With about 13 minutes left in the quarter and the Raiders up 17-13, Las Vegas punter A.J. Cole booted the ball down the field and out of bounds. The play seemed to be over but then Raiders safety Roderic Teamer and Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph started to fight each other after the whistle.

The players rolled with each other toward the stands when special teams players from both teams started to push and shove each other more as they were trying to break up the skirmish. The fight didn’t go into the stands but it appeared at least one player got a full hand of the opposing player’s facemask.
After the dust was settled, both Teamer and Joseph were ejected from the game.
According to Pro Football Talk, field judge Tom Hill came away with a bloodied chin.

A definite fine and possible suspensions will likely be handed down once the NFL reviews the incident.
