CLEVELAND (WJW) – Myles Garrett was ejected from Thursday night’s home game against the Steelers after getting in a fight with several Pittsburgh players.

With 8 seconds left to play Garrett hit Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Rudolph then tried to take Garrett’s helmet off, but was unsuccessful.  Then Garrett ripped Rudolph’s off and swung at his head, repeatedly, knocking him down.

Then Steelers’ center Maurkice Pouncey attacked Garrett.

Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi and Pouncey were ejected from the game.

In the locker room, after the game, Garrett said, “I made a mistake. I lost my cool and I regret it.”  Adding that it should’ve never gotten to the point that it did.

“I win to win,” he said. “I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happens in 8 seconds.  We played a hell of a game on defense.  Offense came out firing and we held it down from there on. What we did on the field of play for the rest of the game, for the first 59 minutes, that shouldn’t go unnoticed.”

FOX 8’s John Telich says there will certainly be suspensions after a brawl like this.

A source confirmed to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport that “all players involved in the heinous incident are going to be under review by the NFL for possible suspensions.”

After the incident, Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield reportedly said Garrett’s behavior was “inexcusable.”  He explained that Garrett was endangering the other team and will likely be suspended.

Now, football players, experts and fans alike have taken to social media to respond to the players’ actions.
