Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson took it to Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan yesterday In one of the most legit on-field fights we've seen in a long time.

The two have a history of getting into it. Then again, who doesn't have a history of getting into it with Finnegan?

After a long day of battle, the cornerback pushed up Johnson's facemask at the line of scrimmage during the fourth quarter.

It was the last straw. The last haymaker-yielding straw.

After the game, Johnson apologized to his teammates, the orginization and fans for his actions, which are out of character for a player known for being soft-spoken.

We'll soon know if his punches will earn him a suspension ...

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson has found a scapegoat for his drop of a potential game-winning pass in overtime of a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.


After the game yesterday, Johnson took to Twitter in order to call out The Big Guy.

"I praise you 24/7!!! And this is how you do me!!I," a tweet from his account cried out, "You expect me to learn from this??How??? I'll never forget this!! Ever!! Thx Tho."

As of this morning, there's been no Twitter response from God.

Surely, you'll enjoy

Remembering Leslie Nielsen, the greatest umpire in the history of baseball, this morning.

Tip drill

Oklahoma State's Brodrick Brown and Shaun Lewis show us the real meaning of teamwork with this amazing interception.

And finally ...

The world's next great debate/reason for body-language experts to get on television is upon us.

Here is video of LeBron James bumping into Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.

As with any great debate, there are only two diametrically opposed camps.

The first believes this was an accident.

The other believes it was an intentionally and the beginning of the end for Spoelstra in Miami.

Decide now which one you belong in.
