Steelers LB Bud Dupree fined for obviously illegal but not penalized hit on Russell Wilson

One of the biggest moments of the Seattle Seahawks’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers was Pete Carroll successfully challenging that Tyler Lockett was interfered with on a 2nd and 20 play deep down the field. What also happened on that play that should’ve given the Seahawks an automatic first down was a very obvious yet somehow not flagged helmet to helmet shot by Bud Dupree on Russell Wilson.

Obviously a 15-yard penalty compared to 38 yards means quite a bit, but perhaps Carroll would’ve never challenged the DPI had the refs done their job and flagged the Dupree hit right away.
