San Diego linebacker Takeo Spikes and Oakland running back Mike Goodson have been ejected after a skirmish in the second quarter of Sunday's game.
Spikes had to be restrained by field judge Scott Edwards from going after referee John Parry. As he was leaving the field, Spikes took off his helmet and flung it. Teammate Melvin Ingram caught it.
Backup tight end Randy McMichael walked Spikes to the tunnel and the two hugged.
Goodson was blocking Spikes when the two locked up. It continued after the play ended.
Oakland scored two plays later to pull to 10-7.

I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what kind...
