Bills offensive tackle Dion Dawkins and Jets defensive lineman Micheal Clemons appeared to get into a fight after the game, presumably stemming from an unnecessary roughness call incurred by Dawkins when he knocked down Clemons. The incident turned into an on-field scuffle that moved to the tunnel.
Dawkins was outspoken in his postgame press conference as he stated his negative feelings toward the AFC East-rival Jets.
“I’m a humble guy,” Dawkins said. “I’m not a fan, man—I’m not a fan of the Jets. Very disrespectful players. It’s what it is, and when we can run and pass and beat a team like that, cool. Thumbs up.”
The two-time Pro Bowler then told reporters to ask the Jets why they are “disrespectful.”
In regard to Clemons’s responding to Dawkins and shoving him to the ground during the on-field incident, Dawkins later said it was clear the Jets’ emotions and frustrations were high.
“It’s probably anger,” Dawkins said. “A little bit of, a lotta bit of emotions. Like, there’s a lot of emotional guys over there, very emotional guys.”
The Bills improved to 6–5 on the season, while the Jets fell to 4–6.
