He then took it 75 yards to the house, but on the way, he made sure to throw up a peace sign to the Patriots secondary.
As one source with extensive knowledge of the league's rules told PFT, Hill directed the gesture at an opponent, so it should have been a foul for taunting.
The problem with Hill's peace sign isn't the fact he did it, but it's because he did it in the direction of a defender.
According to the National Football League rulebook, one manifestation of unsportsmanlike behavior is "the use of baiting or taunting acts or words that engender ill will between teams".
While taking questions after the game, Reid revealed that it was Hill who approached him with the play call, after giving credit to Smith and the whole offense for the win.
The Patriots sent a booming kick down the field, and as Thomas was fielding the punt, Hill called for a fair catch. For context as to how much the fine could be, let's look at a case a year ago involving Odell Beckham Jr.
With the line of scrimmage set about an inch short of the Kansas City 25-yard-line, the Chiefs wide receiver could be seen lining up with his foot well beyond that mark.
If Hill does end up getting fined, we'd likely have to hear it from him first.
