The Seahawks' 31-25 win over the Bills on Monday was one of the wildest games of the 2016 NFL season, and it's probably safe to say that the end of the first half gave us one of the wildest sequences of the year.
Over the final three seconds of the half, which lasted about 15 minutes in real time, we saw at least two blown calls, a missed field goal, and a hit on Bills kicker Dan Carpenter that completely incensed his wife.
The blown call came in two parts: There was a no-call for what should have been unnecessary roughness after Richard Sherman hit Carpenter, then the Bills were called for a delay of game.
After the game, Dean Blandino admitted that the Bills probably shouldn't gotten a fresh play clock and that Sherman should've been flagged for hitting Carpenter.
Kaela Carpenter, the wife of the Bills kicker, also clearly wanted a flag.
After the game was over, Kaela sent out a tweet directed at Sherman that she's probably going to eventually regret. You can see the tweet below.
In the tweet, Kaela also included a picture of a bander ( photo here), a tool that's used to castrate farm animals. The huge problem with the tweet is that it comes across as racist because Kaela is comparing Sherman to a farm animal and also insinuating that he needs to be kept from reproducing.
Even Sherman, who's almost always outspoken, was surprised at the content in Kaela's tweet.
"It's amazing how comfortable she is saying that," the Seahawks corner told ESPN.
Sherman also responded directly to the tweet.
Anyway, the Seahawks corner doesn't understand why anyone is mad about his hit on Carpenter. According to Sherman, it was all legal.
"I went to block the kick. I'm not going to let him make a kick," Sherman said. "When they called offsides, I'm not going to let him have a free play. That's not how I play. So I played until the whistle's blown."
Although Blandino says Sherman should've been flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, Sherman doesn't see it that way.
"I went straight for the ball. I didn't go for the kicker. I slid for the ball," Sherman said. "He should have not kicked it. Maybe he wanted to. I went for the ball. That's where I went. So if the ball gets tipped on the play, the rule is if it's tipped there's no flag."
