Ray Rice case highlights NFL's problem with domestic abuse

Ray Rice's wife, Janay is defending the man she says she loves. She's speaking out just a day after a video surfaced showing him punch her in the face in a casino elevator.

She's blaming the media and the NFL, not her husband. - and is calling the situation a "horrible nightmare" for her family.

Janay is one of 12 million Americans who are victims of domestic violence each year, and she's one of several women who have been abused by an NFL athlete.

CNN's Jean Casarez is OutFront.
