Turn On The Jets:
New England Patriots
New York Jets
St. Louis Rams
The New York Jets season received a shot of life with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. However, it will take an upset over the New England Patriots this Thursday night to truly make them relevant in the AFC playoff picture again. Here is a collection of early thoughts -
1. The big injury news this week is that Patriots tight end Rob Grokowski will not play because of a broken forearm. Considering he is the league’s best tight end and had 2 touchdowns in their early season match-up…yes this is a huge deal. Aaron Hernandez is expected to play and the Jets coverage attention must now shift to him and Wes Welker. It will be interesting to see how the Jets play Welker since Isaiah Trufant, who covered him the majority of the first match-up, is now out of the season. Look for them to frequently bracket him and throw a collection of different corners at him, hopefully led by Antonio Cromartie who is the only one with the ability to cover him man to man.

We’ve gotten to a point – and maybe rightfully so – where Mark Sanchez can do no right in the eyes of some Jets fans. Yesterday, Sanchez played a smart, effective, efficient, well-rounded game. He was sharp, confident...
Of the many things that put Wes Welker among the best slot receivers in the game, the biggest has to be his ability to pop up after big hits and play through injuries.
The resilience is vital for any receiver, especially an undersized one like Welker, who has to take the fiercest hits over the middle from much bigger players if he wants a chance to produce.
Welker has been able to...
Wes Welker returned to practice on Friday, another sign that suggests that he will be active against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Welker who has been dealing with an ankle injury also participated in Thursday’s walk-through. The offense of the Patriots has the leagues highest output in terms of yards (430) and points per game.

New England wideout Wes Welker is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the New York Jets.Fantasy Spin:It seems like typical Bill Belichick speak that the entire Pats team is on the injury report every week. We expect Welker to play and he should be in all lineups.
Wide receiver Wes Welker is active for New England in Week 11.
Welker was listed as questionable while dealing with his ankle injury, but was never in jeopardy of missing todays tilt vs. Indy. Brandon Lloyd and Rob Gronkowski are good to go as well, while Aaron Hernandez remains out.
This is the last of the bye weeks. It’s all up to health and strategy from here on out to get you to a fantasy football championship. Here are some...

4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is. The Jets win over St Louis has seemingly calmed the Florham Park madness down for the time being but more importantly, has moved...
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...
The New York Jets may have saved their season. For now. And may have saved their head coach his job also. For now. In coming to St. Louis and slapping the Rams around the Edward Jones Dome 27-13, the Jets have given themselves a reason to celebrate and keep the New York media off their backs. For now.Here are five things we learned from the game on Sunday:1. New York quarterback...
JETS OFFENSE KICKS IT INTO HIGH GEAR AS DEFENSE STIFLES SCHOTTY'S RAMS OFFENSE. The Jets managed to put aside the gigantic off-the-field distraction of yet another anonymous player bashing teammates for a convincing win in St. Louis Sunday. Further more, they left their three-game losing streak in the review; riding a trio of running backs and a smothering defense on their difficult...

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.

New England + 6 @ NY Jets
Atlanta + 12 v. Tampa Bay
New Orleans + 15.5 v. San Fran
Green Bay + 16 @ NY Giants
Why we like these games:
The Pats have lost only 3 games this season, and each loss has been by two points or less. Although they just lost Gronk, a 6-point cushion against...
The New York Jets (4-6) have a playoff pulse. They completed dominated the Rams (3-6-1) in St. Louis in one of their most complete games of the season.
The only negatives of the game, besides Tim Tebow’s incredible lack of productivity, was Nick Folk having another field goal blocked and his first outright miss of the season.
The Jets opened the game driving...

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?

If I am Rex Ryan, my pregame speech is similar to Lou...
