Redskins-Ravens fight after piledrive tackle; Harbaugh yells at Gruden
Things got ugly during the first quarter of the Redskins-Ravens game on Saturday when Washington linebacker Keenan Robinson went in for a tackle on Baltimore receiver Kamar Aiken.
Just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier with the Washington Redskins this week, they did.
The only problem is that instead of tackling Aiken, Robinson decided to give him a piledrive tackle.

The unorthodox tackle led to a brawl that almost cleared both benches. Of course, we all know that if there's a brawl and Steve Smith's on the field, there's a 100 percent chance that he's going to get involved and that's what happened on Saturday.
Smith got into it with Redskins defensive back Chris Culliver before the two were eventually separated. The refs didn't like that Smith and Culliver went at it, so both players were ejected from the game.
Things got so out of hand during the fight that Ravens coach John Harbaugh went over to the Redskins sideline to yell at Washington coach Jay Gruden.
That obviously raises one big question.

Anyway, after all was said and done, a total of five players -- including Smith and Culliver -- were penalized. However, Smith and Culliver were the only ones ejected from the game.
The ejection wasn't a complete loss for Smith: He got to watch the rest of the game with his son.
