The Cowboys lost to the Eagles on Sunday, and two key Cowboys players lost some money for his or her actions in the course of the game.
And Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs was fined $9,577 for unsportsmanlike conduct for taking off his helmet after an Eagles touchdown.
Parsons, who drew a 15-yard penalty, said after the sport that he knows he can’t cost his team like that.
“It’s just passion of the sport. You play the sport with passion, you play it with heart, and sometimes you may overdo it,” Parsons said. “Football’s a game of a chat trash and hitting people. And I believed it [the flag] was slightly bit late, but I’ve got to be accountable for that and never surrender the primary down for my team.”
Although fans and players often complain that the NFL’s crackdown on taunting takes things too far, the league has made clear that players will proceed to be flagged and fined once they do it.
