The official thought Clark hit Cruz in the head. Clark's reputation might not have helped, but he told Jay Glazer on Thursday's "NFL Total Access" that he has no regrets.
"I feel like because guys know if they come in here, 25 is still going to strike you, he's still going to continue to play football the way he's played it, and actually within the rules."
We know exactly the play Clark is referencing. He's not exaggerating. Cruz shied away from being hit later in the game.
