It seems that there may be a bit of bad blood between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.

The two AFC East rivals face off today and, before the game even started, players from the two sides were at each other's throats, with the warmups kicking off.

The Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell and Bills safety Robert Blanton were at the center of a brief pre-game scuffle, which was caught on camera. Scroll down to watch the footage.

The whole thing was started as Patriots rookies Mitchell and starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett took a pre-game jog down the Bills side of the field. 

Blanton didn't take too kindly to the Patriots players being in his area and lit the touch paper by shoving the quarterback. It is safe to say that things escalated from there.

A player will always back up his quarterback and Mitchell retaliated by getting in Blanton's face and shoving the safety, with the two then butting heads.

Several Bills defensive backs then got involved, with New England wide receivers coach Chad O'Shea getting pushed twice by Bills safety Aaron Williams for pretty much no reason. Not the best looks for the Buffalo man.
