Late in the second quarter of Sunday night’s game between the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots, Packers defensive back Jermaine Whitehead was ejected for slapping a Patriots lineman.

He did slap the man’s helmet, as you’ll see here.

But honestly we’ve seen far worse not be penalized to the extent that this was.

This ejection was a big blow to a Packers secondary that’s already depleted, especially going up against a master like Tom Brady.
