Who Could the New York Jets Take in the 2015 Draft?

Folks, the season is just about over for the Jets. Sure, their 20-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday was impressive, but that victory still leaves the Jets at 2-8, which is currently good for dead last in the AFC East and a spot in the bottom five of the NFL. Even if the Jets were to win out, they would end the season at 8-8, which would probably leave them a good two wins out of the last Wild Card spot in a much-improved AFC. Rex Ryan is almost certainly going to be fired at year's end, there's still nothing resembling a permanent solution at quarterback, and the first “Fire John Idzik” billboards have just gone up in the vicinity of MetLife Stadium.

Things are just peachy besides that, though.

Ivory ran for eight yards down to the Steelers 30 then three more to get another first down. Chris Ivory gained eight more yards down to the 19 yard line on the next play but a false start moved them back five. Johnson got that back and more then Vick would get four as he slide for the first down on third down. Ivory got 12 more yards down to four yard line to make it first and goal to go. The drive would stall and Nick Folk would make a 23 yard field goal to open the scoring. To end the Steelers first drive, Jaiquawn Jarrett sacked Ben Roethlisberger.

New York Jets Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

By Mario Scipioni

The cake that is the New York Jets' victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday has its icing. Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

This award comes as no surprise to many, especially Jets fans. It seemed as if Jarrett was everywhere in Sunday's victory. The fourth-year safety had the best game of his young career with ten tackles, two interceptions, two passes defended, a sack, and a fumble recovery.

In a season full of turmoil, especially in the secondary, the Jets have been in need of someone to step up and bring a spark to the back end of the defense. Jarrett may have done that with his strong performance. His big game combined with reports of rookie safety Calvin Pryor being late to team meetings could end up meaning that Jarrett will take over as a full-time starter.

According to head coach Rex Ryan, Jarrett has proved to be impressive at practice, which translated into his three-takeaway performance. "Well, I just think he’s been doing a tremendous job and I see it on the practice field and the classroom, but I also see it on Sundays and that’s why he earned the starting spot this week," said Ryan. The chances of Jarrett getting more opportunities to start and develop is a big possibility. "I think it’s going to be hard to keep him out of that starting lineup," Ryan stated.

New York Jets: Keys to Victory Against Pittsburgh Steelers

November 7th, 2014 at 7:48 PM
By Mario Scipioni

Before the New York Jets head into a much needed bye week, they have business to take care of against the Pittsburgh Steelers. While the odds do not appear to be in their favor, the Jets can end their ugly losing streak as long as they accomplish a few tasks.

Bring down Big Ben: No one has been on a hotter streak than Ben Roethlisberger. In his last two games, he has thrown for 866 yards with 12 touchdowns and no interceptions. If the Jets want to avoid being hit where it hurts, they will need to bring a lot of pressure to Roethlisberger. Head coach Rex Ryan has faced Big Ben many times and knows how to rattle him. An ineffective Roethlisberger will take the Steelers’ passing game out and lift a huge burden off the Jets’ shoulders.

Stick to ground-and-pound: While the Steelers enter this game ranked 20th in pass defense, the Jets' offense is not ready to put on an aerial assault. They will need to stick to their guns and run the ball. Chris Ivory, who has been reliable all season, will have to carry most of the load in this game and put the Jets in favorable positions. In addition, the offense needs to allow Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell to perform the jobs they were signed to do. It is time for the Jets to unleash their three-headed monster in the backfield.
