Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan accused Redskins cornerback Josh Norman of “trying to hurt” Derrick Henry after the two were involved in an ugly confrontation after Saturday’s game in Nashville.
The Titans’ 25-16 victory over Washington effectively ended the Redskins’ playoff aspirations while strengthening Tennessee’s own bid for a post-season spot.
After the game had finished, Norman tossed his helmet at Lewan, who mimicked the corner’s bow-and-arrow celebration, before grabbing his arm and facemask.
The two continued to argue with each other before Norman was pulled away by a member of Washington’s staff.
Lewan explained that he had been angered by what he perceived to be underhand tactics from Norman during a fourth-quarter drive that culminated in a go-ahead score for the Titans.
“I’m not worried about Josh Norman, man. I’m an offensive lineman; he’s a DB,” Lewan said, via ESPN.

“I don’t even know who that is. I was p***** — he was trying to hurt Derrick Henry during that four-minute [drive].
“That’s not the way football is supposed to be played, man. It’s not our fault you’re not relevant anymore.”
Norman declined to speak to the media after the game.
