The outcome isn’t in doubt in Cincinnati, but the game is still interesting.

One play after a turnover by the Bengals was wiped out by an inadvertent whistle, a brawl broke out with three players being ejected. Given the shoe were Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth, Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston, and Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly.

Kelly’s ejection came from the fact that he entered the field of play from the sideline.

The Bengals lead, 34-10.
