Browns defensive end Myles Garrett's attack on Mason Rudolph in the waning seconds of the Browns’ 21-7 win over the Steelers Thursday night overshadowed everything else that happened in the game. Garrett planted Rudolph into the FirstEnergy Stadium Turf, then ripped Rudolph’s helmet off and swung it at him, striking him in the head.

The incident sparked a wave of reactions from current and former players around the NFL. 

Multiple players threw punches in retaliation and three, including Garrett, were ejected from the game.

All players involved in the incident are going to be under review by the NFL for possible suspensions, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The longest suspension for a singular on-field incident in NFL history is the five games that Albert Haynesworth got in 2006 for stomping on an opposing player's head.
