Things are getting tense in Philadelphia as tempers flare between the Ravens and the Eagles. DeSean Jackson tried to throw a match in the tinderbox early, throwing a few punches on Baltimore cornerback Cary Williams. Both players were flagged for offsetting penalties.
Jackson is one of the smaller players on the field in this game, if not the smallest, so it only stands to reason that he would be the one involved in the scrum. Of course, Jackson wasn't the only one mixing it up. The highlights below:
when i was in school, the presence of substitute teachers GREATLY increased the chance of a fight. watching eagles-ravens?— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) September 16, 2012
DeSean Jackson, moments after fight, celebrates wildly after first down. We will see at least one more fight today, I think.— Michael Tanier (@MikeTanier) September 16, 2012
