The Lions might have come away with a win over the Giants Monday, but tight end Eric Ebron is still not pleased with at least one play that occurred in the first half.
Giants safety Landon Collins unleashed a big hit on Ebron in the early portion of the game, which still has the tight end stewing. That, however, didn't stop Ebron from catching a touchdown during the second quarter of action.
"I was pissed off," Ebron told the Detroit News. "I was pissed off at that little punk of a safety that got over there. ... I just told him good hit. He may have said some other things, but it's cool.
"Collins, he played a good game, that hit just pissed me off and I didn't feel like celebrating. I wasn't in that kind of joyful mood. It was still a good game. He played his butt off trying to guard me. I commend him for that."
Collins responded to Ebron over Twitter.
Be a bully...still zero catches on me between those lines💯 https://t.co/ciYSx55HXh- LANDON COLLINS (@TheHumble_21) September 20, 2017
