Amidst intrigue, Chiefs’ Darrelle Revis downplays showdown against Jets

Amidst intrigue, Chiefs’ Darrelle Revis downplays showdown against Jets
amidst-intrigue-chiefs’-darrelle-revis-downplays-showdown-against-jets

The Chiefs’ game against the New York Jets on Sunday will not be the first time Darrelle Revis has squared off against the team he’s most associated with.

 as a member of the Tampa Bay Bucs, Revis faced the Jets in 2013, and twice in 2014,Though he’s spent eight seasons of his 11-year career donning Jets green, as a member of the New England Patriots.

 he knows what to expect. And perhaps that’s why, when quizzed about the upcoming showdown against his old team,In that sense,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/derrick-johnson-jersey-authentic]Womens Derrick Johnson Jersey[/url], Revis promptly played it down.

 I don’t think it’s any extra motivation,” said Revis,“No, who signed with the Chiefs last week after he was released by the Jets following a disastrous 2016 season.

And when asked if he has anything to prove to his old team,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bennie-logan-jersey-authentic]Womens Bennie Logan Jersey[/url], Revis just shook his head.

” Revis said. “I had an awesome time there. We had our runs, we have a long history I’ve played there since 2007, our AFC Championships back-to-back that we missed out on. Great guys,“No, great teammates and coaches that I’ve been around there. Most of my legacy was with the Jets. I don’t think anything personally. I’m just on another team.”

 for instance,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bryan-witzmann-jersey-authentic]Womens Bryan Witzmann Jersey[/url], don’t buy it. In multiple interviews this week,Spoken like a true veteran. But those who know Revis best –– like former Jets coach Rex Ryan, Ryan made it clear he thinks Revis is out for revenge.

” Ryan told The New York Post. “I know the kind of competitor he is. Let’s face it, the Jets gave up on him,“I think he’ll be motivated big-time,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/terrance-mitchell-jersey-authentic]Womens Terrance Mitchell Jersey[/url], as did almost everybody in the league.”

 that Revis played too heavy last year, which contributed to his struggles. But Ryan also added that Revis’ confidence,Ryan also echoed what Revis said a week ago, physicality and technique weren’t to his typical standard.

 at least so far. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton has been pleased with what he’s seen from Revis, however,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/ramik-wilson-jersey-authentic]Womens Ramik Wilson Jersey[/url], who says he now weighs around 208 pounds,That doesn’t appear to be a problem in Kansas City, “way” down from a year ago.

” said Sutton, who also coached Revis in his prime in New York. “He knows the scout team receivers are supposed to be split at 2 yards outside the hash, or 2 yards outside the numbers on that route. He’ll go over and say run that route from that split. That’s his study and his preparation,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/demetrius-harris-jersey-authentic]Womens Demetrius Harris Jersey[/url],“He’s a detailed guy, and he’s a real smart football guy. I just think he does a tremendous job, preparation-wise.”

One thing that’s helped Revis get acclimated in Kansas City is that the terminology remains similar to the defenses he played in with the Jets.

” Revis said. “For the most part it’s getting out there with the guys, getting the chemistry. I haven’t been a part of the team the whole year, so for me it’s just been taking a step back,“I think yesterday was probably my best day where I felt the most comfortable with the play calls, learning everybody’s personality, learning Coach (Andy) Reid’s personality and the coaching staff. Just really soaking it all in. It’s an opportunity for me to get back playing great football.”

Chiefs inside linebacker Derrick Johnson can vouch for Revis’ acclimation process going well.

 he knows Sutton’s defense or half of it already because he was in it,” Johnson said “To get him out there and moving around, breaking on balls ... he was the best in the league at one time,“With him on the field, and trust me, he still has something in him. We can use him.”

 even Sutton will tell you the Chiefs can’t exactly be sure what to expect from Revis. Many players are intrigued to see what he can do. Will be closer to the prime,However, shutdown corner he was in New York? Or was his off year last season the new norm?

” Sutton said. “I think he said he wasn’t in the best condition of his life in that regard, so I guess that’s where we’re laying our hope,“Nobody probably knows for sure, is that was an exception.

“We obviously have to wait and see, but I think he’ll be okay out there.”

It shouldn’t take too long to see whether that will be the case. When asked if he expects the Jets to attack him, Revis said he’s mentally ready for that.

 at this point I wouldn’t put it past any team or any offensive coordinator,” Revis said. “Their game plan is what their game plan is,“You know what, and we have to focus on our game plan and execute as a defense.”

The Kansas City Chiefs have dropped five of their last six games, but head coach Andy Reid isn’t putting the blame entirely on quarterback Alex Smith.

According to the team’s official site, Reid said all of the offense must improve for the Chiefs to regain their effectiveness through the air.

Reid asserted that the struggles aren’t one thing, providing an example that receiver who breaks open might not actually be part of the progression.

“There’s a lot of things that go into it. The thing I can do is stand before you and tell you that this isn’t an Alex Smith thing, it’s all of us.”

Smith opened the season destroying everything in Kansas City’s path, accounting for 12 touchdowns while throwing zero interceptions as the Chiefs built a 5-0 record. He averaged at least seven yards per attempt in each of those five wins.

 though, Kansas City’s offense has slowed. Although Smith didn’t throw a pick until Week 9,During the last six games, he’s failed to reach that seven-yard average three times. The early season explosiveness is only showing up once in a while.

 the Chiefs averaged 156.2 rushing yards and lost a single turnover. Since then,Throughout the undefeated start, they’ve mustered just 76.3 yards per game and ceded possession a total of seven times.

