Chicago Bears’ run defense will determine outcome Monday night vs. Jets

The Chicago Bears narrowly avoided a disastrous 0-2 start after storming back from a 17-0 deficit against the San Francisco 49ers last week. They’re preparing for the New York Jets on the road, where they’ll play on Monday Night Football. The Jets are no longer the NFL’s laughing stock. They defeated the Oakland Raiders in Week 1, and they narrowly lost to the Green Bay Packers...

New role for Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson experienced a rarity last week. He played less than 50 percent of the offensive snaps, which happened only twice in his first six seasons, according to Pro Football Focus. To be exact, he played in 33 of 70 snaps in the Jets' win over the Oakland Raiders, a radical role change for a running back whose career is defined by the word "workhorse." Johnson...

Jets tickets 15% below average for Packers game

The Green Bay Packers aren’t catching much criticism for dropping their Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Packers fans probably had hoped for a better showing than a 36-16 drubbing, but beating the defending champs on the road, well, that just isn’t easy. As a matter of fact, it’s just not something that happens very often. Someone coming into Green Bay and winning...

Titans using 4 running backs to replace Johnson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Dexter McCluster could hear the Chiefs yelling, making sure each knew the speedster was on the field for the Titans. Rookie Bishop Sankey noticed defenders taking advantage of a timeout to see who Tennessee had in the huddle. Paying close attention is a must with the Titans using not one, two, three but four different running backs to replace Chris Johnson...

Jets' backfield trio adds versatility to offense

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Chris Johnson paused for a second to think about the last time he lined up in a wishbone-type formation. Three running backs. One backfield. Lots of problems for the defense. ''Probably high school,'' Johnson said smiling. Well, until last Sunday, when the New York Jets had him, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell in the backfield at the same time...

Five reasons the Packers might lose to the New York Jets this week

Here are five reasons the Green Bay Packers might lose on Sunday to the visiting New York Jets. 1. If they don’t stop the run. The Jet’s had the most potent rushing attack in week one, rushing for 212 yards against the Oakland Raiders.

Why a New York Jets upset win vs. Packers is more likely than you think

It wasn’t a pretty win on Sunday against the lowly Oakland Raiders, but the bottomline is the New York Jets got it done. They won 19-14, allowing just 158 yards of total offense. But it’s their defensive line that makes their defense so scary. They had the third-best rush defense and racked up 41 sacks last season. Now, they’re preparing to take on the Green Bay Packers at...

Packers: Stopping the Run is Key for Green Bay Against New York Jets

No matter how much the NFL changes the rules to favor the passing game, running the football and stopping the run will always play a vital role in determining the outcome of games. The Packers, who struggled to stop the run against Seattle learned that lesson in Week 1 and if they want to get their first win of the season Sunday at Lambeau Field against the New York Jets, stopping...

New York Jets: Using Michael Vick as Change of Pace Quarterback Fails Miserably

One would think after the whole Tim Tebow fiasco, that the New York Jets would have learned that using a change of pace quarterback in the NFL simply doesn’t work. However, during yesterday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, the Jets reverted back to their old, inadequate ways by using Michael Vick to change the pace for 3 plays. Here were the results of the 3 plays: Chris...

Oakland Raiders at New York Jets: 2014 Week 1 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (0-0) at New York Jets (0-0) I don’t understand this line. These two teams are essentially equal in my eyes, but the Jets are still favored by 5.5 points. This line should be about 3, the standard amount given for homefield advantage. The Raiders are going to be bad again, but the Jets should be equally bad. Their 8-8 record last season was not indicative of how...

It’s been an up and down couple seasons for Chris Johnson the last three years – even sometimes with remarkable highs and lows even within just a few games.
