Watch Patriots' Antonio Brown celebrate news of Raiders releasing him

Antonio Brown wasn't exactly forlorn when the Raiders released him Saturday morning. 

The four-time All-Pro receiver posted a YouTube video of him reacting to the news and he, uh, took it very well. 

After excitedly running around his passing machine-featuring backyard, Brown shouts "Grandma, they freed me!" to her on the other end of his phone at the end of the video. 

Given his last 24 hours, Brown's pivot to video should come as no surprise. Shortly after reports surfaced that the Raiders fined Brown, Brown posted a stylishly edited video to his YouTube channel featuring a candid conversation between him and Raiders coach Jon Gruden. 

That video, entitled "THIS IS MY LIFE. AIN'T NO MORE GAMES," ultimately proved to be a sign of things to come. The Raiders voided the $29.125 million guaranteed in Brown's contract Saturday morning, and Oakland released him hours after he asked the team to do so in an Instagram post. Shortly after he became eligible to sign elsewhere as a free agent, Brown agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New England Patriots.

This, of course, isn't the first time a Drew Rosenhaus-represented wide receiver made waves from his home while shirtless. Terrell Owens, Rosenhaus' client during his playing days, infamously addressed reporters while working out in his driveway after the Philadelphia Eagles sent him home. Before Brown posted his own shirtless video, Owens told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he thought Brown's actions made the Hall of Famer's actions look tame. 

If Bill Belichick is even aware this video of Brown exists, imagining his reaction is an amusing exercise.

The good news is the Raiders are going up against the worst run defense in the league. The even better news is Oakland has Josh Jacobs.

The Bengals head to the Coliseum on Sunday to face a Raiders team that is favored to win. Cincinnati has the worst record in the league, so that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Quarterback Derek Carr hasn't thrown an interception in nearly a month and is looking like his old successful self.

This is guaranteed to be a fun game for the Raiders and their fans.

Raiders-Bengals odds, predictions: Betting lines, picks for NFL Week 11 game

The Raiders head into their Week 11 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals with a leg up. The team will be going up against the worst run defense in the league.

The Bengals give up 173.0 yards per game and have yet to win a matchup this season. This win is pretty much in the cards for the Silver and Black. Plus, this is a huge opportunity for Josh Jacobs (and his fantasy owners) to capitalize on his running game. 

On the other side, Bengals RB Joe Mixon is 14th in the NFL with 131 carries this seasons.

If you're a betting person, the Raiders are favored in the upcoming matchup according to Sportsline
