49ERS vs. JETS (Sun Sept 30 1 PM ET)
The 49ers are coming off a loss to the Vikings and now they face a Jets team that is 2-1, but lost defensive leader CB Darrellle Revis in their last game. The Jets did win their last game, but it went to OT and was against the weak Dolphins.
Frank Gore and the rushing offense of San Fran struggled against the Vikes, but this Sunday they face a Jets run defense that only ranks 28th in the league.
Alex Smith has the weapons and he will likely find some with Revis out and a patchwork New York pass defense.
The 49ers run defense allowed the Vikings to rush for nearly 150 yards. That is unlikely in this game, as star defensive stud Patrick Willis will play and the Jets RB Shonn Greene is averaging only 2.8 yards per carry.
The 49ers will get back to playing good D and Gore and company will tear up the New York defense and San Francisco will get back in the W column with a win in the Big Apple.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quinton Coples is a weed. And that's no knock on the sixteenth overall draft pick either. Weeds, like the dandelion, sprout fast -- setting up roots and, if not uprooted, continues to rapidly grow in strength and size.Much like weeds, Coples was not welcomed to many Jets fans' gardens -- instead desiring a prettier pass-rushing plant (Melvin Ingram...
Tight end Vernon Davis, who leads the 49ers with four touchdown catches, was a late addition to the team's injury report with a back injury. That injury did not keep Davis from practicing Friday -- he was a full participant -- and he is listed as probable on the team's injury report.
Three 49ers are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets: running...
San Francisco 49ers (2-1) at New York Jets (2-1)
Remember how the Jets’ chance to make the playoffs was on the conservative offense, good defense, don’t make mistakes, easy schedule model? Yeah, that doesn’t work if you can’t play good defense and without Darrelle Revis, they’re going to have a hard time doing so many of the things they normally do on defense. They also...
The New York Jets were 30,000 feet in the air, flying back home from Miami and already planning for their biggest fear.
How in the world are they going to replace Darrelle Revis?
Revis is likely gone for the season with a knee injury sustained against the Dolphins on Sunday, and Kyle Wilson has the tough and unenviable task of taking over for the All-Pro cornerback.
New York Jets‘ Antonio Cromartie is one confident person. Earlier in the season, Cromartie dubbed himself the “second-best wide receiver” on the Jets roster behind Santonio Holmes. And now, Cromartie is labeling himself as the best cornerback in the NFL.
It is funny, though, since his teammate Darrelle Revis is considered the best in the league. However, Cromartie thinks...
Like many great nations, the collapse of Revis Island is detrimental to all of its neighbors. The ability of Revis Island to shut down any enemies was how the cornerback made his reputation.But, like many prosperous nations, the most impressive trait was how he elevated all of his allies.Sure, Darelle Revis can play suffocating man-to-man coverage with the best. And many great receivers...
There is little doubt that New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis is the best in the league at what he does. The shut down messiah unfortunately suffered an ACL tear last Sunday, presumably ending his season. Head Coach Rex Ryan has different thoughts in that regard, however, and the Jets will keep Darrelle Revis off injured reserve (IR) in case they reach the Super Bowl:
The best player on the Jets is out for the year and the Jets are headed South in the standings. And the Patriots battle with the hot Bills.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated today that they won’t place cornerback Darrelle Revis on season ending injured reserve just yet, in hopes that he’ll be back in time for the Super Bowl.
Rex is awfully optimistic to assume that his team is going to the Super Bowl after only playing three games. But then again, Revis is the best player on their entire team.
The loss of cornerback Darrelle Revis may weaken the New York Jets defense a bit for their game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, but it also creates more headaches for 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman to try to figure out how the Jets will compensate. Rex Ryan and his Jets defensive staff are known for the variety of looks they throw at an offense, and now they...
Don’t get nervous now, Rex Ryan.
The New York Jets head coach is backpedaling from his comments he made regarding the team’s defense needing to pour hot sauce on running back Reggie Bush before the team’s Week Three match-up versus the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.
Bush took those comments as the Jets tried to take him out and actually ended up leaving the eventually....
The Jets will play with a 52-man roster at least until Darrelle Revis completes his surgery for a torn ACL, Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Ryan does not want to put his Pro Bowl cornerback on Injured Reserve just yet. The reason being: He doesn't want to rob Revis, and the team, a chance of him playing in the Super Bowl.
"You know what? And I've talked...
