Broncos safety Kareem Jackson ejected for hit on Commanders tight end; defense goes into tailspin

DENVER (AP) — Big-hitting Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson was disqualified Sunday in the second quarter for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Washington tight end Logan Thomas in the end zone. Thomas hauled in a 4-yard TD pass from Sam Howell before taking a blow from Jackson. Several Commanders took exception and confronted Jackson before being separated. The officials called Jackson for a personal foul after he launched himself at Thomas. Thomas left the game and was being evaluated for a concussion. Jackson’s ejection sent the Broncos’ defense into a tailspin, and the Commanders rallied from a 21-3 deficit to win 35-33.
