Jacksonville linebacker Myles Jack was ejected during the second quarter of the Jaguars-Chiefs game on Sunday after throwing a punch at Kansas City wide receiver Demarcus Robinson.
The punch came after the two competed for position in the end zone as the Chiefs were driving downfield.
After finding out he had been ejected for his actions, Jack did not respond well, getting in officials’ faces as his teammates held him back.

Eventually, Jack was escorted off the field by Jaguars coaches, still visibly upset by the situation.
The ejection left the Jaguars shorthanded as they attempted to keep pace with a Chiefs offence that got off to an extremely hot start, with quarterback Patrick Mahomes connecting with Sammy Watkins for a score just 96 seconds into the game.
The ejection was especially painful for the Jaguars, who were already down a key player when Jack threw his punch, as new quarterback Nick Foles went down with a shoulder injury earlier in the game.
Rookie Gardner Minshew took over in relief of Foles.
