Ridiculous Myles Jack flop vs. Packers doesn't fool anyone (video)

Jason Owens
·1-min read

Myles Jack wasn’t fooling anybody on Sunday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker saw a chance to pick up a 15-yard penalty against the Green Bay Packers, and he went for it. Jack tackled Packers running back Tyler Ervin on a first-down pass and laid on top of him after the play.

Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari, who the Packers reportedly signed to the highest-paid deal for an offensive lineman in NFL history, stepped in to remove Jack from atop his teammate with a shove of the shoulders.

Jack responded like he’d been shot.

Good acting effort?

Jack’s acting effort was a clear attempt to elicit a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.

The refs weren’t buying it. The Packers lined up for second-and-6 on their next play en route to a touchdown and 24-20 win. The only thing Jack accomplished was to earn the derision of social media and comparisons to European soccer floppers.
