In case you thought the Bennett Brothers were putting on a show for everyone in their ESPN interview that aired last week, they weren’t. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett even put the next-level trash talk where is mouth is, essentially calling Falcons’ left tackle Jake Matthews “a little bitch” after the game on Sunday.

Matthews put a cut block on Bennett’s right leg in the third quarter of the Seattle-Atlanta game this week that sent the defensive end into the locker room and out of the game. Things looked dire for Bennett’s knee, but he said that he’s fine and will be ready for the Cardinals in Week 7. See the bend here:

Matthews was the sixth overall pick out of Texas A&M in 2014, interestingly enough meaning that he and Bennett are fellow Aggies. Clearly there is no loving relationship there though after the block that Bennett feels could have ended his season early. Is it a coincidence that his brother Martellus took a low hit from Vontaze Burfict in the Patriots-Bengals game on Sunday when the ball wasn’t even being thrown to him?
Michael and Martellus Bennett called out former teammates in an E:60 special for ESPN last week, including Martellus saying that the Bears roster was “full of bitches” and that he hated Jason Witten in Dallas. Sunday, they both appeared to escape potentially hazardous low hits to the knee.
