Well, we know what New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett has been binge watching between practices.

After the Patriots' 31-13 win over the Browns on Sunday, Bennett admitted he was channeling Marvel superhero Luke Cage, whose series premiered on Netflix recently, when he returned from an ankle injury.

"They asked me if I needed a cart and I'm just like, '(Expletive), I'm going to look so weak,'" Bennett said after the game. "And I've been watching 'Luke Cage' -- you know, he's a bulletproof brother from Marvel. And I'm like, what would Luke Cage do right now?

"He'd get up and keep bouncing around. I was like, I got to get off and just run off the field and come back into the game. I don't know, it was just in the moment, one of those things."

Bennett finished with three touchdowns and looked like a superhero to Patriots fans.
