FOXBORO -- Chandler Jones reads his tweets. All of them.

Prior to Sunday's win over the Tennessee Titans, Jones received a tweet that eerily predicted his strip-sack that led to a Dont'a Hightower fumble recovery and a touchdown, in Madden '13.

The tweet played out the exact scenario as it happened later on in the day, in real life.

"It's funny that that happened, because every time someone mentions me on twitter, I read it. I read it all the time," said Jones on Monday. "And one of the fans had mentioned, 'I'm playing Madden, and you got a strip-sack fumble and Hightower picked it up for a touchdown.' That was right before the game, I was reading that. And for it to happen in real life, I thought it was great. I thought it was like a dream come true. It was pretty funny that that guy predicted it."

Here's the Tweet from the Patriots fan Sunday morning:
