Per the NFL rules, a player can't throw a ball into the crowd because it can create a potential problem with fans fighting for the ball, much in the way fans go after foul balls in baseball.
The difference is, in baseball it's unintentional, and in the NFL, a player will be $5,250 lighter in the wallet for doing so.
He can however, hand a ball to a fan in the first or second row.
Brandon Marshall found that out the hard way as the NFL has fined him the aforementioned amount for throwing a ball into the stands after scoring a touchdown Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
At least someone got to bring a ball home.

The Bears have to keep winning if they want to make the playoffs.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.
Here's a look at week 16
Atlanta at Detroit - The Falcons destroyed the Giants last week and silenced a few critics that say they can't win the big game. I still want to see what...
Chicago Bears offensive tackle Gabe Carimi suffered a season ending injuring during the second game of his rookie season. Carimi's knee injury was never made clear by the Bears or media reports that came from the Bear beat writers. Sean Jensen of the Chicago SunTimes called Carimi's injury a knee dislocation, while Michael C Wright of ESPN radio Chicago referred to Carimi...

What depressing note can we illuminate that hasnt already been illuminated in this 30-car pile-up of a season? What strength can we muster for yet another grim game preview?
Following a 4-0 start, the Cards have lost nine of their last 10...

I detailed the Giants/Bears battle for the 6th seed in the Giants’ write up. The Bears should take care of their business and beat the Cardinals and Detroit. They’ve beaten everyone they’re supposed to, going 7-0 SU as favorites of 3.5 or more this year. That would put...

It wasn’t the prettiest victory, but the Chicago Bears got the job done in Arizona on Sunday afternoon. The Bears won 28-13 and improved to 9...
So special teams is one of those things that no fan knows about but we all love to gripe about. For instance, other than the kicker, punter, long snapper and gunner, do you know the name of any other position? I sure don’t but I will yell at the screen when the guy misses a block. This is essentially what happened during the “punt, pass and puke” play as quoted by Drew...
The Arizona Cardinals defense allow 335.8 ypg which ranks 11th in the league. They allow 21.6 ppg as well.
They’ve done a solid job at stopping the pass allowing just 199.3 ypg through the air, which ranks fourth.
However they haven’t found a way to stop the run this season. They rank 28th allowing 136.5 yards per game on the ground.
The Chicago Bears need to capitalize on the...
