The NFL reportedly told Denver Post reporter Mike Kliss the hit was legal because Liuget made initial contact to Manning's thigh area, then wrapped his arms below the knee. The first contact above the knee was key to the play being deemed legal. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday morning, per a person informed of the situation, that Liuget won't be fined.
