Xavier McKinney previews matchup with Miami Dolphins, former Alabama teammates
Normally when you see Alabama players face each other in the NFL, you witness a lot of love, but that won’t be the case Sunday when the New York Giants face the Miami Dolphins.
Xavier McKinney, who plays defense for the Giants, said there will be no love shown on the field towards ex-Alabama teammate and current Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
McKinney said there won’t be any mercy shown.

McKinney said during his time in Tuscaloosa he only picked off Tua once in practice and says it was tough to pick him off.
#Giants Xavier MCKinney says he only had one INT off #Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa during #RollTide practices. ‘He’s tough to get one off. Good with his eyes.’ #NYGvsMIA
