New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers and Washington Redskins safety Landon Collins got into a small altercation after Sunday’s game ended.

One of the defensive standouts for the New York Giants during their 24-3 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday was Jabrill Peppers. The veteran racked up three solo tackles and had a pick-six off rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the third quarter. It was the so-called “splash play” that Peppers had been wanting to make.

Needless to say, the Giants’ new No. 21 came to play. However, after the game, Peppers got into an altercation with New York’s former No. 21. Safety Landon Collins, who’s now a member of the Redskins, found himself in a scuffle with Peppers, among others. Peppers is ultimately brushing it off.

Collins, who played his first career game in MetLife Stadium not wearing a Giants uniform, was also asked about the altercation. He didn’t seem to really have an answer, though, so perceive that in any way you want.

Collins racked up two solo tackles in his return to East Rutherford. Despite having four takeaways, the Redskins defense allowed two touchdowns to backup running back Wayne Gallman.

It’s still unclear who really said what. But, Peppers is right. It is “just football.” These emotions come with the sport and the profession.

The Giants have now improved to 2-2 on the year and starting off 0-2. They’re 2-0 with their new rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. Big Blue will take on the Minnesota Vikings next Sunday at home at 1:00 p.m. ET.
