Despite the New York Jets' poor performance in Week 1, they have bounced back into a three-game winning streak, defeating all three of their division rivals consecutively.

The scary thing is that the Jets have been doing all of this without Darrelle Revis, Santonio Holmes, and Calvin Pace.

Holmes will start his career with the Jets in Week 5 after serving his four-game drug suspension, while Revis (hamstring) and Pace (foot) both practiced on Wednesday, with expectations to return Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings

The return of these three players will help the New York Jets be even sharper on the field. Holmes has really excited Rex Ryan and the Jets organization with the skills that he exhibited during training camp.

Holmes will now be the Jets' No. 1 receiver and a re-occurring target for Mark Sanchez. With this extra weapon added to their progressing offense, the Jets are an extremely dangerous team to face.

On defense, the return of Darrelle Revis, who is arguably the most dominant cornerback in the NFL, will make this defense nearly impossible to score on.  Without Revis the Jets secondary has stepped up tremendously, making the plays necessary to win football games.  

Calvin Pace will most likely be making his 2010 debut after breaking his foot in the third preseason game. The return of Pace will help relieve Jason Taylor of playing so much, and add another terrifying blitz threat.

The New York Jets are off to an outstanding start to the season and look to continue this streak of dominance with their key players returning Monday Night.
