Things got a little chippy during the Ravens' 30-7 rout of the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday's AFC Wildcard playoff game.

Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali was flagged for unnecessary roughness after he dove at the knees of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco in the third quarter. Left tackle Michael Oher tangled with Kansas City linebacker Jevon Belcher on at least two occasions, and offensive tackle Oniel Cousins appeared to wrestle with a Chiefs player (or two) during an extra-point attempt.

Oher said the extracurricular activity is to be expected.

"That's just playoff atmosphere," Oher said. "Guys want to win. Everybody's got a goal to get to Dallas [the site of Super Bowl XLV]. That's the way it is."

Oher appeared to take a shot to the chin from a Kansas City player, and he had a cut on his bottom lip. But he shrugged off the physical contact.

"That type of stuff happens," Oher said. "It's football. It's a very physical game. That's the way it is. You get your lip busted and then you move on."
