Detroit tight end has words for Giants’ safety

NFL: Detroit Lions at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions dominated the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, 24-10. The Lions may have won the game but their starting tight end, Eric Ebron, is still not happy with Giants safety Landon Collins following a hit in the first half.

The hit occurred in the first half, followed by an Ebron touchdown catch later on in the half.

"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 then fired back on Twitter:

Ebron finished the game with zero catches while Collins was guarding him.
