Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

rarely even on Twit­ter do we see NFL play­ers from op­pos­ing teams get into it with each other, even in this day and age of thin skins and hair-trig­ger get-backs.

That’s why it ac­tu­ally was kind of fun to read Mon­day on Twit­ter a cou­ple of buf­falo bills de­fen­sive linemen go back and forth with Ten­nessee Ti­tans left of­fen­sive tackle Tay­lor Le­wan.

The bills de­feated the Ti­tans on sun­day 14-7, in large part be­cause the buf­falo de­fen­sive line ate up the Ten­nessee O-line, which was sup­pos­edly bol­stered by the re­turn of Le­wan, who sat out the first four games for a Ped sus­pen­sion.

Le­wan ap­peared to kick off the so­cial-me­dia spat when he tweeted an in-jest “shout out” to backup bills de­fen­sive end shaq Law­son “and his dom­i­nant stats” on sun­day: No tack­les, no sacks, noth­ing.

“(y)our’re a mon­ster ha­haha,” Le­wan tweeted to the “#1stround­backup.”

This, even though the bills sacked Ten­nessee Qb Mar­cus Mar­i­ota five times, hit him three other times, had seven tack­les-for-loss in all and held the Ti­tans at­tack to a measley 252 yards.

Law­son re­torted: “still was whoop­ing your ass all game.”

Law­son’s line­mate Jor­dan Phillips, who had three first-half sacks, replied to Le­wan twice as fol­lows, punc­tu­a­tion and spell­ing cor­rected:

“Go get drug-tested again, bum. you’re soft. cry­baby. I’m sur­prised you even fin­ished the game.

“Man didn’t say one word dur­ing the game be­cause he was get­ting tore up. Now he wants to take it to so­cial me­dia. you’re a joke, al­ways been a joke.”

Law­son also tweeted (again, cleaned up): “LOL. Hope you in az dur­ing the off­sea­son, tough guy.”

replied Le­wan: “yup, and it will go just like last time. you, tired as f---, and me crush­ing work­outs. #bighugstin­ykisses.”
