Despite an extra day to prepare and more practice time that their opponent the New York Jets laid yet another egg of a performance in losing to the division rival Bills in Detroit 38-3. Their was nothing really redeeming that can be taken away from this game for the team. The Jets will be only the fourth NFL team to play consecutive Monday night games next week versus the Miami Dolphins.

First Quarter:

The Jets received the opening kick-off and on third down Michael Vick's pass to Percy Harvin went incomplete, but it was almost picked off, if had not been for Harvin coming back to the ball to knock it down. The Bills would then take the Jets punt and drive down the field to score on a pass from Orton to Woods. The teams would trade punts and Jeremy Kerley would set the Jets up with a nice return on his to inside the Bills 40 yard line. On third and one from the 28 yard line John Conner ran for 13 yards down to the 15. Two plays later Chris Johnson moved them down to the eight yard line. The Jets were aided by a neutral zone infraction penalty to make it first and goal at the four yard line. Michael Vick was sacked by Mario Williams at the 10 yard line. They netted one yard on the next two plays and then Nick Folk would make the chip shot 27 yard field goal.

Who Could the New York Jets Take in the 2015 Draft?

November 13th, 2014 at 5:32 PM
By Andrew Goldstein

Folks, the season is just about over for the Jets. Sure, their 20-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday was impressive, but that victory still leaves the Jets at 2-8, which is currently good for dead last in the AFC East and a spot in the bottom five of the NFL. Even if the Jets were to win out, they would end the season at 8-8, which would probably leave them a good two wins out of the last Wild Card spot in a much-improved AFC. Rex Ryan is almost certainly going to be fired at year's end, there's still nothing resembling a permanent solution at quarterback, and the first “Fire John Idzik” billboards have just gone up in the vicinity of MetLife Stadium.

Things are just peachy besides that, though.

New York Jets Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

November 12th, 2014 at 12:03 PM
By Mario Scipioni

The cake that is the New York Jets' victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday has its icing. Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

This award comes as no surprise to many, especially Jets fans. It seemed as if Jarrett was everywhere in Sunday's victory. The fourth-year safety had the best game of his young career with ten tackles, two interceptions, two passes defended, a sack, and a fumble recovery.

In a season full of turmoil, especially in the secondary, the Jets have been in need of someone to step up and bring a spark to the back end of the defense. Jarrett may have done that with his strong performance. His big game combined with reports of rookie safety Calvin Pryor being late to team meetings could end up meaning that Jarrett will take over as a full-time starter.

According to head coach Rex Ryan, Jarrett has proved to be impressive at practice, which translated into his three-takeaway performance. "Well, I just think he’s been doing a tremendous job and I see it on the practice field and the classroom, but I also see it on Sundays and that’s why he earned the starting spot this week," said Ryan. The chances of Jarrett getting more opportunities to start and develop is a big possibility. "I think it’s going to be hard to keep him out of that starting lineup," Ryan stated.
