When delivering a helmet-to-helmet hit on defenseless tight end Jack Doyle of the Colts, Burfict was yet again flawless in his disregard for any level of safety.
Raiders middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season for his repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules.
Sports wagering is topping expectations since the Indiana General Assembly voted to legalize it in June in return for 15 percent of the profit.
Raiders middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected from the team’s 31-24 victory in the second quarter after play was stopped for review on a helmet-to-helmet hit.
The fourth-round pick forced a fumble and knocked down two passes at the line of scrimmage, though the defensive end is still searching for his first sack.
How the team performed in a 31-24 win.
The Raiders put together a complete performance on offense and defense to defeat the Indianapolis Colts before heading across the pond to spend a week in London.
The Raiders need to improve their run defense, they need better field position, and they need another receiver to emerge to complement Darren Waller and Tyrell Williams.
The Raiders (1-2) visit Lucas Oil Stadium to play the Indianapolis Colts (2-1) at 10 a.m. Sunday.
Win and the Raiders are off to London to play Khalil Mack and the Bears with a 2-2 record. But lose and they are 1-3 and looking at a 1-6 start to the season.
