General News (Tue Oct 21): officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.

Week 8: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Geno Smith avoided making 'the big mistake(s)' last week, with 20/34 for 226 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (he did fumble once, but the Jets retained possession). He has two straight games with more TD passes than turnovers, which is helping open up the running game for Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson (teams have to respect the Jets' passing game at least a little as of Week 8). The usual suspects saw Smith's passes last week; seven targets for 4/65/0 receiving went to Eric Decker, four for 3/50/1 landed in Jeff Cumberland's arms; five for 2/29/0 went to Jeremy Kerley; and five for 3/22/0 went to Jace Amaro. The Jets aren't hard to predict, but at least Smith did enough to scare the Patriots' fans last week. The Bills' pass D is ranked first in the NFL with 24 sacks, while the Jets have given up 18 (tied for 25th in the NFL) - it's a fair bet that Smith will have guys in his face often during the game in New York this weekend. Buffalo averages 247.6 net passing yards given up per game, with 12 passing TDs given up vs. eight interceptions generated so far (tied for third in the NFL). This is an attacking, gambling secondary and front seven. Teddy Bridgewater was sacked five times for -39 yards and intercepted twice last weekend (15/26 for 118 yards passing and one TD thrown) - Tom Brady bombed this unit for 27/37 yielding 346 net passing yards, four TDs and zero interceptions two weeks ago, while being sacked twice for -15 yards. Smith is in for a tough divisional fight this weekend, and the Bills' pass-rushing prowess lines up well against the Jets' weak pass blocking. Advantage, Buffalo.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs SD (6 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

Eric Decker missed the game with an injury, so Kerley was once again New York's top receiver. Kerley received six targets, but due to poorly thrown passes, only three of his targets were catchable. Kerley was able to secure two catches during New York's final drive when San Diego played deep zone coverage. Kerley caught back-to-back passes on shallow crossing routes for gains of 11 and 7,

2014 Week 6 vs DEN (7 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Despite receiving the second most targets among wide receivers, Kerley failed to make plays. Based on talent alone, Kerley had difficulty winning his individual match-ups against Talib. In addition, half of Kerley's targets were deemed uncatchable due to misfires by Geno Smith. Kerley, who was targeted on Smith's interception, ran the wrong route and Talib easily made the play.

2014 Week 7 vs NE (5 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

Jeremy Kerley, who is New York's top slot receiver, has faded in recent weeks. Despite receiving five to seven targets per game, Kerley has only accounted for seven catches over his last four games. Kerley appeared on 51 of 87 offensive snaps, but had issues beating press coverage at the line of scrimmage. During the first quarter, Kerley caught a 9-yard touchdown pass, but it was nullified due to a penalty.

Jets | Jeremy Kerley's extension official (Tue Oct 21, 04:06 PM) - New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.

Our View: Kerley was nearing the end of his rookie contract, and now he's locked up through the 2018 season. The Jets just acquired Percy Harvin last week, and they added Eric Decker in free agency earlier this year. Even though the future of their quarterback position is up in the air, the Jets are setting themselves up at wide receiver.
