AFC East still faces Darrelle Revis in 2013
By James Walker
For Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills fans thinking they can breathe easy now that Darrelle Revis has left the AFC East, do not get too comfortable just yet.
It turns out the NFC South matches up with the AFC East this season. That means Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face the Dolphins, Patriots, Bills and Jets in 2013.
The Revis AFC East reunion tour starts in Week 1 against the Jets at MetLife Stadium. He also plays the Patriots in Week 3, the Dolphins in Week 10 and the Bills in Week 14. Revis has been a thorn in the side of opposing AFC East teams, and that's a trend he hopes to continue for one more season.
But after 2013, the Jets won't have to see Revis in the regular season for three more years. All four AFC East teams -- and especially the Jets -- should be very happy about that.
