The Patriots and Dolphins will face off in this week’s Thursday Night Football clash, and at least one Dolphins player is looking to really take it to the division rivals.

Linebacker Chris McCain has garnered a bit of interest in his Twitter avatar, a photoshop of him crushing the head of Tom Brady, before the game, even getting a response from Rob Gronkowski about the picture.

McCain enjoyed the uproar created by the photo, which a fan sent to him last year before a Patriots game, and posted some non-photoshopped pictures of him taking on New England as well.

McCain let his Twitter followers know he has bigger things to worry about this week than a year-old picture, as the linebacker welcomed his first child on Monday.

Hey baby. I see you. #MalaylaOdile
