For anyone who has ever been in a scuffle, the question you usually get is, "well who got the last word?" Or basically, who came out on top? No one ever asked that question after this brawl between Donald Penn and Jared Allen from 2012, it was obvious.

Sure, Penn gets a few shots in, he even rips Allen's helmet off causing some damage. In the end though, Allen bull-rushes Penn for a key third-down sack on the next play. Actions speak louder than words, and a sack was the mic drop Allen needed to silence the left tackle.

The Minnesota Vikings fans loved every second of it. Even the broadcast team chuckles as Allen brings down Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman while saying, "who didn't know that was going to happen?"

Donald Penn for one, his lack of focus signals that he was still caught up in the moment. Unless an enraged Allen just overpowered him outright. Whatever the reasoning, the edge rusher got the last word, and Penn walked back to the sideline shaking his head.
