NFL players react to roughing the passer call in Seahawks, 49ers game

Monday December 15th, 2014

In the fourth quarter of a 10-7 game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers, the 49ers thought they had a big stop that would force the Seahawks to kick a field goal, and keep it a one-possession game.

Instead, on third-and-5 from the San Francisco 15, 49ers linebacker Nick Moody was called for roughing the passer. The penalty gave the Seahawks the ball at the 49ers' 7-yard-line, and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a touchdown two plays later.

Many current and former NFL players tweeted their reactions to the play:

St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long:

Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett:

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Larry Foote:

Former 49ers cornerback Eric Wright:
