They may not be going to the playoffs, but the St. Louis Rams and the New York Giants still have plenty of fight left in them.

A sideline brawl in the Giants’ 37-27 win on Sunday in St. Louis resulted in four ejections.

The trouble started late in the first half when Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree hit New York rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out of bounds on the Giants sideline.

Ogletree then knocked Beckham down when he tried to get up.

Fisticuffs ensued.

Emotions may have been heated on the field, but Twitter enjoyed the fight.

Beckham finished with eight receptions for 148 yards and set a franchise rookie record with his 10th and 11th touchdown catches. He also broke the Giants rookie record for receptions in a season and went over 1,000 yards receiving for the year.

No wonder the Rams were mad.
