UPDATED 12/17, 2:50 p.m. ET: Jarvis Landry responded to the Marcus Peters spitting incident on Thursday. "He's a coward. He might do that behind by back but not to my face.... be a man about it if you're going to do something like that," he said.
He was also asked if the situation bothered him more because of COVID-19.
"If there's protocols for being a man, that's not it," Landry added. "We'll see what happens from here." As for what would happen if they met in the playoffs? Well, based on Landry's response, it would be must-see TV.

Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters appears to have spit at Cleveland Browns receiver Jarvis Landry during this week's game on Monday Night Football. In a video circulating online, Peters can be seen spitting as Landry walks away during the heated contest.
Belief that Peters intentionally spit at the Browns' star is understandable. The two teams are division rivals that may well meet each other in the playoffs, and Peters repeatedly referred to Landry as "homegirl" in a video taken after the game.
Fans debated Peters' intent and whether the move should result in fines or suspension.
Neither player has commented publicly on the incident.
