The Browns will have to play without safety Ronnie Harrison the rest of the way. He was ejected with 4:43 remaining in the first quarter as things are getting chippy between the Chiefs and Browns.

After an 11-yard gain by Clyde Edwards-Helaire that ended with Mack Wilson and Harrison tackling the running back along the sideline, Chiefs assistant Greg Lewis pushed Harrison in an attempt to get Harrison off Edwards-Helaire. Officials flagged Lewis and announced a 15-yard penalty on the Chiefs.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid reacted angrily on the sideline.

It appears the officiating office in New York buzzed down, and officials changed their initial ruling by giving offsetting penalties and ejecting Harrison.

Hill, then the receivers coach, was shoved by Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill in a playoff game against the Browns last season. Hill later said it was a playful shove in good fun.

  1. NFL needs to help their cash cow win. Pathetic!

  2. Just wondering why the Chief’s asst. Coach wasn’t ejected as well since he had the first shove…

  3. I’m not a Browns fan and I like Andy Reid so this isn’t bias.

    But it was clear that Harrison stepping on CED was incidental. He was trying to step over, his leg went pretty high up to move his foot over him but a Chief’s lineman obstructed his path which in turn caused his foot to bumped into CED’s thigh at the apex of Harrison’s step over…which in turn caused him to step on him. In fact once he gets tangled up with the lineman and steps on CED, he even reactionary looks down to get himself off.

    That clearly wasn’t on purpose. Accidental stepping on happens a lot in football. Anybody that has played knows this for sure. So the whole point of this is that if you’re going to eject him for pushing a coach ( although you do have to be smart on retaliating), you have to also eject the coach for blind side shoving him. Stop just going for the guy that retaliates.

  4. Coach should have been thrown out of the game. Coach shoved Harrison first. Coaches should be held to higher standard.

    It’s the Chiefs. Goodell’s other favorite team, 2nd to Tampa.

    All about the money.

  6. he obviously stepped on the chiefs player on purpose. it’s why he looked the other way while doing it to feign ignorance. oldest trick in the book and that’s what the chiefs coach reacted to. glad they overruled the refs on the field who missed it and made the right call.

    So what you’re saying is Brady and Mahomes bring in the money, and get all the class. Hmmmm interesting huh. Lmaooo

  8. The player punched the coach in the mouth, the coach pushed him off a player. Rules dont allow for punching
