Jets vs. Redskins: 12 Pack Of Predictions

TOJ with 12 predictions for Jets/Redskins

The 12 pack is marching towards the playoffs (hopefully)…here are 12 predictions for the Jets do or die game in Washington:

1. Roy Helu is going to run for more yards than Shonn Greene.

2. LaDainain Tomlinson will have a big impact in his return to the Jets line-up, with four receptions and 60 total yards of offense. He will also get back in the end-zone.

3. Aaron Maybin will record his sixth sack of the season and force another fumble.

4. Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan will lead a pass rush that will sack Mark Sanchez at least twice.

5. Darrelle Revis will have an interception. Rex Grossman will be sacked at least twice and turn the ball over at least twice.

6. Plaxico Burress will score yet another touchdown.

7. The Jets will NOT turn the ball over on special teams…finally.

8. Fred Davis will have a big game for Washington and score a touchdown.

9. Jeremy Kerley will be active in his return to the line-up, with a big punt return and three receptions.

10. Mark Sanchez will have at least one turnover and throw less than 30 passes.

11. Santonio Holmes will lead the Jets in receiving yards, finishing with over 70.

12. The Jets will win, an ugly, sloppy low-scoring game, 17-14. This one will come down to a late Nick Folk field goal.

  • shonn greene will have more rushing yards then helu and fred davis will not have a big day

  • Go Home Brady

    I think the Jets D will hold Helu to next to nothing and make grossman beat them… I agree with the Fred Davis statement though. Our 5 foot nothing safties always have a hard time with tight ends

  • David

    I agree with most, save for 10 & 12. I think this will be a high scoring game. Jets taking the lead early on then falling asleep and having to air it out in the 4th quarter – taking advantage of Sanchez’s late game hot hand after Kerley/McKnight sets up quick score on a short field off a great return to shift the momentum.

    14-10 Washington at the half.
    21-20 Washington at the end of the 3rd.
    34-21 Jets to end the game.

    One Special Teams TD (Kerley/McKnight)
    One Pick 6 by Revis
    Santonio Holmes TD off a mid field slant
    Plax draws a defensive PI in the end zone to set the jets up on the 1 for an Tomlinson TD
    + 2 Nick Folk Field Goals
    = 34
