Hill is coming off a relatively quiet Week 6 game against Pittsburgh in which he caught three balls for 46 yards, but could have turned that into a huge day had he not been overthrown by Geno Smith when wide open on what would have been a 77-yard touchdown. He's sure to see more downfield bombs this week from Smith against the Patriots, and stands to benefit from the potential absence of New England corner Aqib Talib (hip).
Hill got over his concussion in a hurry last week, and looked entirely free and easy, not limited by the ailment at all. He's going to have to continue living with the growing pains of a rookie quarterback, but is continually showing signs of developing into an excellent weapon in the deep passing game. The Jets need to make big-yardage plays, and Hill is about the only guy they can count on to make them.
