- After Monday night’s game, Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron aired some frustration he had with New York Giants safety Landon Collins. “I was pissed off,” Ebron told the Detroit News after he was asked why he didn’t celebrate his touchdown. “I was pissed off at that little punk of a safety they’ve got over there.”
Ebron got into a small spat with Collins during the game, and although the hit angered Ebron, he told Collins it was a good hit.
However, Collins recently got word of the “little punk” comment and fired back at Ebron on Twitter:
Be a bully...still zero catches on me between those lines https://t.co/ciYSx55HXh— LANDON COLLINS (@TheHumble_21) September 20, 2017
UPDATE: Ebron responded:
Lol... twitter fingers. The honey badger was better https://t.co/MzvnhT3WWa— Eric Ebron (@Ebron85) September 20, 2017
- Speaking of Ebron, it turns out the man can block:

- If you missed the Lions’ ping pong celebration after Marvin Jones Jr’s touchdown, go watch it here. On Wednesday, Golden Tate felt bad about leaving Graham Glasgow out of the fun:
