Final Notes: Jets Vs. Cowboys

John Hargaden with final notes on Jets vs. Cowboys

The New York Jets are riding high on a 3 game winning streak. What will it take to make it a 4? Let’s take a look..

Offense – In the last three games, Ryan Fitzpatrick has had the best stretch of his career. He has thrown for 9 TDs and no interceptions. This Jets offense has taken flight as of late with many players contributing. The last time Brandon Marshall played at AT&T Stadium, he suffered a serious injury to his lungs.   am expecting Marshall to have a huge game tonight. The Cowboys have done a solid job this season in terms of pass defense but they have not faced a tandem like Marshall and Eric Decker. Chris Ivory is leading the AFC this year with over 920 rushing yards and I am expecting him to be over 1,000 yards on the season after tonight. The Cowboys have allowed over 100 rushing yards per game this year. An area of concern for me is the Cowboys pass rush and Greg Hardy. Most likely, Breno Giacomini will be a 1 on 1 matchup. If Breno can not handle Hardy early, expect Chan Gailey to use a WR or RB to chip Hardy.

Defense – Alright Jets fans, Tony Romo is NOT starting tonight for the Cowboys, Matt Cassel is.  For me the game plan is simple, shut down the Cowboys running game. Darren McFadden and Robert Turbin have been the primary focus at RB this season. Make Cassel throw the ball 35-40 times an good things will happen for the Jets. The Jets are allowing less than 80 yards on the ground per game. The Cowboys have a decent offensive line and it is going to be key for the Jets to generate pressure and keep Cassel guessing all night. Dez Bryant will be covered by Darrelle Revis all night and I am not expecting Bryant to do much at all.

Prediction –  I am expecting a huge game by the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to have a big game tonight. The Jets defense is going to be swarming all over this Dallas offense early and often. Darrelle Revis will have a pick 6 tonight and this Jets team will have over 3 sacks.  Fitzpatrick will throw 2 TDs and Ivory will be running one into the end zone. I will be here in Dallas tonight cheering our green and white on! Tonight the Jets WILL PAINT DALLAS GREEN Jets 24 Dallas 6.
