Aqib Talib pokes Dwayne Allen in eye, gets costly penalty
Aqib Talib was hit with a penalty late in the Denver Broncos’ game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday after poking Dwayne Allen in the eye, and the play ended up costing the Broncos dearly.
Allen and Von Miller got into it after a rushing play by the Colts on second down with under three minutes left. After the two exchanged shoves, Talib came in late and poked Allen in the eye:

A personal foul was called on Talib, which helped give the Colts the game. With the fresh set of downs, the Colts then ran down the clock to 28 seconds left. Then after another Denver penalty on a field goal attempt, the Colts were able to run out the clock and win 27-24.
