During an especially heated Sunday for the NFL, one fight late in the Cardinals-49ers game ended with one of my personal favorite NFL sights: an official, out of flags, throwing his hat in the air in order to call an additional penalty.

The fight started after Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea hit 49ers QB C.J. Beathard late on a slide. Three players were ejected in the aftermath of the fight: 49ers running back Carlos Hyde, as well as Cardinals defensive end Frostee Rucker and linebacker Haason Reddick.
