The Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys are battling on Thanksgiving, and that battle turned into an especially physical one on the first possession of the second half. After the Raiders went three-and-out, AJ Cole came on to punt. While the boot went out of bounds at the Cowboys’ 17-yard line, the play was not over.

Cowboys rookie cornerback Kelvin Joseph and Raiders safety Roderic Teamer continued shoving each other out of bounds, and it drew the attention of virtually everyone on the field. In the midst of fisticuffs, one of the officials, Tom Hill, was bloodied on the chin. Joseph and Teamer were immediately ejected. 

Check out what happened, here:

Hill was bandaged up and returned to action immediately, and this officiating crew wasted no time ejecting the guilty parties. This incident occurred while the Raiders held a 17-13 lead over the Cowboys. Dallas was a 7.5-point favorite heading into this matchup, and 6-1 against the spread, but it’s been Las Vegas who has held the upper hand thus far. Maybe this fight will jolt something loose for America’s Team.
