New York Jets
St. Louis Rams
The New York Jets (3-6) will play the St. Louis Rams (3-5-1) this Sunday afternoon at the Edward Jones Dome from St. Louis, MO.
Game starts at 1:00 pm on CBS (TV) and WEPN (Radio).
Rams favorites over Jets.
Spread is - 3.5 points.
My pick is the Rams.
It's do or die for the New York Jets season as they travel on the road to take on the St. Louis Rams who both teams are playing for their lifes.
Whoever thought the Jets would be underdogs against the Rams a couple years ago and who also thought Mark Sanchez would be a regressed player.
There have been rumblings about getting rid of Mark Sanchez for Tim Tebow or Greg McElroy, but neither of these three aren't the answer and HC Rex Ryan is sticking with Mark Sanchez for now.
Here are the three keys to the game for the Jets in order to win:
(1) The offense hasn't scored a touchdown in two weeks and somehow, someway, Mark Sanchez has to get his team downfield or this game is going to be in a hurry.
(2) How about the Jets defense puts pressure on Sam Bradford who is a descent quarterback, but he isn't a great one. If they could force him to make tough throws all game. He will throw at least 3 INT's.
(3) They need the return game to do well in order to get good field position and hopefully the offense can take advantage of that.
Questionable: RB Bilal Powell (Concussion), DT Siona Pouha (Back), WR Jeremy Kerley (Heel), LB Bart Scott (Toe), RB Joe McKnight (Ankle)
Questionable: WR Austin Pettis (Toe), S Darian Stewart (Knee), DE Eugene Sims (Knee), LB Mario Haggan (Thigh)
Final score is Rams 24, Jets 16
BEST OF MAXIM
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson told the media on Thursday that they’re going to evaluate quarterback Mark Sanchez just like any other player on the team. “Mark is a player on the team,” Johnson said, via the New York Daily News. “We’re going to evaluate him as we do the other players. He’ll be evaluated just like anybody else.” Then Johnson slightly changed his tune...
'WE WILL PERSIST'
If any Jets player has an idea of what Tim Tebow is going through right now it's his chief adversary — and ally — Mark Sanchez. While the Tebow bashing is shifting some of the negative attention from Sanchez's dismal performance as starting quarterback so far this season — it was less than a year ago that Sanchez went through the same kind of talent assassination by...
Despite being mired in one of the worst slumps of his four-year career, Mark Sanchez still has a firm hold on the New York Jets' starting quarterback job.
Rex Ryan remains committed to Sanchez as his team's leader - while popular backup Tim Tebow is still just a part-time contributor who many think should be given a chance at rescuing the Jets' season.
Owner Woody Johnson...
I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10.
At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule.
But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...
New York Jets running back Shonn Greene did not have many nice things to say about teammate Mark Sanchez during his interview with Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday, but at least he attached his name to the quotes. Greene said he felt badly for Sanchez, but it seemed clear that he believes the Jets need to give Tim Tebow a shot given their 3-6 record with Sanchez starting...
For at least one day, the New York Jets halted the downward spiral.
Mark Sanchez was solid for the first time in several weeks, the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback presiding over a turnover-free offense in a 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The beleaguered Sanchez was an efficient 15 of 20 passing for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Tebow was merely a footnote...
Former New York Jets running back LaDanian Tomlison said he believes he knows who called Tebow "terrible" in a report by the New York Daily News on Wednesday. Tomlison said on his Sirius XM Radio Show Wednesday that after reading the quotes he believes cornerback Antonio Cromartie and linebacker Bart Scott were the ones ripping Tebow. Scott fired back at Tomlison telling...
Since the trade for Tim Tebow and the pictures of him running shirtless in the rain at practice, the talk about the two time college National Champion has faded. As the 3-6 Jets head to St. Louis to face the Rams this week, the reports from New York have informed the public that multiple players on the Jets team have ripped Tim Tebow and openly said they feel like Mark...
The New York Jets (4-6) beat the St. Louis Rams (3-6-1) 27-13, today at the Edward Jones Dome from St. Louis, MO.
Good news Jets fans! Gang Green has finally won a football game as Mark Sanchez can shut up critics for at least the couple of days.
Mark Sanchez had an very good manageable game moving his offense downfield and finally OC Tony Sparano drew a good gameplan for once...
Green and White Report delves into the Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow quarterback controversy surrounding the New York Jets. While Tebow has often been referred to as the 'inferior' quarterback of the two, his careers numbers tell a different story.
Not many quarterbacks in the NFL have less to work with than New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, which is why he's been given an unprecedented amount of slack during his tumultuous 2012 season. After losing Santonio Holmes for the season to a Week 4 injury, Sanchez's No. 1 target has been second-year slot receiver Jeremy Kerley, who has actually been really good. But...

Chris Gross - Jets 23-Rams 17: Can New York turn a week of internal turmoil into enough motivation to grab a road victory in a must win situation? At what point does this team develop a chip on their shoulders for all the doubters and perceived negativity they are subject to, week in and week out? If I am Rex Ryan, my pregame speech is similar to Lou...
