The Super Bowl ended on a very sour note as the Seahawks, frustrated over blowing the game, started to brawl with the Patriots. The brawl led to the first-ever Super Bowl ejection, as Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin was tossed for his role in the fight.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was involved in the fight as well, but wasn't ejected. He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to talk about his role in the fight.

"I got pushed or something, and it was the last game of the year and I was like, 'Screw it, I'm throwing some haymakers," Gronkowski said. "They just started coming at us. We were just trying to take a knee. [It] just happens; it's football. Just emotions [some] going. It's football, things happen.

"It's all good. I mean, it's all good. They played ball, they're a hardworking team, and we just came out and did what we did to get the win."

After realizing that he was implicating himself and making way for a hefty fine, Gronk shouted this out:

"Roger, that wasn't me," Gronkowski said.

 

Thankfully no one was hurt in the fight, but it definitely isn't the look the league wants during the most-watched television show in history.
