Darrelle Revis is used to seeing green on his jersey. He isn’t used to seeing it on the back of his opponent’s.
But that’s what the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback saw all afternoon Sunday, never more prominently than when Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green burned Revis and the New York secondary for a 54-yard touchdown during Cincinnati’s 23-22 win at MetLife Stadium.
That was just a microcosm of the day for Green, who finished with a whopping 12 catches for 180 yards and that touchdown. But it wasn’t just one blown coverage by Revis, who was made to look silly all day.
Despite Revis’ blunders, the Jets still nearly pulled off the win. New York quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception during the game’s closing seconds to seal the loss, though.
