It's been nearly two years since it was revealed that the story of Manti Te'o's deceased girlfriend "Lennay Kekua" was revealed to be just that, a story. Despite the passage of time, it appears his NFL opponents are still bringing it up to get in the head of the young Chargers middle linebacker.
Te'o had a comeback of his own for Davis.
"I got harassed a few times last year. I expected that. But this year?" Te'o told UT-San Diego. "I told him, 'Find a new joke.' "
While Davis' burn doesn't appear on the official stat sheet, Te'o's sack of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and 11 tackles -- one for a loss -- do.
Ultimately, San Diego staged a come-from-behind win to beat San Francisco, 38-35, in overtime at the 49ers' brand new $1.3 billion Levi's Stadium. The 49ers (7-8) have won just three games in their new home, but could get to .500 with a win Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals (11-4).
The Chargers (9-6) can make the playoffs with a win Sunday in Kansas City against the Chiefs (8-7).
