Brandon Spikes dismisses ‘punk’ comment

FOXBOROUGH — Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes is not apologizing for his hit on Buffalo’s Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday — which could result in another fine — and didn’t seem fazed by the postgame reaction from the Bills quarterback, who called him a “punk.”

Asked if the comments hurt, Spikes said, “Not at all. Everybody has their opinion, and they can say what they want, but I’m just doing my job.”
