UPDATE: After DeVante Parker and Mack Hollins were ejected, Jakeem Grant ran them down to thank them for having his back after the illegal hit. Here’s some new video of that as Parker and Hollins were heading to the locker room after their ejections.

The Miami Dolphins 19-7 win over Cincinnati Bengals came with some notable fireworks. Late in the second quarter, Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd and Dolphins cornerback Xavier Howard were ejected after throwing punches at the end of a play. Then, in the third quarter we saw a late Bengals hit on Dolphins punt returner Jakeem Grant result in both teams scuffling and three more players getting ejected.

Here’s a look at the play that resulted in Grant suffering an injury. Bengals special teams player Mike Thomas hit Grant early and that set off a whole lot of folks.

Both sides grew heated, and at one point Dolphins head coach Brian Flores had to be held back because of how he heated he was getting.

Here’s one more view of the scuffle from overhead. Bengals safety Shawn Williams shoved Dolphins receiver DeVante Parker, which led to Parker throwing punches. Dolphins receiver Mack Hollins came to the defense of Parker and all three players were ejected. It’s safe to say league discipline will be forthcoming.
