Ryan Fitzpatrick named AFC offensive player of the week

First of all, there’s the obvious Jets connection – Keyshawn was on the Jets when the book was released. But more importantly, the Jets have a shot at being playoff-bound for the first time in five years. But with Kendall Wright sitting out for Tennessee on offense and Darrelle Revis stepping in for NY on defense, Mariota won’t have much to work with in the passing game. The following drive by Tennessee led to the end of the half.

The Titans recorded the second of their four first-half first downs on the subsequent possession, but following a punt, Fitzpatrick caught the Titans napping with a quick snap and a quick pass to Marshall, who was uncovered in the flat.

The offense and defense struggled equally in a 30-8 loss to the Jets.

On Brandon Marshall’s touchdown: “It looked like they (Tennessee) was scrambling a little bit”. Titans wide receivers don’t have 10 touchdowns combined. How we value and remember his 2015 season will be dictated by his performance over the next three games.

The first half of the game was pure domination in every phase of the game.

“We’re not a good enough team to overlook anybody”, Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick insisted. The defense was able to force a three-and-out on the following drive by the Titans. Chris Ivory ran for 101 yards on 22 carries, and Randy Bullock kicked three field goals. Jets WR Jeremy Kerley left the game with a calf injury in the second quarter but returned in the third quarter before exiting again….

Only Washington (6-7) is worse at minus-10, according to SportingCharts.com. Although their starting quarterback is done for the season, the Cowboys still have a number of play makers.

Mariota needs one touchdown pass to become the first Titan to throw for 20 in a season since Steve McNair in 2003. Fitzpatrick will throw for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in the game and will be a major difference maker for the Jets.

It’s a three horse race with only two spots available. No other Jet has more than Sheldon Richardson’s 3.5 sacks in 2015.

“We’re playing good football, but we still have a long way to go”, Pryor said. The Chiefs face the Ravens next followed by the Browns and the Raiders.

The Jets are a good defensive team, overall. Those two wins snapped a two-game losing streak and put the Jets right back into the postseason picture. With the way they’re playing now, it definitely seems possible.

The last time Chan Gailey was in the NFL, he was sacked as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills following the 2012 season and made a decision to retire from the league. “We were focused, we were locked in and we’ve got to continue to stay locked in throughout the rest of the season”.

The Jets looked out of it. A not ready for prime time team that couldn’t execute the proper plays for a victory. Both of these guys have been incredible this season and Marshall is now top ten in yards and top three in touchdowns, while Decker is top 24 in yards and top eight in touchdowns. That’s less than 1/3 of his targets caught. It was the second straight week in which Mariota scored an unusual touchdown.

Mularkey said linebacker Derrick Morgan had season-ending surgery Monday to fix his left shoulder, while running back Dexter McCluster will need season-ending surgery in the next day or two to fix a broken left wrist. In their first game under Mularkey (at New Orleans) they overcame a halftime deficit and won, something that had not happened since Mike Munchak was the one in charge. It would be robbery if Wilkerson doesn’t make a trip to Hawaii in 2016.

Darrelle Revis and the Jets have allowed 31 pass plays of at least 25 yards this season. The offense has gained only 23 such plays
