Still Breathing: Jets Beat Bills, Sanchez Hurt

Jets Bills Football

For the second week in a row the Jets won ugly but again a win is a win. Somehow, someway the Jets currently are a 1/2 game out of the wild card and still have life heading into the final fourth of the season. Obviously, the big story leaving this game is that Mark Sanchez left in the second half after injuring his leg. The early reports is that it is a sprain and we probably won’t know his availability for the Tampa Bay game for a few days. Fortunately, he has a little extra time to recover since the Jets have 10 days until their next game. The sooner he is back, the better because Kellen Clemens looked awful tonight and Sanchez actually looked pretty good before he went down. He certainly wasn’t helped by the dropped passes…cough cough, Braylon Edwards, really? However, nice job by Braylon bouncing back with a touchdown reception.

3/4 of the world is covered by water, and the other 1/4 is covered by Darrelle Revis as far as I’m concerned. Terrell Owens was completely dominated by Revis who had 5 passes defensed and an interception. Debating whether Revis is the best corner in football this season is like debating whether the sky is blue. He is the best, don’t waste your breath arguing it. Shaun Ellis also had a great game tonight with 2 sacks, including a key one on the Bills final drive. David Harris continued to have an all-pro season with 11 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble. The Jets defense is reverting to early season form and is playing like an elite unit again.

Another strong game from Thomas Jones and a good effort from Shonn Greene. The two backs combined for 168 yards on the ground. Tony Richardson chipped in 36 yards and Brad Smith and David Clowney both had big plays on reverses. Brian Schottenheimer called a good game tonight.

So, what to do now? Hope Sanchez can get healthy in the next 10 days. Hope that we don’t choke on the road against the 1-10 Bucs. Hope that Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Denver lose and hope that New England and Miami beat each other up.

  1. Revis is having the best individual season a Jet has had since, I don’t know, Namath. Dominant every week.

    Shaun Ellis’ game clinching sack was an all-pro calibre play!

    Also, a thank you to the Bills coaching staff who, after Marshawn Lynch absolutely kicked our asses, BENCHED HIM! After getting two handoffs for 47 yards, and a TD, he got the ball one other time for two yards in the third quarter, (He also recovered a Fitzpatrick fumble.) Boy is HE in some sort of doghouse…

    Anyway, thank you defense (and TJ) and get welll, Mark. Quckly.

  2. Revis has been a beast…if the Jets were 9-3 he’d be in the MVP discussion and regardless of their record should be in the DPOY discussion. Ellis has been very good all season. I am not sure why Buffalo stuck with Fred Jacskon who couldn’t get anything going
