The Los Angeles Rams are thumping the Atlanta Falcons, and tempers are starting to flare. Officials ejected running back Devonta Freeman after he threw a punch at defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Freeman is not a small guy, but it’s a bold move to take a swing at Donald. He’s a huge guy and I certainly would want nothing to do with him. You can watch the play below and see Donald appear to pick up Freeman and let his displeasure be known.

It was an abysmal game for Freeman, so I don’t blame him for wanting to call it a day early. He had seven rushes for 19 yards and added two receptions for six yards. LA is now up 27-3, and if I was playing for Atlanta right now, I’d probably want to go home early as well.
