1 of 2

Yesterday’s Thanksgiving slate of NFL games went pretty much as expected — the Packers beat the Lions, the Cowboys beat the Dolphins, and the Ravens took it to the 49ers — but the biggest play of the day didn’t have much to do with playing football.

During the third quarter of the Packers – Lions game defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was engaged with Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith when he apparently took offence to the way Smith was holding him on the ground.

Suh pushed Smith’s helmet to the ground several times before he stood up and attempted to stomp him, enciting boo’s from the crowd that rang loud through the stadium.

He claimed that he was only trying to rip his leg free of Smiths’ grasp, but the referee’s saw it differently and ejected him from the game.
