Of all the things you can do on an NFL field, throwing a punch at an opponent wearing a helmet is one of the dumbest.

Rams defensive end Chris Long has probably learned his lesson.

Things got chippy in the third quarter of the Panthers-Rams game. Panthers receiver Steve Smith, unsurprisingly, seemed to be one of the instigators. Then things boiled over in a scrum and Long lost his composure. He threw a punch.
