What is the NFL's definition of taunting? That reaction by Chubb (slamming the helmet) did not look like what I consider "taunting". I don't think any opposing player viewed that as taunting. He looks as if he is upset with himself.

Usually, taking off helmet on the field would be 'Unsportsmanlike Conduct' or so.. I've not seen the play, if he didn't direct it to or near opponents, hard to consider it as taunting.

Chubb was flagged for "Unsportsmanlike Conduct" for slamming his helmet, and he was upset for having tried and failed to tackle Levis, and watching him run for alot of yards as a result.

 

As for taunting, I guess it's whatever the refs think a player is doing to show up an opponent.

I was mistaken. I thought he was called for taunting, but @Lancer1 clarified that Chubb was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

 

"Unsportsmanlike conduct" could mean any action that a ref believes is unbecoming of a player or coach?? It seems like a judgment call. I would consider celebrating to be somewhat "unsportsmanlike". Taunting also falls under that category. For those concerned about refs making a bad judgment call at the end of games, "unsportsmanlike conduct" is what would worry me most. The NFL should clarify exactly what is "unsportsmanlike".

Throwing helmet on the field gets that unsportsmanlike conduct penalty almost  every time, think of penalty given to Diggs in Minneapolis Miracle play. 

 

Even talking off the helmet on the field unless it comes off during the play gets it, so players usually take off as they walk off close to the sidelines.
