Wims attempted to grab at Gardner-Johnson’s chain and threw two punches to the helmet. He was then ejected from the game.
Following the delay, the Saints intercepted Nick Foles which eventually led to a Saints win in overtime, 26-23.
The series of events started in the third quarter when Gardner-Johnson ripped Wims’ mouthpiece off after an exchange of words. During this interaction, Wims claimed that Gardner-Johnson also spit on him.
Wims was then pulled and spent 11 minutes on the bench before having a chance to be face-to-face with the defensive back again.
Throwing punches is already bad enough, but throwing punches to a helmet doesn’t do any kind of damage you’re hoping for. If you’re going to choose violence at least make sure the other person doesn’t have protective gear on.
Gardner-Johnson has declined to elaborate on what led to him being punched but has denied the claim that he spit on Wims.
