After the Steelers scored to close to 13-7 in the third quarter, Jones broke free down the sideline but slowed up with Tomlin on the white stripe near the field of play — with his foot on the field at one point as Jones neared his location. Tomlin, who had his back to the play, was not penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct but Flacco believes he should have been.
UPDATE – 11:40am: Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the NFL will review it for discipline.
The Mike Tomlin foot on the field play to be reviewed under @NFL's normal procedures for possible discipline, per source. Decision next week
