Jets Turn Up the Pressure on the Bills in the A.F.C. East With a Win at Giants
(Buffalo, NY) The New York Jets are looking like another playoff team with a victory over the Buffalo Bills. The New York Jets took care of business in week 13, overcoming some early mistakes by a Buffalo team that had allowed four passing touchdowns the previous week. The Jets are now 3-3, but they haven’t been at their best in games where they have had to play both teams on the road.
Now, the Jets and their fans have to get ready for a tough divisional road trip in week 15. The Jets travel to Oakland, where they are on the road to face the Raiders (3-3).
The Jets defense has played very well, limiting the opposing quarterbacks to just 2.5 YPA and 3 points per game. They are allowing 29.3 points and the Jets are allowing just 3.0 point per game.
The quarterback in this game is Trent Edwards, who is in his second season with a very average passer rating of 71.6. I believe that number is about what you would expect for a quarterback who has never thrown for more than 200 yards before. He has also thrown 18 interceptions.
The Jets rushing attack has been effective, putting up just 15 carries for 23 yards. They are averaging 2.3 yards per carry, but it really isn’t that impressive on the whole. The running effort has been pretty good for the Jets, but they have been able to sustain a solid rushing attack so far.
The game plan for the Jets has been simple. They have used an air raid offense, where they are giving up 4 passing yards for every rushing yard.
This offense is run by Jason Campbell, and he has shown to be an absolute terror on offense. He has a perfect passer rating of 110.0, and he has only had 2 interceptions this season. He has shown us once again why the Jets have allowed fewer than 2 passing yards with the exception being when Tim Tebow threw 8 passes against them.
His number one target is Jamarca Sanford, who is the Jets best wide receiver
