The ejection came after Packers defensive lineman Letroy Guion jumped offsides and hit Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota before the snap. Several Titans offensive lineman went after Guion for hitting their quarterback. As an official tried to separate scuffling players, Lewan appeared to push the ref.
Lewan's ejection was the sixth of the season by referee Jeff Tripplett's crew, by far the most in the NFL. After the game, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he agreed with the decision to eject Lewan.
"It was the right call," Mularkey said. "Taylor should not have been where he was. He should have been back in the huddle -- no excuses. He shouldn't have been there."
