The Cowboys-Raiders have two players expelled in combat

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

There was not much holiday cheer for the Las Vegas Raiders or Dallas Cowboys early in the third quarter Thursday. Two players got off to an early start on their Thanksgiving dinners.

At one point early in the second half, one who went off the field, two special teams played far past the whistle. Kelvin Joseph of the Cowboys and Roderic Teemer of the Raiders were locked up and refused to let go. They were far beyond the borders and still fighting. It made players from both teams hurry to the sideline and intervene.

Joseph and Teemer were both thrown out. The one who might have gotten the worst out of the fight was side referee Tom Hill. Hill came out of the scrum with a bloody chin. He got a patch and stayed in the game. It is not easy to break a match between several players, who all wear pillows and helmets.

You will not see a host of games spill over onto the sidelines of an NFL game. It added a little extra spice to the second Thanksgiving game.
