There was bad blood entering Thursday Night Football between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, and it all just boiled over in the closing seconds. Following a third-down play on Pittsburgh's drive with just eight second remaining in the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett brought down Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on what appeared to be a bit of a late hit. Rudolph took exception and the two went at it. During the altercation, Rudolph appeared to be clawing at Garrett's helmet. Garrett would retaliate by ripping off Rudolph's helmet, swinging it, and connecting with the signal caller's head in an awful display.

Things only escalated further. As Garrett was tackled to the turf, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey repeatedly kicked the former 2017 first overall pick in the head in retaliation.

Both Garrett and Pouncey were ejected from the game. Nobody will remember any of the actual football that took place at FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday night. Instead, everyone will remember this vicious brawl.

Expect both Myles Garrett and Maurkice Pouncey to miss significant time, as lengthy suspensions will no doubt be heading their way.
