Super Fast Friday: Jets at Titans

Dan Marcus breaks down the Jets vs. Titans, “Super Fast Friday” style.

After an unnecessarily hard-fought win at home against the Bills, the Jets start the most brutal stretch of games any team in the NFL has to deal with this season and it starts this Sunday in Tennessee.

Quote of the Week:

“The football gods will allow you to get even with a guy, especially if he’s wronged.-Dennis Thurman on what he told Kyle Wilson after he imploded and was briefly benched against the Bills.

Dan’s “Two Cents”:

Although the offense looked pretty impressive last week against Buffalo, I sense a little bit of “fool’s gold” here as the Bills secondary was pretty banged up and the 2nd and 3rd stringers did not play particularly well. I would like to think that Stephen Hill is improving and getting open more consistently but I’m going to have to see it against a legitimate secondary, of which Tennessee certainly has. The receivers will have a real test and this may be the game where the Tight Ends have their resurgence.

On the other side of the ball, the Titans aren’t really scaring very many defenses let alone the Jets. Chris Johnson is no longer “CJ2K” and Kenny Britt is just a consummate screw-up so I would expect Rex’s defense to make Jake Locker uncomfortable early and often. I really don’t know what to make of this Tennessee team as a whole and I ultimately see this game coming down to the Quarterbacks and which one is capable of making fewer mistakes. I don’t think the Jets are capable of losing the turnover battle again and coming away with this one on the road. Overall, it should be a tightly contested game in which the Jets cover the spread by a hair.
