Browns’ Myles Garrett swings helmet, hits Steelers’ Mason Rudolph
The Cleveland Browns won successive games for the first time this season by taking down their AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. It should have been a delightful Thursday night for a lot of Browns fans. However, the night was marred by an ugly incident: Myles Garrett got into a fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.
There was no reason for a fight to happen in the first place. The score was 21-7 with only eight seconds left on the clock. Rudolph wanted to take his helmet off, since the game was almost over. For some reason, Garrett wrested it off and created considerable friction in the process.
The two got into a heated argument which led to the 23-year-old defensive end swinging the helmet he took off and forcefully guiding it right to Rudolph’s head. The rest of the players ran in to stop the fight, but Maurkice Pouncey, trying to protect Rudolph, landed a few shots.

It’s an embarrassing show of sportsmanship for all of the players involved. No one will be surprised if the NFL decides to punish the players who fought with significant suspensions.
