The Los Angeles Rams had no problem moving the ball in the first quarter of their divisional-round matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Matthew Stafford and Co. scored 10 points on their first two drives. Stafford was aided by a former teammate, however, in Ndamukong Suh.
The two former first-round picks of the Detroit Lions spent five years together in the Motor City, but have moved on to bigger and better things. The two got tangled up in the first quarter, as Suh made a hit on Stafford as he got rid of the ball. As both players got up, Suh had some choice words for Stafford and was flagged for taunting. Check out what happened, here.
While the head ump was announcing the penalty, Suh leaned over into his mic and asked the official if he saw Stafford kick him. The ref didn’t care to listen to his complaint, and stepped away from the star defensive lineman.
That penalty cost the Bucs 15 yards, and set the Rams up with a first-and-10 from the Buccaneers’ 18-yard line. Three plays later, the Rams extended their lead to double digits. It appears there was no love lost between these two former Lions.
