He did not fall into Palmer, he shoved Palmer after being knocked to the ground. His momentum played no part in the contact to Palmer's legs. His zeal to knock him down "2 seconds after the throw was made" was what drove him to do it. This is better known as a CHEAP SHOT. Some are better (circumstances make it appear as an unfortunate thing and fools the refs) than others and this one was one of those.
But it is football. These things happen. I don't like it and I will forever despise Kimo, but this is what happens in a rough game. And if it had been a Bengals d-lineman doing it to Ben, I'd probably be defending that Bengals player and claiming that it was an accident. Such is the NFL!
