Andre Johnson fight with Cortland Finnegan casts ugly shadow over NFL Sunday

November 29, 2010 |  1:42 pm

A great day of NFL football Sunday was overshadowed by Houston receiver Andre Johnson's fight with Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan.

St. Louis Rams rookie quarterback Sam Bradford passed for 300 yards for the first time in his career. Leslie Frazier led the Vikings to victory in his head coaching debut. Three games were decided by field goals in the final seconds or in overtime. And the playoff races got more interesting than ever with only a month left in the regular season.

Yet, this is the image that looms largest from Sunday's action:

Johnson and Finnegan were ejected from the game, a 20-0 Houston victory. No word yet on any other punishment from the league.
