The New York Jets lost a winnable game to the tune of 23-22 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cornerback Darrelle Revis was embarrassed by wide receiver A.J. Green and Twitter showed no mercy.

Fans of the New York Jets immediately took to Twitter to chime in their displeasures with their season opener loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Of course one of the biggest reasons why was the complete havoc caused by Bengals’ wide receiver A.J. Green against cornerback Darrelle Revis that by all accounts, embarrassed him beyond belief.

Looking at all the tweets that spawned from #DarrelleRevis, it’s easy to see why fans had plenty to talk about. Take a look at this play below to see what spurned such anger:

Deeeeeeeeeeep TD to @AJGreen_18.

… And he beat @revis24 to do it. #CINvsNYJ https://t.co/na8NaZKrn5

All throughout the week, the Jets said that Revis would undoubtedly get some safety help in covering Green who is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL. Unfortunately, Green made Revis into an example and proved that perhaps age is getting the best of him in the grand scheme of things.

Against the Jets, Green totaled 180 receiving yards, 12 receptions, and a touchdown. That 54-yard play against Revis was a highlight that will be shown all week long at the expense of Revis.

Overall, even though it’s just one game, this is yet another instance of Revis not playing up to par when it comes to his assignments. While it was against an incredible receiving target in Green, the writing is on the wall that Revis simply isn’t the same player he used to be.
