Week 9: vs New York Jets

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. As tough as the Jets are against opposing running backs on the ground, their secondary is very vulnerable. They allowed Kyle Orton to look like Jim Kelly last week (10/17 for 213 net yards passing, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -25 yards), and coughed up 20/37 for 260 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions to Tom Brady two games back (with one sack for -1 yard). The Jets are, by far, the most giving pass D in the NFL having recorded an enormous 22 passing TDs given up vs. a tiny one interception recorded this year (dead last in the NFL). Alex Smith has mostly moved the chains over the past two games, with over 85% completions vs. St. Louis (24/28 for 226 yards, zero TDs or interceptions, and two sacks taken for -8 yards last week), and 67.8% completions at San Diego (19/28 for 221 yards, one TD and zero interceptions, with three sacks taken for -10 yards). Fullback Anthony Sherman caught his lone TD throw over the past two weeks (two targets for 2/12/1 receiving at San Diego). Dwayne Bowe (13 targets for 11/148/0) and Travis Kelce (10 for 8/78/0) are the two receivers over 10 targets during the last two games. The giving Jets should allow Smith some TD passes this weekend (they do for everyone else), but it's hard to say which Chiefs besides Jamaal Charles (eight for 6/56/0 receiving over the past two weeks) may be in line for those TDs.
