Thursday, the Chicago Bears square off with the Green Bay Packers. The two storied NFL franchises have hated each other for a long time.
One of the reasons for the vitriol happened 30 years ago, when Packers defensive lineman Charles Martin delivered one of the dirtiest plays seen in NFL history when he slammed Bears quarterback Jim McMahon to the ground well after he attempted a pass. The play resulted in a torn rotator cuff for McMahon and a two-game suspension for Martin.
Here is a list of the top 10 dirtiest players in NFL history:
10. Cortland Finnegan
Finnegan was drafted in the seventh round out of a small school, Samford University, so he likely used being overlooked as his motivation to be violent. Voted the third dirtiest player by his peers in 2012, the cornerback tried picking a fight with a much bigger Houston Texans wideout Andre Johnson. It did not go well.
