PLAYERS: Bilal Powell
TEAMS: New York Jets
The New York Jets have shocked many people around the NFL with their 2-1 start this season. Geno Smith is doing everything he can to gain the respect of his teammates Many people had the Jets down and out before the season even started. People predicted the Jets would end up being the worst team in the league when the regular season came to its completion. However, the New York Jets have fought their way to 2-1. With a rookie quarterback and question marks about their offensive weapons, the Jets offense is ranked 10th in total offense after the first three weeks of the seasons. The Jets are averaging 18.3 points-per-game and rank 6th in the NFL in rushing. Bilal Powell has had a huge impact so far this season, especially last week against Buffalo. With each game, Geno Smith will only learn more and progress giving the Jets something to look forward to in the future. The biggest concern with the Jets offense is the minus 6 takeaway/ giveaway ratio. If Smith can eliminate turnovers (6 interceptions) the Jets defense will keep them in games and give them an opportunity to win. The Jets defense had some concerns coming into the season. The Jets lost leader Bart Scott and star corner Darrelle Revis. However, the Jets young defense has been exceptional so far this season. The Jets rank 3rd in the NFL in total defense, 7th against the pass and 6th against the run. Quinton Coples returned last week in a limited role, and is only expected to help this defense improve throughout season. The Jets get the Tennesse Titans on the road this week before a very tough stretch before the bye week. This game is crucial for the Jets. The Jets next five games, At Atlanta, home against Pittsburgh, home against New England, at Cincinnati and home against New Orleans.

I know it's shocking, but the Jets aren't terrible. Week 4 picks.

The Jets were supposed to be awful this year, but they aren't so bad.  The defense is a lot better than I expected and Geno Smith is a better game manager than Mark Sanchez. After a blazing hot 27-5 start to the season, I fell to the earth with a 7-9 Week 3.  I'm still challenging the ESPN Experts for the lead and I plan to take them down. Early in the season...
