With Big Games Approaching, NFL Still Reckoning With Domestic ViolencePlay
On Sunday, the New England Patriots will visit the Kansas City Cheifs for the AFC championship — and a trip to Super Bowl 53 on the line.
The Chiefs made national headlines this season because they had the NFL’s top-ranked offense ... and because they cut star running-back Kareem Hunt after a video surfaced of him physically assaulting a woman.
The incident was another example of how the NFL struggles to deal with players who commit violence against women.
As football fans gear up for this weekend’s big games, WBUR’s Shira Springer takes another look at the issue.
