After the Buffalo Bills’ 32-6 defeat of the AFC East rival New York Jets, the bad blood on the field almost spilled over into the locker room between two players.

Early in the fourth quarter of the game, Jets defensive end Michael Clemons and Bills offensive tackle Dion Dawkins got into a post-play altercation that ultimately led to Clemons sending Dawkins flying and rolling several yards.

Dawkins had hit Clemons late in the game and drove him to the ground, which led to Clemons retaliating by throwing the 320-pound Dawkins.

The Bills OT then attempted to roll over and fall on his back in an attempt to draw a penalty flag, but was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his first hit on Clemons.

The duo also exchanged words several times throughout the fourth quarter before the tension led to a near fight as the two teams walked to the locker room after the game.

Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was also reportedly involved in the post-game incident.

“I’m not a fan of the Jets,” Dawkins said after the game. ‘Very disrespectful players.’

After the incident, Clemons had to “calm down” according to several reports and left the locker room when asked about the altercation.

“It’s always fun when we’re out there, it gets a little dicey,” Bills tight end Dalton Kincaid said when asked about the animosity between the Bills and Jets during the game.
