In one of the dirties hits all season, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas purposely targeted Denver Broncos star cornerback Chris Harris Jr.’s knee on a play away from the ball. The video looks pretty damning and Harris looked like he could have suffered a serious injury form the blow.
It took exactly one play for Aqib Talib to take matters into his own hands to let Douglas know that his actions were unacceptable. The ensuing brawl resulted in an unsportsmanlike penalty from Talib and a 15-yard penalty.

I suppose the league felt both sides took care of it. I am not sure what other logic they could be exercising here other than deciding that Douglas made a legal hit, but that Talib’s reaction was justified as the hit was kind of dirty.
Whatever, moving on as they say.
