From Leonard Fournette to Cassius Marsh Five most outrageous nfl taunting penalties

In the NFL, snapping bones and shredding ligaments is a common thing. So, to save the player from getting ripped apart, the committee had come up with some rules, which also involved taunting flags. And this season, it seems that these flags are used without any reason. 

Leonard Fournette 

Fournette was blamed for taunting here but in fact he just initiated contact with an opponent. He later pointed in the direction of his opponent, but according to the rulebook these both attempts are outlawed. 

Jordan Akins

It was unfortunate for Akins, who ended up spinning the ball in front of the Browns sideline. This action, according to the referees, was identified as taunting and was also regarded as the worst taunt anybody can do. 

Mike Edwards 

Mike Edwards picked sixes against the Falcons in Week 2. Then he also decided to turn around to look at the 21 players. It seems like literally nothing, but referees penalised this as well. 

Elijhaa Penny 

Here the NFL referees again went into the rulebook and flagged Giants fullback Elijhaa Penny as he was pointing forward on a critical drive that too in the fourth quarter of a 17-17 game.

Cassius Marsh 

It happened in the closing moments of a tight Monday Night fixture and is considered being the wrongest taunting call. According to the rulebook, Marsh simply stared in the direction of the Steelers camp, which is apparently a language or gesture to opponents.
