CINCINNATI (AP) - Three players were ejected for an on-field brawl in the fourth quarter of the Cincinnati Bengals' 34-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, leaving them in line for major fines.
A scrum started when one of Cincinnati's plays was blown dead because of a false start. Defensive end Lamarr Houston tackled quarterback Andy Dalton, apparently unaware of the whistle. Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth ran up to Houston, their facemasks hit and the brawl was on.
Whitworth and Houston were ejected, along with Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly for coming off the bench to join in. Kelly and Houston ended up on top of Whitworth.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said his team -which has dropped four in a row - lost its poise.
