Offense Looking Good Going into Sunday Night Matchup

What would you have said if someone told you before last week’s game that Mark Sanchez was going to outplay Tom Brady?

You probably would have thought they were crazy, but that’s exactly what happened this past Sunday, as the Jets prevailed over their division rivals 28-14.

Sanchez threw for 220 yards, as he completed 21 of 30 passes with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Brady on the other hand, threw for slightly more yardage but had two interceptions and fumbled the ball once.

The big news from this game however, is that Darrelle Revis will miss 1-2 weeks due to a strained hamstring. It had been bothering him before – he was listed as probable before the game – but he hurt it again on what is so far the catch of the year by Randy Moss. He did not return to the game.

(If you get Jim Nantz that excited you know you did something good)

The Jets were obviously happy with this win over the reining division champs. The guy who seemed to be the happiest about it – on and off the field – was wide receiver Braylon Edwards. After he scored the Jets’ first touchdown of the season, he was flagged for excessive celebration.

(Oh you mad cuz I’m stylin’ on you?)

And then later the next night, Edwards was arrested for a DWI. Apparently he likes to party, because he blew a 0.16 – twice the legal limit. What I don’t understand is how you can possibly get arrested for drunken driving in the city that has an endless amount of taxi cabs for you to use, especially when you have two of your teammates with you.

(And just for fun, Braylon Edwards’ mugshot)

The good news for Jets fans is that Edwards will play against the Dolphins, but he will not start. The Jets’ wide receivers are last in the NFL in receiving yards, so they need all the help they can get until Santonio Holmes comes back.

The Revis injury means Antonio Cromartie is going to be covering Dolphins’ star wide receiver Brandon Marshall in their next game. These two have faced each other before when Cromartie was in San Diego and Marshall was in Denver. Last year, in the two matchups between the Chargers and Broncos, Marshall didn’t really have an impact in either game. The Dolphins already have a great running game (but with a case of fumblitis right now), so the Jets don’t want to give them any help in the passing game.
