Rams’ Jalen Ramsey and Marcus Peters had to be separated after Ravens game
The Baltimore Ravens established themselves as favorites to reach the Super Bowl after taking down the Los Angeles Rams in front of their home crowd. However, things became heated as Marcus Peters and Jalen Ramsey got into it after the game.
Jeff Zrebiec was one of the first reporters who noted the verbal exchange of the two corners after the game.

You cannot blame Ramsey for trying to get at Peters after the game. The Rams were lackluster for much of the game as they failed to keep up with the Ravens. Lamar Jackson managed to have a field day as he finished with five touchdowns on only 169 passing yards.
Moreover, Peters was very motivated to take down his former team who allowed him to go to the Ravens in the middle of the season.
He had this to say about his former team prior to the game, per Forbes’ Jeff Seidel:
“No, I don’t have a chip on my shoulder,” Peters said. “How did it end? I got traded, and I’m liking the situation I’m in right now. And I just keep moving forward. I understand the business of football.
Peters said he’s trying to look at this as just another game.
“We just have to be prepared to match it up,” Peters said. “It’s going to be a fun game, though. It’s going to be good to see the guys out there and good to compete against them, and it’ll be a fun day.”
However, the way he celebrated after getting that interception off Jared Goff tells a different story. His interaction with Ramsey — who the Rams specifically traded for — says something about his personal views, too.
