Cleveland Browns’ Jarvis Landry isn’t holding anything back, calling Raven’s cornerback Marcus Peters “a coward” after his spitting incident.
“Everybody knows what type of player he is and the type of person he is,” says Jarvis Landry. He is, of course, speaking on the Baltimore Ravens’ cornerback, Marcus Peters. Landry’s strong words come after a clip from their Monday matchup shows Peters spitting at Landry after the Browns’ star turned his back to walk away.
“He’s a coward,” Landry adds Thursday, according to ESPN. “I think he knew that maybe behind my back he’d do things like that, but to my face, he wouldn’t. … Now I know. Everybody knows the type of player he is, the type of person he is,” he reiterates.
The shade-throwing spit incident happened toward the end of the first quarter during this week’s Monday Night Football. While the two were still in close proximity, Landry reveals he had no idea Peters spat at him until after the game. Then, after watching an ESPN broadcast and replay on his own accord, Landry saw Peters’ act.
“Wait until I turn around and do something like that? It’s like, do it to my face,” Landry adds. “Be a man about it if you’re going to do something like that.”

When ESPN asked Jarvis Landry if he was concerned over the spitting due to NFL COVID-19 protocols, Landry laughed. His response? “If there’s a protocol for being a man, that sure ain’t it right there.”
As for the game itself, the Ravens took home victory, with Baltimore defeating the Browns 47-42 in what ESPN calls “one of the top games of the season.”
Landry says he won’t forget the spitting incident, either. If the two teams advance to the postseason, they could end up meeting in the AFC playoffs.
“I won’t lose sleep. But definitely going to make it another game to remember,” ends a very riled Jarvis Landry.
