Attention visitors: Revis Island is open for business again.

After missing all of training camp because of a contract holdout, CB Darrelle Revis started off the season slowly from not being in proper playing shape and was famously burned by then-Patriots WR Randy Moss on a long one-handed TD grab in Week Two. A hamstring injury forced Revis to miss two full games and parts of others before the Jets' Week Seven bye. But the All-Pro is now 100 percent healthy and back in elite form. Since the off week, Revis has held Greg Jennings, Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson and Terrell Owens to a combined nine catches for 74 yards, well below the norm for the group of elite wide receivers.

With Revis returning to full strength, the team's defense can return to doing what Rex Ryan units pride themselves on — pressuring the quarterback. Against the Bengals on Thanksgiving night, the Jets recorded three sacks, including a safety, and hit Carson Palmer six times; they also picked him off twice.
