The two star members of the Miami Dolphins backfield watched the final minutes of the team's disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday from the locker room.
Wide receiver Jarvis Landry and running back Kenyan Drake were ejected with a little over six minutes left in the fourth quarter following a brawl on the field.
It was an emotional moment for the men, with Landry playing in what could be his last game as a Dolphin and Drake breaking down in tears as he marched off the field holding his own helmet and a football.
Landry managed to still break his record for receptions despite the early exit, but fell just 14 yards short of a 1,000-yard season.

Landry marched over to Poyer and swiftly headbutted his face mask before slapping his helmet while the referees and other players tried to separate the two men.

An enraged Drake then assumed the form of a champion discus thrower and launched a helmet belonging to a member of the Buffalo Bills over 20 years down the field.
That led to some more throwing from the referees, who had tossed almost every single penalty flag int heir possession onto the field by the end of the melee.
Landry was disqualified for the personal foul against
