It’s unclear exactly what precipitated the little skirmish at the end of the game. Conner and Hufanga were involved in a pivotal moment in the third quarter. Conner was trying to run around the edge on a 2-point conversion try that would have cut the Cardinals’ deficit to just three points.

Hufanga stopped Conner just short of the pylon and flexed in his face afterward.
