FOXBORO (CBS) – It’s safe to say Sunday’s throttling of the Patriots had a special meaning for Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis.

Lewis, the former Patriots, was asked after his Titans beat New England soundly, 34-10, if it was personal.

“Hell yeah it’s personal,” Lewis said, via NFL Network’s Mike Giardi. “That’s what happens when you go cheap. You get your a– kicked.”

In a follow-up, Lewis said the Patriots can be beaten by a team that handles them physically.

“I didn’t have to prove anything. I know I can play,” Lewis said, again per Giardi. “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.”

After three years with the Patriots, Lewis cashed in with a four-year deal worth $23 million with $11.5 million guaranteed.

On Sunday, Lewis cashed in on the field with a convincing win over his former team.
