The Jets are trying to get as much out of their new acquisition as they can, using Harvin on kickoff returns.

Week 12: at Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Last time these teams met, Geno Smith imploded in the early going (2/8 for five yards passing, three interceptions, and zero TDs) and was benched - it turned out to be a permanent benching - for Michael Vick (18/36 for 153 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -21 yards). Neither quarterback had much luck against the Buffalo secondary back in Week 8. Since then, however, Vick has knocked the rust off his passing arm and also knocked off the heavily favored Steelers with 10/18 for 132 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -7 yards vs. Pittsburgh during Week 10. He added 8/39/0 rushing to the team effort, while funneling the football to Jace Amaro (five targets for 2/6/1 receiving), Percy Harvin (five for 3/23/0) and Eric Decker (four for 3/24/0) most often - T.J. Graham caught the other TD from Vick two weeks ago (one target for 1/67/1 receiving). Though he's not throwing the football like Andrew Luck, Vick has been effective when he puts the football up of late. The Bills' pass D is ranked first in the NFL with 39 sacks generated to date (almost four sacks per game on average), which helps keep their average net passing yards low (222.6, seventh-best in that category in the league). The Bills have allowed 14 TD passes, but they have 12 interceptions generated (tied for sixth in the NFL). Meanwhile, the Jets have allowed 29 sacks to date (25th-ranked in the NFL in this category) while Vick has thrown just one interception (against Buffalo the last time he saw them). Last week, Buffalo sacked Ryan Tannehill five times for -35 yards on the way to 26/34 for 205 net yards passing allowed, with two passing TDs given up. This is a tough matchup for Vick, Harvin, Amaro and Decker.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs KC (13 / 11 / 129 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)

Percy Harvin was targeted a team high 13 times as Michael Vick clearly wanted to feed him the ball. Harvin was mainly utilized as a gadget player near the line of scrimmage, but received a few deep targets. Harvin was deployed on a variety of short, intermediate, and vertical routes, showcasing his ability to make plays all over the field. Despite his lofty yardage total, only 19 of Harvin's 137 total yards occurred during the first half. Harvin didn't start making play until the second half. Midway through the third quarter, Vick went to Harvin on three straight plays on quick slant routes. Harvin caught all three passes near the line of scrimmage and accelerated into the open field for gains of 9, 9, and 7 yards, respectively. New York trailed by 14 points during the fourth quarter, but Harvin stepped up and made plays as a deep threat. Midway through the fourth quarter, Harvin ran a deep post route, jumped over Sean Smith and hauled in a 43-yard reception. His reception drew a huge reaction from New York's sideline and clearly gave a boost to the offense.d

2014 Week 10 vs PIT (5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec, 6 / 33 / 0 rush)

For the second straight week, Harvin was the key cog in New York's offense. Harvin lined up in the slot, on the outside, and even lined up in the backfield as a running back. Harvin expressed a desire to be utilized as a deep threat in New York's offense, but given the game flow, Harvin wasn't asked to make any plays downfield. New York's offense staked itself to a 17-0 first quarter lead, so Harvin made the majority of his plays within a few yards of the line of scrimmage. Harvin lined up in a single-back formation took hand offs through the game. Harvin was once again utilized on special teams, but failed to generate any big plays.
