Husain Abdullah Penalized For Prayer


In the Monday night manslaughter that was the Kansas City Chiefs vs the New England Patriots, the Chiefs’ defense came out with a lot of big plays in the 41-14 victory. One of which was when safety and devout Muslim Husain Abdullah intercepted Tom Brady and returned it for a touchdown. Abdullah then slid into the end zone on his knees and bowed in prayer. The chiefs were then penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct because as Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 (d) of the NFL rulebook states, “players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground.” The real question is was Abdullah fined for his slide, or for his prayer?
