Did Ravens running back Ray Rice spit on Phil Taylor? Watch the video

Shutdown Corner

Something provoked Cleveland Browns nose tackle Phil Taylor to smack Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice this past Sunday.

There is a belief Taylor’s response may have been because Rice spat on him.

Both men engaged in a war of words during Baltimore’s 14-6 victory this past Sunday. As they talk-trash, Rice did or said something that provoked a slap. When asked if Rice spat on him, Taylor would not say after the game.

“Look at the film, you will see . . . I’m not going to say,” Taylor told Cleveland.com. “It is what it is. I need to keep my composure.”

However, Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson insinuated the incident is something similar to Keith Hernandez spitting on Kramer and Newman in Seinfield.

“I heard a guy scream he got spit on,” Jackson told Cleveland.com “If guys are spitting, that’s immature. That’s elementary. We’re all grown men. There’s no need to spit on a guy. I don’t know if it was Ray, but apparently someone got spit on.”

It is hard to tell what occurred from the video, but check it out to draw your own conclusion – or look for the second spitter.
