    Chiefs strong safety Eric Berry hinted the Buffalo Bills were out to hurt him in last season's opener, when a deliberately low block resulted in a season-ending knee injury according to the Associated Press. Although the open-field block was legal, Berry tweeted last month: "Sometimes I sit n wonder if they had a bounty out on me ... oh well ... who cares. Either way u can't hold me down." Berry said that the tweet, sent after revelations of bounties being paid out by the New Orleans Saints, was "pretty much a joke." But pressed about whether he thought the hit was intentional, the Pro Bowl safety gave the impression that he still wonders about it. "They got the tape out there, you can make your own opinion," Berry said. "I mean, my opinion is my opinion. People are going to take it how they want to take it anyway. To me, that's in the past. It is what it is."

    no way. The bills are not dirty like the saints. When williams was coaching the bills maybe but that was along time ago and there is no evidence.

    Now anytime a player gets injured they are going to wonder, was there a bounty out? EB is a great player, yes! But why would the Bills have a bounty out an a Chief, seems a little out there to me. I have re-watched that play a couple times, where the hit was a low cut block, it was no where near vicious. Just one of those plays.

    True, but whether it needed to be made was questionable. The play was a run on the left side. Berry would've had to sprint and angle toward the end zone to have a chance. Stevie still went low on him when he wasn't even close.

    It's not that it wasn't a dirty shot, it was that the block didn't need to be made.
