Vikings DE Brian Robison shouldn't expect a Christmas card this winter from OT T.J. Lang, but he may see a FedEx package from the league office in his mailbox instead.

Robison delivered a cheap shot kick to Lang's private parts on Sunday in the second quarter of their game, which resulted in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The Green Bay offensive lineman said following the game he was still feeling the affects of Robison's foot.

"It was in the sweet spot," Lang told the Green Bay Press Gazette. "In my opinion, it was a pretty cowardly move. I didn't do anything dirty to the guy. I don't know what he was upset about. He decided to kick me right in the groin. You never want to see that in a football game. I'm just proud of the way I responded. I didn't throw any punches. It was really hard for me to keep my cool."

Robison apologized on Twitter for his actions, saying it was unintentional where his foot landed. That may not be enough, however, to prevent a fine from the league for his actions.
