Week 12 Recap

Posted on: November 30, 2009 5:11 pm


   So, the Jets win for the second time in their last 8 games, giving New York a 5-6 record, after their 17-6 win against the Carolina Panthers.

   I'm not sure if it was just rigged or a joke or if my boy Darrelle Revis is just this great. Steve Smith, WR, Carolina Panthers, 4x Pro-bowler.... you all aware of this guy, I'm not sure Jake Delhomme was yesterday, when he threw the ball to Revis just as many times as he did Smith. Smith finished with 2 receptions for, 2 yards , yes, no typo, 2 yards.

   Revis, along with Smith, caught a reception from Delhomme twice, but Revis actually even got more yards receiving that Smith this game. Revis had 2 interceptions for 67 yards, and a touchdown. Hey, looks like Delhomme has a new go-to-guy.

   Not that that wasn't a great performance by Revis, his best all season, but the Jets defense snapped out of their little struggle they had going for the past few weeks. It was just two weeks ago when they allowed the Patriots to pound them after they'd previously shut their offense out from touchdowns, and they also played weak against the Jaguars and Dolphins. They had started off with only 41 offensive points allowed in their first 4 games, struggled a bit with Miami, and then played well against the Bills and shut out Oakland, and then all hell broke loose.

   Believe it or not, the Jets are still in the playoff hunt. The Jets have 2 winnable games coming up (Bills, Buccaneers), but a challenging end (Falcons, Colts, Bengals). Next week in Revis Island... Michael Clayton. My predictions for Clayton, 21 yards and 3 receptions... Revis 1 interception. Generous enough after Smith's amazing game?

Week 12 Recap

I have to give you credit J-Mall, you were all talk about him since Day 1.

I don't think we have a playoff spot, we certainly do have a chance, but Baltimore, Jacksonville, Miami and Pittsburgh... all four teams I don't think we can surpass. We do have 2 wins coming up, possibly 3, but 2 losses at the end if you go with my projections. Those losses being of Bengals and Colts match-ups. But anything is possible, so let's keep our hopes up.

The greatest thing about Revis is that he basically takes your No. 1 receiver out of the game like you said, even if his name is Randy Moss, or Andre Johnson, or whoever.

All I can say is, we can't shit for granted anymore, our previous Bills game was awful, let's rebound Thursday.

Week 12 Recap


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Darrelle Revis got the Jets' defense in the end zone for the first time this season and helped New York keep its slim playoff hopes alive.

Revis returned one of the Jets' four interceptions 67 yards for a touchdown and New York overcame an injury scare to quarterback Mark Sanchez before holding on to beat the Carolina Panthers 17-6 on Sunday.

Thomas Jones had a 3-yard touchdown run as the Jets (5-6) won at home for the first time since beating Tennessee in Week 3, sending the Panthers (4-7) to their second straight loss.

Carolina had a chance late to make it a one-score game, but Dwayne Jarrett's 28-yard touchdown catch was wiped off the scoreboard when he was called for offensive pass interference. Kerry Rhodes, demoted in favor of Eric Smith, picked off Jake Delhomme on the next play for his second interception of the game to all but seal the win.

It didn't come without some tense moments, though. With the Jets leading 14-3, Sanchez scrambled to the right sideline on first-and-10 from New York's 46 and was tackled out of bounds by Richard Marshall after an 8-yard gain.

He stayed down for a few moments as the trainers checked out his left knee. Helped to the sideline, Sanchez put very little weight on the leg. He sat on a table, where he flexed his leg and then put a brace on. Sanchez was replaced by Kellen Clemens for the four plays, but came back on the next offensive series to cheers from the Meadowlands crowd.

On his first throw after returning, Sanchez was intercepted by Chris Gamble on a pass intended for Braylon Edwards. It appeared Carolina had cashed in on the turnover with a touchdown when Steve Smith came down with a 10-yard catch in the end zone, but Jets coach Rex Ryan challenged the call.

After a video review, the call was reversed. Referee Jerome Boger said Smith didn't have possession when he went out of bounds in the back of the end zone. It turned out to be a huge call because after another incompletion, the Panthers settled for a 28-yard field goal by John Kasay to make it 14-6 with 11:45 left.

Jay Feely, who missed from 48 yards earlier, kicked one from 47 yards with 3:39 remaining to give the Jets a 17-6 lead.

Sanchez finished 13 of 17 for 154 yards and the interception, while Delhomme was 14 of 34 for 130 yards and the four INTs. The Jets also held DeAngelo Williams to 40 yards rushing on 16 carries.

Revis gave the Jets a 7-0 lead on a flukey play midway through the first quarter. After converting three third downs on their opening drive, the Panthers had another shot on third-and-9 from the Jets 39. But Delhomme's pass deflected off Smith's lower leg while not paying attention, and into the hands of Revis, who had a clear path to the end zone.

Kasay kicked a 40-yard field goal to make it 7-3 with 10:11 left in the first half.

Revis had his second interception of the game late in the first half, but the Jets couldn't capitalize as Shonn Greene fumbled in Panthers territory and Carolina's Jon Beason recovered.

The Jets got the ball right back three plays later when Rhodes intercepted Delhomme. This time, New York took advantage of the turnover on Jones' 3-yard touchdown run. After Edwards' nifty 9-yard sideline catch put the ball on the 3, Jones took the handoff and went up the middle, stepped to his left and spun his way to the goal line before falling into the end zone to make it 14-3 with 28 seconds left.

The Jets came out in the second half and drove down the field. But they turned the ball over when Dustin Keller had a 16-yard catch and tried to stretch over the goal line but fumbled, stripped by Chris Harris. Richard Marshall recovered in the end zone for a touchback.
