Maybe it was built-up frustration from playing for the Cincinnati Bengals, or maybe Jacksonville Jaguars defender Jalen Ramsey said something inappropriate, but something got into A.J. Green on Sunday. After being pushed down by Ramsey, Green got up and snapped, taking Ramsey down by the neck and throwing punches.
Twitter reacted as usual, with some funny jokes thrown in.

Next paper view fight is going to be Jalen Ramsey vs A. J. Green. Don't miss!

A.J. Green punches Jalen Ramsey's helmet. I'm guessing Green's Wonderlic score was single digits.

I think A.J. Green just tried to hit Jalen Ramsey with a rear naked choke?

That is the most fight I have seen in a Bengals player since … well, when was Pacman Jones arrested last?

If you honestly lined up all 53 Bengals players and asked me to pick who would fight like that, A.J. Green would be my 53rd pick.

A.J Green was so angry he thought punching a helmet was a good idea
