Nobody's getting over on Revis yet
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has taken the early lead in his marquee battle with New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss.
Four plays after Moss outmuscled him for a 4-yard first-down reception, Revis made a splendid catch for an interception late in the first quarter.
Tom Brady tried Moss deep down the right sideline. Revis had perfect coverage and twisted to snag the pass over Moss' outstretched hand.
Revis has been showing why he was sent to the Pro Bowl in his second NFL season. He essentially shut down Houston Texans star Andre Johnson in last week's season-opening victory. He limited Johnson to four catches and 35 yards.
