CINCINNATI – With one big game, Terrell Owens made his point. He's nowhere near finished.
The 36-year-old receiver had trouble finding a team that would take him this offseason, something he took as a snub. The Cincinnati Bengals finally signed him, and he's quickly turned into their leading receiver.
Owens had 10 catches for 222 yards Sunday in a loss at Cleveland. He moved into second place on the career list for yards receiving, trailing only former 49ers teammate Jerry Rice. He became the oldest receiver in NFL history to have a 200-yard game, and the only one this season.
Owens said Wednesday that the performance was proof he's not over the hill. As he put it, anyone who thinks he's fading is in for "a rude awakening."
