Willie Young Taunts Tom Brady During Lions-Patriots Preseason Game (VIDEO)

Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young seemed to be thrilled with his team shutting down Tom Brady in a preseason game on Thursday, so much so that he rubbed it in the three-time Super Bowl champion's face.

Late in the second quarter, Young helped force Brady to throw an incomplete pass inside New England's own 10-yard line. After the play, Young grabbed Brady's jersey and stuck his finger in the quarterback's face. That prompted the officials to call a 15-yard penalty for taunting.

Young was benched after the play, per Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Unfortunately, Young won't get another chance to face Brady in the regular season. The Lions went on to win 40-9.
