Mark Sanchez threw a touchdown to Santonio Holmes, and the New York Jets’ sturdy defense forced three turnovers in a 27-11 win
It’s amazing what a difference three weeks can make. Three weeks ago, the Jets were stumbling through a three game losing streak, Now, all of a sudden, the Jets find themselves just one game behind the Bills and Patriots for first place in the AFC East.
When you tune in to Sunday’s Jets-Bills game, you may want to keep a close eye on the outside linebacker who stands up at the edge of Mike Pettine’s 3-4 front. That would be Aaron Maybin.
Last night’s game really was that bad, but the Jets are not about to throw it back as they put the brakes on a three game losing streak. “We needed a win in the worst way,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “We’re just happy that we found a way to get one.”
Think the Jets’ defense will be anything less than elite? Rex Ryan has issued a challenge to all naysayers. “Put your negative comments out there,” New York’s confident coach said Tuesday, “and we’ll see what happens at the end.”
The Jets tried to ignore all the criticism that was building outside their locker room. They were being called underachievers and phonies by some fans and media. The players couldn’t help but privately wonder if everyone was right.
Kermit The Frog once said, “It’s not easy being green.” That was the case for the Jets in Foxboro Monday night.
There is no team in football more exciting to watch right now than the Jets. There’s also no team out there living more on borrowed time.
New York Jets backup defensive back Marquice Cole will miss the team’s game at Cleveland because of a strained left hamstring.
The New York Jets are emerging from their bye refreshed and healthy. The Green Bay Packers appear to be anything but.
Wednesday was kind of a quiet day in Florham Park as the Jets continued preparations for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
Rex Ryan and his coaching staff huddled up before the bye-week break and drew up a game plan for an imposing opponent: the New York Jets. It was time for some self-scouting.
Cornerback Darrelle Revis is listed as questionable, while linebacker Calvin Pace is probable for the New York Jets’ game against the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.
Coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he wants both Darrelle Revis and Calvin Pace to travel with the team Friday rather than have them stay back at the facility to rehabilitate their injuries.
As imperfect as these Jets have been through five games, they’re still tied for the NFL lead with four wins and impressing their opponents on a weekly basis.
