Josh Gordon has turned his season and possibly his reputation around after being suspended for the first few games for repeated substance abuse violations.
Gordon has 200 yards in two straight games for the Browns, and is coming off a team-record 261 receiving yards and he needs 41 yards to set the franchise’s single-season record.
The brash wide receivers seems pretty confident that he’ll be able to do despite likely being covered by the Patriots all pro cornerback Aqib Talib on Sunday.
Gordon told the Plain Dealer that he’s sure he’ll make more plays than Talib on Sunday.
“I’m pretty sure he’ll make some plays, but I’m definitely going to make more plays,” Gordon said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “NFL cornerback is a hard position to play, and he’s doing a great job right now for that defense. He’s a real physical, scrappy player. But I’m going to come out there and do the same, go out there and make plays myself and try to make sure that nobody can stop me.”
Talib is nothing like the guys on the Jaguars, and this should be a pretty entertaining matchup.
