There are occasionally some brawls in football, with this weekend alone seeing fights in the Florida-Missouri college game Saturday and in the Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers NFL game Sunday. But it’s more unusual to see a very one-sided fight where one player just throws two punches at an unexpecting player (who was still wearing a helmet). That happened Sunday afternoon, though, with Chicago Bears’ receiver Javon Wims punching New Orleans Saints’ DB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson twice. That led to a brawl (seen above), but here’s the initial punches:

And here’s a replay:

This came after Gardner-Johnson poked Bears’ receiver Anthony Miller through his face mask:

But that’s still quite the reaction by Wims. And it saw him ejected. The Saints would go on to win 26-23 in overtime.
