New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers
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 don’t run the ball particularly well with mediocre back Shonn Greene now ceding carries to an unproven Bilal Powell and Mark Sanchez is as he’s always been.
Revis’ injury is huge. It can’t be understated. Revis’ presence as someone who can shut down one side of the field is huge because it allows the Jets to use all sorts of exotic blitz packages. They already rank just 27th in the league in pass rush efficiency so I don’t expect them to get very much pressure at all on Alex Smith behind an improved San Francisco offensive line. Calvin Pace looks pretty done, Aaron Maybin is proving last year was a fluke, and rookie ...

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...
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.
Rex Ryan says the New York Jets are not ready to place star cornerback Darrelle Revis on season-ending injured reserve in case he recovers from a torn knee ligament in time to play in the Super Bowl.
Ryan says Friday that if there's a ''0.0002 percent chance'' Revis, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last Sunday, can come back and play...
The San Francisco 49ers defense was looking like the best in the NFL by leaps-and-bounds, but they looked human against the Minnesota Vikings of all teams.
It was remarkable since Jim Harbaugh always struggled in the Metrodome, and history clearly repeated itself as they were stunned on the road 24-13.
Alex Smith looked like...
Antonio Cromartie is taking Darrelle Revis' injury as an opportunity to boast about his ability. You'll never believe the claim he's making.
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.
When Darrelle Revis lay on the turf at Sun Life Stadium Sunday clutching his knee in pain, the worst fears of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan were being realized. But in a strange twist, the season ending injury to the star cornerback may in fact have been a blessing in disguise for the bombastic Ryan, whose bold predictions of Super Bowl victories in the past have helped to...
Darrelle Revis is likely gone for the season with a knee injury, and Kyle Wilson has the tough task of replacing the All-Pro cornerback for the New York Jets.
The rest of Rex Ryan's defense will need to step up in a big way, too, starting Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine says no one can ''just step in and replace a Darrelle...

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is likely out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL leaving Antonio Cromartie to believe he’s now the No.1 guy in the NFL.
Cromartie told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he’s now the best cornerback in the entire NFL, better than even Nnamdi Asomugha.
"I have said that I'm the second-best corner in the NFL,"...
The New York Jets have lost cornerback Darrelle Revis for the season, but they should have Dustin Keller back for the first time since the opening offensive play of the season. Dustin Keller made a seven yard catch on that play, but came up lame and didn't return to the game. He has been absent from the lineup since, and his absence has been very noticeable. Going up against...
