Dion Lewis didn't say much leading up to Sunday's game between the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots, but afterward was a different story.

Lewis had 68 total yards in Tennessee's 34-10 victory.

"I didn't have to prove anything," Lewis said. "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 had 1,110 yards of total offense last season, but the Patriots allowed him to walk in free agency. He signed a four-year, 19.8 million deal with the Titans.

"Hell yeah, it's personal," the 28-year-old said. "When you go cheap, you get your ass kicked."
