The Pittsburgh Steelers defensive linemen were clearly not happy with one another, for whatever reason.
It happened on the sideline.
I am referring to the sideline scuffle between Isaiah Buggs and Carlos Davis.
CBS did a great job catching the disagreement on the sideline, and how Chris Wormley, and eventually Mike Tomlin, had to step in to calm the two young defensive linemen down. Didn’t catch it? Check it out below:

The scuffle most likely had to do with frustrations about playing time, but Buggs’ had to have some extra motivation considering the Steelers’ coaching staff had elected to have Davis active, making him a healthy scratch.
After the game Mike Tomlin was asked about the sideline interactions between Davis and Buggs, and he side-stepped the questions essentially chalking it up to two players who were fighting for playing time and wanting to best the other.
