Panthers’ Foreman, Saints’ Davenport trade punches, ejected

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Carolina running back D’Onta Foreman was having a strong season finale until he and Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport exchanged punches and got ejected. Foreman says he lost his cool but was proud of his teammates for finishing out their 10-7 comeback victory on Sunday. The scuffle took place moments after Davenport chased Foreman down and tackled him from behind on a 1-yard run on the sixth play of the third quarter. The duo had words after rising from the Superdome turf. They exchanged blows and both were assessed unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and thrown out of the game. Foreman rushed for a career-high 914 yards this season.
