Three players were ejected for an on-field brawl in the fourth quarter of the Cincinnati Bengals' 34-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, leaving them in line for major fines.
A scrum started when one of Cincinnati's plays was blown dead because of a false start. Defensive end Lamarr Houston tackled quarterback Andy Dalton, apparently unaware of the whistle. Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth ran up to Houston, their facemasks hit and the brawl was on.
Whitworth and Houston were ejected, along with Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly for coming off the bench to join in. Kelly and Houston ended up on top of Whitworth.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said his team -which has dropped four in a row - lost its poise.

Next up for the Raiders is one of the hottest teams in the AFC, with a trip to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. The past two games for the Silver and Black have yielded embarrassing results to say the least.

The Raiders were still smoldering after an official's inadvertent whistle erased what could have been a 25-yard touchdown return of a fumble by Tyvon Branch. Yes, the Raiders acknowledged their role in a 34-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the fact that sleepwalking through a 24-0 first half was ultimately the reason for their demise. Yet a team struggling as much as...
Bengals fans had this game circled on their calendar. For some, this was the game when we could show Palmer what a dumb decision he made by choosing to sit out and eventually join the Raiders over staying in Cincinnati and playing. For others, they wanted to boo the guy for the way he quit. Others just hoped the Bengals could continue their dominance in the last few weeks with...

CINCINNATI - Andrew Whitworth was at the bottom of a large pile of very large people, and he could feel punches hitting his neck, back and shoulders.
The Bengals offensive tackle was there because Raiders defensive tackle Lamarr Houston had hit Andy Dalton late, and Whitworth took exception. Words were exchanged, then Houston lunged at Whitworth, then all sorts of heck broke loose...
This altercation was a bit more physical than we normally see in the NFL, and there were punches thrown. Players came off the bench after Andy Dalton was thrown to the ground after the whistle and the Bengals offensive lineman too exception to it. Three players were ejected and eventually order was restored.H/T: Business Insider
