Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell helped power a rushing attack that gained 212 yards last Sunday — and could be a sneak peek at what the Jets’ opponents might have to deal with on a weekly basis.
The formula for the New York Jets to beat the Green Bay Packers is quite obvious: establish the power running game on offense and apply consistent pressure on defense.
Chris Ivory burst through a few tackle attempts for a 71-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter, and the New York Jets’ defense clamped down on Oakland rookie quarterback Derek Carr in a 19-14 victory Sunday.
Chris Johnson is going to be asked to do a lot for the Jets this season. So far, he’s shown that age is just a number and he’s capable of being what he once was.
Is the idea to revamp “ground and pound” or for the Jets to strive for balance on offense? We will find out soon enough.
Despite the talk of competition, it seems this is Geno’s job to lose. Michael Vick was listed as the backup, and third-stringer Matt Simms had the edge over rookie Tajh Boyd.
The Jets are stacked at running back. It’s the order of things that will need some time to figure out.
The way the Jets see it, the sky is still the limit for Chris Johnson, regardless of his age and the fact that so many people think he’s lost a step.
Ground-and-Pound? Thunder-and-Lightning? Johnson-and-Ivory? It doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s a backfield — a real, live, legitimate, threatening backfield.
Chris Johnson is looking to quickly prove his critics wrong. The Jets signed the former Titans running back Wednesday, a little over a week after he was officially released by Tennessee.
The free-agent running back attended the Knicks-Nets basketball game in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, and told reporters that he had a productive visit with Gang Green.
Gang Green finished the season 8-8. With some additions can New York contend in 2014?
The Jets enter Sunday’s game relatively healthy. Will Gang Green be able to knock the Dolphins out of the playoff picture?
Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes to David Nelson and ran in another score as the New York Jets topped the Cleveland Browns 24-13 on Sunday in their home finale.
The fading Jets are now 6-8 after their 30-20 loss to the Panthers. Their playoff hopes are on life support.
