Statement from NFL on Golden Tate fine

We asked the NFL why Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate was fined for his hit on Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee. Here is V.P. of communications  Greg Aiello’s response:

“It was an illegal blindside block against a defenseless player. Page 67 of the rule book. Unnecessary contact against a defenseless player is prohibited. That includes “a player who receives a ‘blindside’ block when the blocker is moving toward or parallel to his own end line and approaches the opponent form behind or from the side.”
