Charles Woodson Fight Video: Watch Packers CB's Uppercut on Saints TE

Collin McCollough@cmccolloNFL Deputy EditorSeptember 9, 2011

Thursday night's game between the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers hasn't stopped at featuring an old-fashioned scoreboard slugfest, at least thanks to the third-quarter actions of Packers cornerback Charles Woodson.

During a scrum at the end of the third quarter, Woodson responded to what he felt was a late blocking effort by Saints tight end David Thomas by throwing an uppercut toward the New Orleans blocker.  Saints head coach Sean Payton could be seen immediately afterward pleading with the officials to eject Woodson from the game.

Woodson was allowed to remain in the game, despite an act NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth identified as ejection-worthy.  Green Bay was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play.

Questions will certainly linger as to whether or not Woodson should have been ejected according to the NFL rulebook, and what sort of impact his absence may have had on the game.  Certainly, it would have opened the field a bit for Drew Brees and the Saints offense.
