The Jacksonville Jaguars number one pass defense goes up against the Kansas City Chiefs number one pass offense this weekend for the NFL’s marquee match up of the weekend. One of the matches that has been talked up is cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, but Ramsey doesn’t really seem to see that as a match up that will happen much, if at all.
#Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey wants you to know that this week's matchup vs Tyreek Hill is not a WR vs CB matchup.— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) October 4, 2018

Ramsey made it clear that he made the Pro Bowl and All-Pro as a corner, not a specialist like Hill. Hill has been an explosive weapon for the Chiefs through his first three seasons in the NFL, cracking the 1,000 yard receiving mark last season, and he is eager to face Ramsey who is considered by most as the best corner in the NFL.
“He think high of himself,” Hill told ESPN’s Adam Teicher. “He’s all right, I guess. I can’t wait to line up against him. I hope he presses me.”
Of course those comments got around to Jalen, who in turn said that if you watch film he presses every week and “if he wants smoke, it’ll get there” during his press conference.
Go ahead and start the popcorn, folks.
