Taylor Lewan and Josh Norman got into a heated post-game argument in which Norman threw his helmet at his opponent and the two of them had to be separated before things really got out of hand.

After Lewan came off the field he was approached by reporters about the incident. He explained why he went after Norman, noting he thought the cornerback was intentionally trying to hurt Derrick Henry, while ripping him in a big way.
More Lewan on Norman: “I’m not worried about Josh Norman. … I mean, I don’t know who that is. I was pissed. He was trying to hurt Derrick. That’s BS. That’s not the way football’s supposed to be played, man. It’s not our fault you’re not relevant anymore.”

“It’s not our fault you’re not relevant anymore.”
My goodness, Lewan. The man has a family, for crying out loud.
For what it’s worth, Henry told reporters after the game he didn’t think Norman was trying to hurt him. But anyone who’s followed Lewan dating back to his college days at Michigan knows he’s ultra protective of his guys.
