Besides the Patriots getting blown out by the Titans, 34-10, the biggest story from Sunday was Dion Lewis taking a shot at his former team after the game.

"Hell yeah it's personal. That's what happens when you go cheap," Lewis said, via NFL Media's Mike Giardi. "You get your ass kicked."

He added: "I didn't have to prove anything. I know I can play. I just had to let our team know that these guys are beatable. ... I know those guys. I know that you be physical with them and let 'em have it and they'll fold."

Lewis also took some digs at the Patriots on social media, even though he didn't play much of a role in the outcome. Lewis finished with only 57 yards on 20 carries.

On Kirk & Callahan Monday morning, Tom Brady was asked his thoughts on the comments and the way people act when leaving the Patriots.

“It’s an emotional thing. I think people have different emotional feelings," Brady said. "Dion had a great career here. It’s hard to see great players go and I know it’s not the first time it’s happened, it has happened to a lot of guys. I am sure when they go to different places they want to beat us, absolutely. I can understand that emotion. We’ve had guys come from other teams and they have wanted to beat that team. It’s just part of the sport.

"I give them credit, they beat us. When you win, you can say a lot of things. That is the reality of winning. We’ll just take our lumps and try and learn from them. And come out here and do a lot better job the next six weeks.”

Who knows, maybe the two teams will meet again in the postseason. That would be interesting.
