The Cleveland Browns beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 21-7, on "Thursday Night Football," but the big story is the brawl that ended the game and star defender Myles Garrett hitting Steelers quarterback in the head with his helmet.

After the game, Garrett was asked about the play and the lengthy suspension he is likely facing. 

While he called the play "foolish" and "embarrassing," he stopped short of apologizing for his actions.

"I made a mistake," Garrett told the media. "I lost my cool and I regret it ... that is embarrassing. What I did was foolish and I shouldn't have allowed myself to slip like that."

When Garrett was asked if he thought he had played his final game of the season, he responded, "no clue." He was also asked if Rudolph said anything to provoke his reaction, to which Garrett responded, "I'm not going to comment on it."
