Today's Jets game doesn't mean much for playoff positioning, as New York will only bump up from the sixth to fifth seed following a win and Steelers and Ravens losses, but if the Jets are going to win, they will need to do so without LaDainian Tomlinson, Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.

This provides a major opportunity for Drew Coleman, Marquice Cole and rookie Kyle Wilson at the corner position.

Dwight Lowery figures to stay at safety, where he has been making plays recently.

Without Tomlinson, Joe McKnight figures to get a lot of carries.  Perhaps he can break out the way Greene did at the end of last season.

It remains to be seen how much Mark Sanchez will play today in what figures to be a wacky preseason style game at the Meadowlands. 

James Ihedibo and Damien Woody are out, while Eric Smith, Trevor Pryce and Shaun Ellis are listed as questionable and probably won't play.
