Buffalo Bills vs Tennessee Titans: Shaq Lawson, Jordan Phillips spar with Taylor Lewan off the field

New, comments

It got salty on Twitter Monday

On Sunday, the Buffalo Bills scratched and clawed their way to a 14-7 win against the Tennessee Titans down in Nashville. Nissan Stadium actually felt more like New Era Field to the players and staff as Bills fans traveled in droves to watch their team play. It was reported that upwards of 25,000 people filled the stands for the away team, in fact.

After the game, reporters caught up with the Bills for their thoughts on the win. Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and defensive end Shaq Lawson had a few words to say about Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, who was making his return to football after being suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season. He violated the NFL’s policy against performing enhancing substances and failed a drug test for ostarine, a drug that has similar effects to anabolic steroids.

“I was really happy Lewan came back today. I’m glad he could be a part of that today,” Jordan Phillips stated about Lewan.

Phillips had three sacks on the day against Marcus Mariota.

Shaq Lawson was also unimpressed with the offensive tackle.

“We knew what his weakness was—he gives up inside moves and this was an inside game,” Lawson told reporters before calling Lewan a “fake tough guy”.

Lawson and Phillips had every right to brag, as the two often got the best of Lewan and the rest of the Titans’ offensive line for most of the day.

Apparently, Taylor Lewan heard about the comments made by Lawson and Phillips and he took to Twitter in retaliation Monday morning. Following below is the public conversation between the players so far:

Safety Jordan Poyer even stepped in with a few of his own words.

Around the league, Lewan isn’t a very well-liked player and is known for being “dirty.”

It remains to be seen whether head coach Sean McDermott, who is known for being no-nonsense and all about “culture,” will put an end to today’s Twitter Wars, but for now, we’re just enjoying the ride.
