The NFL has made an official decision about Deshaun Watson's punishment.

Deshaun Watson was at the center of numerous controversial plays and penalties that contributed to the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

The Cleveland Browns quarterback was involved in a confrontation with an opposition player and was flagged twice for egregious facemask violations and making contact with an official.

Contact with an official is cause for instant punishment, up to and including suspension

However, the NFL has opted to show Watson more mercy than usual.

There will be no repercussions for the Browns QB's communication with the ref.

Officials are responsible for keeping the peace on the field, and in the course of their duty

they may come into accidental touch with players. As reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the league decided 

that the contact in question "did not rise to the level of a foul" on Tuesday.
