In the lead-up up to Thursday's Bengals-Jets game, Terrell Owens called Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis "average" and said he had yet to prove he was more than a one-year wonder. Thursday night, Revis let his actions do the talking, helping to hold T.O. to three catches for 17 yards in New York's 26-10 win. "Just trying to make ends meet out there for an average corner," Revis said. "They stuck me on the best receiver, Terrell Owens. I was kind of shocked that they put an average corner on one of the best receivers in the league. But I guess I managed to do OK against him."
Revis, who last year criticized Owens and then-Patriots receiver Randy Moss, admitted that Owens' comments fired him up. "I didn't like it," Revis said of the comments. "I felt that it was disrespectful. I mean I'm sure he felt the same way when I called him a slouch last year. So it goes vice versa with the feelings. I felt he...
One of the big reasons the Patriots were down 17-10 at halftime to the 2-8 Lions on Thursday was the pressure the Lions were getting on Tom Brady.
Ndamukong Suh sacked Brady in the first quarter and the Lions athletic front, led by Kyle Vanden Bosch, hit Brady hard at least five other times as Brady was held in check.
"Once the speed of the game slowed down, we got everything under control," Brady said. "They've got a hell of a pass rush."
Then the offensive line held their end of the bargain in the second half, keeping Brady upright and allowing the QB to fire four TDs, including a long, game-changing 79-yard bomb to Deion Branch. The Patriots went on to score a 45-24 win over the Lions in Detroit on Thursday.

Bill Belichick met with the media after the Patriots defeated the Lions on Thanksgiving by a 45-24 final, a win that moved the Patriots to 9-2 on the season. The head coach was asked about the effort of his team to this point of 2010.
"I really appreciate what these guys have done so far this year to be where we are at," said Belichick. "It's taken a lot of hard work, it hasn't always been perfect - sometimes it hasn't even been good - but it is what it is. We have a good opportunity ahead of us, so we'll relax, kick back for a couple of days of rest and be ready and roll coming in here next week with the Jets."
The Patriots trailed at the half Thursday by a 17-10 score, but ran away with the game in the second half thanks to four Tom Brady TD passes and a couple of key INTs from rookie Devin McCourty. Belichick was impressed with the performance of his team in the final 30 minutes.
Deion Branch caught two touchdown passes, Devin McCourty intercepted two Shaun Hill passes - setting up a pair of touchdowns - as the Patriots rallied for 35 second-half points to steamroll past the Detroit Lions, 45-24, Thursday at Ford Field. BenJarvus Green-Ellis also ran for a pair of touchdowns as the Patriots improved to 9-2 on the season.
Trailing 14-3 in the first half and 17-10 at halftime, Tom Brady fired four second-half touchdowns and finished 21-for-27 for 347 yards to help the Patriots overcome early sluggishness. Brady and Branch kick-started the Patriots with an electrifying 79-yard TD connection that put the Patriots in a 24-24 tie, in the third quarter. Branch finished with three catches, two touchdowns and 113 yards as the Patriots scored 28 unanswered points.
