Crocodylian palpebrals (a bit late I know, but...)

I'm wondering if anyone has done a study to test which of the crocodylians fought the most visciously - palpebrated or unpalpebrated (are these words?).  After all crocs bring down food and perform intraspecific combat with their mouths first and foremost.  Also a connection between blunter snouts and bone adorned eyes sounds like all the soft areas of the face are being shielded.  Chris, I know you said they don't feed as roughly, does the same apply for fighting and/or initial hunting?
