With 7 minutes remaining in the Texans-Titans game, things got heated on the field.  Tennessee’s cornerback Cortland Finnegan came at Houston’s wide receiver Andre Johnson jabbing at his face mask.  Andre Johnson began to fight back throwing Cortland Finnegan’s helmet to the ground.  The two began to tangle and Finnegan got a hold off Johnson’s helmet flailing it down the field.  Johnson then tossed Finnegan to the ground landing a punch directly to the back side of his head.  The referees and other players began to break up the fight as nearly 40 players/coaches were on the field.  Both Johnson and Finnegan were ejected for fighting.

According to NFL.com, Johnson had shoved Finnegan the previously play.  Finnegan then told the Texans bench “Watch this” and attacked Johnson as the play began.  Bleacherreport.com ranks Finnegan as the tenth dirtiest player in the league.  After the game, Andre Johnson was apologetic and said that he wished it never happened.  Both players are likely to receive a pretty big fine from the NFL.
