One of the most memorable moments from the NFL's Week 9 action was the clash between Cincinnati Bengals' AJ Green and Jacksonville Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey.

The cornerback was covering the wide receiver throughout their entire game last Sunday, and their battle concluded after they were both ejected from the game when they came into a physical altercation.

Late in the second quarter during the Jaguars' 23-7 victory over the Bengals, Green and Ramsey got physical in an off-the-ball incident after the cornerback pushed the wideout to the ground. Green responded by throwing two punches as well as putting Ramsey in a choke hold twice.

Referees immediately ejected both players from the game for their actions, which Green later apologized for. During an interview this week ahead of Jacksonville's Week 10 clash against the Los Angeles Chargers, Ramsey revealed exactly what went down between the two.

He said, according to "I lock receivers down, physically. And then mentally I live in their mind. Get under their skin. I talk my talk. Whatever I'm going to say -- there's rumors out there that I say some deep, some personal stuff. That's not true.

"Yeah, I get out there, I do my thing. I talk s---. But I don't go personal. I don't talk about nobody's wife or nobody's kids or nobody's family. I don't do that. So that's untrue, that's not true at all. I think he even said that, though, there was nothing I said -- I didn't say nothing like that."

So what did Ramsey say to make Green - one of the more relaxed, calm wideouts in the NFL - go completely out of control? The cornerback revealed all.

"I told him almost every play that he was weak, that he was soft," Ramsey said. "Them is straight facts. He just couldn't handle the truth. Those were facts. I told him that his time was almost up. I told him that it was easy, which it was. He had one catch for six yards.

"I was just out there spitting facts to him. And he got mad. And then people are trying to talk about the push, I mean I pushed him every single play. You can go back and look at the film, I pushed him every single play. I told him to stop putting his hand on me."

Both players managed to avoid suspension for their actions, so both will be able to play this weekend, with the Jaguars facing the Chargers while the Bengals will be up against the Tennessee Titans.
