Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake on the melee with Bills: ‘At the end of the day, it was stupid on my part’

During the fourth quarter of Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake and wide receiver Jarvis Landry both lost their cool after a touchdown run.

Bills and Dolphins players got into it after Landry scored on a one-yard touchdown from quarterback David Fales. There was pushing and shoving between the Dolphins and Bills after Landry extended the ball across the goal line.

Then Landry threw a punch at Bills safety Jordan Poyer. Drake then threw Ryan Davis' helmet about 20-yards. After that, the officials then ejected both Landry and Drake.

On Monday morning, Drake spoke about the incident and what exactly happened.

"It was a little pile-up," Drake said. "I felt like they kind of grabbed on Jarvis and pulled him and the refs didn't kind of officiate in a manner that didn't have repercussions for the Bills players because they were kind of pushing people at the end of the whistle, things of that sort. It was in the heat of the moment, I'm always here for my teammates, but I can't let that get in the way in the detriment of my team. I felt like that was an out-of-character moment for me. It was a heated situation. Especially when something had happened in the last game when we had playoff implications. It was stupid on my part just because at the end of the day we still had a chance to win that game. We had just scored a touchdown. There was still plenty of time in the fourth quarter. But you know hindsight is 20-20."

Drake had a breakout season in 2017 as he rushed for 644 yards and three touchdowns in six starts. He said it is hard reflecting on his season after the Dolphins rough 6-10 finish.

"I haven't really came with a detailed plan or anything concrete. Right now, I'm going to kind of decompress from yesterday, just enjoy the time off, be with family as I don't get to see them as often with the season schedule as I feel like that's the most important thing.
