Bears’ Anthony Miller ejected after scuffle throughout NFC wild-card sport vs. Saints – Thebritishjournal

Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller was ejected from the team’s NFC wild-card game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.

Saints defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson seemed to be talking trash to Miller after a third-down incompletion in the third quarter, and Miller retaliated by shoving Gardner-Johnson in the face.

During the Saints-Bears regular-season matchup earlier this year, Gardner-Johnson poked his finger inside Miller’s facemask. The receiver got into it with Gardner-Johnson but things between the two players stayed relatively calm.

However, tensions then boiled over between the two teams when Bears wide receiver Javon Wims punched Gardner-Johnson in the helmet.

The two started a brawl and Saints cornerback Janoris Jenkins tried to break it up. Wims was the only player ejected in the melee.

On Sunday, both Miller and Gardner-Johnson got offsetting personal fouls for unsportsmanlike conduct and Miller got ejected. Gardner-Johnson, who is in his second year out of Florida, has developed a reputation for upsetting opposing offensive players.

The Saints held a 7-3 lead over the Bears at the time of the scuffle.
