Rams Blow Up Lions' Victory Formation

The Los Angeles Rams behaved like big meanies at the end of their 31-28 loss in Detroit, possibly inflicting both physical and emotional damage to many of the Lions players.

There are an infinite number of unwritten rules in professional sports, and one of them is the agreement not to blow up the line of scrimmage on a kneel down at the end of the game.

However, the Rams clearly subscribe to another theory.

In what was likely accumulated frustration over the course of the game, several Rams fired hard off the line on the final two plays, even hobbling Matthew Stafford in the process.

Not cool.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher denied giving the order, suggesting his players acted alone.

Hmmm, interesting.

Fisher is not above suspicion here, having been accused of foul play in the past.

But hey, lets take him at his word here. Right?

Lions coach Jim Caldwell, mustering every bit of that dynamic personality, simply stated that this was the Rams' business and that his team is above such tactics.

Meanwhile, the Rams get to act like complete dicks on another continent this week, as they hook up with the Giants in London.
