Just before halftime in St. Louis, a fight broke out on the Giants sideline between a host of Giants and Rams players. The game had already had its moments of players facing off in the first quarter, it was bound to happen.
Previously reported by the Inquisitr, tensions were already running high in the first quarter when a Rams’ player was kicked in the face by Giants’ John Brown.
The play that started the Giants Rams fight occurred just moments after Odell Beckham Jr. made a catch and was violently forced out of bounds by Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree. Ogletree and Beckham seemed to exchange words, and Ogletree shoved Beckham’s helmet, leading the rookie to react. But punter Steve Weatherford tried to hold Beckham back.
Still, a massive brawl broke out on the sidelines involving many of the Giants and Rams players. In the process, an official was hit.
Preston Parker and Damontre Moore were ejected as was Rams’ William Hayes.
The play resulted in a 15-yard penalty against the Giants, who had committed the foul against the official. All other penalties offset, but the foul against the official was enforced.
