Revis to cover Welker some too?

When the New England Patriots and New York Jets meet Sunday, the biggest matchup to watch will be Darrelle Revis and Randy Moss. That's because they're they've been talking it up and they're a pair of elite players.

However, Revis might not be shadowing the unappreciated future Hall of Famer the entire time -- Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Revis will also cover Wes Welker, in order to "take away what the Jets perceive to be the Patriots No. 1 offensive threat."

Two things; first, this is a smart move by the Jets. Moss is really, really good, but so is Welker, and if they can successfully use Revis to stop Welker and Tom Brady from moving the chains, it'll be a lot harder for New England to take shots to Moss.

That being said, the real gamble here is leaving either Kyle Wilson or Antonio Cromartie alone on Moss -- if Brady and Co. figure out the coverage and adjust so they're taking shots at Moss when he's not on Revis Island, you'd have to think they stand a better chance of scoring some long TDs.

(Unless, that is, Revis is still not quite in full season shape and dealing with a hamstring . Then this is just "very convenient.")

And of course the notion that "Welker is better than Moss" coming from the Jets' locker room shouldn't motivate Moss to get off said island at all either.
