PLAYERS: Braylon Edwards
TEAMS: New York Jets
This weekend ex-NFL star Braylon Edwards denied reports he attacked a man outside a Detroit nightclub and, contrary to the oft-troubled Edwards' claims, TMZ has obtained video proving the out-of-work wide receiver didn't just attack a man — he delivered a cheap shot that would make a WWE wrestler wince. The video begins with the 6'3", 218-pound Edwards in the face of a photographer who allegedly shot footage of Braylon pushing someone else around outside the nightclub.  After Edwards screams at the guy, the photographer starts to walk away ... but Edwards chased after him, and while the unaware shutterbug had his back turned, Edwards reached down and ripped his ankles out from under him ... sending the poor guy flying face first into the pavement. Pretty rough stuff. The smaller photographer eventually got up and headed to a nearby police station, where he filed a battery report against the 30-year-old, reports TMZ. As for the extent of his injuries, TMZ said the man denied medical attention, claiming he only suffered minor injuries.  After the incident, Edwards adamantly denied any wrong doing ... tweeting, "The reports are blasphemy. Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn't harmed at all." Edwards' representative initially told TMZ ... the photog concocted the story in a shameless attempt to "take Braylon's money."  According to TMZ, the photographer is flippin' mad about the attack and plans to pursue his case all the way through. Hey Braylon. The Giants are looking are looking for a few good linebackers. Just sayin'. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

Yards aside, Jets' defense comes up big

BY NICK ST. DENISThe New York Jets were going to give up a lot of yards to Matt Ryan and a lot of first downs to Tony Gonzalez. That much was certain.But when Gang Green needed a blocked punt, they got it. When they needed a goal line stop, they got it. And when they needed a turnover, they got it. And with a big helping hand from Geno Smith and the offense, the Jets beat the Atlanta...

Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Jets: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4) at New York Jets (3-2) The bye week might have been exactly what the Steelers needed. They sit at 0-4, but they get as healthy as they can be during the bye, with veterans resting up and guys like Heath Miller and Le’Veon Bell getting extra time to get back to full strength. I still don’t think they’ll be as this bad all season. They’re getting destroyed...
