Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, Jaguars CB Alan Ball exchange punches (GIF)


It has been an embarrassing start to Thursday Night Football for the Houston Texans, as they find themselves in an early hole to the division rival Jacksonville Jaguars. With the early struggles for the team, the Texans are beginning to see frustration boiling over and that has translated to some punches on the field.

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Jaguars cornerback Alan Ball got into a brief exchange on the outside, when the two men got in to a brief scuffle.

Ball struck first with a stiff right, which caused Hopkins to come back with a shot of his own. It just goes to show how much losing can take it’s toll on you. Unfortunately for Hopkins and the Texans, it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier.

Here is  GIF of the physical exchange between Hopkins and Ball:
