The New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game got a little testy, with Giants rookie receiver Kadarius Toney ejected for throwing a punch.

But that was not the only punch thrown, apparently.

Giants tight end Evan Engram told Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News that Cowboys’ Jayron Kearse punched him in the face when the game ended.

“I was pushing him around the whole game, so he was probably just mad about that,” Engram said. “It’s whatever.”

Engram categorized the incident as “a little baby punch,” explaining that was the reason he did not punch back. That, and not wanting to get fined.

“I don’t need any of that,” Engram added. “It was a little baby punch anyway. It was soft. So I definitely want to keep my money in my pocket. I’m good.”
