By rule if you lead with the crown of the helmet. Does not have to be helmet to helmet. Disagree with it myself but it is what it is

The rule sucks but he literally speared the guy. Have to protect defenders from hurting themselves.

Ejection is too extreme though unless it's a dangerous hit on the WR. Simple 15 yds should deter a guy from spearing period.
You'd think appreciation for your own neck would be a strong enough deterrent... But the instinct to lower your head is real. Gotta coach it out of guys at a young age.

The head is in front so what should a player lead with? Put a hand in front, dude mad e a form tackle striking the shoulder. BS call...
Nah, man. He's got to keep his eyes up. Drive the facemask into the chest/shoulder, not the top of the helmet. That's how you jack up your neck.
