Richard Seymour Hits Ben In The Chops

((HT: Youtube/NFL on CBS))

Oakland Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour was ejected from today's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers for an open-handed punch/slap/shove to Ben Roethlisberger's face as he celebrated a touchdown pass to Emamanuel Sanders.

Roethlisberger jumped into the arms of tackle Flozell Adams after the throw. Roethlisberger may have said/ appeared to say something to Seymour, who turned and struck the quarterback in the jaw with his open right hand.

As Roethlisberger fell down, lineman Chris Kemoeatu grabbed Seymour. Both Seymour and Kemoeatu drew penalties, but only Seymour was ejected.

Here's the play...
Decide for yourself if the shot was karmic in nature...
