Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct when he dropped to his knees in prayer after an interception, the National Football League said Tuesday.The flag thrown in the fourth quarter of Kansas City's 41-14 victory over the New England Patriots Monday led to criticism on social media, with many wondering how it was different from players such as former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow dropping to one knee in Christian prayer.Abdullah is a devout Muslim who took a year off from American football to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Abdullah is in his second year with the Chiefs after spending an entire season away from the game.In the case of Hamza, it proved costly. He never got a shot to return to the NFL.
