Sherman & Bills take blocked-kick feud to Twitter

Richard Sherman has become public enemy number one after his blocked kick attempt in Monday night's game, but that has not stopped him continuing to row with the Buffalo Bills.

Sherman hit Bills kicker Dan Carpenter in Monday's 35-25 win for the Seattle Seahawks, but there was no penalty called as the cornerback was offsides. 

Essentially, the play should have never happened, but there still should have been a flag thrown, as the NFL's senior vice president of officiating, Dean Blandino, explained.

"We looked at it, it is a foul, it's no different than a defender coming offside and hitting the quarterback after the whistle blew, so it should have been unnecessary roughness," said Blandino.

However, the Pro Bowl corner is staying strong in his stance that he did nothing wrong.

Shortly after Sherman's tweet on the matter, the Bills' social media team followed up with a bit of a subtweet.

The Bills will also be without their starting center for the rest of the season.

Eric Wood suffered a broken leg in Monday's game and will not return for the rest of the year, Bills coach Rex Ryan said after the game.

"That's a huge loss because I think he's the best center in football," Ryan said. "But we got to find ways to overcome it."

Wood sustained the injury in the fourth quarter, when his leg was trapped as Bills running back Mike Gillislee ran for a one-yard touchdown.
