NFL players come to Marshawn Lynch’s defense after ejection

Marshawn Lynch referee

Marshawn Lynch had no shortage of supporters after being ejected for making contact with an official during Thursday’s game between the Raiders and Chiefs.

During the second quarter, Lynch entered the field of play from the sideline after Derek Carr was hit late by Marcus Peters. The two teams gathered with a few players from each side exchanging words. Lynch got into the middle of things and grabbed an official. He was subsequently ejected.

Afterward, Bengals running back Joe Mixon and a couple of retired NFL players defended Lynch’s actions on social media.

The sentiment was also shared by a few members of the media.

While Lynch’s intentions are not known at this time, one thing we do know is he can expect to be punished by the NFL.
