Grab your popcorn, it should be a good one.

Calvin Johnson, the best wide receiver in football, and Darrelle Revis, maybe the best cornerback, will square off Sunday for the second time in their NFL careers when the Lions host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Ford Field.

Johnson and Revis played once before, in 2010, when Johnson finished with one catch for 13 yards and the Lions squandered a late-game lead against Revis’ New York Jets after Matthew Stafford suffered a fourth-quarter shoulder injury.

Revis was matched one-on-one against Johnson most of that game, and Lions’ quarterbacks targeted their No. 1 receiver only four times.

Asked on a conference call with Detroit reporters Wednesday if he felt like he won that battle, Revis said, “One catch for 13 yards. I mean, what do you think?

“I’m not worried about even that stat or trying to better that stat. That was years ago, and we’ll see. I got a lot of respect for Calvin and what he’s been doing in the league, and I’m sure he has a lot of respect for me as well. I don’t know what the outcome will be Sunday. I’m going to prepare the best way I can and be prepared for the game.”

Nearly 14 months after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, Revis again is looking like one of the league’s top cover men.

Tampa coach Greg Schiano said the Buccaneers used Revis in zone coverage more early in the season when he was still finding his legs — Revis did not play a snap in the exhibition season — and now that Revis has built up stamina, Schiano said he’s “back to being the guy that we remember.”

“Is he all the way back? Probably not,” Schiano said. “But he’s getting real close, and he’s just a great guy to have on our football team and a great guy to coach.”

Johnson spoke glowingly of Revis in a conference call with Tampa reporters Wednesday, praising the ball skills that have produced two interceptions this year and 21 for Revis’ career.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz said he sees the same sticky coverage ability that earned Revis the nickname “Revis Island,” too.

“When you watch him on film, he doesn’t look like he’s dragging his leg or hampered in any way (by the injury),” Schwartz said. “He’s a good player. He’s got great eyes for the football. He can play zone, he can play man, he can play press, he can play off. He’s a good tackler. He’s one of the best corners in the NFL, and Calvin’s one of the best wide receivers, if not the best wide receiver. That’s going to be a key matchup in this game.”
