In the first quarter, the Eagles picked up a first down after Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips jumped offsides on fourth-and-1. Once Phillips crossed the line of scrimmage, he sent Eagles guard Cam Jurgens to the ground.

The referees called a five-yard penalty for encroachment, but no flags were drawn for the hit on Jurgens.

“I thought it was bull s**t at the time,” Eagles center Jason Kelce told the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday. “He purposely tried to hurt Cam Jurgens. I thought it should have been a personal foul and I think he should be fined for that play.”

This was not the only play or interaction that Phillips is being criticized for in their 37-34 loss to the Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. During overtime, Phillips was caught on video exchanging words with an Eagles fan as his teammate Shaq Lawson shoved him.

Phillips later claimed those Eagles fans threatened his family. These claims have been refuted by Eagles fans who were involved in the confrontation.

Delivering a cheap shot on Jurgens was not his only wrongdoing. The 31-year-old targeted a few other players throughout the game, but the five-time All-Pro center remains frustrated about the unnecessary hit Jurgens took.

“Now, I’m not going to comment on the rest of the game,” Kelce told 94WIP. “There were things happening with the fans, I don’t know what happened that got him that fired up. But I thought that play in particular was absolutely a disgrace that the NFL should not allow, I really do.”
