When I wide receiver sees the New York Jets on the schedule, it's likely a game he circles — for better or worse. That's the case for Sammy Watkins, who's slated to pay Revis Island a visit on Thursday night.

It didn't go so well for him a year ago, when he caught just five passes for 84 yards combined in two contests, but he's looking forward to the challenge of taking on Revis this week.

“I'm pretty sure he'll be following me around. I look forward to it,” Watkins said via Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News. “As a receiver who wants to be noticed as a top receiver, you definitely want to go against those type of guys.”

Watkins is coming off of the best game of his young career and will attempt to continue with another strong outing against the Jets. It'll be tougher, of course, with Darrelle Revis on the other side, but there's no lack of confidence in Watkins.
