Along with Garrett, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi were given their marching orders for their part in the melee.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield explained that Garrett's actions at the FirstEnergy Stadium were completely out of order.

"I made a mistake, I lost my cool and I regret it," Garrett told reporters per Sky Sports. "It's gonna come back to hurt our team.

"The guys who jumped in to the scrum... I appreciate my team having my back but it should never get to that, it's on me."

Garrett said that he didn't think his actions would overshadow the Browns' 21-7 victory and that 'a win is a win'.

Rudolph was in a far less diplomatic mood about the situation however.

The 24-year-old said:

"Not in my years. I thought it was cowardly and pretty bush league,"

"I'm fine and good to go."

He was also pressed on if he feels the 23-year-old deserves a lengthy ban for his actions.

"I don't know what the rules are, I know it's bush league and he is a total coward.

"t's OK, I'll take it, I'm not going to back down from no bully.

"We will see what happens."

They were bizarre scenes in an otherwise routine win for the Browns.

They stay third in the standings while the Steelers remain in second behind the Baltimore Ravens.
