David Harris: B
This was a very solid, workmanlike performance from Harris, who finished with six solo tackles. He was not victimized in coverage, which is a good sign for a player who was so weak in that area a year ago.
Harris appears to be over whatever injury or distraction made him so ineffective a year ago. He is back to playing like one of the better inside linebackers in the league.
Demario Davis: A
Demario Davis was all over the field, showing great burst when shooting gaps and remaining stout in coverage against the Titans' tight ends and running backs. With eight solo tackles, including one for a loss, Davis may be the best linebacker on the roster in only his second season.
Calvin Pace: A-
Pace has quietly put in the best start to a season he's had in New York. After three straight solid performances, he added another sack to his tally and was terrific setting the edge in the run game.
Calvin Pace is not exactly a terror on the edge, but he is a quality, well-rounded linebacker. He's making the Jets look smart for bringing him back.
Quinton Coples: C
Coples is showing a lot of grit by playing in an NFL game just barely over a month after having surgery on his ankle, but he is clearly not the same player he was before the injury. Coples can run around without much hindrance, but he struggles when converting speed to power.
Coples is not a liability on the field, but bringing him back to full capacity continues to be a work in progress.
Antwan Barnes: B
Barnes has proven to be a nice addition as a rotational pass-rusher, adding another sack to his total. The Jets' pass rush was mostly ineffective all afternoon with the exception of Barnes, who now gets to spend more time resting on the sideline with Coples back in the fold.
Garrett McIntyre: D
McIntyre recorded no defensive stats but did get called for a costly unnecessary roughness penalty.
