To the victor go the spoils, and nobody understands that better than Tennessee Titans left tackle, Taylor Lewan.
Prior to the start of the Tennessee Titans-New England Patriots game on Saturday night, quarterback Tom Brady posted a hype video on his Twitter timeline.
The video, which was accompanied by the text “It’s too late to be scared”, is supposed to compare Brady to a lion, an animal that is considered the “king of the jungle”.
Because of people writing Brady and the Pats’ dynasty off even before they took the field on Saturday night, the future Hall of Fame quarterback apparently felt it was necessary to post this, perhaps for extra motivation.
Following the Titans’ 20-13 win over the Patriots, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan made a few edits to Brady’s video in order to more accurately depict what happened during the Wild Card game and posted it to his Instagram page.
Several other NFL players commented on Lewan’s post mocking Brady’s hype video.
Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey: “😂😂 Yoo you tha 🐐 for this one lol.. but keep me outta ya highlights 🤣🤣”
Colts guard Quenton Nelson: “Savage”
Former Titan and current Jets linebacker, Avery Williamson: “Boss 😎”
Tennessee defensive lineman, DaQuan Jones: “Yess sirrrrrrr”
Titans defensive back, Dane Cruikshank: “Squad Full Of Savages !! 🤬”
Lewan was one-fifth of a Tennessee offensive line that dominated at the point of attack in the run game on Saturday night. As a result of the group’s dominance upfront, running back Derrick Henry was able to carry his team on his back with 34 carries for 182 yards and one touchdown.
And most importantly, Tennessee was able to come away with a win, which gave guys like Lewan all the right to gloat about the major accomplishment of winning a road playoff game in Foxborough against Brady and Co.
