Lions' Dominic Raiola stomps on opponent in shocking incident

Football News

Detroit Lions edged out the Chicago Bears on Sunday to maintain their position at the top of the NFC North, but the 20-14 win came at a huge cost.

The business end of the season is always pressurized, and it seems that starting Lions’ center Dominic Raiola is one player susceptible to losing his cool in big games.

A few weeks ago it was Raiola who caused controversy when he almost started a brawl against the New England Patriots late in the game, but this week Raiola chose to do something even more despicable.

Horrific scenes 

In the second-half of the Lions’ 20-14 win in Chicago, Raiola deliberately stomped on the ankle of opposing lineman Ego Ferguson in a terrible incident that can be seen on THIS LINK.

The Lions may already be in the playoffs, but should Raiola receive a ban for this incident, which he deserves, then the key offensive lineman will miss Detroit’s trip to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers next week, where the NFC North title will be on the line.

If and when Raiola does receive his ban, he certainly will be regretting his despicable actions today when he’s stood on the sideline in the freezing cold up in Green Bay next Sunday.
