Same Old Jets, No More!
This Jets team is not the “same old Jets” because they did yesterday what good teams are suppose to do, beat the bad teams on your schedule. If the Jets were the “same old Jets”, they would have overlooked this game and lost to one of the worst teams in the NFL. The Jets beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon 38-14. The Jets dominated on offense by having 444 total yards, 25 first downs, and were 7-15 on third downs. The “Sanchise” again was looking like a franchise quarterback, completing 14 of 24 passes for 161 yards and three touchdowns. Over his last three games, Sanchez has 8 TD and 0 INT. It was good to see Jerricho Cotchery get involved in this offense by catching 3 passes for 26 yards.
Hopefully, people listened to me when I said they should pick up Dustin Keller in their fantasy league. He had 4 receptions for 28 yards and two touchdowns. Braylon Edwards looks more focus since his DWI arrest and caught a wide open touchdown pass from Sanchez. This was the best combined running attack game by LT and Greene. They combined for a total of 273 rushing yards, with LT having 19 rushes for 133 yards and two touchdowns, while Greene had 22 rushes for 117 yards. It was essential to see Greene have his first big game of the year. We love the way LT is playing, but we can’t forget how key Greene is to this offense. The offense line had there best game of the year, especially Matt Slauson. It seems like every week, the offense line is gaining more continuity. We even saw a Joe McKnight sighting in the fourth quarter, so maybe he can be a piece to this offense. With Holmes comes back next Monday night, this Jets offense will only get better!
The Jets defense played well against Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buffalo Bills. The Jets defense coming into the game allowed the most third down conversions so far this year, but on Sunday, the “D” did not let the Bills complete a third down. Lee Evans, who usually kills the Jets, was a no show as Cromartie shut him down. Jet fans were concerned about C.J. Spiller, but he was also a no show. The one scare from the defensive perspective was seeing Shaun Ellis getting hurt, but he is expected to be fine. It will take Kyle Wilson sometime to improve on his skills because he continues to struggle and looks lost sometimes. Nick Folk, you can’t miss easy field goals! I still don’t trust this guy if the Jets need a big kick! The Jets are flying high right now, and as a Jet fan, you have to put a big smile on your face!
