Fortunately the Texans have got some depth so when the suspension comes down they'll be able to deal with it but it's still unfortunate. Incognito is a pest and a turd but he's not worth losing four games over. Sure, a player has to "protect himself" if the league isn't going to do it but there are ways to protect yourself that don't involve trying to smack the **** out of somebody with their helmet. That's just losing your temper and hurting your team.
Watching it again, there really is no need for Antonio to swing the helmet at him. Yeah Incognito got some hands to the head, but really Antonio was just frustrated because Incognito handled him on that play, roughed him up and had some hands to his face.
