I wouldn't mind if kickers were treated more like QBs. Which is to say, hitting them in the chest is always legal.
I can understand throwing a flag for hitting them in the legs, and head shots are always illegal against someone who is essentially defenseless, but I'm not sure I feel a penalty is warranted if the guy hits him in the chest and knocks him on the ass, contact with the ball or not.
Also while I'm at it I have no idea what happened I'm not watching, just tossing in my two cents.
A member of the receiving team may not run into or rough a kicker who kicks from behind his line unless contact is:
(a) Incidental to and after he had touched ball in flight.
(b) Caused by kicker’s own motions.
(c) Occurs during a quick kick, or a kick made after a run behind the line, or after kicker recovers a loose ball on the ground. Ball is loose when kicker muffs snap or snap hits ground.
(d) Defender is blocked into kicker.
