Week 11 Position Battle #3: Stevie Johnson Versus Sean Smith
In the final position battle for week 11 between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins, this time it’s about being flashy between Bills’ wide receiver Stevie Johnson and Dolphins’ cornerback, Sean Smith.
This one on one match-up is about as even as can be between anything measured physically as they are practically identical in size, speed, age, et cetera.
Johnson has emerged as the best receiving threat the Bills have had in a while. In the last two years, he had back to back 1000+ yard receiving seasons; it was a first in franchise history which is impressive considering the names of players whom have been receivers for the Bills. So far this season, Johnson has 41 catches for 502 yards and four touchdown receptions, so having a third straight 1000 yard year isn’t too far-fetched for this guy.
Smith is cornerback with rare size and strength that provides a challenge for other teams to have their quarterback throw elsewhere in order to find a more favorable match-up. In his career, Smith has had only five interceptions; however he was never the #1 cornerback until this year after Vontae Davis was traded to the Indianapolis Colts.
All and all it should be a very fun match-up between these two guys.
Let’s go to the tale of the tape between Stevie Johnson and Sean Smith:
