Vikings go below the belt in scuffle with Packers

As divisional rivals, the Packers and Vikings have a long history of not liking each other. That bubbled onto the field in Minnesota on Sunday. Vikings defensive end Brian Robison delivered an extra hit to Green Bay's T.J. Lang in a spot a little more sensitive for men.

In a close game with a divisional rival, that was dumb. In a close game with a divisional rival and the referee so close that he is in the camera frame, that's monumentally stupid. Robison was flagged for unnecessary roughness for his Rockettes impression, giving the Packers an extra 15 yards. That kick will also likely hurt his wallet, because it's a safe bet that Robison will hear from the NFL this week.
