Cary Williams is quite the talker, but he sure knows how to back it up. The Eagles cornerback has made it no secret that he doesn't like the Patriots, whom Philly faced Friday night in Foxborough.

On the game's first possession, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw a pick-six right into the waiting arms of Williams.

Williams injured his hamstring on the return and was forced from the game, but it's not believed to be a serious injury. He previously referred to the Patriots as "cheaters" in reference to the Spygate scandal that rocked the franchise in 2007.

Williams was asked this week if he though his comments may incite the Patriots to target him Friday night. His response:

"I don’t care. That’s the whole point. I don’t care if they come after me or not. That doesn’t scare me. My mentality is I’ve never been a punk, never been a sissy, never been a guy that’s going to be a scared guy. I don’t play this game in fear at all. I don’t fear no man. As far as I’m concerned, you put your pants on as well as I put my pants on. We’re going to man up when we get there."

Williams has certainly "manned up" in this instance.
