Less than three minutes into their game Sunday, the Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys each lost a player to ejection after a fight broke out.

Following a failed third-down on the opening drive of the game, Cowboys defensive end David Irving got into a heated showdown with Browns center Cam Erving.

Irving punched his opponent, and the Browns lineman responded by ripping off the Cowboys defender's helmet and then throwing it at him.

Both players were ejected.
