On Thursday night, AFC North rivals Cleveland and Pittsburgh battled it out on Thursday night in a pivotal game for both teams.
The Browns embarrassed the Steelers for most of the game, forcing four interceptions from quarterback Mason Rudolph en route to a 21-7 win.
It was a tough night for Rudolph all around, who seemingly faced pressure every time he stepped back to pass.
However, the worst moment came with just eight seconds left on the clock. As Rudolph stepped back to pass, he got the ball away just as Myles Garrett came in for a sack.
He and Garrett got tangled up and started shoving each other. Garrett then ripped the helmet off of Rudolph’s head – but he didn’t stop there.
Garrett swung the helmet at Rudolph’s uncovered head.
Here’s the wild play.

Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey didn’t stand for it and immediately jumped in, punching and kicking Garrett.
Both players were ejected from the game and will likely receive lengthy suspensions as a result of their actions on the field.
Rivalry games usually bring out the bad sides in teams, but no one expected something like this.
The Browns can’t be happy with what they saw from their star defensive end. Neither can the Steelers from the All-Pro center.
