1.

Darrelle Revis looks to have a serious injury. In the second half, Revis went down with a non-contact left knee injury. Non-contact injuries such as this are often serious, and hard to watch, with Darrelle Revis visibly wincing in pain before gingerly walking off the field. Later in the half the Jets cornerback would be carted into the locker room and ruled out for the rest of the contest. This could be serious trouble for a struggling New York Jets defense as Revis is far and above the best player on the team. While no information has been made on the specifics of the injury, we can only hope it a sprain or pull and not something more serious like an ACL tear.

The absence of Dustin Keller is severely hampering the Jets offense. Without the security blanket provided by his talented tight end Mark Sanchez is forced to hold the ball longer, relying on his receivers to beat coverage on the outside. Jeff Cumberland has done nothing to impress and even quit on a route in the red zone that resulted in an interception. Cumberland stopped his route instead of cutting over the middle, allowing his defender to backpedal into what should of been a wide open window for Stephen Hill, resulting in a leaping interception and killing the Jets red zone opportunity. The offense needs Keller back as soon as possible to help extend drives and instill confidence early for a struggling Mark Sanchez.

3.

Santonio Holmes had a good game, going over 100 yards receiving for the first time since 2010. His 9 receptions and 147 yards led the gang green receiving corps and provided a reliable target for Sanchez all day long. Holmes caught the pass the got the Jets into range for what was the game winning field goal, refusing to quit on the route as the defense committed a holding penalty against him during the play. Holmes also showed toughness, going over the middle to make tough catches in traffic to move the chains on critical downs. Stephen Hill aggravated his nagging hamstring injury and was held without a catch for the second straight week, a big disappointment for the Jets 2nd round draft pick.
