Johnson says Bills have advantage vs. Jets' defense despite "junk" Jets throw up front

To Buffalo Bills' wide receiver Stevie Johnson, the "confusion" the New York Jets' defense throws at its opponents is simply just "junk."

The Jets' secondary is considered one of the best in the NFL, thanks mostly to (arguably) the best cornerback in football in Darrelle Revis, but Johnson thinks it's the front-seven's looks that makes the secondary look good.

"They try to use their line and linebackers to confuse you and get the ball out fast so the defensive backs don’t really have to cover for too long," he told the Buffalo media Wednesday.

"I think we’re a better team," Johnson said. "I think we’ll put up with all the junk that they try to throw at us and I think we’ll still have an advantage on their defensive backs and their entire defense."
