"I can't deny the fact I played there for eight years and we had a lot of success". I just had to let our team know that these guys are beatable.

After the game, Lewis also took to Twitter to troll his former team. One obvious takeaway: Fortunately, they won't be facing a team led by a former Patriots assistant coach or player. He said the Patriots chose to "go cheap" and were reaping what they sowed, so to speak, and he accused his former teammates of being soft.

Tom Brady didn't have the best day against Tennessee, and he accepted "lumps" from Dion Lewis. I am sure when they go to different places they want to beat us, absolutely. "It's just part of the sport". "When you're playing from behind, you don't have a lot of opportunities to rush the passer... we didn't create enough of those situations and didn't do well enough in them when we did".

"It's a real sweet win", Lewis said.

New England came in ranked fourth in the National Football League in averaging 30 points a game, and the Patriots hadn't scored less than 25 points in each of the past six games. However when they reunited on Sunday in Week 10 for the Patriots game against the Titans, it was nothing but mutual respect.

Poking the Patriots bear always seems like a bad idea, and it's likely this will come back to bite future New England opponents, but for now, the Patriots just have to take it.

"Any time you lose, you have to learn from it", he told WEEI.

"I didn't really see or hear the comments". For a team with a history of getting off to poor starts, the Chargers have to be thrilled with being in this current position at 7-2, and could even make the AFC West a little more interesting with the Chiefs.
