The Most Stressful Survivor Pick Of 2014 - A Tale Of Near Heartache On Thursday Night

Did you almost lose your mind watching the Patriots almost ruin your 2014 Survivor League?

Expect a big decline in prices for Jets tickets if Rex can’t right the ship

The New York Jets have had a pretty tough go of it so far in 2014. Geno Smith has struggled and fans have called for his head. Chris Johnson has been a free agency bust. The normally reliable New York defense has even fallen apart at the seams with the last two running backs surpassing 100 total yards from scrimmage, as well as both quarterbacks throwing for more than 300 yards....

Patriots win, but run defense struggles

Jared Wickerham/Getty ImagesThe Jets made life a lot tougher on New England then most of us expected (certainly me), keeping the game close the whole way.

Chris Johnson Basically MIA In Week 6

It has gotten worse and worse for Jets running back Chris Johnson, who gained just 9 yards in Week 6.Fantasy Spin:It wasn't just Johnson, as the Jets gained just 31 yards rushing on 15 attempts. Chris Ivory had eight rushes for seven yards. The Jets offense is a disaster. It would be better to stay away from the entire unit.

Let’s get to the...

We will dabble a little bit in the blame game for the New York Jets at times this week but for the most part we are going to stick to football.

Ivory and CJ?K Struggle In Week 5

Jets running back Chris Ivory rushed a team-high nine times for just 44 yards while his teammate Chris Johnson rushed for just 24 yards. Fantasy Spin:It was better production than fellow running back Chris Johnson, but neither posted fantasy-worthy numbers in a 31-0 blowout. It doesn't help that the Jets are 30th in scoring with just 79 points, so opportunities to score are few...
