Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers game on Thursday Night Football is going to have a black eye because of one play. All because of Browns defensive end Myles Garrett.
On a fourth and 18, Steelers coaching staff called for Tony Brooks-James to finish the ball with eight seconds left. Brooks-James gained four yards on the play.
But behind the play, bonehead Garrett gave the league a black eye. He was battling with an offensive lineman when he took Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet off of his head.
Then, he swing the helmet and assaulted Rudolph with it. The Steelers signal-caller was shocked no penalty was called after he was hit with the helmet.
This led to a brawl between the two teams. Several players began to punch Garrett once he was on the ground, as they were standing up for their teammate.
This could lead to suspensions for the players involved. Garrett would likely face the most time away from his teammates.
Also, it would not be surprising if the Cleveland, Ohio authorities look into this incident. It was clearly assault by Garrett when he hit Rudolph with the helmet.
It doesn’t matter if a Steelers player may have said something wrong to make Garrett mad. This was uncalled for and Garrett needs a long suspension for his actions.
