Video: Lamar Jackson called for horse collar tackle after interception
Lamar Jackson was called for a horse collar tackle after throwing an interception in the first quarter of his Baltimore Ravens’ playoff game against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night.
Jackson threw a pass on Baltimore’s opening drive that was intended for Mark Andrews. The ball tipped out of Andrews’ hands and was intercepted by Kevin Byard, who began returning the ball the other way. Jackson was able to tackle him but went high to do so and got called for a horse collar infraction.

CBS rules analyst Gene Steratore said he did not believe a horse collar penalty was appropriate because he did not see the quarterback dig under Byard’s pads for the tackle. Still, the foul was called, and the Titans ended up with great field position at the Baltimore 35 as a result.
