And with a big helping hand from Geno Smith and the offense, the Jets beat the Atlanta Falcons, 30-28."We showed that we can be great,” Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson said, via The Star-Ledger.Ryan connected on 36 of 45 pass attempts for 319 yards and two touchdowns, but he was strip-sacked by Wilkerson in the fourth quarter, which turned into three more points for the Jets.
