As Tom Brady and the New England Patriots prepare to face off against the Buccaneers this weekend, there’s one familiar face on the other side of the ball that they’ve seen enough of over the past several years.  That face belongs to cornerback Darrelle Revis who faced off against Brady twice year for most of his career. Brady told Patriots.com that Revis is the best corner he’s ever played against. Yeah, I don’t think there have been many balls caught on him in these two weeks. He didn’t play the whole game against the Jets, he played pretty much the whole game against the Saints, and he looks like the same guy to me. There’s nothing negative about his playing style, there’s nothing negative about his skill set. He can really do it all. He’s fast, he’s quick, matches up against small guys, matches up against big guys. He’s really long, he’s really strong, he’s patient. Some guys you really guess all the time and sometimes you guess wrong, he never guesses wrong. He’s smart, he sees the whole field. I’ve never played against anyone who is as good as him. He’s as good as there is that I’ve ever played against, so you just have to be careful when you throw his way because you know he’s going to be close. There’s no one that’s going to be wide open, you’ve just got to make sure you put the ball in a position where only the receiver can catch it. I can hear Richard Sherman crying for attention all the way out in Seattle, but he needs to wait before Brady shows him some respect.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

Tom Brady addresses the offense's struggles

After only two games this season, it really is difficult to take statistics seriously because of the small portion of games played. Things change quickly in the NFL; teams start off hot then cool down while other teams start awful and then turn things around. So the legitimacy of stats early in the season (especially after only two weeks) is what you choose to make out of it. That...

Bill Belichick Relieved to Only Play Darrelle Revis Once This Season, But Says He Hopes to Play Him Second Time

Darrelle Revis tormented the Patriots twice a season for five years — he didn’t play in either meeting in 2012 — so Bill Belichick is well aware of the type of talent he’ll be facing on Sunday. He’s just glad he’ll only have to see the Buccaneers’ star corner once. “Well, at least we only have to play against him once, hopefully,” Belichick said on a conference...

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets: 2013 Week 3 NFL Pick

Buffalo Bills (1-1) at New York Jets (1-1) It’s really early, but the Jets have the best defense in the NFL, by far, in terms of preventing their opponent from moving the chains. They’ve allowed just 51.2% of first and 10s to be converted for a subsequent first down. Getting Tampa Bay week 1 and then a Thursday Night Game in the rain week 2 definitely helps, but you have to be...
