So, Myles Garrett decided to play Whac-A-Mole with Mason Rudolph’s head, and somehow it wasn’t his fault?

That is what a host of keyboard warriors across the social media universe and some noted talking heads on syndicated TV shows have been preaching since the melee that took place near the end of Thursday night’s game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett, opted to use Rudolph’s helmet instead of one of those cushy mallets, then attempted to split the Steeler QB’s head open like a leftover Halloween jack-o-lantern.

Garrett certainly should be severely punished for his actions but Rudolph shouldn't get off scott free either. He clearly was partly to blame for the start and escalation.
