The NFL referees are certainly testing out this new targeting rule in the preseason. We saw a Chicago Bear get flagged for something ridiculous in the Hall of Fame Game. It was a little quieter in some games, but then showed again how much of a disaster it can be over the weekend. If these rules continue down the path they are on, safety might become an obsolete position. In this weekend's game between the Cardinals and Chargers. Travell Dixon put down a hard, but textbook hit and well got flagged for it. Check it out below and decide for yourself.
