Steve Smith Sr. doesn’t let anyone push him around, including Oakland Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck.
The two veterans had to be separated by a Baltimore Ravens security guard after getting into a fight, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Steve Smith and Justin Tuck had to be separated going into tunnel. One of Ravens security officials was trying to push Smith away.

At that point, the game was knotted up 20-20, with both teams putting together shaky performances at various times.
Based on their histories, it’s a fair assumption to think Smith Sr. is the man responsible for initiating the minor squabble in the tunnel. Smith had already totaled 102 yards at that point in the game and is typically pretty feisty when he is on his game.
Of course, it appears Tuck may get the last laugh, though. Heading into the fourth quarter, Oakland had pulled ahead by a score of 30-20.
