Across the NFL, few see flopping as an issue

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Flopping in football? Really? As counter-intuitive as it may seem to take a dive to draw a penalty in a full-contact sport like football, a couple of plays during the current NFL season have begged that very question.

Jimmy Graham’s Game-Winning Hail Mary Catch Negated By Penalty (GIFs)

It’s become clear that no one in the NFL can stop Jimmy Graham. Except Jimmy Graham. That’s exactly what happened to the New Orleans Saints tight end Sunday afternoon. With one play left in regulation and his team tied with the San Francisco 49ers, quarterback Drew Brees heaved the ball 50 yards toward the end zone. Graham, of course, came down with the ball for the apparent...
