Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE
With most of the Jets' efforts focused on stopping Reggie Wayne, the Jets are probably going to roll the dice on Kyle Wilson to hold his own dealing with Donnie Avery and T.J. Hilton.
Both players have shown flashes, but they have been largely inconsistent. Neither player demands a lot of coverage, and the Jets should not give it to them.
They drafted Kyle Wilson in the first round for a reason, and he needs to be able to take care of these two receivers like he dealt with Kevin Walter on Monday night.
If Wilson turns in another poor performance like he did against the 49ers, the Jets defense will be on its heels trying to deal with Wayne and Avery/Hilton. As a result, every other aspect of the defense, including the run defense, will falter.
Wilson's role may not seem significant on the surface, but his ability to shut down the Colts second and third receivers will be crucial.
