    Default Brawl Ends Browns Steelers Game

    The Pittsburgh Steelers-Cleveland Browns game was ugly, in a football sense. Then it got truly ugly.

    With eight seconds left in the Browns’ 21-7 win, a brawl broke out. There will likely be suspensions, and especially for Browns defensive end Myles Garrett.

    Garrett, a former No. 1 overall pick and one of the NFL’s best defensive players, will have a tough time living down his actions. At the end of a play he tackled Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, perhaps not knowing that Rudolph had already delivered the ball. Rudolph took exception to that. Garrett then ripped Rudolph’s helmet off his head, and when Rudolph came at Garrett, Garrett swung the helmet and hit Rudolph in the head with it.

    “That’s one of the worst things I’ve seen on a professional sports field,” Fox announcer Joe Buck said.

    Earlier this season Rudolph suffered a scary concussion. Thankfully he didn’t appear injured from the direct hit to the head with the helmet swung by the 272-pound Garrett.

    “This is a multiple-game suspension right here,” Fox color analyst Troy Aikman said. “I hate that anyone even has to watch this. This is barbaric is what this is.”

    Garrett was ejected, as was Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who was kicking Garrett as he was down, got a personal foul.

    Garrett will hear from the league office about his actions. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield sounded off on his teammate at the end of Fox’s broadcast.

    “It’s inexcusable,” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield told Fox’s Erin Andrews after the game. “I don’t care, rivalry or not. We can’t do that. ... It’s endangering the other team. It’s inexcusable. He knows that. I hope he does now. That’s tough. We’ll see.

    “The reality is, he’s going to get suspended and we don’t know how long and that hurts our team. We can’t do that. We can’t continue to hurt this team. It’s inexcusable.”

    Oh man, I saw that! Unbelievable! It looked like he wouldn't let go of Rudolph, and Rudolph was trying to get loose, and that set Garrett off. My wife and I were just sitting there in disbelief at what happened. Never seen that level of a brawl before.

    I didn't take this as serious as some. I think there are a lot of people who view things certain ways to be politically correct. This is football, a contact sport where tempers are flairing for 4 quarters. I think is was a violent penalty but ending a mans season or as some are saying, his career, is just crazy to me. Suspension for a few games would be plenty.
