Congratulations to David Harris, who was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the week for his game against the Bills.  Harris made a great interception in the second quarter, was credited with five tackles on the day (one for loss) along with two quarterback hits. Randy Lange notes on the Jets website that in just nine weeks so far this season, this is the third DPOW for the Jets. It’s also the Jets defense’s third POW award this season and its second in the past three games. Antonio Cromartie won the title after his showing vs. Jacksonville in Game 2, and Darrelle Revis was similarly rewarded his Week 6 primetime effort against the Dolphins. It speaks to the multifaceted nature of this defense.  The Jets can beat you with multiple playmakers from multiple spots on the defense.

Ryan's Jets defense showing signs of dominance

The New York Jets' defense caused turnovers, stuffed the run and put constant pressure on the quarterback against Buffalo. Finally, the dominant defense Rex Ryan insisted the Jets would have showed up last Sunday. It needs to be just as good this weekend against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in an AFC East showdown. It's not that the Jets had been bad on defense...

Jets' offense has green light in red zone

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Remember that queasy feeling Jets fans would get last season when their team made it into the red zone? Remember the way eyes used to roll and negative tweets used to flow as everyone feared that the offense again would flame out near the goal line?

Burress mum on Eli Manning's hot start

Don’t ask Plaxico Burress about Eli Manning. The wide receiver bristled when questioned about his former quarterback in the Jets locker room, twice telling a reporter that he wouldn’t comment on Manning’s recent stretch of great play. “I’m not talking about any of that,” Burress said, ...

Different Directions

Since week 5 both the New York Jets and the New England Patriots have been trending in opposite directions. It was then we saw the Patriots move to 4-1 and the Jets fall to 2-3 after the pats hung 30 points on the Jets defense to beat Rex and his band of talkers by 9. After getting to 13 straight games with at least 30 points or more Brady’s Bunch has been having trouble reaching...
