Confused about leading with the head in the NFL. Last night's game.

Having watched that Cincinnati melt-down last night, one thing sticks in my head that turned the fans really sour. Steelers linebacker, Shazier put his helmet into a Bengals receiver, but no penalty was called. It was a vicious hit, but neither Nantz nor Simms thought it was a penalty because the receiver wasn't defenseless or something to that effect. I am confused. I thought it was always a penalty to lead with your head? This penalty looked equally as bad as the Bengals head shot to Antonio Brown.

I'm excusing the Bengals and their fans for how classless they were, I just want clarification over the rules. I thought it was always a penalty to lead with your helmet.
