That one was tough to take. The Jets had the Packers on the ropes, but ultimately fell by a score of 31-24, dropping their record to 1-1. However, there are a couple of “wings” to hand out. Here they come:
DEMARIO DAVIS: Demario was around the football all game long for the Jets. He posted 5.5 tackles, and two sacks, which didn’t even describe his influence on this one. Demario Davis is quickly turning into a beast, and he is only going to get better. Jets’ fans will get to enjoy his growth and a player and a leader, and we are beginning to see it already.

ERIC DECKER: Despite the label of not being a number one receiver, Eric Decker played an excellent game before leaving with as Rex described it, a tight hamstring. Eric posted four catches for 63 yards and his first touchdown with the Jets, a 29 yard pass from Geno Smith. Decker has been everything that the Jets have asked for and more.

JEREMY KERLEY: In looking for a third player to give “wings” to, Jeremy Kerley came to mind. He made clutch receptions for first downs, and if it weren’t for the Sheldon Richardson time out, a clutch reception for a touchdown.
Who deserved wings from your perspective?
