Flozell Adams tripped Justin Tuck, leading to a shoulder injury for the New York Giants defensive end. In their rematch on Sunday in the Meadowlands, the Dallas left tackle sparked a sideline scrum when he shoved Tuck from behind.
“I laugh at stuff like that,” Tuck said. “It takes a coward, and some more words I can't say, to push a guy in the back when the play is dead. It just proves what kind of dirtbag he is.”
Adams was called for a personal foul for another play, following a field goal. The NFC East battle was a chippy affair. That’s nothing new for Adams, who was yelling at Giants players. He was fined $12,500 for the tripping of Tuck. He got zapped for $7,000 for trying to kick Carolina’s Julius Peppers earlier this season, and he also has a $5,000 fine this season.
For his part, Adams had nothing to say. Asked about Tuck, he responded, “he’s a nobody.”
Make sure you circle the first meeting between these rivals in 2010.
