Mike O’Connor breaks down the Jets’ defensive snap counts from the loss versus the Bills and previews who will play and where versus the Ravens this Sunday.
In the Jets’ miserable loss to the Bills last Sunday, a relatively low number of players played on defense with only 17 defenders checking into the game, as you can see by the accumulative spreadsheet here. As always, let’s take a deeper look and imagine what kind of schemes and players Rex Ryan will employ to defeat his former team this Sunday to get the Jets back over the .500 hump.

The Jets had two weeks to prepare for the Buffalo Bills after an impressive win over the New Orleans Saints. Sounds like a formula for success, right? Unfortunately, the team had trouble on both sides of the ball all day long on Sunday. One of the few bright spots was the linebackers, a crew that is often overshadowed by the horrendous play of the New York secondary. Lets take a look at how they faired against the Bills on the road.

Frank Giasone grades out the Jets DL in week 11
The Jets continued their trend of playing maddeningly inconsistent football in Sunday’s road loss to division rival Buffalo, as much of the playoff talk from the fanbase in the weeks leading up to this game have now been replaced with questions and concerns regarding this team and its components moving forward.
It’s no secret that this team has been riddled with inconsistency. Whether it’s alternating wins and losses or the abysmal performances on the road, this Jets team is a tough one to figure out. Hidden inside this inconsistent season, though, have been a few consistencies (both good and bad) from game-to-game on the defensive side of the ball. And those trends continued on Sunday.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the AFC Playoff Picture and the New York Jets standing heading into Week 12.
The New York Jets squandered a very good opportunity during Week 11. A win over the 3-7 Bills, coupled with a loss by the New England Patriots, would’ve put the Jets one game back of their arch rival in the division with 6 to play. Instead, the Jets didn’t take care of their business and were routed by the Bills. It was a horrible performance by a team that now finds itself faced with the daunting task of beating the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens on the road. Let’s take a look at the AFC Playoff Picture heading into Week 12.

Joe Caporoso on why New York Jets fans should temporarily put away the pitchforks and stop the massive amounts of panic
Throughout the off-season, the New York Jets began the process of rebuilding their roster. This was a needed process considering their salary cap and roster situation after the 2012 season. Expectations for this year were tempered or at least should have been tempered. The Jets didn’t have the makings of the league’s worst team but even an optimist should have seen the ceiling for this team as hovering around .500 and playing relevant December games.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets don’t have a QB controversy.
“He’s going to have a tough time in New York,” an NFC scout said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “Right now, he’s coming off as a spoiled, pampered brat.”
The quote above was attributed to an anonymous NFC scout after the New York Jets drafted Geno Smith 39th overall in the 2013 NFL draft. All he’s done since being drafted in the second round is lead the Jets to a 5-5 record through 11 games. I repeat, that’s ALL he’s done. He is 10 games into his career and is completing 56% of his passes for 2100 yards, 8 TDs, and 16 INTs. He leads the league in 4th quarter comebacks with 4, and has shown glimpses into what the future can be like once the game begins to slow down for him. After these performances, the New York media that said he would have a tough time have crowned him the franchise QB the Jets have lacked since Broadway Joe Namath.

Initial reaction to the Jets embarrassing loss to the Bills
The New York Jets continued their bizarre, incredibly frustrating season with a 37-14 whipping at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. This is a team that can still find no measure of consistency and yet because of how weak the AFC is on the back end, remain right in the thick of the playoff race.
