The Dallas Cowboys, after six straight defeats heading into week 10, are in must-win territory as they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today.
And it looks like the pressure is getting to some of the Cowboys roster if reports of a confrontation on the sideline this afternoon are to be believed.
And, as you might expect, controversial defensive end Greg Hardy is at the center of the drama.

According to Cowboys Radio Network's sideline reporter Kristi Scales, via ProFootballTalk, Hardy and his fellow defensive end Demarcus Lawrence had to be separated by staff after getting into it on the sideline during the second quarter.
Hardy and Lawrence were apparently "nose to nose" as the Dallas defense got into it during the crunch game. It must be stressed, however, that there are limited details as to just what caused the issue and just how serious it was.
Considering though, this isn't the first time Hardy has got into it with a teammate mid-game this season, it's not exactly a trend the Cowboys would have wanted to see continue.
Indeed, with Hardy remaining in the headlines in relation to his domestic violence history, Dallas would have been desperate to see the defensive end show up in the headlines for his on-field play.
Dallas, at the time of writing, have restricted the Bucs to just three points as we approach the fourth quarter so Hardy surely can't be too satisfied with his defense's work so far today.
