Cleveland Browns star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was involved in a scuffle with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey during their Sunday afternoon game, which saw OBJ on the receiving end of a choke.
The two players go physical during the game and cameras appear to show Beckham Jr. throwing a punch prior to the choking. Jeff Zrebiec of The Atletic details Humphrey complaining to officials about being grabbed by the neck by Beckham Jr. Humphrey would then take it into his own hands, literally.

Head Coach of the Browns, Freddie Kitchens, states he will contact the league office regarding the incident.
“I saw what you saw. He was getting choked on the ground,” he said to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. “They get away with that because it’s Odell. I’m going to be one the phone with Al (Riveron) when I get on the bus.”
