Bengals’ Boyd, Dolphins’ Howard ejected for fighting

Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd and Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard were ejected from Sunday’s game for throwing punches on the sideline.

The incident occurred with 1:08 left in the first half after an incomplete pass from Brandon Allen to Boyd.

Video replay showed Howard shoving Boyd with his left hand. Miami cornerback Byron Jones stepped between the players and Boyd made contact with Jones’ helmet while apparently reaching for Howard. Howard then took a swipe at Boyd’s chin with his right hand as the receiver was being pulled away by a coach.

Visiting Cincinnati was leading 7-3 at the time of the ejections thanks to Boyd’s 72-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

Boyd, 26, entered the game with 72 catches for 725 yards and three touchdowns this season. Howard, 27, made his league-leading eighth interception while covering Boyd in the first quarter.
