Brandon McDonald vs. T.O.?

Occasionally, there are NFL stories that make you say, "Where in the world did this come from?"

Owens
Owens
McDonald
McDonald
The most recent example occurred Sunday afternoon when Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens was informed that Cleveland Browns cornerback Brandon McDonald recently had a profanity-laced tweet aimed at Owens. We're not going to repeat what was said (we're a family-friendly blog, thanks). So you're going to have to click Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy's article to find out.

Owens, a likely Hall of Famer, said he was unfamiliar with McDonald until today.

"Who?" Owens responded. "I don't even know who he is. Is he Ronald McDonald?"

The Bengals will travel to play the Browns in Week 4, where these two players can settle their differences.

For whatever reason, it's been trash-talking season throughout the AFC North division. The Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers have been going back-and-forth with various comments, and suddenly McDonald and the Browns have entered the fray.
