KANSAS CITY: Kansas City Chiefs player Husain Abdullah was slapped with a 15-yard penalty in Monday’s (Tuesday in Manila) NFL contest after punctuating a fourth quarter touchdown by dropping to his knees in prayer, the US media reported. Abdullah, a devout Muslim, slid to his knees after intercepting a Tom Brady pass for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter of the Chiefs 41-14 win over the New England Patriots. He then leaned forward and pressed his forehead against the end zone grass. It is technically a violation of the National Football League’s “excessive celebration” rules after scores to do what Abdullah did. Whether the penalty was for sliding or the bowing in prayer is unclear.
