Darrelle Revis the queen piece in secondary

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Much was said after the New England Patriots' 34-9 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Gillette Stadium, but it was hard to find a more decisive statement than what was delivered by cornerback Darrelle Revis. "This is probably the best group of guys I've been around, secondary-wise, where everyone is just talented," he said. "We can do so many versatile things in our defense." Revis, now in his eighth NFL season, is the centerpiece of it all, with Sunday's victory another reminder of this.

Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner shut down Lions’ top wideouts; Golden Tate says game was ‘embarrassing’

FOXBORO — These guys are good. Once again the Patriots secondary, particularly Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, rose to the occasion against a proven Detroit Lions receiving core, and led the way in the Patriots’ 34-9, runaway win Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots secondary certainly mixed things up against star wide receivers Calvin Johnson […]

Halftime: Patriots jump out to 24-6 lead over Lions

The Patriots are leading the Lions 24-6 at halftime. The New England Patriots have deployed an aerial attack against the Detroit Lions, and lead them 24-6 at halftime in their week twelve match-up. The Patriots have relied on the arm of Tom Brady, having only run the ball six times in the first half. Brady found Tim Wright for two touchdowns and LeGarrette Blount had a score of his own. Defensively, the Patriots are doing a good job getting pressure on Matthew Stafford and have effectively shut down Calvin Johnson with a mixture of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner in coverage. This is an...

Quick-hit thoughts around NFL, Patriots

Quick-hit thoughts around the NFL and with the Patriots: 1. One topic that comes up most often when meeting with Patriots followers, such as last week’s tweet-up in Indianapolis, is the future of cornerback Darrelle Revis. Does he like it in New England? Would he be interested in re-signing in 2015? I’ve been impressed with Revis on multiple levels -- his play, lack of diva-ness, overall buy-in and how he’s compartmentalized the here-and-now (winning games) from the future business side (maximizing dollars).

W2W4: Patriots' key areas vs. Lions

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots host the Detroit Lions on Sunday, and here are some of the key areas to watch: How defensive backs match up: Cornerback Darrelle Revis has matched up against Lions receiver Calvin Johnson twice before and had success, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will happen again this week. Momentum seemed to be building late in the week for the possibility that Revis might actually see more time across from Golden Tate, who leads the Lions with 68 catches.

Big Vince Wilfork, bigger impact

Big Vince Wilfork, bigger impact

FOXBORO — Vince Wilfork’s value to the Patriots defense quite literally cannot always be defined.“I don’t know how to put that into words,” cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “I really don’t.”Wilfork’s importance stretches far beyond his stat sheet and well into the production of others. That notion was no more evident than a third-quarter play Sunday against the Colts when he took on a double team, which allowed linebacker Jamie Collins a free lane into the backfield to strip the ball from running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

The Roller Coaster Week of Jonas Gray

The Patriots Jonas Gray is in the midst of one of the weirdest weeks in recent memory. Running back Jonas Gray was sent home today because he overslept (per ProJo's Mark Daniels and ESPN's Mike Reiss). Like Darrelle Revis earlier in the year, Bill Belichick will send anyone home who comes in late and it's up to the player to determine how they bounce back. Revis came in to apologize and the team moved forward. He didn't miss any game time. How will Gray react? On Saturday, Patriots owner Bob Kraft pulled Gray aside and told him that he "was going to have a big week" against the Colts. On...

Broncos' Chris Harris Jr. is an unsung hero deserving of the Pro Bowl

Our question of the week asks us who is the unsung hero of the Denver Broncos. When you're GMC Professional Grade, you perform at a high level day in and day out, whether you're noticed or not. As we enter the Fourth Quarter of the season, who is your team's unsung hero? We've been singing the praises of this "unsung" hero for years now, but somehow, Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. still falls through the cracks of national media attention. Just look at the latest Pro Bowl voting update - Harris doesn't crack the Top 10 of vote-getters. 1. Darrelle Revis, New England...

Darrelle Revis thinks Calvin Johnson is ‘a man amongst boys out there’

FOXBORO — It will be strength against strength Sunday when Darrelle Revis and the Patriots secondary square off against the most fearsome receiver in the NFL, Calvin Johnson. While it’s possible Revis won’t spend the entire game playing “Megatron” straight up, he will still likely have to know where he is most of the time. […]

Darrelle Revis set for 3rd Megatron meeting

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis has faced Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson twice before, and on Wednesday, he called him a “man among boys.” Revis added that Johnson is like a video-game creation with his size (6-foot-5, 236 pounds) and speed (4.3 in the 40-yard dash). A possible Revis vs. Johnson matchup is a significant part of what makes Sunday’s Patriots-Lions game compelling, and if one looks at their prior two meetings, it could be viewed as a draw.

Bill Belichick, Matt Patricia work matchup magic with deep DBs

When the Patriots scooped up Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner during the offseason, it was hard not to think about Bill Belichick, and how much fun he was going to have with his secondary.All of the things the coach could suddenly do, all of the receivers and tight ends he could now make miserable, there seemed no offense he couldn’t derail given what he had at his disposal.We could only imagine the tricks Belichick would have up his sleeve. The way it’s played out, we really had no idea.

Arrington spends a comfy night at Hilton

Arrington spends a comfy night at Hilton

FOXBORO — Most people assumed Darrelle Revis would match up with Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton in Sunday night’s game.Most people also would have assumed that if Kyle Arrington instead drew that assignment, the advantage would fall heavily in Hilton’s favor.Most people were wrong on both counts.Not only did Arrington find himself tracking Hilton in one-on-one coverage for much of the Patriots’ 42-20 win, he more than held his own against one of the league’s most dangerous receivers.
