Whitworth Says Raiders Players Who Hit Him and Poked His Face are “Cowards”

Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth says the Raiders who hit him and poked his face during an on-field skirmish are “cowards” who should be heavily fined by the NFL.

Whitworth and Raiders linemen Lamarr Houston and Tommy Kelly were ejected during the fourth quarter of Cincinnati’s 34-10 victory on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Whitworth expects a heavy fine for his role in what developed into an on-field brawl, but hadn’t received anything from the league on Wednesday.

He confronted Houston — going facemask-to-facemask — after the defensive end tackled quarterback Andy Dalton even though a play had been whistled dead because of a false-start penalty. Others joined in, swinging.

Whitworth said the Raiders who took swings at him should be punished.
