Revis called Calvin Johnson the best WR in the game, but vows to play him physical

This week, the Bucs’ cornerback Darrelle Revis plans to use contact to slow Megatron, whom Revis called “the best” receiver in the game.

“My thought was always just to be physical with (big receivers),” Revis said, per the Buccaneers’ official website. “They’re big guys. I feel no receiver wants to get jammed or pressed at the line, so just be physical with those guys and match what they bring to the table.”

The last time Revis and Johnson matched up in 2010, the cornerback played for the New York Jets. Revis held Megatron to just one catch for 13 yards that day.

The only bad thing is Nate Burleson ate that game and had over a 100 yards.  Burleson is back this week, so while I think the Bucs will get the win, I don’t know how big of a factor Megatron will be.
