You may have heard, but a little something happened at the end of Thursday night’s matchup Browns-Steelers game. After an initial skirmish on the ground between Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, things escalated to a level we have never seen in the NFL before.
Garrett ripped off Rudolph’s helmet. The rookie charged at him. Garrett smashed Rudolph over the head with the helmet. The incident will dominate talk shows for days and the highlights will live in infamy as one of the worst episodes in NFL history, if not recent sports history.
