JETS FINALLY GET ON THE BOARD
The Jet fans were putting major pressure on Coach Reece Mills to get this team a win. All the talk in the papers was how disappointing the Jets were playing and how they are putting too much pressure on Geno to will this team to win. Bottom line is, the Jets defense needed to step up and stop letting opposing offenses go up and down the field on them. Yes, they have been able to cause turnovers but the Jets this year have barely played from ahead in a game. In fact they haven't done it since the Bills game.
"Efficiency, efficiency, efficiency," said Reece Mills. The name of the game was be unpredictable all game and to maximize the offense to it's fullest capabilities. Also, for their defense to actually DEFEND. The first drive was indicative of how the Jets defense has been all season. First offensive play for the Eagles, Shady McCoy takes a short pass 57 yards to the Jets side of the field. Yet, in an act of sheer forces aligning themselves in the skies, the Jets defense actually held the Eagles to a FG! "If there's any moral victories to come out this game, that was it," said Reece Mills.
That hold fired up the Jets as the offense, which was said by coach to be in full attack mode, regardless of the score went to work to answer the Eagles with a TD drive to go up 7-3. The scoring though did go back and forth with scores of 10-7 Eagles, 14-10 Jets, 17-14 Eagles and then 21-17 Jets. The Eagles wanted to answer and their offense was really moving the ball at will for the 1st half until FS Dawan Landry picked off a Fales pass. A huge momentum swing occurred before the 1st half with that pick as the Jets scored 7 off that turnover to go up 28-17. Then Fales fumbled with the Eagles trying to answer that score on the next possession. The Jets would kick a FG to go into half 31-17.
With the Jets up, they naturally got a bit conservative and let the Eagles get back into this game. The Eagles continued to befuddle the Jets with their speed for the most part throughout the game and was down 34-27 late in the 4th quarter. But the Jets finally found their offensive niche they had in the 1st half and made some big time 1st downs, throwing on assumed running downs to move the ball downfield. The Jets ate up clock and was in the redzone under two minutes but with the Eagles having their allotted amount of timeouts still there, the Jets needed to make this lead a bit more comfortable. Chris Ivory would oblige with a big TD run to go up 2 scores with a minute and change left in the game. The Eagles would frantically move the ball downfield before Jackson got smacked by Landry near the end zone and fumbled away any hopes of a comeback.
Geno Smith once again is showing that he's one of the better passers in the game. Geno threw for 352yds with 3 total TD's on the game. "He's growing into an elite passer every time I see him out there. Once he gets the turnovers under control, he will take that next step...but no doubt he is making big boy throws out on the field," said Coach Mills.
Geno- 18/27, 352yds, 2TD's, INT, 4car, 30yds, TD
Goodson- 10cat, 63yds, TD, 3rec, 59yds
Holmes- 7rec, 116yds
Hill- 3rec, 87yds, TD
Cromartie- 6 tackles, FR
Fales- 15/27, 376yds, INT
McCoy- 16car, 98yds, 3TD's, 1rec, 57yds
Celek- 4rec, 110yds
Raiders Hold of Lions for 28-19 Win to go 3-1
The Raiders coming off an OT loss look to bounce back against 2-1 Lions. Calvin Johnson coming off a 300 yard receiving game is thrashing defenses on a weekly basis and the Raider secondary have a lot of work to do to stop CJ. First though, another player playing well is Darren McFadden and quickly got off getting chunks of yards against the Lion defense. The Raiders through the running of Dmac jumped on top of the lions early 14-3 in the 1st quarter behind big runs by Dmac and newly acquired Andre Johnson's first TD pass with the Raiders. The Raider secondary showed up today able to hold CJ for the most of the 1st half for 40 yards receiving which is a good thing. The secondary also made plays picking off Stafford twice in the first half as Stafford was targeting CJ, the Raiders took advantage and piled on two more scores to go up 28-3 at one point in the 2nd half.
With the game getting out of hand, the Lions defense finally started to make plays and got back into the game with some key interceptions against Pryor who threw for four in the game. The Lions took advantage with Stafford finally able to get the ball to CJ on a TD reception to bring the Lions closer 28-10. More turnovers plagued Pryor in the 2nd half with the lIon again taking advantage of great field position with the lions getting another TD to get the score 28-19 in the 4th quarter. The lions tried a 2 point conversation to try to bring the game within one scoring possession , but wasn't able to do so. The Raiders eventually ran out the clock and hold off the lions for the win.
Titans play host to Texans on a beautiful October day in Tennessee.
The determined Texans came to Tennessee to get their first win and just barely fall short. The Titans turned the ball over for the first time all season on two fumbles one by CJ and one by Mariani. The first TO lead to a 14-7 lead in the 1st quarter for the Texans. But each time the Texans would take the lead, the Titans would answer back.
The 2Q saw the Titans tie the game and take the lead into the half. Johnson made up for his fumble with some nice runs and scoring 2 TDs in the game.
3Q Texans received the ball and scored on their opening drive to tie the game on a nice Foster run off the LT. On the next kickoff Marc Mariani put the ball on the ground and gave the Texans the ball again. This time Schaub would connect with TE Scheffler for a 14 yard TD strike and his only catch of the game. Titans would answer back and score a nice pass to FB/TE Stevens over the middle. Titans would hold the Texans to a punt, and the Titans would take the lead on a Potter FG to take a 24-21 lead.
4Q The Texans would punt one last time and the Titan's Locker played his heart out on the next drive rushing 3 times and converting 2- 3rd downs, and a crazy dive from 3 yards out near the goal line that saw him bounce and tumble off defenders a fall into the endzone. The Texans would answer back though with a FG and pull the game within 1 score. The Titans didn't do much on the ensuing drive and punted the ball with around 3 minutes to go in the game. The Texans would scratch and claw there way down the field and score with 40 second left in the game to TIE it 31-31. BUT on the kickoff, the same guy who fumbled it earlier was about to make Tennessee fans go CRAZY. Mariani took the kickoff from the goal line and sprinted towards the left hash marks... spins and makes a guy miss and with no one else in front of him he cruised to a game winning 100-yard kickoff return for a TD. Titans win 38-31 and go 4-0.
Looking forward to our future games.
