Tomorrow is the second of a two game road trip for the Jets, before returning to MetLife Stadium next week. The “Road to MetLife Stadium” continues into week 12. Rex Ryan, Geno Smith, and the rest of beloved New York Jets are set to take on, Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, and the rest of the defending Super Bowl champs.
Both of these squads are coming off of losses last week. I don’t think we need to revisit the Jets’ loss, as I am just getting over being ill. The Ravens lost in overtime to the Bears last week by a score of 23-20, which included the extended weather delay.
Let’s take a look at the history between these two teams:
The Ravens have dominated this series, winning seven out of the eight games played, which includes a streak of the last seven straight. Coach Ryan is 0-2 against the Ravens. Doesn’t it seem like the Jets have played the Ravens more than twice in the Rex era, or is it just me? Obviously it’s not true, just the two meetings have been all, but it sure seems like more.
Looking ahead to the game tomorrow, we know it’s going to be rough sledding for Ray Rice and company. The Jets allow only 73.2 yards per game on the ground, far and away the best in the NFL. This is certainly not the week to look for big numbers from Ray Rice on your fantasy teams, that’s for sure.
Geno Smith is close to the record books, at least as far as the Jets are concerned. He needs 345 passing yards to post the most passing yards by a rookie quarterback in team history. Who would he be passing to reach this mark? You guessed it, our old friend, Mark Sanchez. Sorry, had to bring up his name just once more.
The Jets will be looking to keep the pass rush nice and warm on Sunday. Mo Wilkerson has recorded sacks in five out of the past six games. Our all world lineman will be looking to continue his dominance. Calvin Pace has found the fountain of youth of late, looking for a third straight game with a sack.
It should be a good one tomorrow.
