For Green, this is shocking. For Ramsey, it’s his second ejection in two years, though I imagine still surprising. Green threw multiple punches before leaving the field very heated.
Green is a veteran leader on the Bengals’ roster, a level-headed guy and someone who comes across as a great person to all who have met him.
Just ask the Cincinnati media:
If you honestly lined up all 53 Bengals players and asked me to pick who would fight like that, A.J. Green would be my 53rd pick.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) November 5, 2017
Now, it’s a Sunday afternoon in the middle of gameday, so not many NFL players are likely to know about this yet. But, many who have the day off due to a bye or play at a different time this weekend were quick to make note of the Green-Ramsey altercation.
Most interesting among them is Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown who couldn’t believe his eyes.

Former Bengals linebacker Marquis Flowers also commented.

And, another (terrible) Steelers player commented.
