The ejections came on the fourth play of the game after D.J. Ware of the Giants had a 4-yard run to the Steelers' 49.

Nicks was blocking Taylor downfield when tempers flared and a number of punches were exchanged. At least three officials tossed flags.

Referee Scott Green called coincidental personal fouls and ejected both players.

Ware later left the game with a concussion, the Giants announced. Ware also suffered a concussion against the Denver Broncos last November.
