Chicago Bears’ Javon Wims has stunned onlookers after throwing a sucker-punch at New Orleans star CJ Gardner-Johnson during play, which sparked a wild brawl.
In an unbelievable moment, Wims finished his run at the end of the play before heading straight at the Saints star.
WHAT A BEAST: 156kg Aussie behemoth's huge hit lights up NFL
The wide receiver walked up behind Gardner-Johnson and appeared to snatch at his chain.
He then threw a wild punch at Gardner-Johnson, despite both men wearing a helmet.
Wims then shoved his opponent in the face, before Gardner-Johnson’s New Orleans teammates rushed in to help.
This sparked a wild scuffle with bodies flying everywhere as officials tried to keep both teams calm.
Wims ejected after ‘sucker-punch’
To make matters worse, Wims emerged from the scuffle jumping around and clapping his hands.
The wide receiver was eventually ejected from the game after the seemingly unprovoked attack.
Fans took to social media to blast Wims for the ‘sucker-punch’.
I can't believe I'm even seeing this. He was ejected, but I can't imagine he'll be playing next week either. https://t.co/oGSFBXOSIG

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson didn't even react to Javon Wims' first punch maybe because he was wearing a helmet when he was punched

Bears player Javon Wims walked up to a guy on the Saints and started throwing punches seemingly unprovoked. I've never seen anything like this in the NFL.
He shouldn't worry about being suspended. He should worry if he will ever play again. pic.twitter.com/s43yLc0eJ7
