Jets News: Chris Ivory puts on a clinic against Dolphins


Running back Chris Ivory proved to be an x-factor for the Jets as he put on an absolute clinic against the Dolphins.

It’s no secret that the Jets will win plenty of football games this season if they stick to what they know works. When the Jets aren’t afraid to take shots down the field, establish a potent ground game and allow their defense to wreak havoc against opponents, trust me when I say, they will definitely have quite the turnaround season in 2015.

With their big 27-14 win over the Dolphins, the Jets now head into their bye week at 3-1 and must be feeling pretty good about themselves. They haven’t played perfect football yet as they drew many unnecessary penalties and had some consistency issues but at the end of the day, a win is a win in my book.

Here are some of the top articles written about Gang Green from across the internet including my insight. Enjoy!

Jets already have a winning blueprint: His name is Chris Ivory by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"With each broken tackle, Ivory reminded everyone he’s the key to the offense, not and not . You saw what happened last week, when Ivory stood on the sideline in uniform, nursing a strained quadriceps. Ryan Fitzpatrick Brandon Marshall"

Ivory will no doubt be dominating all the sports newspapers across the country this week due to the incredible clinic he put up against the Dolphins. Ivory totaled 166 rushing yards on 29 attempts and a touchdown. The Dolphins’ defense couldn’t contain his power running as he was truly a force to be reckoned with.

In addition to giving Jets fans much reason to smile about with his efforts, fantasy owners of Ivory will be waking up Monday morning with an even bigger smile heading into the final game of Week 4 on Monday Night Football. For those that didn’t start Ivory, well, we here at The Jet Press send our apologies.

David Harris, Leonard Williams injured in Jets’ win over Dolphins by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"The biggest question surrounds Williams, who wasn’t around after the game. If he can’t play in two weeks against the Washington Redskins, the Jets have a decent replacement — a fellow by the name of , whose four-game drug suspension ends Monday. Sheldon Richardson"

Of course in the game of pro football, injuries are everywhere. The Jets didn’t leave London without a few notable injuries but luckily the bye week couldn’t have come at a more perfect time to rest up. Williams should be okay heading into Week 6 and should be able to platoon nicely with the returning Sheldon Richardson from suspension.

No Jet Lag in 27-14 Win over Miami: 9 Observations by Randy Lange (

"When last the Jets played , they recorded five sacks in the fourth quarter of last season’s finale at Miami — their most in any quarter since 1988. They kept the pressure coming, not in huge early sack numbers (three for 31 yards) but in constant presence in the pocket. Ryan Tannehill"

Was it just me or did the Dolphins look like one of the worst teams in the NFL? Nothing went in their favor as players looked lifeless and just gave it up after the first half. Head coach Joe Philbin must be one worried individual on the way home wondering if he’ll have a job at the end of the week.

With the bye week also coming up for the Dolphins, there is a high probability some coaching staff changes will occur. Most NFL teams wait until around their bye week for such moves in an effort to put the direction of a season in a better direction before it gets too late. For the Dolphins, their season might already be over based on how they’ve been playing during the first quarter of the season.

New York Jets answer London calling against Miami Dolphins by Nick Ziegler (

"The Dolphins’ offense continued to be anemic, as they would go on to have three consecutive three-and-outs, which the Jets would capitalize on once with a 48-yard field goal by Folk. Miami would finally get on the board in the second quarter with some help from the Jets’ secondary."

This was definitely an eerie situation for the Jets heading into this AFC East rivalry game since it was setup just like the Philadelphia Eagles game from the week before in which Gang Green got handed their first loss of the season.

It as great to see the Jets course correct most of their issues from the previous week and come out with a boom. Overall, the Jets took care of business and will only continue to tweak and master things until it all comes together to take matters into the next level.
