During the Ravens’ Thursday night win over the visiting Miami Dolphins, Ravens backup quarterback Ryan Mallett was forced into action after a dirty hit from Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso forced starter Joe Flacco out of the game.
In the late stages of the game, the Dolphins continued their dirty play when defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh choked Mallett.
On Friday, Mallett jabbed back at Suh and the dolphins with the following instagram post.
What makes this even better is the fact that Mallett tagged Suh in the post that is captioned “I guess you could say we strangled them.” Suh was penalized for the play, but it’s likely that a fine is coming his way, Pro Football Talk has reported that Suh likely won’t face a suspension, which comes as surprise.
While plays of this nature are stunning to see, they shouldn't be when you consider that Suh has a long history of dirty or flagrant plays. Fortunately Mallett was able to walk away unscathed and the Ravens were able to walk away with a win.
