Week 14 Recap

 WEEK FOURTEEN IN REVIS ISLAND...

   Well this week was another great week for not only Revis but the whole team. Final score: Jets 26, Buccaneers 3.

   Let's start with the awful offensive performances on both sides of the ball. Kellen Clemens, who replaced rookie Mark Sanchez this week, didn't have what you would call a good game. He didn't turn the ball over, but threw for no touchdowns and could only gain 111 yards through the air. He finished 12/23. Josh Freeman (Buccaneers QB) on the other hand, threw for 93 yards, 0 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, and finished 14/33. But the Buccaneers ground game was even worse, Josh Freeman was the leading rusher with 21 yards. Cadillac Williams finished with only 14 yards on 11 carries. Thomas Jones (Jets RB) finished just shy of 100 rushing yards, he rushed for 99, and Shonn Greene finished with 41. Brad Smith and Danny Woodhead also saw some rushing action.

   And then there's Antonio Bryant, who replaced Michael Clayton's No. 1 spot. You already know that Bryant can't do that well with Freeman's statistics, and with Mr. Darrelle Revis covering him, and you're right. He gained 22 yards on 2 receptions. And Revis also caught his 6th pass this season.

   Jim Leonhard was asked about Revis after the game and he replied, "I've never seen a corner lock down an entire side of the field the way he has this year". Deion Sanders and Rex Ryan have both said the same in different words themselves. Is Revis going to become the best of all time? Next week, "Rowdy" Roddy White takes on Revis, and the Falcons take on the Jets. This is a huge game for New York and look for Revis to shut out another Pro-bowl receiver.
