The matchup between Ratliff and Ta’amu is worth watching, and is starting to get ugly. On a pass play, Ratliff’s right hand connects with Ta’amu’s head in what suspiciously like a punch. It’s not called, but a couple of penalties are against the Shock. This time they can’t overcome them and have to try a 59-yard field goal.
During the possession, Beard takes an orange flag from a fan in the end zone and wipes his face. Not exactly what the fan was expecting.
