Brady missed an open man on third-and-11 when McDaniels appears to have said something in passing that Brady clearly didn’t like. Brady and McDaniels then went back and forth with Brady then going at McDaniels and taking his helmet off:
Of course, things get heated during games, and they set aside their differences:
