The defense looks solid. The front seven played well, except for the occasional Cam Newton scramble Carolina was held in check on the ground. The defense looked especially fierce when utilizing a four man defense line, both stuffing runs and providing pressure on the quarterback.  The inside pressure provided by Muhammed Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis up the middle was something not seen the last few years and an encouraging sign for the line backing corps as they should be able to roam more freely than in years past.

 

 

 

 

 

The defensive backs played well and Laron Landry looked just plain mean in the middle of the field, making his presence well known with Carolina wide receivers and running backs. The New York Jets defense looks faster and stronger than in previous years and when combined with the coaching of Rex Ryan this squad could really be something special come this fall.
