J.J. Watt Reacts To The NFL Handing Out Absurd $20K Fine To T.J. Watt For Incredibly Weak Roughing The Passer Penalty Call

This season the NFL has made it clear that they want to protect their QBs but things are getting a little of hand.

Over the weekend Steelers linebacker TJ Watt was ridiculously flagged for roughing the passer when he barely touched Matt Ryan’s leg.

For whatever reason the NFL thought TJ was deserving of a $20k fine for the “forcibly hitting in the knee area or below.”

TJ’s big bro, Texans defensive star JJ Watt, wasn’t happy with the NFL’s fine on his brother and proceeded to blast the league on Twitter.

Fans were also baffled by the fine.
