Found September 29, 2013 on AFC East Daily:
Publisher Nick St. Denis, associate editor Dan Begnoche and senior contributor Sean Donovan pick the AFC showdown between the New York Jets and the Tennessee Titans.Nick's take:Both the Jets and Titans got into severe penalty trouble last week but found a way to win. With their respective rushing attacks and defenses rolling, discipline could be the difference when the two face off. Geno Smith won't be given the amount downfield opportunities he had last week against the Bills, but good early production from Bilal Powell against a so-so run defense will open things up in the second half.Prediction: Jets 20, Titans 10Dan's take:Though there won't be an on-field reunion between Shonn Greene and his former teammates, the running game will have a big impact in this one. Chris Johnson, the AFC's leading rusher, takes on a Gang Green defense ranked sixth against the run, while Powell will be mostly on his own with Chris Ivory out with a hamstring ailment. Turnovers wil...

Jets Bilal Powell starting to impress with how he finishes

How a running back falls might not seem like the most obvious measure of his effectiveness. His goal after all is to not get tackled. But when Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn analyzes his players he watches how they finish runs. This often indicates how well they began the play. When a running back finishes a run correctly he falls at an angle that lets Lynn know he did not...

Rex Ryan and the Jets won't, and can't, bench Geno Smith
