Trai Turner / Joe Sargent/Getty Images. The Pittsburgh Steelers got off to a slow start against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday but finally found their form in the second half. Just after the beginning of the fourth quarter, Ben Roethlisberger hit rookie Najee Harris on a swing route on third-and-10, and Harris took it to the house to chop the Raiders' lead to 16-14. After the play, there were some fireworks between the Raiders' defensive line and Steelers guard Trai Turner . Turner was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct, and upon review it certainly looks like he spit on linebacker Tanner Muse.

After pulling off a massive upset victory over the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, the Pittsburgh Steelers fell back down to earth in the form of a 26-17 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. It was certainly an eventful day, as evidenced by the ejection of offensive guard Trai Turner, who was seen spitting toward a Raiders defensive player.

Following the game, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expressed his belief that Turner should not have been ejected from the contest. In fact, Tomlin says that a Raiders player spit on Turner first. Below is the incident in question.

  T.J. Watt, Steelers agree to record-breaking extension The NFL has a new highest-paid defensive player. Days away from Week 1, the Steelers and T.J. Watt ended their impasse. Watt agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth more than $112M, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. © Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Watt will receive $80M fully guaranteed on a contract that averages more than $28M annually, taking the younger Watt superstar past Joey Bosa among defenders. This certainly looks like a big win for the All-Pro Steelers edge rusher, after he and the Steelers haggled over guarantees at the 11th hour.

Steelers: Mike Tomlin says Trai Turner was spit on during Sunday's Raiders game

"Somebody spit in his face," Tomlin said, via Joe Rutter of the Tribune Review. "I understand the 15-yard penalties and so forth, gaining control of the game. But Trai is not a young guy. He's not overly emotional. He's a flat-liner. For him to respond the way he responded, what transpired, I was stating that case to them.

"I didn't believe he did enough to be kicked out of the football game."

The incident occurred in the fourth quarter after quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Najee Harris. Turner was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, along with Raiders defensive tackle Solomon Thomas who stepped in during the incident. However, it was Turner that was ejected from the game.

Right guard B.J. Finney replaced Turner for the remainder of the game.

It will be interesting to see what kind of punishment Turner will receive from the NFL after what happened on Sunday. The Steelers will look to secure their second win of the season next week when they play the rival Cincinnati Bengals.
