Folks are still trying to wrap their minds around the fact that the sixth-seeded Tennessee Titans waltzed into M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday night and stunned the No.1 seed Baltimore Ravens to the tune of a 28-12 shellacking. It would appear, however, that some Titans were downright classless en route to victory.
Ravens veteran offensive guard Marshal Yanda alleged that Titans rookie defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons spit in his face during the game.
"I do want to say another thing about No. 98 for the Titans," Yanda told reporters. "I had that guy spit in my face today. I just want to put him on notice in the media. I have never done this in my career, but I just want to let you know that."
"There is right way and a wrong way to play football, and that guy did not do it the right way," the eight-time Pro Bowl selection continued. “He needs to be put on notice by the refs, by the entire NFL. And he was saying some stuff today that was just ridiculous conduct for the NFL."
There's simply no way to confirm if Yanda's claims are true, but we're talking about a guy that has spent 13 years in trenches.
He's surely seen it all, and perhaps the league will grant his wish and keep close tabs on Simmons for the remainder of the postseason.
