After a disappointing effort last week against a horrendous Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line, the Jets were finally able to put some pressure on Brady, even if it took about half the game to start getting after him.
The Jets did not utilize many blitzes, relying on their athletic lineman to get pressure on their own. Initially, the plan backfired in large part because they were unable to penetrate a solid offensive line for the Patriots (that was without their center, Dan Connolly).
However, as the game wore on, the Jets were able to wear down the Patriots' front and wound up sacking Brady four times (including a strip-sack).
While Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson did most of the work in the pass-rushing department, Quinton Coples was completely ineffective. He is clearly still struggling through his surgically repaired ankle and is unable to convert speed to power to create leverage.
The Jets are dearly missing the edge pressure brought from Antwan Barnes, but they can take solace in knowing that they can still get some interior pressure from their two stud defensive ends.
