Landon Collins remembers Alabama loss to Ohio State: 'They cheap shotted us'
The New York Giants will face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night with the nation watching.
While Landon Collins’ focus is entirely on helping the Giants reach the playoffs, he couldn’t help but remember his Playoff loss to Ohio State and Cowboys’ running back Ezekiel Elliott.
“They cheap shotted us. They hit all our best players,” the former Alabama star told New York Daily News. “Oh they cheap shot me in the shoulder, (couldn’t) tackle no more. Took out our best linebacker (Reggie Ragland). Blindsided him … concussed him. Then we had a rookie in there, then they took out a defensive tackle.”
That was the first upset of the College Football Playoff era, and another classic showdown between Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. Both Collins and Elliott have become some of the NFL’s rising stars, and they will get the chance to prove which is better on Sunday night.
