Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints

Alvin Kamara, Christian Wilkins get into skirmish over stolen towel (Video)

Saints running back Alvin Kamara didn’t take too kindly to Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins stealing his towel after a third-down stop.

The New Orleans Saints came into Monday Night Football against the surging Miami Dolphins with something to prove. With a roster depleted by COVID, Sean Payton’s team still wasn’t about to go down without a fight. But running back Alvin Kamara might’ve had just a bit too much fight.

Miami took an early lead and the New Orleans offense looked anemic early on with rookie Ian Book having to take the start at quarterback. So when the Dolphins got a third-down stop and defensive lineman Christian Wilkins started with some shenanigans, the running back wasn’t in the mood.

Namely, he took offense after a heated play when Wilkins snatched the towel off of his back, which led to Kamara turning around and shoving the big man in the back, earning a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the process.

It’s a pretty well-known unwritten rule not to do stuff like what Wilkins did — you don’t snatch towels, chains, etc. unless you want to start something.

With that said, the Saints running back undeniably delivered a little extra contact to Wilkins in the first place after the play, so there’s a good chance that the former first-round pick for Miami was already in retaliation mode when he did that.

Regardless, it was all just a minor skirmish, albeit one that cost New Orleans 15 yards in the process.

But hey, at least Kamara had sense enough to get into it with someone on the other team, unlike the Washington Football Team on Sunday Night Football.
