On Sunday the New York Jets traveled to a very familiar foe in recent years as they squared off with the Tennessee Titans. Speaking of familiarity the Jets played former running back Shonn Greene and returner Leon Washington while Chris Johnson got his first crack at his former club while with Gang Green.

First Quarter:

The Titans got the ball first but went nowhere and the Jets did the same on their first series. On the Titans next possession they were able to move down the field, aided by Phillip Adams falling down while in coverage of Nate Washington for a big gain. Ryan Succop made a 40 yard field goal to open the scoring. The Jets started their next series by Geno Smith completing a nine yard pass to Jeff Cumberland then 13 more to Eric Decker. A holding call on Breno Giacomini negated a 43 yard catch and run by Zach Sudfeld, two plays later.

After facing three of the four NFC North teams early in the 2014 season the New York Jets traveled to Minneapolis to play the Vikings. They are temporarily playing outside at the home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers while their new stadium is built. It was a tough contest that ended with a Vikings win in overtime 30-24.

First Quarter:

Geno Smith was intercepted by Hodges and returned into the end zone for a Vikings touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. On third down on the next series Geno finds a wide open Percy Harvin for 45 yards down to the Minnesota 32 yard line. Unfortunately a few plays later Smith was sacked for a 12 yard loss forcing a punt. Two plays into the Vikings opening drive in the shadow of their end zone Sheldon Richardson burst through to sack Teddy Bridgewater and get the Jets a safety. After the free kick on third down the Jets were aided by a pass interference penalty on Munnerlyn covering Jeremy Kerley to move them to the Vikings 39 yard line. Two plays later Geno Smith went deep and found Harvin for a 35 yard catch in the end zone to give them the lead 9-7. Bridgewater found Johnson wide open behind Darrin Walls several plays into their following drive to answer back and make the score 14-9. The Harvin show continued against his former team as he muffed the kick-off but returned it 47 yards to the Minnesota 35 yard line. Smith found Eric Decker on second down and he was able to elude the initial tackle to get first down yardage. They stalled after that but Nick Folk made the 26 yard field goal to make it 14-12.
