Darrelle Revis could see plenty of Hakeem Nicks, the Giants' best wide receiver, on Saturday. Nicks is coming off a game in which he dropped a sure-handed touchdown pass after he lost it in the sun early in the first quarter during the Giants' 23-10 loss to the Redskins last Sunday.
Nicks is looking to redeem himself, but he is not getting caught up in the hype of a potential one-on-one matchup with Revis.
Victor Cruz, though, is looking forward to seeing those two go at it.
"Not only is [Revis] good athletically, but he watched a lot of film," Cruz said. "He knows the routes that we like to do on certain downs and distances and he picks up on tendencies. We have to be disciplined. We can't show any of our stuff and make sure we get to the right depths and using the right technique against them."
"It is going to be a good one," Cruz said of Revis against Nicks. "I think it is going to be a lot of back and forth, both guys making plays, both guys are very talented. Whoever makes that last play to win the game will be the victor."
Here's how the last few true WR1s have fared against the Jets and Revis: Dwayne Bowe (6-69), Santana Moss (5-42), Steve Johnson (8-75-1, 3-84), Vincent Jackson (1-15) and Brandon Marshall (6-109).
