Houston offense vs. Jets Defense
This is a mismatch for the Jets in every single way. The Texans QB, Matt Schaub, is a smart player who doesn't make a lot of mistakes. He takes his chances when they are there and usually makes the most of them. This is an offensive line that run blocks and pass blocks as well as any in the NFL. The running game features probably the best running back in the league in Arian Foster, and his backup Ben Tate could probably start on 10 other teams in the league. They have one of the great wide receivers in the league in Andre Johnson. He is big, fast and has great hands. kEVIN wALTER IS A SOLID SECOND OPTION ON THE OTHER SIDE. oWEN dANIELS IS A very good tight end who can beat you up and down the seams. this offense is loaded at every position. The way the Jets defense has played up to this point this year, this is a disaster of a matchup. The jets have got to find a way to stop the run or this game will very much be like the 49ers game from the week before.
This is a mismatch for the Jets as WELL. mARK sANCHEZ, OUTSIDE OF THE LAST FEW MINUTES OF THE mIAMI GAME, HAS NOT BEEN GOOD THE LAST 3 WEEKS AND IS NOW UNDER 50 PERCENT COMPLETION FOR THE YEAR, WHICH IS COMPLETELY INEXCUSABLE. TO BE FAIR, THERE IS NOT ONE LEGITIMATE OFFENSIVE THREAT ON THE OFFENSE FOR THE JETS RIGHT NOW. sHONNE gREENE HAS SIMPLY BEEN AWFUL. iT'S TIME FOR jOE Mcknight and Bilal Powell to start seeing the ball more. The Jets starting wideouts are going to be chaz schilens and jeremy kerley, with santonio holmes now out for the year. no one seems to know if dustin keller is going to play this week. Stephen hill doesn't seem to be coming back either. right now, this offense doesn't scare anyone.
which is all not good because the texans come in with a defense as good as anyones in the nfl. led by stud defensive tackle J.J. Watt, who is off to a flying start this year with 7.5 sacks. The linebackers are led by the intense and very fast brian cushing. Brady James is the other middle linebacker in the 3-4 scheme run by wade phillips. the defensive backfield includes cornerback johnathan joseph, who many consider to now be the best cover corner in football since Darrelle Revis went out for the year. The Texans are fast, strong and active. they fly to the ball. they get after the qb well. this is really a nightmare matchup for the jets offense with the way they've been playing lately.
