    Default Eagles T.O.O much for Ravens

    Eagles T.O.O much for Ravens
    Chiefs stun Colts 45-35 | Scoreboard

    What does "T.O.O much for" mean?

    I think "T.O" should refer to "Terrell Owens", but "T.O.O"? And what "much for" meant?

    Context:

    Owens gets last laugh as Eagles nip Ravens
    By Rob Maadi, The Associated Press
    PHILADELPHIA Terrell Owens gave Ray Lewis some dance tips, mocking the All-Pro linebacker with a few of his own moves and making even more enemies in Baltimore. Owens had an 11-yard TD catch and David Akers kicked three field goals, helping the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Baltimore Ravens 15-10 Sunday to reach 7-0 for the first time in franchise history.

    ====================
    PS. TD catch = ?

    It's a play on words: X is too much for Y. In other words, Eagles T.0.0 much for Ravens means, The Eagles are more than a match for the Ravens.

    T. (Terrell)
    O. (Owens)
    O (refers to the score: 7-0; Note, There isn't a period after O, which means it's not an acronym--rather, it's a number, the number zero, which is often called oh, "O")
