The Cleveland Browns got their second win of the season today against the Baltimore Ravens, but not before a little bit of drama involving star wideout Odell Beckham Jr.

After one particular play, Beckham got into a tussle with Ravens defender Marlon Humphrey. He reportedly threw a punch at Humphrey before being pulled down.

The two then wrestled on the ground, drawing several flags in the process. It even appeared that Humphrey put his hands around Beckham's neck during the tussle.

Neither was ejected, though.

After the game, Beckham attempted to downplay what happened between him and Humphrey. He claimed that he was upset because he just lost some jewelry.

"I'm just upset I lost my earring."

Beckham finished the game with two receptions for 20 yards in the 40-25 win.

Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was furious that Humphrey got away with the apparent choke though. He pledged to complain to the league office very soon.

As for Humphrey, he told the media that he apologized to Beckham for choking him. Whether or not the league believes him or imposes a stiffer punishment on him later remains to be seen.

Will Marlon Humphrey be suspended or otherwise punished for his tussle with Odell Beckham Jr? Or will Beckham perhaps be punished for throwing a punch?
