The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, coming off one of the worst games of his illustrious career, insisted Tuesday he wont flinch in the face of unprecedented criticism.Im very confident, he said. Ive been through the trenches before.But this is an unusual situation for Revis, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection who is being picked apart by analysts and fans.In the Jets 23-22 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Revis struggled against star receiver A.J. Green, who finished with 12 catches for 180 yards and a touchdown. Unofficially, eight receptions came against Revis, who covered him for most of the game.Most of the plays, I was right there, Revis said. On the busted coverage [for a 54-yard touchdown], Im supposed to get help. But at the same time, it is what it is. Like I said, I can take a punch.Theyre going to catch balls. Its not like I never got a ball caught on me. In that instance, its just small technique things. Theres no game you come out of playing a perfect game. As easy as some people make it look it seem, it is what it is. You bounce back. Thats why we play week to week.From 2009 to 2014, Revis was generally regarded as the NFLs top cornerback. He struggled in a couple of games last season, inviting criticism, but it was later revealed that he played with a torn tendon in his wrist that required offseason surgery.Revis, who is making $17 million tthis season, set the bar so high that it becomes news whenever the 31-year-old gets beat for a big play. Wholesale Bills Jerseys Online. Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan, who coached Revis from 2009 to 2012, laughed when asked if Revis has slipped.If he has, we know hes coming from the mountain top, said Ryan, whose team faces the Jets on Thursday night. I dont know how far that is. I mean, I think hes a hell of a football player still. Like I said, if hes coming down, hes coming down from the very, very top.Many of the receptions by Green were short gains on which Revis gave significant cushion. Coach Todd Bowles said Revis has the freedom to decide on his own whether he wants to play bump-and-run or off coverage.Bowles said Revis has earned that right.Not everyone [has it], Bowles said. He does.Revis faces another difficult challenge this week in Sammy Watkins, assuming the Bills receiver plays with a sore foot. In the season finale, Watkins torched the Jets for 136 yards on 11 catches, many of them on plays in which he exploited soft coverage by Revis. In the earlier meeting, Revis dominated Watkins, holding him to three catches for 14 yards.Revis shrugged off the notion that he will enter Thursday night with a chip on his shoulder.No, Im fine, he said. Its a long season. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free ShippingCheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
