It can take a lot to break through the media bubble, but some of the most shocking NFL scandals are also some of the most bizarre. These are professional football players or football teams that go out of their way to break the rules both on and off the field.

From dogfighting rings to weird confessions of love during sideline interviews to murders, the NFL has had to deal with it all. In some cases, the matter could be dealt with internally, while others had to involve law enforcement. Nonetheless, these stories are confusing, intriguing, and just down right brutal in some cases.
