Vote Revis ’09

Darrelle Revis deserves Defensive Player of the Year

Escaping Revis Island in 2009 has been a daunting task for opposing wide receivers.  

“I went back and looked and I was going to be subtle about this, but if Revis is not the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, something is wrong with the system,” Rex Ryan said. “Nobody, and I mean nobody, in maybe the history of the game has had the challenges that he’s faced week in and week out.” 

Darrelle Revis, who has six interceptions and an NFL-leading 36 passes defended in his third season, has routinely shut down opposing teams’ top receivers such as New England’s Randy Moss, Buffalo’s Terrell Owens, Carolina’s Steve Smith and Houston’s Andre Johnson.  Even in what Revis described as his worst game of the season, he held Reggie Wayne to two catches for 21 yards when the Colts starters were in the game.

The price you pay for victory

Mark Sanchez limps to the locker room after injuring his right knee in the Jets 19-13 victory

 

I guess the Jets should ask Joe Girardi for a refund for those sliding lessons. Well, not exactly.    

The Jets defeated the Buffalo Bills 19-13 in Toronto Thursday night, keeping their playoff dreams alive at 6-6.  Sanchez threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards before hurting his right knee, and Darrelle Revis and the Jets swarming defense finished the job en route to a victory. Sanchez finished 7-of-15 for 104 yards in an abbreviated night that was a much better performance than his previous game against Buffalo, when he threw a season-worst five interceptions, including one that set up the winning field goal.  Nonetheless, he suffered another knee injury and that might hurt his chances of playing the rest of the season.

Oh, Canada! Jets take on Bills in Toronto

December 3, 2009

 

Terrell vs. Darrelle, part two: Let's gets ready to rumble.

 

The New York Jets and Buffalo Bills meet in Toronto Thursday night, in a rematch of their meeting on October 18.  The Bills picked off Mark Sanchez five times in a 16-13 overtime road victory. However, the Jets were able to rush for an astonishing 318 yards rushing, and running the football should be the Jets No. 1 priority Thursday.  

While the Jets running game was impressive in week 6, the Buffalo Bills once-pathetic offense looked equally impressive Sunday against Miami. After averaging 12.3 points in the previous eight games, the Bills scored 24 unanswered points in the fourth quarter en route to a 31-14 win over the Dolphins this past Sunday. The 31 point outburst included a 51-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Terrell Owens.  The Bills will be tested against the NFL’s No. 2 ranked defense.
