Football Links: Big-Time Matchup
Let's begin with a matchup that should have fans of both teams salivating. That would be Jermaine Kearse, who is coming off a career performance against Syracuse, and Nebraska's Prince Amukamara, who might be the top cornerback in the nation.
If you've seen the way Jets' DB Darrelle Revis has erased seemingly every Pro Bowl WR he's covered, you know the difference a shutdown corner can make in a game.
This was the feature in Thursday's Seattle Times, a matchup that Bob Condotta explores. Should be worth the price of admission.
"He's real aggressive," Kearse said of the 6-1, 205-pound Amukamara. "He's got good feet, he's a bigger-size corner compared to the corners we've been playing against the past two weeks. So it's going to be a real good challenge. I'm looking forward to it."
