Jordan Matthews' helmet bent and he required a new facemask and visor following a hit to the head by Atlanta Falcons safety Keanu Neal in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 24-15 win on Sunday. No penalty flag was thrown.

"I definitely think it was a penalty," Matthews said. "...But at the end of the day we got the win, so I will take a bloody lip if we get a win.”

 Coach Doug Pederson did not get an explanation for why there was no penalty flag on the play. Matthews said the training staff examined him to make sure there was not a concussion, but he was fine to return to the game. He joked that they played "Who wants to be a Millionaire?" and Matthews answered the questions correctly. He expects the NFL to review the play. 
“I don’t know what [the officials] saw out there,” Matthews said. “I don’t know if they were watching football games or thinking of going to [Chickie’s and Pete’s] later. …But there was a football game going on where I got hit in the face.”

Neal told reporters after the game that he believed he hit Matthews in the sternum and not the head.

"I heard the [crowd's] reaction, but I didn't see a flag," Neal said. "I thought it was a clean hit. …I don't attempt to hit them in the head. That's not me. We're big on the strike zone and in the National Football League they're big on head-to-head collisions and targeting fouls. I try my hardest to make sure my hits are legal and they didn't call a flag today."
