Cro Cromartie on his match-up with Andre Johnson Dan Leberfeld

One match-up that will be fun to watch in the Jets’ Monday night game with Houston, will be New York CB Antonio Cromartie against Texans WR Andre Johnson.

“He’s one of the best receivers in the game,” Cromartie said. “Throughout his whole 10-year career, I think he’s averaged 90, 91, 92 yards a game, every single game. He’s a big, physical receiver that can get in and out of his breaks, (and can position his body to make the catch). He knows how to use his body very well. The biggest thing for me is just going in and playing my game, trying to be physical and just do the things I need to do.

“Playing against bigger receivers, it matches up very well for me. I can use my length and things like that. I’m really looking forward to it. This is my third time playing the Texans in my career and I’ve never faced up against Andre. This is my first time facing him, so I’m definitely looking forward to it.”
