The NFL has come down hard on taunting this season, and on Sunday Detroit Lions offensive lineman Jonah Jackson was given a costly unsportsmanlike conduct after insulting Cleveland Browns defender Jadeveon Clowney’s mother. 

Lions coach Dan Campbell told reporters after the game that both sides were going at it late in the third quarter when “something about somebody’s mother” was said.

“First of all I should have never even put my team in that situation, but it was the heat of the moment, heat of the game,” Jackson said of the insult. “We actually chopped it up after, apologized. It was both sides, but definitely should have never been in that situation to begin with.”
