NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips found another opening to beat Taylor Lewan -- this time on social media.

Lewan, the Titans' three-time Pro Bowl left tackle, tweeted a mock shout-out Monday to Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson -- a screen shot of the former first-round pick's modest stats entering Sunday's 14-7 win by Buffalo. Lawson had no tackles or sacks against Tennessee.

Lewan's swipe at Lawson on Twitter apparently was sparked by a postgame comment from Lawson on Sunday.

"We knew what his weakness was -- he gives up inside moves and this was an inside game. He's a fake tough guy. ... He was quiet today," Lawson said.

You wanna use my name to get clout stud there you go! Enjoy.

Phillips, who had a career-high three sacks by halftime, took over.

The defensive tackle wrote that Lewan should get drug tested again and called him a "soft cry baby." Phillips then shared a couple of videos of Lawson tying up Lewan so Phillips could get his second sack, followed by a tweet with a screen grab of a story about Lewan failing a drug test earlier this year with "People don't forget (at)taylorlewan77."

Then Phillips -- who played against the Titans and Lewan twice last season, first with the Dolphins and then Buffalo -- tweeted a screen grab of the Tennessee left tackle unconscious in the 2018 season opener at Miami with the hashtag "NSFW." Lewan missed the next game with a concussion.

Man didn't say one word during the game because he was getting tore up now he wants to take it to social media your a joke always been a joke

Although the Bills and Titans aren't slated to face each other again this season, it's likely that Lawson and Lewan will cross paths in Arizona. Apparently, the two players have done so while training during the offseason as Lawson tweeted he hopes to see Lewan there during the offseason.

Lewan responded to Lawson by calling him "tired as f---" while Lewan was "crushing workouts."

In that 2018 game against the Dolphins, Lewan was knocked out of the game after being hit by then-Miami defensive lineman Andre Branch. Lewan laid on the field for a few seconds after the hit, then got up and went after some of the Dolphins players. A mini skirmish ensued. Phillips was penalized for taunting and fined $10,026 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Phillips said after the Bills' win that he was happy Lewan returned from his four-game suspension against Buffalo and that he could be a part of the Bills piling up five sacks.

"That's all I have to say about him," Phillips said.
