Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin refused to comment after the game.

But NFL Network and Hall of Famer Deion Sanders said that Rudolph should be fined for starting the incident.

Mason Rudolph should be significantly fined as well for trying to rip @MylesLGarrett helmet off his head which ignited the retaliation. He's not without fault in the unfortunate matter. This is a physical,emotional game played by men. Let's not forget that. @nflnetwork #Truth

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey could also face a suspension after he punched and kicked Garrett trying to get him off of Rudolph.
