In the aftermath of the Philadelphia Eagles’ overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, a video went viral among Eagles fans showing a series of questionable plays that had been made by Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips throughout the game.
Apparently, it wasn’t just the Philadelphia faithful who took notice.
Appearing on the WIP Morning Show, Eagles All-Pro center Jason Kelce was asked about the clips. In answering, the All-Pro pointed out a specific play that he thought was dirty, in which Phillips jumped the snap on a Philadelphia quarterback sneak attempt, taking out Eagles guard Cam Jurgens in the process.
“The one play was a quarterback sneak and I think times are really trying to stop that play. They talk about it all week, I’m sure they label it as some level of toughness to stop the play,” Kelce said. “I thought it was bull**** at the time. I really did. I said so to the official on the field. I said, ‘I’ve been running that play a lot of years. I have seen people jump offside. He made zero effort to stop after he jumped offside. He purposely tried to hurt Cam Jurgens. I thought it should have been a personal foul and I think he should be fined.”
"[Jordan Phillips] purposely tried to hurt Cam Jurgens and I thought it should have been a personal foul…I thought that play in particular was absolutely a disgrace that the NFL should not allow."

Kelce declined to comment on the rest of Phillips’ perceived dirty plays, as he noted it was a hostile environment in Philadelphia and something must have fired the veteran defensive tackle up. But when it came to Phillips’ “attempt” to stop the “Brotherly Shove,” it’s clear where the University of Cincinnati product stands.
“That play in particular was absolutely a disgrace that the NFL should not allow,” Kelce said. “I don’t know Jordan Phillips. He might be the best guy in the world. But that, in my opinion, the NFL needs to do something about.”
