Tension and frustration struck the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sideline as linebacker Adam Hayward shoved linebackers coach Bryan Cox.

Tampa Bay lost a close game to the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 23-21 last week and quickly found themselves in 24-0 hole to the New Orleans Saints this week.

In the midst of these troubles, this shove happened:

It is clear that Cox was actually the one to push Hayward aside first as he attempted to yell toward someone on the field, but Hayward's two-arm shove in return was the issue.

Whatever Hayward's reasoning, (legitimate or not) he cannot allow his emotions to get the best of him and put his hands on his own coach. 

This is the type of situation that both men will likely ignore or disregard after the game, but the frustration for the flailing Buccaneers will unfortunately continue.
