.
Lance Dunbar had a career-high 12 carries on Thursday against the Oakland Raiders, tallying 82 yards, but it will be the last of his contributions for the 2013 season, as a knee injury suffered in the game will require surgery to repair, the team announced. An undrafted free agent in 2012, Dunbar worked his way into the Cowboys' lineup and split carries with DeMarco Murray, who will likely take on an even larger role for the team moving forward.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is listed as questionable for Sunday after suffering a groin injury last week against the Detroit Lions. Despite sitting out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Revis participated in the team's walkthrough on Friday and was listed as a limited participant. The Buccaneers have the task of stopping the Panthers, who have a seven-game winning streak despite having the NFL's 30th-ranked pass offense.
