The Bills handed the Jets one of their worst losses of the season on Sunday, beating down their AFC East rivals, 32-6. After the game, tempers flared between players on both sides and a big fight reportedly broke out in the tunnel to the locker room.
Per Connor J. Hughes of SNY, among those involved in the fracas were Buffalo’s Dion Dawkins and New York’s Micheal Clemons, who had been entangled in a bit of a skirmish late into Sunday’s game, in which Dawkins was penalized for unnecessary roughness.
Hughes reports that an unspecified Bills player was overheard mocking the Jets after the game, saying, “And we beat that ass, too!”
There was just a HUGE fight in hallway leading back to the locker rooms between the #Jets & #Bills. Dion Dawkins was involved in it from the #Bills. A very emotional Michael Clemons off field, too.— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) November 20, 2023

Frustrations had been running high throughout the game for the Jets with the offense failing to find a spark and the defense surrendering the most points its allowed all season. At one point, Sauce Gardner was even flagged for suplex tackling Stefon Diggs.
Those tensions carried over into the postgame, and per the report, things escalated in the tunnel.
Sunday’s game was the last time the Jets and Bills will meet during the regular season, having split their season series with one win apiece. They previously faced off in Week 1, a game which New York won 22-16.
