During last Sunday's San Diego Chargers/Baltimore Ravens affair, a sack by Chargers rookie Corie Liuget turned a little flagrant for one Baltimore Ravens fan who might have received an unexpected face full of jeans.
Keep eye on the San Diego fan at the eight second mark as he guides a Ravens fan's head right near his crotch:

As underdogs, as they were last week, Rivers was 12-4 ATS in week 11 or...
