Top Sports Brawls in History

29 Nov


Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson and Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan were involved in a fist fight that got both players ejected in the fourth quarter Sunday. Finnegan set it off by pushing up Johnson’s face mask at the line of scrimmage. Johnson ripped off Finnegan’s helmet and landed at least two clean punches to Finnegan’s head and neck. Finnegan tore off Johnson’s helmet before players and referees intervened. The game was stopped for more than five minutes as officials sorted out the chaos. Johnson received a standing ovation as security guards escorted him off the field. Finnegan taunted booing fans as he exited out the opposite tunnel. The two had been pushing and jawing earlier in the game, and Johnson has called Finnegan’s antics annoying in the past. Last season, Johnson was fined $7,500 for taking Finnegan to the ground by the facemask during a scuffle after a play in a 34-31 Texans win. So here is a pic of the fight and some shots of fights you might not remember as we look at some of the most legendary fights in sports history.
