Here’s a football play fans of all sports can appreciate: fighting!
A brawl between the Tennessee Titans and the Denver Broncos broke out on the field Sunday after Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas rammed his helmet and shoulder into the knees of Broncos defensive back Chris Harris Jr., who momentarily left the field afterward.
The incident that a CBS announcer described as “an all-out scrum” happened on the next play when Harris’ teammate, Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, struck back against Douglas on the sidelines after the whistle was blown.
Members of both teams joined in the altercation as referees struggled to break it up.
“It was a dirty play by a sorry player,” Talib told reporters in the locker room after the game. “He’s got the same agent as me, so when I see his a– in Atlanta, I’m gonna beat his a–.”
Douglas, meanwhile, doesn’t think he did anything wrong.
“I cut blocked him,” Douglas said. “It’s not like he didn’t see me, he was looking right at me. It is what it is, I mean they got upset with it, but if they watch film and they watch me play, they know that’s what I do.”
Harris, however, thinks Douglas was trying to end his career.
“I was just standing there. I was nowhere near the play,” Harris said, per ESPN. “I mean, somebody tries to end your career, I can’t believe he did it.”
