moss-revis.jpgThe New York Jets have just released their final injury report of the week in advance of their Monday Night showcase with the Minnesota Vikings and cornerback Darelle Revis is listed as "probable" for the game - which technically means there's only a 25 percent chance he won't play.

If Revis, who hurt a hamstring late in the first half of the Patriots' loss against the Jets in Week 2 (coincidentally, he left the game after Moss' insane one-handed grab against him), does suit up on Monday, he will be on the field once again with Moss.

This week, Revis claimed Moss "put his foot on the brake" during the second half of the Jets' win over New England - a dubious statement given Revis was not on the field, but Antonio Cromartie, who did cover Moss in the second half, backed up his teammate's assertion.

In the offseason, Revis called Moss a "slouch."

According to ESPNNewYork.com, Moss told the Vikings' in-house station that Revis will give him respect "sooner or later." While Revis has made more comments about Moss than vice-versa, it was Moss who refused to acknowledge Revis' play against him last year, when the corner held him to just nine catches for 58 yards and a touchdown in two meetings.

As Tully Banta-Cain noted yesterday, Moss can help the Patriots by helping the Vikings to a win - a New York loss will elevate New England to the top of the AFC East standings.
