Pat McAfee asked Antonio Brown not to kick him in the face in front of his mom on Thanksgiving

Good-natured NFL banter is surprisingly refreshing. Too often we see players get too heated on the field, call each other out on social media, and generally make everything a little more awkward. On Tuesday afternoon, Colts punter Pat McAfee had a simple wish: That Antonio Brown wouldn’t flying kick him into oblivion while his mother was watching.

Normally, this would be a funny tweet that sits unanswered in the ether, but Brown responded.

See, this is how you do a back and forth in football. No hard feelings, just fun, and everyone had a few laughs about it. Of course, both McAfee and Brown should know exactly how the game on Thanksgiving will play out. Why? Because we took at entire team of Pat McAfees and put them against an entire team of Antonio Browns in Madden to find out. Spoiler alert: Nobody gets flying kicked.
