The Stevie Johnson–Darrelle Revis Week 1 matchup has gotten more than a few minutes of coverage leading up to the opening weekend.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said he’s also looking forward to the matchup.
“Revis is a great player and the best corner in the league, I think without a doubt, and I think Stevie is a great player as well and so that is a matchup,” he told “NFL AM” on Wednesday morning.
Johnson earned 159 yards with a touchdown in his two meetings against Revis last season, numbers that seems enormous given Darrelle’s stingy nature.
Fitzpatrick said with all the man coverage the Jets will throw at Johnson, he’s going to try to feed his best playmaker the ball as much as possible.
“Every time they go against each other it’s an interesting matchup and you don’t know who is going to get the best of it,” he said. “(The matchup) is one that I like to get my guy the ball and they’re definitely going to be in man-to-man coverage on him so we will see how it goes. “
