WATCH: Refs miss vicious facemask as Miles Sanders’ head almost ripped off

Detroit Lions linebacker Miles Killebrew came close to living up to his name against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Check out Killebrew almost literally rip off Eagles running back Miles Sanders’ head.

The fact that the refs on hand in Philadelphia didn’t call a penalty here is absolutely insane.

After all, zebras are out here protecting quarterbacks at a ridiculous clip through the first couple weeks of the season.

We guess running backs are not as important. Their lives matter less than quarterbacks. Just ask Mr. Sanders.
