Darrelle Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers open the season against rookie quarterback Geno Smith and the New York Jets from the Meadowlands.
Revis spent the entire off-season rehabbing his torn ACL, and is going to start for the Bucs in this one. The fan reaction to Revis will be something to watch for.
For the Jets, the circus has only continued. Rex Ryan’s influence on the organization is reportedly becoming less and less, and the pre-season was a little eventful for Rex.
There was the decision to play Sanchez in the 4th quarter against the Giants, only to have Sanchez injure his shoulder. He’ll be out at least a few weeks if not longer.
Remember this press conference?
Besides that, the Jets season will get off on the right track. Geno Smith will have a good game, Revis may or may not get a pick, but the difference in this one will be the Jets defense. Expect the D to make Josh Freeman’s life miserable today forcing at least 2 turnovers.
Final Score: Jets 24 Bucs 14
