Bengals Replay Third Down Three Times And Three Players Ejected

Midway through the fourth quarter, things quickly got out of hand.

A Mohamed Sanu fumble on third and six with 7:16 remaining in the third quarter was recovered by Joselio Hanson, who returned the football into the endzone for the touchdown. At least it was supposed to be. Oakland's celebration was fortunately interrupted after an official inadvertently called the play dead with a whistle and the Bengals were given the choice to replay the down. Honestly if we were Raiders fans, we'd be beyond angry.

Apparently the Raiders were pissed off (and they should be) and Lamarr Houston took it out with a rough quarterback sack on Andy Dalton during the replayed third down. Andrew Whitworth took serious issue and went into bloodrage mode, going after Houston. When it was all said and done, three players were ejected, including Whitworth, Houston and Tommie Harris who came off the bench. The Bengals were given a third attempt at a third down and Andy Dalton completed a 48-yard pass to A.J. Green.

Just another day at Paul Brown Stadium.
