Anytime you put two competitors who hate to lose up against each other on the field, it shouldn’t be a surprise when tempers flare, and that’s exactly what happened Tuesday on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium.

Julian Edelman and Stephon Gilmore found themselves squaring off and in the literal heat of the moment, the two got into it after the play where blows were exchanged, leading to both players being ejected by head coach Bill Belichick.

Given their high stature at their respective positions, it was a reminder that the zero tolerance policy when it comes to fighting applies to everyone and both saw their day come to a screeching halt as they were forced to leave the field.

One fan from yesterday’s practice captured the moment, with Gilmore reaching up and pulling on Edelman’s facemask during the altercation.

Teammate Chris Hogan said moments like that unfortunately come with the territory.

“I mean it’s a hot day, guys are competing, tensions run high, but those guys will shake hands at the end of the day (and) it’ll be over with,” said Hogan via TurnTo10.com, who also posted additional photos from the skirmish.

Given that the two will be rooting for each other in the coming months on their respective sides of the football, the page will likely turn quickly when they take the field again today as they continue preparing for the 2017 season.
