Pittman and Dugger expelled for attempted row

The referees decided to expel both players. By then the Patriots were down 20-0 at Indianapolis

Indianapolis Colts receiver Michel Pittman and New England Patriots safety Kyle Dugger were ejected from the Week 15 game for an attempted brawl.

On third down in territory for the Patriots, after a minor running play, Pittman and Dugger faced each other; the offensive player was pushed from behind by another Pat, and began to grapple on the ground with Dugger.

The referees decided to expel both players. By then the Patriots trailed 20-0 at Indianapolis in the third quarter of Saturday night’s game.

After this game, the Patriots will face the Buffalo Bills, divisional rivals; Colts will travel to the Arizona Cardinals. Both organizations are looking for a strong closure in the face of the playoffs, where everything seems to indicate that New England will be there; Indianapolis fights for a spot against Buffalo, Browns, Bengas, Broncos, all at (7-6) before this week.
