Today, the Ravens are claiming that while both did go at, Humphrey did not choke OBJ.
There’s been a lot of talk about the play between Marlon Humphrey and Odell Beckham Jr.

They released this close-up video to prove their point:
The Ravens also claimed that Beckham initiated the brawl by throwing punches:
ODELL BECKHAM JR. DEFINITELY PUNCHED MARLON HUMPHREY – ALSO GRABBING THE CORNERBACK’S FACEMASK, ATTEMPTING A SWEEPING LEG KICK AND PULLING HIM TO THE GROUND.
HUMPHREY DEFINITELY DID NOT CHOKE BECKHAM.
INSTEAD, HUMPHREY DID WHAT HE’S COACHED TO DO: PROTECT HIMSELF, ALL WHILE HOLDING ON TO BECKHAM’S JERSEY THE ENTIRE TIME.
Both players were flagged but neither were ejected.
