Week 2: at Green Bay Packers
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Jets' combo of Chris Ivory (10/102/1 rushing) and Chris Johnson (13/68/0 rushing with 5/23/1 receiving) worked like a charm against the gassed Oakland D (New York held the ball for 34:50 last week, vs. Oaklands 25:10) - altogether the Jets had 34/212/1 rushing - it's all good in this phase of the game right now, Jets' fans. For those curious, Ivory played in 30-of-70 offensive snaps during Week 1, while Johnson was in on 33 offensive snaps - they are a true two-headed monster with almost a 50-50 time share right now.
The Packers' rush D ranked 25th in the NFL last season, averaging 125 rushing yards allowed per game, with 16 rushing scores given up over 16 games. Maurice Jones-Drew popped a long run of 40-yards for a TD against the Pack in the third preseason game, but after that the running game was damped down, and Oakland finished the game with 17/77/1 rushing as a team (Jones-Drew ended his time with the first team with 3/45/1 rushing). Seattle crushed the Packers' defensive front in Week One with 37/207/2 rushing during the Seahawks 36-16 win. Back to the drawing board in this phase of the game, Green Bay!
New York holds a big edge in this phase of the game despite traveling to Lambeau Field this week.
