With Mayo and Wilfork out the Jets should look to establish the running game early and often.
Forget the Atlanta and Pittsburgh games; the Jets are beginning a gauntlet against the NFL’s heavy hitters. And how they do will determine if the play meaningful games in December,
The loss could have been a costly one for New York, which saw running backs Bilal Powell (shoulder) and Mike Goodson (left knee), wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and cornerback Kyle Wilson (head) all leave with injuries.
