New York Jets and Green Bay Packers will play for the second week of NFL 2014 regular season. The New York Jets will certainly have their job cut out for them to recuperate from an 8-8 season. While a lot of anticipate the Jets have a somewhat hard timetable this year, it’s not as hard when you take into account all the upgrades they have actually made to the team. Many significantly, RB Chris Johnson will be the difference-maker for the Jets utilizing his legs to defeat challengers.
The New York Jets fell short of the playoffs in 2013. While they made a couple of vital additions, it’s fair to ponder whether they have actually absolutely placed themselves ready to contend for a playoff place.
Geno Smith (or possibly Michael Vick) will in fact have at least one top quality receiver to target with Eric Decker on the area, yet besides Decker and Jeremy Kerley, there are still considerable questions at wide receiver.
Other than Decker, most of the Jets’ offseason techniques were a clean. Authorizing Dimitri Patterson is a good move in response to releasing Antonio Cromartie, and while the Jets could be far better off for going on from Cromartie, there are still considerable concerns for the Jets in the second. They additionally shed right take on Austin Howard, yet signed Breno Giacomini to replace him.
It’s essential that the Jets not simply preserve the status quo, but improve upon last season in order to make certain that Rex Ryan remains the head instructor. How will they do?
Place a world-class quarterback up against a fantastic defensive coach and the pieces are in area for a superior chess match. Only one various other time as a starter has Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers squared off with a Rex Ryan-coached defense. That game ended with neither team racking up a touchdown as the Green Bay Packers gained 9-0 back in 2010. In that competition, Rodgers finished 44.1 percent of his passes, the most affordable percent of his job as a starter.
The Jets obtained the Packers at a happy times, too. The Packers have actually gradually lost tools in the passing game, and although they still showcase Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, it genuinely hasn’t mattered. Rodgers is still one of the best quarterbacks at spreading the sphere around to all his receivers– six receivers had more than 30 functions in 2013, and 5 in 2012.
The Packers’ protection, however, has been just one of the worst in the organization two of the past 3 years, and rated in all-time low 10 in both total protection and scoring defense in 2013. They gave up 27 points or more in eight of their last 10 games of the season. This could be a high-scoring event, but in that case the team with the better quarterback will constantly have the advantage.
