    Spikes was ejected on Sunday after locking up with Raiders running back Mike Goodson, who also was ejected on the second-quarter play. Spikes and Oakland’s Mike Goodson were ejected early in the second quarter Sunday after an extended tussle in which they pulled on each other and wouldn’t let go at the end of a play.
