It has not been a great start to the season for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. The seven-time Pro Bowler was eaten alive in Week 1 by Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who finished with 12 catches for 180 yards and a touchdown.
That performance can at least be explained by the fact that Green is a fellow All-Pro. How Revis can allow little-known Bills wideout Marquise Goodwin get by him to catch an 84-yard bomb, on a 3rd-and-12 no less, is a lot harder to excuse.

A fourth-year veteran, Goodwin entered Thursday night with all of 20 catches for his career, and only three of those coming since his rookie year. The 84-yard score is also more yards than he finished with in the past two seasons combined.
Then again, Goodwin was a third-round draft pick out of Texas, largely due to his sub-4.3 speed. In fact, they might want to try to get him matched up again on the 31-year-old Revis before this game is over.
And a little Bills history was made on the play, as this goes down as the longest completion at home in franchise history. This is a play Revis may want to forget, and if an adjustment isn’t soon made, maybe a season.
