News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Well, something still works for the Jets offense. Ivory is running so hard that even the worst QB play in the league can't keep him down. He's only an upside flex or adequate RB2 start, but until the numbers taper off, keep riding Ivory.

Week 9: at Kansas City Chiefs

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Jets will send Michael Vick into the grinder this week as their new starting quarterback, but he has shown little to inspire confidence in the way of an instant upgrade for New York (46.4% completions this year, with zero TDs and one interception thrown). This may mean a healthy dose of carries for lead back Chris Ivory (34/150/3 rushing and 4/18/0 receiving over the past two games). Change of pace options Bilal Powell (6/35/1 rushing and 1/12/0 receiving) and Chris Johnson (15/68/0 rushing and 4/32/0 receiving during the past two contests) may seen an uptick in their touches as well. However, this weekend the Jets' offense has to operate within deafening Arrowhead Stadium - and the Chiefs know they can stack the box and rush Vick effectively at home. There may be very little in the way of running room (St. Louis managed 19/84/0 rushing last week while Austin Davis took seven sacks for -44 yards at Arrowhead). Advantage, Kansas City.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs DEN (8 / 7 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Ivory ran with tenacity, but his offensive line was unable to open any running lanes. Denver stacked the box and put the onus on Smith and his receivers. Ivory received all of New York's red zone carries, which resulted in minimal gains, but these runs set-up Smith's touchdown passes. Despite receiving a more prominent pass catching role during the last few weeks, Ivory was only targeted twice. He turned one of his targets into a 14 yard gain on a quick screen.

2014 Week 7 vs NE (21 / 107 / 1 rush, 4 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)

Chris Ivory was a complete non-factor last week against Denver, but bounced back in a big-way against New England. New York's offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage and New England's Front 7 was unable to handle Ivory's physical running style. Ivory appeared in nearly half of New York's offensive sets and scored New York's first touchdown. Midway through the third quarter, Ivory scored from New England's 1-yard line. Ivory ran off left tackle, was initially stopped, but dove over defenders for the score. Ivory was New York's offense and ran ahead of Chris Johnson for the fifth straight week.

2014 Week 8 vs BUF (13 / 43 / 2 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Chris Ivory had a difficult time establishing a rhythm against Buffalo's stout run defense, but was able to cash in on two short touchdown runs during the second quarter. Both touchdowns occurred when ivory ran off left tackle and smashed his way into the end zone. Yards were not easy to come by and Smith's error-prone first quarter put the offense in an offense a deep hole.
