Marcus Peters wants to speak on Marshawn Lynch's behalf to NFL

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch lost the appeal of his one-game suspension for making physical contact with an official, the National Football League announced Tuesday. Peters' hit was later penalized (albeit unfairly given that the ref hadn't blown his whistle and Carr was definitely not supposed to be protected like he was still in the pocket), but it also resulted in several Raiders players taking exception to the hit on their quarterback.

Fortunately for the Raiders, the team has two formidable backups in Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington that can help fill the void left by Lynch's absence in Week 8.

"Marshawn saw three big O-lineman going after his cousin and he know how we get down so I think he was just trying to stop something from getting bigger than it was", Penn said. Lynch bumped line judge Julian Mapp in the chest and then grabbed the official by the jersey before letting go and tending to Peters. He took part in a conference call on Monday as his good friend appealed a one-game penalty for running onto the field and making contact with an official last Thursday.

An official pulled at Lynch as he attempted to break up the fight.

Burn-in, which usually becomes a problem only after several years of activity, can make it hard to see information on the display. In the past, we've seen delays on the Nexus 6P and the original Pixel , and now the brand new Pixel 2 is joining the club.

Immediately after, Lynch was flagged and ejected from the game.

Peters spoke on Lynch's behalf at his appeal hearing.
