It is a well-known fact that the New York Jets have been one of the most talked about teams this season. The controversial franchise has had an equally controversial season, as they have struggled to be consistent through six weeks of the season, but there is hope yet for Gang Green! After coming off a huge victory at home against the Packers last week, the Colts were looking to continue their success against a vacillating Jets team. Their moxy soon dissipated as the Jets dominated early with a punishing rushing attack led by Shonn Greene. Despite a low amount of passing yards (82), Mark Sanchez played well and threw for a pair of touchdowns. Even good ol' Timmy Tebow got in on the action, as he threw a 23-yard pass on a fake punt to give the Jets a first down. While some stars shined, others were dimly lit in this blowout Week 6 game.Heroes: The Jets' Running GameShonn Greene has been one of the more inconsistent players on this Jets team this year, but certainly made amends for his shoddy performances today. After only racking up 94 yards through four games, Greene exploded for 161 yards on 31 carries, and an impressive three touchdowns on the ground. If the Jets want to have success this season and potentially go to the playoffs, they must run the ball effectively. In 2011, Greene had his best season, rushing for almost 1,100 yards and six touchdowns. Greene has looked like a completely different player this season, but seems to have finally hit his stride against the Colts. Greene looked unstoppable on the ground and seemed to gain five yards even if he just tripped and fell to the ground. I have said it before, and I'll say it again, the Jets need to give Greene 25+ carries a game if they want to get back to their ground 'n' pound ways that they have prided themselves on since Rex Ryan took over three years ago.Greene wasn't the only guy carrying the ball for New York, as Tim Tebow, Joe McKnight, and Bilal Powell combined for an additional 92 yards, with McKnight accounting for 71 of those yards. To my estimation, it looks like McKnight is ready to step up and be a playmaker for this team. I really believe that they may have one of the best running back tandems in the league if they allow McKnight to get in on the action and share some carries with Greene. This game may have very well gotten the Jets back on track. Zeroes: Andrew Luck, Colts' Offensive LineThe first overall pick from this past April's draft has played well beyond his years this season, and has lived up to all the hype that has surrounded him since his years at Stanford. However, today was just not his day. After leading his team to a huge comeback victory over the Packers last week, Luck failed to continue his success against Mike Pettine's defensive unit.Luck was made uncomfortable early, and it looked like he may have been second guessing himself after throwing two interceptions, one of which would've been a pick six if not for a penalty during the run back. Luck nearly threw a second interception for a touchdown, if it wasn't for another penalty by the Jets. Luck only completed 50% of his passes, throwing a handful of balls out of the range of his receivers. In addition his interceptions, Luck also lost a fumble on a crucial drive. It was a tough day for the rook.Although Luck did not play well, we can not put all of the blame on him, his offensive line didn't do much for him in this game. The Colts' o-line allowed 4.5 sacks, and a hefty handful of hurries and quarterback hits, not to mention a scarce amount of holes being opened for their running backs, as Indy only averaged 2.4 yards per carry. Simply put, the Colts' offensive line was outmatched by the ferocious front seven of the Jets. They weren't able to score a single touchdown against New York and it was all rooted at the line of scrimmage. Rough day for Indianapolis.
