Bet on the NFL Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill told reporters Thursday that a New England Patriots defender attempted to break his left arm in the Lions' 45-24 loss to the Patriots, according to MLive.com. Hill said the incident occurred in the second quarter on a third-down quarterback keeper from the Patriots' 2-yard line. Hill ran into the pile for the first down, and extended his arm in an attempt to score the touchdown.
Hill claims that is why he eventually gave up the ball. Hill told the newspaper. He said that somebody was down there in the pile, literally trying to break his arm, which is actually already broken. Literally someone was intentionally trying, but it was not seen by officials.
Hill, who broke the arm against the New York Giants in Week 6, had no problem with the play call, saying that he loved the call, and had no qualms about running that play, one-armed and all. Hill was 27-of-46 passing for 285 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
