Terrell Owens Adds Fuel to Thanksgiving Matchup With Jets, Calls Darelle Revis ‘Average’


The league's most overrated player is talking ? again.

This time around, Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owens is trying to spark a rivalry with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. When talking to Cincinnati reporters on Tuesday, TO called Revis a "one-year wonder" and a "media creation."

"Just an average corner to me," Owens said. "Everybody has assessed his abilities as far as what he did last year, shutdown corner, this and that. He did very well last year. But I think I'm looking forward to the challenge, just like he's looking forward to the challenge."

It seems TO is still frustrated following his visit to Revis Island last season. While playing for the Bills, Owens was held to just six catches for 44 yards against Revis and the Jets. Those numbers, according to TO, resulted from the Bills' shoddy offense, rather than Revis' tight coverage.

While Revis chose not to respond to the latest comments from TO, he did say earlier in the season that he has a "big chip on his shoulder," due to an Owens tweet after Revis pulled his hamstring covering Randy Moss in Week 2.

"I see Revis Island gettin' exposed," the tweet read. "Now that hammy is really hurting."

The latest comments are just added fuel to the fire for the Thanksgiving night matchup between the Bengals and the Jets. Since Revis announced he would be covering Owens, not Chad Ochocinco, it seems TO is trying to get in a few more jabs before the kickoff.

The Jets, however, are just looking to play their game. According to Revis' fellow corner, Antonio Cromartie, who will be covering Ochocinco, they won't be focusing on the Bengals' exuberant duo.

"It's not going to be personal, it's going to be business," Cromartie said. "I'm definitely looking forward to it. We don't care about them. We're just all about playing football and making sure we dominate our one-on-one battles."

Kickoff is at 8:20 p.m.
