Sammy Watkins booking his flight for Revis Island

A healthy Buffalo Bills team finally flexed their muscles on offense in Sunday's 33-17 wipeout of the Dolphins.

Tyrod Taylor used his mobility to lash Miami's tumbling defense, but he also set the table for a career afternoon by second-year pass-catcher Sammy Watkins.

Piling up 168 yards and a score off eight grabs, Watkins accounted for 92.8 percent of Buffalo's real estate through the air, re-establishing last year's first-round pick as the clear go-to guy in Greg Roman's air attack.

Can Watkins keep it cooking on Revis Island?

"Most definitely. I'm pretty sure he'll be following me around. I look forward to it," Watkins said of Thursday night's showdown with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, per Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News. "As a receiver who wants to be noticed as a top receiver, you definitely want to go against those type of guys."

Buffalo has gotten healthy just in time to turn Week 10's edition of Thursday Night Football (airing exclusively on NFL Network) into a juicy divisional grudge match between Rex Ryan's Bills and the Jets squad he held close to his heart for six up-and-down seasons.

It must eat at Ryan to see Revis back in New York, but Rex has a shot to earn the last laugh if Gang Green's otherwise underwhelming secondary doesn't hold down the fort two evenings from now.
