CLEVELAND, Ohio (WTVN)--It was a big win Thursday night for the Cleveland Browns over their arch rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it was a fight with only eight seconds left in the game that tarnished the win.
It initially involved Browns Defensive Lineman Myles Garrett and Steelers Quarterback Mason Rudolph. On a play where Rudolph threw and pass and was hit by Garrett, the two continued to tussle, to a point where Garrett ripped Rudolph's head off, and hit Rudolph in the head with it.
That led to a benches-clearing brawl.
Garrett acknowledged his actions were out of line. ''What I did was foolish, and I shouldn't have allowed myself to slip like that,'' Garrett said softly. ''It's out of character.''
Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield did not try to defend Garrett's actions when talking about the incident after the game.
Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Garrett apologized to him and the defensive end said he intends to talk to his teammates.
Multiple suspensions are expected from the incident. The Browns won the game 21-7, to move to 4-6 on the season.
