Tyrann Mathieu though was having none of it. “Ball was on 10 yard line,” Mathieu tweeted. “[QB] threw ball out of back of end zone… tell me how that’s a flag? Also show me a Mike Evans TD where he didn’t push off lol or used his hands to create separation,” Mathieu tweeted as per Heavy.com.

The tweet by Mathieu though was since deleted a few hours later. Mathieu clearly did not like being called out like that on social media. But something clearly knocked some sense into him as he soon took it down.
