    Nice hit…Bostic is having a great preseason showing so far.

    Love your coverage and the huge hit, but A) it wasn’t a fumble and B) Major is #21, not #31 and didn’t recover the non-fumble

    • You’re 100% right. Major Wright recovered a fumble in the same game. I got confused. Thanks.

    • HeadOfficial says:

      The Bostic hit was a clean hit and caused the SD player to fumble the ball. The SD player caught the screen pass and made an athletic move of several steps which meets the criteria to rule that the player fumbled the ball!

    Teddy Bridgewater just changed his pants again after seeing that…

    Perfect Anchorman reference.

    Cannot believe the NFL just fined Bostic $21,000 for that LEGAL hit!!!!! I think the NFL should NOT issue fines when there was NO flag thrown! I mean come on now, all those refs and no one saw anything that deserved a flag.

    Great hit Bostic!
