Texans WR Andre Johnson and Titans CB Cortland Finnegan were each ejected during the fourth quarter of the team's game today after exchanging punches.
The two players had been going back and forth verbally all game long, but tempers flared following a running play where Johnson threw a block on Finnegan. Both players were flagged for unnecessary roughness after the receiver ripped off the corner's helmet and landed a punch to his face. Finnegan responded with a couple of swings before both players were taken off the field
The way we see it
Both All Pro players will be hearing from the league office on Monday and don't be surprised if Johnson is suspended for the team's Week 13 game vs. the Eagles for his Manny Pacquiao impression. Finnegan is often referred to as one of the NFL's dirtiest players and he clearly got under the skin of the normally calm Johnson.
