Williams was covering Cooper, broke up a pass from Michael Vick and both players went to the ground. Cooper got up and shoved Williams first. Williams responded with a couple punches and had to be forcibly restrained by teammates, including Vick.

Cooper walked away after Brandon Boykin stepped in to separate the players. Williams then took his helmet off, screamed at Cooper and started walking toward him before Vick stepped in and grabbed the fiery cornerback by his jersey. Williams yelled at Vick, and an assistant coach led the quarterback away. DeSean Jackson eventually calmed Williams, who is no stranger to fights.
