BOSTON (CBS) – Michael Felger is all in on the Patriots defense in 2014 for one reason and one reason only: Darrelle Revis.

Felger thinks with Revis, and to a lesser degree Brandon Browner, that the Patriots will be a top five team in that category, and he’s so confident in his prediction that he’s even made a friendly wager with CSNNE colleague Bob Neumeier.

Tony Massarotti is still concerned about the safety spot, but Felger says you can easily hide that problem with a cornerback of Revis’ caliber.
