The New York Jets lost 31-24 to the Green Bay Packers yesterday in Lambaeu Field. A score that could of been different, if not for a late fourth quarter timeout called by Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. On the play, Geno Smith threw a Touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley that would of tied the score at 31, and would of put the Jets right back into the game.

The NFL rule states, "The Referee shall suspend play while the ball is dead and declare a charge team timeout upon the request for a timeout by the head coach or any player to any official". Rex Ryan was quoted after the game in his post game press conference saying, "I didn't call it, but clearly somebody called it. Obviously if Marty sees something , it's an important call, and we want to make sure we are in the right call in that situation." The side judge clearly was unable to pinpoint what coach or player did call the timeout, but it is hard to believe he couldn't decipher Rex Ryan's voice while standing right behind him on the play. ind h in

New York Jets: Keys to Victory Against Green Bay Packers

By Mario Scipioni

After a big week one victory, the New York Jets head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. This is a game that many say will be a difficult one for the Jets. A lot will have to be done to leave Green Bay with a win.

Stay away from penalties: Last week, the Jets saw just how costly penalties can be. They had penalties take them out of great scoring situations and give the Oakland Raiders opportunities to stay in the game. The Packers are a much better team than the Raiders and will be able to capitalize off of penalties. Staying disciplined will be very important in winning this game.

Bring the pressure: From weeks two through seven, the Jets will face a lineup of some of the NFL's best quarterbacks. This week, it's Aaron Rodgers, who some consider the best quarterback in the game right now. It will be absolutely necessary to get to Rodgers and bring a lot of pressure. If they can blitz well and keep Rodgers from throwing the ball and force him to make risky decisions, the Packers will have to rely on Eddie Lacy and their rushing attack, which the Jets should be able to handle.

Flashback Friday: New York Jets’ 20-16 Victory Over Green Bay Packers in 2000

September 12th, 2014 at 5:58 PM
By Mario Scipioni

It was the first season of the new millennium, and the New York Jets began a new era in their franchise's history. After an active offseason which included the hiring of new head coach Al Groh, the trading of star wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and four first-round draft picks, the team was ready to open their season against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

After a disappointing 8-8 season in 1999, there was confusion as to whether or not 2000 would be a step forward or backward. Quarterback Vinny Testaverde was making his first start since suffering a season-ending injury in the previous season's opener. Green Bay struck first on a four-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre to Tyrone Davis nearly five and a half minutes into the game, but the Jets would match that later in the quarter on a Curtis Martin two-yard touchdown run. Before halftime, both teams exchanged field goals to make it a 10-10 game.

The Jets did a good job of staying in the game and keeping it close. With minutes left to go in the game, Testaverde led the offense on what would end up being the game-winning drive resulting in a three-yard touchdown pass to Martin. However, the Packers were driving and looking to pull off a comeback, but safety Victor Green would seal a victory by intercepting a pass in the redzone with 1:14 left to go in the game. Two kneel downs by Testaverde would run the clock out and give the Jets a 20-16 victory to start the season.

Dee Milliner Probable to Play for New York Jets, Won’t Start Vs. Green Bay Packers

September 12th, 2014 at 4:13 PM
By Doug Rush

It took almost a month to get Dee Milliner back from the high ankle sprain he suffered back on August 10 when the New York Jets were in training camp.

Milliner missed the entirety of the team's preseason games and also missed the team's Week 1 19-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders, but this time, he'll be back on the field for the Jets as Milliner is listed as probable and will likely play for them on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

As Costello mentioned, Milliner likely won't start for the team against Green Bay at Lembeau Field, Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will likely be starting again for the Jets like they did last week against the Raiders.

The Jets have had a bit of a makeshift secondary this summer and into the regular season due to injuries and other events; Milliner's ankle sprain, Dexter McDougle tearing his ACL, Leon McFadden being cut, Dimitri Patterson going AWOL, suspended and then released; all of which lead to Allen being switched from safety to cornerback.
