At least that’s what happened the first two times he got the nod. He piled up 41 yards rushing and...
With the Jets taking on rookie phenom Roy Helu and the Washington Redskins, the team is going to need all the help they can get to stop the running game. The bad news though is that the team looks to be without Mike DeVito, yet again, after an injury setback Sunday that has kept him from playing much of the past month.
Rex Ryan said that Jets DT Mike DeVito will likely not play...
I know some of you are fond of Football Outsiders, (as am I) so once the season gets underway and trends start developing, looking at an opponent’s rankings on Football Outsiders helps to give fans some perspective.
(As a heads up, negative percentages are good on defense, bad on offense & specials)
