Stewart, who ended up bloody from the incident, made a beeline for James and both players were ejected for their actions.

In an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that James tried to obtain Stewart’s phone number after the game. James reportedly wanted to apologize for his role in the melee and make it clear that he didn’t intend to hit Stewart.
“I’m told LeBron James did try to track down Isaiah Stewart’s number postgame to apologize to Stewart again and let him know that it was an inadvertent hit to his face, and so the league is going to have to review it,” Charania said. “This is not something that’s common with him. This would be a first-time offense for him, so I think you would have to factor that in for any type of league discipline.”
This marks the first suspension of James’ NBA career.
It’s worth noting that the Lakers and Pistons will face off on Nov. 21. Obviously, both players will have served their suspensions by then, so it’ll be interesting to see if there are any more fireworks stemming from Sunday’s situation.
While the Seahawks were posting records, the Lions defense was a wreck.
Rookie defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson, who some see as the savior of the Lions defense, has been a disappointment.
Outside his one good game against the Washington Commanders, he has 6 tackles and zero sacks in his three other games, with four of the tackles being assisted.
While injuries are plaguing the team, they have no answers to improve their 2022 season.
1. Houston Texans
The Houston Texans are the only NFL team remaining that’s yet to win a game.
However, with them trading Deshaun Watson, and not getting a QB to replace him, it’s not odd to see them as a winless team.
While the team has some good things going for them, they won’t have a winning season.
They are too far gone, despite their solid pass defense that held Russell Wilson to only 14 completions.
Last week the Texans defense looked solid. They held Russell Wilson to 14-31 passing for 219 yards and a 66 rating. On the flip side the Broncos rushed for 148 yds and 4.8 ypc. Expect a hefty dose of David Montgomery. #DaBears#Bears#BearDownpic.twitter.com/tOYm7RzPFS
