Video: Rayshawn Jenkins ejected for throwing punch at 49ers player

Rayshawn Jenkins throws a punch

Tempers flared during the first half of the San Francisco 49ers-Jacksonville Jaguars game on Sunday, and one player was ejected as a result.

Jaguars defensive back Rayshawn Jenkins got into it with San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings after a play in the second quarter. Jennings’ helmet came off during the skirmish, but he kept his cool. Jenkins did not, instead delivering an open-handed slap to Jennings’ face as players and officials came over to break up the fight.

Jenkins was ejected for throwing a swing. Here’s the video:

The act also led to a 15-yard penalty, which gave the Niners a first down after the Jaguars had come up with a big stop on third down.

Throwing a punch almost always leads to an ejection. This is not the first time we have seen it happen this season.

Mike Evans, Rayshawn Jenkins get into it with shoving match

Mike Evans

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a frustrating first half in their game against the Las Angeles Chargers on Sunday, and Mike Evans lost his cool at one point in the middle of it.

Evans failed to catch a pass on 4th-and-10 late in the second quarter. He felt he was interfered with on the play and got up calling for a flag, which drew a reaction from Chargers defensive back Rayshawn Jenkins. Evans and Jenkins then got into a shoving match and Evans was flagged for unnecessary roughness.

You could make the argument that both players should have been flagged, but the officials obviously felt Evans was the aggressor.

Evans ended up getting the last laugh. After the Buccaneers punted the ball away, the Chargers fumbled and gave it to Tampa Bay deep in L.A. territory. Brady made the Chargers pay with a touchdown pass to Evans in the back of the end zone.
