Chiefs and Raiders fight, Marshawn Lynch ejected

New, comments

It’s a Chiefs and Raiders game because we have some fighting. The Chiefs and Raiders went at it after Marcus Peters hit Derek Carr late and then Marshawn Lynch was ejected after making contact with an official while apparently trying to protect Peters.

This started because Peters hit Carr late. At least it looked late to me when watching it but I don’t know when the whistle actually blew it dead. Chiefs DE Allen Bailey was taking Carr to the ground on a play that looked to be about over. Peters came in and hit Carr as he was going down (again, I didn’t hear a whistle). They flagged Peters for that late hit.

The two teams started pushing and shoving after the Raiders players came to Carr’s defense. Marshawn Lynch then CAME RUNNING FROM THE SIDELINES and made contact with an official. It looked like he was pushing Peters back at one point like he wanted him to stay away from it. He and Peters have a longtime history in Oakland together. Was he protecting Peters? If so those Oakland ties run deep.

Watch this one and the theory he was protecting Peters makes sense:

I’m not sure what the story was but I can’t emphasize how crazy it was seeing Lynch running from the sideline into the fray. He appeared to grab the official and that’s usually an automatic ejection.
