NFL Suspends Rice Indefinitely, Megatron Shines, Chargers Mistakes Pile Up


TMZ story in the football world was new footage of running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee (now wife). The video was released by TMZ and what made everyone scratch their head is how did the NFL not see this video when the case came up.  When the Rice situation exploded this summer, the NFL only suspended Rice for 2 games (for first time domestic offense) but now after seeing the video, he’s been cut by the Ravens and indefinitely suspended from the NFL. Modells and Dicks Sporting Goods has even pulled Rice jerseys from their store. Warning, this video is disturbing to watch.

Calvin JohnsonIn Monday night football action, the first game of the night featured the New York Giants taking on the Detroit Lions. The Lions completely destroyed the Giants. The Lions’ WR Calvin Johnson (knows as Megatron) lived up to his name. He ended the night with 164 yards and 2 TD’s. And, Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford looked solid in his debut under new coach Jim Caldwell.  Lions 35, Giants 14.

In the late game Monday night between the San Diego Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals, there wasn’t much action for the first three quarters, but in the 4th the game started to get exciting.  San Diego was winning by 11 points in the 4th but then with 7 1/2 minutes late, the mistakes started to pile up and with 2 1/2 minutes left, the Cardinals’ rookie wide receiver John Brown caught his first TD and lifted Arizona to a win. Cardinals 18, Chargers 17.
