CLEVELAND -- Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins tore into Terrelle Pryor on Sunday after the receiver's six-catch, 131-yard day, saying in two obscene tweets that the receiver's performance in the Browns' 27-13 loss could be attributed to zone coverage.

There wasn't any noticeable incident between Jenkins and Pryor during the game. But there had been some apparent friction between them in the leadup to it.

Pryor took the high road Sunday in his response.

Pryor's biggest play came on a 54-yard reception against rookie cornerback Eli Apple. Browns rookie receiver Corey Coleman caught a 21-yard touchdown with Jenkins in coverage.

Jenkins (5-foot-10, 198 pounds) said he didn't consider Pryor (6-foot-4, 223 pounds) a significant challenge earlier this week.

"No," he said, "because he is another receiver. He is just big."

Pryor had responded via Twitter, saying "talk is talk. We will see Sunday. Never wanted to play the game as much as I do this Sunday!"

Jenkins finished with five tackles -- including two for a loss -- with one sack and two passes defended despite shuffling in and out with a minor injury in the second half.
