It was a lackluster performance yesterday as the Jets fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 19-6. The Jets fell back to .500 with a 3-3 record. Let’s see who earned their wings this week:

JEFF CUMBERLAND: Despite the conservative game plan, Cumberland proved to be a weapon once again for Geno Smith. His touchdown streak ended at two games, but he still posted four receptions for 59 yards. He is going to be a big part of the attack in the absence of Kellen Winslow, and he started again yesterday.

DAVID HARRIS: Old Man Harris showed that although he has been around since the days of Eric Mangini, he is not done yet. He continued his moniker of tackling machine by posting eight tackles, six solo, and even was in the backfield for a sack. It was a strong game for Harris yesterday.

CLYDE GATES: Yes, Clyde Gates. He finally performed like a football player yesterday. He caught five passes for 36 yards, and returned kicks well also. He ran back two kickoffs for 28 yards per return. Clyde also didn’t screw anything up yesterday, so I thought I would reward him.
