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.

The Jets enter Sunday’s game relatively healthy. Will Gang Green be able to knock the Dolphins out of the playoff picture?

The fading Jets are now 6-8 after their 30-20 loss to the Panthers. Their playoff hopes are on life support.
Chris Ivory is establishing a reputation for being one of the most physical players in the NFL. From dragging players to powering through tackle attempts, Ivory is one tough guy to bring down.
The New York Jets set a season high for points and snapped a three-game skid with a 37-27 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Rookie quarterback Geno Smith has struggled mightily lately, having completed 25 passes in his past three games. That’s 25 total — eight against New Orleans, eight at Buffalo and nine against Baltimore.
Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie did not practice because of an ailing hip. He could be a game-time decision Sunday against the Dolphins.
“We embrace the challenges, this team,” tight end Konrad Reuland said. “We truly believe we can beat any team we line up against.”
The Jets graduated Sunday. They beat a good Saints team, led by a good quarterback in Drew Brees, 26-20, through timely offense and fantastic defense.
New York’s running game and physical defense spearheaded a surprise win over New Orleans.