Kansas City still holds a slim advantage in the AFC West. But the results of upcoming games against the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers will reveal if the Chiefs have properly addressed their issues enough to reach the playoffs.

 their second straight tough loss and third overall. Kansas City fell down to the Bills out of the gate 10-0,The Chiefs are coming off a 16-10 decision against the Buffalo Bills, fought back to within 13-10 early in the third quarter but could not complete the comeback.

 the Chiefs only managed 236 yards of offense but only allowed 268. Kansas City reached Buffalo territory,On the day, but an Alex Smith interception—the only turnover of the game—ended the threat.

 the Chiefs fell to the New York Giants,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bennie-logan-jersey-authentic]Authentic Bennie Logan Jersey[/url], also at MetLife Stadium,In Week 11, 12-9 in overtime.

 a 35-27 decision to the Carolina Panthers. New York trailed the Panthers 12-3 in the second quarter,The Jets are also coming off a second straight close loss, rallied to take a 20-18 lead early in the fourth but gave up touchdowns on a fumble return and a punt return to fall down. The Jets gave up a field goal with 20 seconds left to just miss the cover as six-point dogs.

 New York outgained Carolina 391-299. But a dropped pass in the end zone cost the Jets an early touchdown,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/bryan-witzmann-jersey-authentic]Authentic Bryan Witzmann Jersey[/url],On the afternoon, a failure from a 1st-and-goal at the Panthers 1-yard line cost them four more points and a roughing penalty negated a late defensive stop.

Look who's back, and just in time to spice up a showdown between slumping squads.

Darrelle Revis is expected to make his debut with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and it will fittingly come against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

" Revis said. "I think the reason for me returning is the fire I have,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/terrance-mitchell-jersey-authentic]Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey[/url],"It's just exciting to have this opportunity to return back to football, the fuel I have to continue to play this game at a high level. My role is to help win."

The seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback established himself as one of the best at his position during his first tenure with the Jets, which began in 2007 and ended with a bitter divorce in 2013 when he was traded to Tampa Bay. Revis spent the next season in New England before returning to New York in 2015.

But he wasn't nearly as dominant as his "Revis Island" days, and the Jets allowed him to leave after last season. Revis was out of work until signing a two-year deal with the Chiefs last week.

 a Patriots uniform," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said. "So,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/ramik-wilson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey[/url],"I've seen Revis in a Buccaneers uniform, it'll just be another game with Revis lining up on the other side."

Both the Chiefs (6-5) and Jets (4-7) have lost five of their past six. Kansas City is on a three-game skid, while New York has dropped its past two.

"We just know they're dangerous and they're a very good football team coming in here," Jets coach Todd Bowles said.

Andy Reid's squad started the season a blistering 5-0, with some thinking the Chiefs could make a run at an AFC title. The recent slump has tempered those expectations outside the facility.

 I think you know this," Reid said. "I think there's an urgency. We want to do better than what we're doing. Nobody,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/demetrius-harris-jersey-authentic]Authentic Demetrius Harris Jersey[/url], you're in this business,"I don't think they're pressing, nobody wants to lose. That's not why they're in this business. So everybody's trying to do their best to win the game. I see that. We've just got to do a little better.

 that's my responsibility,"Again, so it starts there and everybody has a piece of it."

The Jets were one of the NFL's early season surprises after many thought they'd struggle to win just a couple of games.

But New York has blown fourth-quarter leads in three of their past four losses,[url=http://www.chiefsfootballauthentic.com/mitchell-schwartz-jersey-authentic]Authentic Mitchell Schwartz Jersey[/url], and that's something they're focused on changing moving forward.

"We have to finish," quarterback Josh McCown said. "We have to play better in the fourth quarter and there has to be a hyper-focus when we change sides. We have to be at our best."

Here are some other things to know about the Chiefs-Jets matchup:

Alex Smith has struggled during the Chiefs' skid, and many fans want the quarterback who was mentioned as an MVP candidate during their undefeated start to be benched in favor of first-round pick Patrick Mahomes II.

But Smith is still second to Tom Brady in passer rating this season, and his 19-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio is tied for third-best in the league.

 Reid replied: "Alex is my guy,Asked whether a change is possible, yeah."

Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is the seventh player in franchise history with a touchdown catch in five straight games, and just the fifth to do it in the same season.

 2003), 2015), Brandon Marshall (six,He joins Santana Moss (seven, Bake Turner (six, 1964) and Don Maynard (five, 1963) to accomplish the feat. Anderson also has an NFL-leading six TD receptions of 20 yards or longer.

" Anderson said, "him having trust in me,"That's just trusting Josh, putting it up and letting me make a play."

The Chiefs ran 26 plays inside of 10 yards in the passing game last week against Buffalo, a big reason fans spent most of the game booing.

 forcing quick throws,Reid blamed that on the Bills bringing extra pressure, but he acknowledged the need to stretch the field more.

"Depends on what the defense is doing," Reid said. "We probably could. That's part of it."

Despite some fans and media calling for the Jets to give extended looks to Bryce Petty and/or Christian Hackenberg, Bowles is sticking with McCown as his starting quarterback.

 who is 38 and signed for only this season,McCown, has thrown a career-best 17 TD passes. Bowles says he has not yet considered a scenario in which he would bench the veteran.

"Josh is my starting quarterback," Bowles said.

There won't be many warm, fuzzy feelings by Jets players and coaches when they take on the Chiefs. Not after what happened the previous time the teams played.

New York lost 24-3 at Kansas City, with then-quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick tossing six interceptions to account for the bulk of the Jets' eight total turnovers.

The game led to a locker room dispute between wide receiver Brandon Marshall and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson that Revis said after the season "just left a dark cloud over our head" as the Jets skidded to a 5-11 mark.
