Calvin Johnson is used to double coverage these days. Usually covered by a cornerback and a safety when he runs a route, this week will be a little different.
All-Pro Darrelle Revis to be exact. The Jets have announced that Revis will line up against the 6-foot-5, 236-pound Johnson — nicknamed Megatron by former teammate Roy Williams.
“We haven’t seen a lot of that this year, so it’s definitely something that we’re looking forward to,” Johnson said. “I think that there’ll be a lot of opportunities for us come Sunday.”
“He plays one on one, that’s the only thing that means to me,” Johnson said. “He’s a physical corner. That does separate him from a lot of corners in the league.”
The 5-11, 198-pound Revis doesn’t sound worried about matching up with Johnson.
“Why would I be concerned about somebody’s size?” Revis asked. “There are a number of guys that are big.”
