The Jets Defense holds The Jaguars to just 3 points
In what appears to be a quarterback friendlier league each year, a strong defense is a necessity. The Jets defense shined Sunday when they held the very talented running back Maurice Jones-Drew to zero touchdowns and less than 90 yards rushing.
They punished Luke McCown when he made bad reads and caused the young quarterback to cough up the ball four times! It’s no secret that Darrelle Revis is a No. 1 lockdown corner, but if Antonio Cromartie could have a showing like Week 2 every week, this defense will cruise to the No. 1 spot.
I understand it's Week 2, but the Jet’s defense has already recorded five sacks and five interceptions. With a veteran linebacking corps that consists of Bart Scott and Calvin Pace, the only thing standing in the way of this defense is themselves, look to Week 3 where the run defense can be challenged again by Oakland’s Darren McFadden.
