The Eagles HC Doug Pederson would not comment on the Jadeveon Clowney hit on Carson Wentz, that put Wentz out for the rest of the game.
Pederson did not comment on it when reporters ask he said “I didn’t see it”. The Referee Shawn Smith said officials saw it clearly.
Smith told reporters that no flag was thrown because the contact was deemed “incidental”. “We didn’t deem it to be a foul”, Smith told reporters.
In the first quarter of the Eagles-Seahawks game, Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney made a helmet-to-helmet hit to Wentz, that would end the playoffs short for him.
Smith stated, “He was a runner, and he did not give himself up”. “We saw incidental helmet contact, and in our judgement, we didn’t rule that to be a foul”, Smith also stated to reporters.
