Three players were ejected after a nasty brawl between the Steelers and Browns in the closing seconds of Thursday night’s game in Cleveland.

Browns defensive lineman Myles Garrett tore off Mason Rudolph‘s helmet and struck the Steelers quarterback in the head with it after the two tangled on the ground.

Several skirmishes ensued. Garrett, Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were ejected. Pouncey got tossed after kicking Garrett in the helmet while he was on the ground.

Rudolph appeared OK, and was in for his team’s final offensive play.

“It’s inexcusable,” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield told Fox after the game. “I don’t care if it’s a rivalry or not.”

Cleveland won the often-chippy game, 21-7. The teams meet again Dec. 1, in Pittsburgh.
