It was a violent day in the NFL on Sunday – and not just because of injuries. More on that in Monday’s news.

NFL news: Andre Johnson, Courtland Finnegan have fistfight; Steve Johnson blames God for his drop

Andre Johnson is separated from Courtland Finnegan by umpire Garth DeFerlice

The Tennessee Titans were the ones getting humiliated by the Houston Texans – but it was Houston wideout Andre Johnson who lost it yesterday. Titans corner Cortland Finnegan was getting under his skin all game, enough that Johnson told him to stop, but Finnegan kept going. After he swiped at Johnson’s neck and facemask at the line of scrimmage, Johnson finally snapped.

He knocked Finnegan’s helmet off and unloaded on him with a barrage of punches to the head and neck. Finnegan managed to get Johnson’s helmet off, too, but the referees intervened before anything else could happen.

“I wish I could take back what happened, but I can’t,” Johnson said after the game. “I’m pretty sure I’ll be disciplined for it.”

There are drops, there are Pierre Garcon drops, and then there’s the drop Steve Johnson made in overtime for the Buffalo Bills yesterday. It was epically bad. He essentially caught the ball and just let go. But guess what? It’s not his fault. According to Johnson, it’s God’s fault. He tweeted:


Wow. Pretty angry guy. Also angry: the San Diego Chargers. Even though they won last night, freshly returning Vincent Jackson left after three offensive plays with a strained hamstring. Antonio Gates also removed himself from the game when his foot injury acted up.

NCAA football news: TCU leaving Mountain West, joining Big East after 2011-12; BCS puts Oklahoma in Big 12 title game

Probably tired of being labelled a second-tier school, the Texas Christian Horned Frogs are on the move. It was just announced that they’ll move to the Big East after the 2011-12 season according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. TCU has a news conference scheduled for today.

The Oklahoma Sooners sweated out their Big 12 fate, tied with Oklahoma and Texas A&M and waiting to see which team would earn the right to face Nebraska in the conference title game. In the end, the BCS saved the Sooners, breaking the tie by ranking them ninth in the standings. Oklahoma State finished 14th; Texas A&M finished 18th.

NBA news: Heat hold players-only meeting; Nets banish Terrence Williams to D-League as punishment

Did you ever imagine the Heat would have a players-only meeting a month into the season? Maybe some of us thought they’d disappoint slightly. But did anyone expect them to be “players-only-meeting-bad”? They’re 1-7 against teams with winning records this year. After losing to Dallas on Saturday, the coaches filed out of the locker room and the Heat players talked it out. We’ll see if anything changes.

New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson is a pioneer. He’s the first coach ever to send a player to the NBA Developmental League for reasons other than development. Fed up with his repeated team violations, especially tardiness, Johnson sent Terrence Williams to the D-League. No idea yet how long he’ll be down there.

NHL news: Chris Stewart breaks hand in fight

If you hadn’t heard of Chris Stewart – chances are, you would’ve soon. The young Colorado Avalanche’s game is rapidly improving – to the point that he currently ranks 15th in the NHL with 25 points in 23 games. Unfortunately, his momentum came to a screeching halt on Saturday night. He’s out indefinitely after breaking his left hand in a fight with Minnesota’s Kyle Brodziak.
