As the “Horns Down” taunting drama envelops the Big 12 ahead of the 2021 season, the NFL is also cracking down on taunting.

Per the league’s annual rule change and points of emphasis video, referees are going to be focusing on cutting down taunting across the board.

Per NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, 2 taunting penalties in a game will result in an ejection. He notes that fines and even suspensions are possible for repeat offenders:

Pelissero shared a quote from competition committee chairman Rich McKay discussing the increased enforcement of taunting:

Who will be the first player suspended under these new taunting enforcement procedures in the NFL? We’ll see if the issue comes up in 2021.
