- Stock watch: Risers and fallers
Some of the good and bad performances from Monday night’s 23-17 loss to the Texans:
1. Antonio Cromartie: The Cro was flying. He shut down WR Andre Johnson (one catch on six targets), intercepted a pass and played a little wide receiver, nearly connecting with Mark Sanchez on a deep ball. Say this for Cromartie: In Darrelle Revis’ absence, he’s playing like a No. 1 corner.
2. Joe McKnight: The running back-turned-cornerback-turned running back is a terrific kickoff returner, and he proved it again with a 100-yard touchdown — the second kickoff-return TD of his career.
- Rex Says ‘Never Say Never’ on T.O. but per Cimini Source; Jets have NO interest
- Source: No interest in T.O.
Don’t bother getting your popcorn ready. The Jets have no interest in signing unemployed WR Terrell Owens, a source said Tuesday.
Owens offered his services during Monday night’s game, tweeting that he’s ready, willing and able to suit up for the Jets, who lost Clyde Gates to a shoulder injury. Gates is scheduled for an MRI.
On a Tuesday morning conference call with reporters, Rex Ryan didn’t immediately dismiss the idea, saying, “You never say never or anything.
- Sanchez dreadful again, Jets lose, again! It’s Tebow time!
Sanchez continues his poor performance from last year. He has to show more against INDY or he needs to sit. It’s not fair to the rest of the team to have him continue to lose games like this. I’m not a fan of Tebow, but Tebow can complete 45% of passes AND run the ball. At this point, he is a better option for the Jets!
- Rex Ryan: Mark Sanchez still the starter
The chants for Tim Tebow will have to wait at least another week.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said on Tuesday that there is “no question” Mark Sanchez is still the starting quarterback heading into Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. But Ryan would not speculate beyond this week, according to the New York Daily News.
Sanchez had an up-and-down performance Monday in a 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans. He threw for 230 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Sanchez, Jets can’t run with Foster, Texans
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — A week after the Jets’ lifeless 35-0 performance against the San Francisco 49ers, New York showed a pulse Monday Night.
The pulse, however, was not enough to overcome the Houston Texans — or their own miscues. Mark Sanchez threw two interceptions, both coming at costly times for [...]

Finally! A Jets game fans can be proud of, even if they lost to the Houston Texans 23-17 and it’s from the “moral victory” perspective! Yes, it’s a glass half full view, but the Jets did show a lot of spirit. Even though they were knocked in the mouth repeatedly, they got up and stayed [...]

- Landry in no mood to explain absence
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — LaRon Landry refused to discuss an apparent disagreement that occurred on the sideline in the second quarter of the Jets’ 23-17 loss to the Texans on Monday night at MetLife Stadium.
Landry came off the field for a few plays and sat by himself on the bench, looking upset. Players walked by, trying to talk to him, but he remained stoic. Rex Ryan and secondary coach Dennis Thurman went over to talk to him, and CB Antonio Cromartie ended up pulling Thurman away from Landry.
- McKnight scores TD on kickoff return
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Joe McKnight has been switched from offense to defense, and back again, in the past few weeks. But in the Jets’ 23-17 less to the Texans, the running back and part-time cornerback showed why the Jets keep him on special teams.
McKnight returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown, and the extra point brought the Jets within 20-14 with 5:03 to play in the third quarter.
“I thought we had the momentum after that,” McKnight said.
- A tipsy night for Sanchez
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Mark Sanchez said the situation was “eerily similar” to Nov. 21, 2010, the day he pulled out a miracle win over the Texans. That day, he got the ball with less than a minute remaining and threw a game-winning touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes. This time, he got the ball with 3:28 left in the game, needing 84 yards and a touchdown.
But the injured Holmes was a spectator Monday night at MetLife Stadium, and Sanchez was out of miracles.
- New York Jets Week 5 Report Card
Week 5: Houston Texans @ NY Jets Quarterbacks: D Sanchez: 14/31, 230 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT Sanchez look decent, at times. However, he made numerous mistakes - including missing the mark on a crucial pass to Cromartie and getting numerous passes batted down at the line. In the end, he posted yet another game [...]
- Cromartie gets snaps at wide receiver
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Antonio Cromartie only had one catch Monday night — and it came on defense.
Cromartie was targeted twice as a wide receiver in the Jets’ 23-17 loss to the Texans, but was unable to come up with a reception.
His best chance came early in the second quarter, when he got behind the defense and was streaking down the right sideline. Mark Sanchez threw a deep ball, but it was too far right, and by the time Cromartie hauled it in he was out of bounds.
- Tebow again gets few opportunities
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tim Tebow has always presented himself as the ultimate team player with the Jets. Stripped of his former starting status with the Broncos last season and getting limited reps, Tebow maintains that he is just following the script.
But there was a moment in the Jets’ 23-17 loss to the Texans on Monday night when that may have been more difficult.
Tebow got the Jets to within three yards of the goal line after a 13-yard run in the fourth quarter.
