Well, things are getting a little chippy in the final game of Week 1. Tennessee Titans linebacker Rashaan Evans was ejected late in the first quarter after throwing a punch at the head of Denver Broncos tight end Jake Butt.

The video below shows the two scuffling at the end of a player. They shoved each other and then Evans swung an open hand that hit Butt across the facemask. The ejection was quick after that.
