Miami Dolphins cornerback Bobby McCain has been ejected from Sunday’s contest against New England for throwing a punch at Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola.
Amendola was blocking McCain on a third-quarter run by Dion Lewis when the two went to the ground. With Amendola on his back, McCain then threw a punch while on top of Amendola and was booted from the game.
With another week of football, comes another ejection. Bobby McCain is the latest culprit. Don't think it matters much, as the #Dolphins trail 28-10 against the #Patriots, as we head to the 4th quarter. #FinsUp #MIAvsNE #NFLSunday pic.twitter.com/kMOQ0ij1G4

McCain was booed profusely and very upset as he excited Gillette Stadium.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowsk capped the possession by hauling in a 15-yard touchdown from Tom Brady.
McCain was having a good game prior to being ejected. He picked off Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the second quarter and had two tackles and one pass defense.
The Dolphins (4-7) are in the midst of a season-high, four-game losing straight entering Sunday’s game against New England (8-2).
