Darrelle Revis said a lot without saying very much Sunday night.
Revis had an opening to talk more trash to 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who struggled at times to keep up with the Chiefs’ speedy receivers during San Francisco’s Super Bowl 54 loss. Revis teased the internet with this postgame tweet:
Are y’all waiting for the flame ?? ???

Revis needled Sherman after the NFC championship game, saying he was too scared to play man-to-man. Sherman responded by citing stats and trying to knock the latter stages of Revis’ career.

Then came Sunday in Miami Gardens, and Sherman was on the wrong end of a series of plays, beginning with this ankle-breaker by Tyreek Hill.
In the fourth quarter, Sammy Watkins blew past Sherman for a big gain that set up the Chiefs’ go-ahead touchdown.
Sherman was also in the frame for that score, a short reception by running back Damien Williams:

Afterward, Sherman took ownership of his play with a few words of his own on Twitter.
Proud of this team! Wasn’t the result we wanted but we battled through. I wasn’t good enough tonight and I will fix that. Thank you for all the support all year.
