Location: Cleveland Browns Stadium
Key Matchup: Braylon Edwards vs Eric Wright
Opponent Preview: There's a strong case being made that the Jets could be the team to beat in the AFC this year. A large part of that comes with incredible cast of additions to the team including LaDanian Tomlinson, Antonio Cromartie, Santonio Holmes, Jason Taylor, Brodney Pool, Vladimir Ducasse, and Kyle Wilson. Combining these new Jets with a near lockdown secondary featuring Darrelle Revis, and a fiery leader in Bart Scott at linebacker, the Jets will be a hard team to put down this season. If Mark Sanchez has a steady hand, they should go deep in the postseason.
Strategy: The only area of the Jets' defense that isn't flawless would have to be the defensive line. Shaun Ellis, Kris Jenkins and Mike DeVito have all had their injury concerns and, with the exception of DeVito, are getting up in age. Running the ball hard and early will be the key to success, throwing towards Revis is a death wish, and Cromartie is no easy defeat himself. Keeping the ball on the ground or using short checkdowns should move the chains consistently.
Results: New York 24, Cleveland 10
