WEEK TWELVE IN REVIS ISLAND...So, the Jets win for the second time in their last 8 games, giving New York a 5-6 record, after their 17-6 win against the Carolina Panthers.
I'm not sure if it was just rigged or a joke or if my boy Darrelle Revis is just this great. Steve Smith, WR, Carolina Panthers, 4x Pro-bowler.... you all aware of this guy, I'm not sure Jake Delhomme was yesterday, when he threw the ball to Revis just as many times as he did Smith. Smith finished with 2 receptions for, 2 yards , yes, no typo, 2 yards.
Revis, along with Smith, caught a reception from Delhomme twice, but Revis actually even got more yards receiving that Smith this game. Revis had 2 interceptions for 67 yards, and a touchdown. Hey, looks like Delhomme has a new go-to-guy.
Not that that wasn't a great performance by Revis, his best all season, but the Jets defense snapped out of their little struggle they had going for the past few weeks. It was just two weeks ago when they allowed the Patriots to pound them after they'd previously shut their offense out from touchdowns, and they also played weak against the Jaguars and Dolphins. They had started off with only 41 offensive points allowed in their first 4 games, struggled a bit with Miami, and then played well against the Bills and shut out Oakland, and then all hell broke loose.
Believe it or not, the Jets are still in the playoff hunt. The Jets have 2 winnable games coming up (Bills, Buccaneers), but a challenging end (Falcons, Colts, Bengals). Next week in Revis Island... Michael Clayton. My predictions for Clayton, 21 yards and 3 receptions... Revis 1 interception. Generous enough after Smith's amazing game?
