Frustrated Seattle Seahawks players lost their cool on Saturday after their team got dominated by the Rams defense.
Early in the Seahawks-Rams wildcard playoff game, star wide receiver DK Metcalf was seen yelling at his teammates in the first half after getting shut down by Jalen Ramsey.
Late in the fourth quarter, Seahawks’ kick returned DJ Reed decided to throw the ball at Rams’ JuJu Hughes and went on to punch him in the head for whatever reason.
Officiating has been horrendous for both playoff games so far but this is the worst. How does Seahawks returner Reed not get 15 yard personal foul, if not ejected, for this ball spike into helmet followed by punch on #46 Hughes on Rams? Fox crew said nothing about it. pic.twitter.com/CGC7NM5vuP

Here’s a closer look at Reed punching Hughes in the head.
So punching a player in the head is okay now? My lordt! pic.twitter.com/7q7gQzIkSO

Reed somehow wasn’t flagged on the play despite the obvious penalty.
