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 on the Jets opponent for this weekend and what to expect.
(As a heads up, negative percentages are good on defense, bad on offense & specials)

Instead, Marshall has struggled to live up to the lofty [...]

Former Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Dan Henning put it best last season when he described Brandon Marshall as a “caged Tiger” before each game.
Marshall is an emotional person, and his emotions have driven him on and off the football field for years. It’s allowed him to play with a reckless abandonment.
