Sort of an irrelevant question, but does anyone know why Darrell Reid still got a sack when he was called for a penalty on the play (believe it was "Illegal Use of the Hands")... Just curious why he would still get credit for a sack.

Also - he has been a pretty solid contributor so far. 2 sacks, and I believe he also recovered a fumble in the Browns game. Looks like he's not playing OLB at all, though. Seems to strictly be playing on the line in nickel situations.

Sacks still count if there is a penalty called. I remember during Dumervil's rookie year, he had 3 sacks against the Raiders, and one of them came with a penalty, but it stood.

My only sack ever in 4 years of high school playing on the D-Line came on a play during which a teammate was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. Still counted!!! :)

Because the penalty isn't a no-play penalty. Essentially the result of the play stands and the penalty is then assessed to the result of the play (in my understanding).

Thats why the Raiders went from starting at the 10 on the play to the 15, Reids sack was on like the 2 yard line.
