UPDATE: The game had a fight later in the third quarter following a cheap shot by the Bengals that resulted in three more players getting ejected.

Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd and Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard have been ejected after a scuffle following a play late in the second quarter of Week 13. The “fight” didn’t look too egregious, but with officials in the middle, they could be reacting to contact with an official.

Boyd has just one reception, but it was a 72-yard touchdown pass while Howard has an interception and has been playing lights out. This is a big blow to both teams with another half of football to play. The Bengals lead 7-6 at halftime with the Dolphins needing a win to stick around a tough AFC playoff race.
