- Fantasy Football: Play \ Bench
Last week was a pretty good week, I went 7-3 in the Play them and 4-3 in the Bench them. Each week I review players who are ranked outside the top 10 for QB’s and TE’s and top 20 for WR’s in the weekly ESPN rankings. This will show you who I think will flourish […]

- Double Coverage: Jets at Patriots
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — When discussing the New England Patriots-New York Jets rivalry this week, quarterback Tom Brady called it “awesome.”
“I mean, it’s Boston-New York,” he said. “Any time you see them on the schedule, you just think of all the great games that you’ve had against them and you think of how challenging the game will be.”
With Brady leading the way, the Patriots have had the upper hand; he is 17-4 against the Jets since elevating to the starting job in 2001.
- Geno Smith tries to make history
This is what Geno Smith is up against Thursday night in Foxborough: No rookie quarterback has ever won in New England against a Bill Belichick-coached team, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
In fact, rookie quarterbacks are 0-4 on the road against the Belichicks, and the average margin of defeat was 23.5 points. All four were first-round picks — Byron Leftwich (Jaguars, 2003, lost by 14 points), Mark Sanchez (Jets, 2009, lost by 17), Andrew Luck (Colts, 2012, lost by 35) and Ryan Tannehill (Dolphins, 2012, lost by 28).
- Goldson fined for hit on Cumberland
Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson told reporters in Tampa on Wednesday that he received a “pretty significant” fine from the league for his hit on New York Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland. He was flagged for a personal foul on the play, which resulted in Cumberland leaving the game temporarily to receive stitches in his chin.
Goldson didn’t strike with his head — it was his shoulder — but Cumberland was considered a “defenseless” receiver.
- Green Day: A great rivalry continues
On Thursday night, the New York Jets and New England Patriots go at it again, the 106th game in the rivalry. For the record, the Patriots lead 53-51-1. I did a quick check, determining that I’ve covered no fewer than 52 games between these two teams. That’s pretty much three full seasons of Jets-Patriots, not to mention a lot of off-the-field news between them.
There have been so many memorable contests over the years, but I think the most memorable occurred Jan.
- Analysis: Sanchez’s days in NY appear over
Takeaways on the news that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has a labral tear in his throwing shoulder and likely will have surgery at some point, as reported by ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen:
1. Turn out the lights: Sanchez’s once-promising career with the Jets is effectively over. Even if he doesn’t opt for immediate surgery, he’d be a candidate for injured reserve. He probably would have been released after the season anyway, but the injury all but cements it.
- Patriot Players To Watch
The Jets are on the road to take on the New England Patriots. All eyes will be on Tom Brady and Geno Smith during this primetime Thursday night matchup. Here are some other New England Patriot players to watch. 1) Julian Edelman, wide receiver: With Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson, Zach Sudfeld, and Rob Gronkowski all […]
- Report: Sanchez Has Tear In Right Shoulder
Chris Mortensen is reporting that Mark Sanchez has a torn labrum and is facing surgery. Many local beat reporters are tweeting that Sanchez hasn’t made a decision on surgery at this time. Jets QB Mark Sanchez is likely to have surgery after Dr. James Andrews confirmed he has a labral tear in right shoulder, per […]
- W2W4: Jets at Patriots
The New York Jets play their first division game Thursday night against their top nemesis, the New England Patriots. Kickoff is 8:25 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. The top storylines:
1. Don’t feed the beast: Patriots coach Bill Belichick has fielded some mediocre defenses in recent seasons, but his unit has an uncanny knack for creating turnovers. In fact, it has forced at least one in 28 consecutive games. This will be the major factor Thursday, especially with rookie Geno Smith at quarterback.
- Jets \ Patriots Preview
After a dramatic 18-17 week one win over Tampa Bay, your New York Jets already have a third of their wins for the season, according to Sports Illustrated! Week two brings a slightly different challenge, as the Jets will travel to Foxboro to take on the evil empire, which had a little more trouble than […]
- Jets \ Patriots Injury Report; Jeremy Kerley Out
It’s a short week this week so whomever missed Sunday’s game will also miss tomorrow’s game, so that means Quinton Coples and Mark Sanchez are out once again. Everyone else outside of Jeremy Kerley is expected to play for the Jets. Kerley did not practice this week after being diagnosed with a concussion. The Patriots […]
- Injury report: Kerley ruled out
There were no surprises on the Jets’ injury report, released Wednesday. As expected, WR/PR Jeremy Kerley (concussion) was ruled out. To replace him, the Jets re-signed Ben Obomanu, cut in the preseason, but Kerley’s absence could mean bigger roles for Clyde Gates and rookie Ryan Spadola. It looks like Kyle Wilson will replace Kerley as the primary punt returner.
Otherwise, the Jets are in relative good shape as they prepare to face the Patriots on Thursday night in Foxborough, Mass.

- Geno’s task: Don’t be Sanchez vs. Patriots
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Santonio Holmes isn’t known as a locker-room sage, but he dispensed sound advice Tuesday to Geno Smith over lunch in the team cafeteria.
Discussing Thursday night’s showdown against the New England Patriots, Holmes told the rookie quarterback to manage the game, use the clock wisely, and don’t put the defense in bad situations.
What Holmes was really saying was this: Don’t be Mark Sanchez.
For the first time since Nov.
