Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. stuck up for his teammate during Sunday’s Week 6 game against Tennessee after Titans defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons appeared to intentionally dive at Ravens WR Zay Flowers’ legs for a tackle.
Beckham and Simmons had a brief dust-up on the field with Simmons picking up a 15-yard penalty, but it appears the bad blood boiled over after the game as well.

Beckham’s teammate, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey, said that after the game he saw Simmons waiting on the field with his helmet on. At first, Humphrey thought Simmons was waiting for a family member.
But then, he heard someone from security yell and saw the 30-year-old Beckham and 26-year-old Simmons brawling on the field.

“I turn around, [Beckham Jr. and Simmons] are genuinely like fighting. I am pretty sure Odell is grabbing his facemask,” the three-time Pro Bowler said on his show, the Punch Line Podcast with Marlon Humphrey.“They had to be separated and everything. I don’t know how this has not [been reported]. I mean, [Simmons] is crazy. He wanted that fade from Odell.”Ultimately, order was restored.The Ravens also got the last laugh, earning a 24-16 win over the Titans at Tottenham Stadium. Baltimore now returns stateside for Week 7 to host the Detroit Lions at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
