The New York Jets finally showed a little passion after the game was over.
A fight between Buffalo Bills and Jets players broke out inside a Highmark Stadium tunnel on Sunday.
Footage showed action from the field carrying over into an area that leads to team locker rooms following a 32-6 home victory by the Buffalo Bills.
Jets defender Micheal Clemons and Bills offensive lineman Dion Dawkins appeared to ignite the skirmish.
As players and field personnel exited the field following the conclusion of the game, Clemons and Dawkins kept approaching each other.
An attempt was made to separate Clemons from Dawkins but the duo continued to converge.
“I’m a humble guy,” Dawkins told New York Upstate. “I’m not a fan of the Jets. Very disrespectful players.
“It’s what it is and when we could run and pass and beat a team like that – cool. Thumbs up. … (It’s) Guys playing with a lot of emotion and a lot of physicality. But just a lot of BS and a lot of BS, those guys. It’s what it is.”
Despite multiple staff members standing between the two opposing players and the game being finished, the scene escalated in front of emergency service vehicles.
Clemons eventually was pulled away in front of an ambulance.
But that didn’t stop the Jets defender from continuing to go at Bills players, as more team and stadium personnel attempted to stand in Clemons’ path.
It was an odd and disturbing event that could have become much worse.
The Jets barely showed up on the field for four quarters.
New York quarterback Zach Wilson had one of his worst games as a pro, completing just 7-of-15 passes for 81 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a 57.9 rating.
Wilson’s job could again be in trouble, while the Jets fell to 4-6.
Buffalo rebounded from a week of drama to put up 32 points.
Bills QB Josh Allen looked sharp again, completing 20-of-32 passes for 275 yards, three TDs and a 108.2 rating.
