Tensions between the Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans were high before kickoff Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.

A bunch of Titans players were gathered on the Ravens logo at midfield, including former New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, and Baltimore was not amused.

Here's a description of the events that transpired, per ESPN's Jamison Hensley:

Daniel Oyefusi of the Baltimore Sun captured some video of the incident:

These pictures show Butler and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh shouting at each other:

This is the first meeting between the Ravens and Titans since last season's AFC playoffs when Tennessee upset No. 1 seed Baltimore in the Divisional Round at M&T Bank Stadium. 

Both teams are 6-3 and jockeying for position among the AFC wild card playoff spots entering Sunday's Week 11 matchup. Each of these clubs is coming off a Week 10 loss, too, so there's definitely a lot of motivation on both sidelines.
