Frustrations boiled over for the New York Jets in the fourth quarter Friday to a point a referee was bloodied.

After an extra point made the Miami Dolphins‘ lead 27-6, there was some pushing and shoving between the teams.

As a referee attempted to break things up, Jets defensive lineman Micheal Clemons extended an arm, and his open hand struck the face of the ref, who later spit blood.

Although it seemed accidental, Clemons was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and ejected.
