During an episode of “The Morning After” podcast, Kelly Stafford tried to make sense of a vulgar exchange between her husband and Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Stafford spoke about his experience after attending the Rams’ 30-27 victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday. She also recalled an incident that caused her husband, quarterback Matthew Stafford, to be threatened on the field.
In the first quarter of the matchup in Tampa Bay, Stafford fell to the ground while throwing an incomplete pass. The Los Angeles quarterback’s leg appeared to push Suh further as he fell to the ground, sparking a brief spat between the former teammates.
Suh and Stafford were teammates on the Lions from 2010 to 2014. Stafford was selected first overall in the 2009 NFL Draft, then Suh was selected the following year as the second overall pick.
“‘I’m going to fuck you, I’m going to fuck you,'” Suh reacted as he pointed at Matthew, according to Kelly.
Kelly also discussed her conversation with Stafford on Sunday night following the incident on the field. She explained that she didn’t really understand what was going on before Suh looked him in the face.
“I really don’t know what happened. I really didn’t know who knocked me down. But I remember being knocked to the ground and someone coming at me and shoving him off me to try to get to the next play, and then Suh was in my face telling me I was leaving. to (expletive) get up,” Stafford said, according to The Morning After. “‘I don’t know, I guess he doesn’t like me.’ … He laughed a little when I asked him about it, he said, ‘I really have no fucking idea what this guy is doing. I don’t know why he’s so mad at me. ‘.”
With victory against the Buccaneers in the divisional round, the Rams will advance to the NFC conference championship game next Sunday. Los Angeles will host the 49ers in a battle for the conference title and a chance to host the Super Bowl from SoFi Stadium.
“I feel like he’s the only player in this league that really doesn’t like Matthew and we don’t know. We don’t know why,” Kelly said. “Now he may not like it for a damn reason (because we won). I thoroughly enjoyed it and that’s all I’ll say.”
