Chris Pratt SNL Cold Open - H 2014

Lewis and Sharpe, both of whom previously faced accusations of domestic violence, avoided answering questions from CNN's Candy Crowley (Aidy Bryant) on violence in the NFL.

Goodell added that the NFL's new slogan is "We Fight Women," before adding, "Excuse me — 'We Fight for Women.' "
