The incident popped off after a skirmish that took place on the field. In the second half, Dawkins knocked Clemons backward and finished him off with a pancake tackle. Clemons took offense to the play, and he got up and knocked over Dawkins. 

The offensive lineman then embellished the situation by lying on the ground. He got up and waved back to the sideline. Dawkins was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

Buffalo won the game 32-6, but the war of words continued after the tunnel incident.

“I’m a humble guy,” Dawkins said, via Syracuse.com. “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 could run and pass and beat a team like that — cool. Thumbs up.”
