After a few plays, a number of players, on both sides of the ball, were seen getting in one another’s face. One of the more interesting confrontations between the two teams came towards the end of the first half when both teams got into a pushing and shoving match near the sidelines. The moment was barely shown on live television and the CBS crew chose to pan the camera away from the incident. During the altercation, Baltimore Ravens corner Cary Williams shoved a nearby official. Williams did not receive a flag, or was ejected from the game. While talking to The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., Williams spoke about the incident and said he did not even realize he was pushing an official. “It was in the moment, man,” Williams said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com.  “It was one of those situations where you let your emotions get the best of you.  As far as I’m concerned, I remember my helmet getting ripped off by No. 49 or whatever, and I just reacted.  I didn’t see the ref; I didn’t realize he was there.  I just pushed whoever to try to get to him. “I just think that with the Baltimore Ravens, I feel like we play aggressively but we play between the whistles.  There was a lot of things that was going on outside of the whistles or whatever, and it was frustrating.  But at the end of the day, it happened.  The ref saw that I wasn’t trying to intentionally get him or hurt him or harm him in any way, and I think he played it the right way.  He made the right call, he made the right decision.” “The league hasn’t contacted me,” Williams said. “I don’t know if I need to contact them or whatever, but it’s a situation . . . and I just gotta deal with that.  So whenever it comes, I gotta cross that bridge when we get there.” The post Cary Williams didn’t realize he was pushing an official appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
