New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis says that he will play this Sunday when the Jets take on the Miami Dolphins. It is the second AFC East game of the year for the Jets, who will enter the contest at 1-1 on the season. While the Jets are seen as the better team, it has taken on the feel of a must-win game for that very reason – the Jets are in the midst of a brutal start to their schedule. Having Darrelle Revis back on the field will be a major help to their chances.
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis says that he will play this weekend when the Jets visit the Miami Dolphins, and has deemed the game a must-win. Even though it's only the third week of the season, most would agree. The Jets are still in the middle of a hellish start to their regular season schedule, with the Dolphins being a soft spot. The Jets have to capitalize and get a win on Sunday.
The Jets have a chance to have a dominate performance on Sunday against a hapless passing attack. The Dolphins feature a rookie quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, throwing to unheralded wide receivers. The most impressive aspect of the Miami offense so far has been Reggie Bush and the running game, but don't expect that to be available against the Jets. The front seven has been impressive early on this season in stuffing the run, especially against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
Darrelle Revis suffered a concussion during the first game of the season against the Buffalo Bills. He missed last week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers as he was still recovering. The Jets have said they wouldn't play Darrelle Revis unless he is 100 percent.
Having Darrelle Revis ready to go will open up the defensive playbook for Rex Ryan, a very scary thing for a rookie quarterback. There's a good chance that Ryan Tannehill will have a few "Welcome to the NFL" moments on Sunday.
