Prior to the Dolphins blowing a 27-13 lead over the Titans with less than three minutes remaining in the game, Chubb’s penalty was called.
Bradley Chubb, the standout pass rusher for the Miami Dolphins, was struck with a critical penalty during Monday Night Football’s 28-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
In the process, the 27-year-old linebacker who has played in two NFL Pro Bowls was unlucky enough to be the victim of a little-known penalty regulation.
