Things got testy in the rain at the end of the New England Patriots' 13-10 victory over the New York Jets on Thursday night. Following Aqib Talib's interception of Geno Smith in the final minute that sealed New England's 13-10 victory, a shoving match broke out between both sides and a punch was thrown. It was all ignited by Jets center Nick Mangold, who went after Talib's knees after he had stepped out of bounds.
Take a look:
What followed was a scrum that saw players from both teams collide in the middle of the field, sweeping up the referees in the process.
Mangold was whistled for a personal foul for the hit on Talib. Jets linemen D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Willie Colon were each tossed from the game for their involvement in the altercation and enjoyed a nice walk of shame through the New England end zone.
It was a fitting ending for an ugly game that saw the Jets commit four turnovers and both sides struggle to throw the ball effectively. The Patriots escaped with the win, but just getting out of this mess alive and moving on to next week might be what's most important to both teams.
