GROUND AND POUND GETS GOING

The Jets are not going to dominate anybody with a barrage of down the field passes. Despite Tony Sparano’s talk about the importance of it, that is not how the Jets are going to win. They are going to win with methodical drives on offense, grounding out the yards and limiting mistakes. That will start with an effective running attack. The offensive line must win the battle up front, and get Shonn Greene and company going. They weren’t effective during the preseason, averaging 3.9 yards per carry. That is not going to cut it. The Jets need to control the clock with a consistent average of over 4 yards per carry. That will make the rest of this offense happen.

WILL STEVE JOHNSON PLAY?

Steve Johnson has had as much success as anybody in the NFL against Darrelle Revis, and last season became the first Bills wide receiver to post back to back 1,000 yard seasons. He has been questionable all week. It will be a big blow to the Bills offense if he does not play. If he does play, and can play effectively, Darrelle will have all he can handle keeping him down. This is another key matchup in determining the outcome tomorrow.
