For the most part, outspoken New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis steered clear of saying anything too inflammatory in an interview during last night’s Monday Night Football telecast (video above), but he did make a prediction for next Monday night’s clash between the Jets and New England Patriots when asked.
“I gotta represent for the New York Jets. We’re going to win. I feel that,” Revis said. “We feel confident. We know its going to be a tough game. We’re just looking to try to be 10-2.”
Revis, who famously dubbed former Patriots receiver Randy Moss a slouch last offseason, steered clear of giving that designation to any current Patriots when asked last night.
“There are no slouches on the Patriots team,” Revis said with a laugh. “I do have a lot of respect for them. I like how they bring it every time we play them. You get nothing less than the A-plus game from those guys. ... I know what type of game this is going to be. It’s going to be lights, camera, action from both teams on Monday night.”
With a victory at Gillette Stadium on Monday night, Revis and the Jets would sweep the season series from the Patriots and have the inside track to the AFC East title and a first-round playoff bye.
“This would be a big relief, beating them twice in one year,” Revis said. “I don’t remember the last time we did it. Since we’ve been here we haven’t, so it would be a joy for me and my teammates too.”
