This is one of the most vicious rumbles I've seen as far as punches being thrown.

Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan were going at it all game, but it came to fruition once helmets were ripped off.

Last week it was Richard Seymour with a punch dropping Big Ben. Seymour was ejected.

This time, Johnson and Finnegan were both ejected for their actions.

In the locker room after the game, Andre Johnson was awarded the game ball and expressed his sorrow by speaking very subdued.

You have to wonder what is being said between the athletes on the field.

Is Andre Johnson the king of smack talking? Did Cortland Finnegan provoke him?

Likely the latter of the two.

This is something Roger Goodell will have to look over, but it certainly looks as if Andre Johnson will be suspended for throwing punches at a player with no helmet on.

Finnegan is not exactly the victim, as various receivers have expressed their displeasure with the way he throws his bump move off the line of scrimmage. Still, Andre has to be the bigger man.

The Texans rolled the Titans, and if I were a Titan, I'd be angry with the performance my team had earlier today, as well.

Cortland Finnegan was almost certainly trying to do what he could in a lopsided loss: He got into the head of the star receiver on the Texans.

I guess you could say that Finnegan was victorious in his unorthodox approach.

In any case, take a look at this video. It is unbelievable, and I'm sure the video will be viral shortly, due to the fact that Andre Johnson got off two solid punches on a player without a helmet.

To Andre Johnson's credit, he owned Finnegan in all aspects of the brawl. Finnegan was just trying to maintain, as the big receiver whaled on him.
