Calvin Johnson put up a goose egg in the second half of the Detroit Lions' Week 11 loss. Now the mega-wide receiver is tasked with going head to head with Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis on Sunday.
Revis is still inching closer to 100 percent after offseason ACL surgery. In recent weeks, we've seen him in more press coverage, a scheme that makes him the best cover corner in the NFL.
This week, the Bucs defender 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."
That stat is relevant Sunday because Burleson was a full participant in practice Thursday for the first time since his pizza-induced car accident resulted in a broken arm.
The Lions have been a one-trick pony at wide receiver with Burleson out the past seven weeks -- but that didn't stop Mr. Chris Wesseling from putting Johnson & Associates on his list of top wide receiver duos.
