It looks like there is some bad blood between the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens after an intense overtime battle on Monday night.

Monday night was a rollercoaster of emotion for both the Baltimore Ravens and the Indianapolis Colts, and some players seem to still be reeling from it. Namely Ravens safety DeShon Elliott, who tweeted a threatening and direct message about Colts tight end Jack Doyle.

Elliott took offense to a late game cheap shot that Jack Doyle had on Tavon Young. Wrapped up in the heat on the moment, the tight end shoved Young’s helmet back into the ground long after the play was over.

Baltimore Ravens safety warns Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle to watch out on Twitter after dirty hit.

Young’s retaliation after Doyle’s dirty move earned him a 15-yard penalty and awarded Indianapolis a fresh chance to put the game away without much time left.

Unfortunately, the Colts failed miserably to capitalize on that drive and the game went into overtime where the Ravens eventually ended it themselves on Lamar Jackson’s touchdown pass to make the final score 31-25.

A win wasn’t enough consolation for Elliott, who joined hundred of Ravens fans on Twitter in calling out Doyle.

The hostility from Elliot is seething, but he’s quick to forget the fact that his own cheap shot on Doyle last year forced the tight end to the sidelines with a concussion and resulted in a fine for the Ravens safety. Yes, pushing someone’s helmet into the ground is dirty. But so is initiating contact to the head when the player is already going down.

There is clearly a lot to unpack here, but a rivalry of traded punches and penalties between two teams who see each other frequently is never going to end well.
