Darelle Revis is still not able to shake off the concussion he suffered at the hands of C.J Spiller during Week 01 against the Buffalo Bills. He was forced to miss last weeks game at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, and things are far from definite about his status for Sunday night in Miami. No one is denying his quick feet and fast hands will greatly improve the chances for a W as the Jets look to bounce back from an ugly loss last week. However if Revis is not able to play the Jets should still match up fine in the secondary.
The Miami Dolphins are working with a rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, first year out of Texas A&M, Brian Hartline leading receiver, and running back Reggie Bush. Bush has continued to produce solid numbers for the last few seasons and checks in at 9 catches for a total of 71 yards ,which sadly is enough to be the team’s second-leading receiver. The Jets should feel quite secure loading up the box and going balls to the wall against the run, more than likely crushing any potential offense from Miami.
If Revis is not able to start the Jets will more than likely be forced to put out some combination of Kyle WIlson and Ellis Lankster at cornerback across from Antonio Cromartie. They should still feel confident that these guys can handle the task, but don’t be expecting a whipe out on the outside without Revis.
Last week Reggie Bush was the center of the offense, if Darelle Revis is still not able to play the Jets will be unable to key in on Bush, shutting him down all the way. They will have to throw extra support to the cornerbacks, making this game much more competitive. I expect to see a few break-out runs from Bush, and a couple int’s from Tannehill. Not very much there for fantasy owners…
The Jets ARE favored in Miami, and by all accounts should come away with a relative easy W, comparatively. This is an AFC East match-up that could greatly impact future plans of making the playoffs, so the fly-boys better bring it!
…Lets go Jets!!!
