Opening Statement…

I just watched the tape this morning. There really were a lot of good things on the tape. Obviously, I loved the way offensively we were able to control the football, in particular in the second half, the way we really got our running game going. It’s a lot of multiple things that we did in the running game, but it was good. From a defensive perspective, when you see it, it’s like here’s this play and this play, all off of the same formation, which kind of makes it difficult. I thought our guys did a tremendous job. Jacksonville was running everything they could, stunts, blitzes, everything to try and slow the running game down. It was just kind of old school football, but very effective. I also liked the way some of our guys were blocking. In particular, I thought Konrad (Reuland) had a good game. We put him in a lot of roles, where sometimes he plays tight end and sometimes he plays fullback. I thought he did a real nice job of finding people in space. I was encouraged by that. I like the way Bilal Powell and Shonne (Greene) ran the football. Obviously, we made the big play at the end with the passing game when we had to have it the most, so I’m happy with that. On defense, really a good game overall particularly on third down. We’re really doing a nice job on third down. I promise you that Muhammad Wilkerson gets a vote for Pro Bowl from Jacksonville. I don’t think there’s any doubt about that. It was a dominant performance for Mo.

It seems like we say it each week, but clearly he’s a guy we talked about at the beginning of the year. For an interior lineman, he’s doing an incredible job. Statistically, he had one sack, but this guy, over and over again, backs are having to pick him up. It’s rare to have an interior lineman get the attention from the backs. Usually that’s assigned to an outside edge rusher, but the backs are helping on Mo time and time again. It just shows you what the teams are thinking about this guy. What a performance by him. I thought the communication for the most part was good. We did have a couple of miscues in the back, I think communication wise. Other than that, I thought we played a nice game. They really tried to do a lot of what we call “speedo’s”, deep pass combinations, and our guys did a nice job of playing those routes almost the entire day. On special teams, I was very impressed with Robert (Malone) still punting the football. I like the way we covered for the most part. I think when you put (LaRon) Landy in there as that gunner, I think that returner sometimes thinks twice before he takes off with it.

On injuries…

Stephen (Hill) unfortunately has that injury. I’m not sure the extent of that injury just yet, really with all of the injuries. Guys are still getting MRI’s and things like that. I don’t really have the extent of (Stephen’s) injury. Bryan Thomas has a pec. I don’t know the extent of that injury. I think Aaron Berry had a bit of a hamstring. I think that’s pretty much it.

On Quinton Coples…

He is (very powerful). I think that’s the combination that we’ve been talking about. Obviously, his athleticism really jumps out at you, but he is a powerful guy. We always say he’s country strong, and he is. What we’re starting to do with him now is we’re mixing him up as an inside player and an outside player. Really, (that) was a strong performance. This man had a strong performance. He had missed a sack when he went over the top of (Chad) Henne. Henne did a nice job of avoiding him. I think he got one sack and then affected three more throws, including the last one at the end of the game. It looked like he was eating that tackle up pretty good over there. This is really the kind of ability that he has. I’m encouraged by (his performance). You have Muhammad playing at an unbelievable level, I mean a Pro Bowl level. You have this young man with that kind of ability and you see him getting better, I see him getting better each week. We have to get Kenrick Ellis back to that level. I thought at the beginning of the year, Kenrick was really playing well. He hasn’t played as well as he did then, coming off that knee. We need to get him back to that level. Those should be three guys that we can count on, that this organization can count on for several years.

On if he considers both Shonn Green and Bilal Powell as starters…

I don’t look at it that way. Shonn is obviously the guy that gets the majority of the carries, but we feel great about Bilal Powell. When you run the ball the way we were, both of the guys get the carries and that’s great, but 1 and 1a, we’re just trying to find ways to win games. Generally, Shonn is going to be the guy that gets the majority of the carries, but I certainly like the way Bilal is playing.

On if they will have the same run/pass ratio in future games…

No, I think each opponent is different, so you tailor a game plan accordingly. We felt good about both phases, (but more about) being able to run the ball though. If you can pick your poison, I think you’d prefer to run it because that controls the clock (and) controls the game more than if you have to throw it every snap. Clearly, we were confident throwing the ball against this group. It kind of had a little step-back when Stephen went down. We were down to three receivers, so that was the issue. We really felt the way we were running the ball and controlling the game that that would be what we did the majority of the game.

On the possibility of bringing in another receiver if Hill cannot play…

We always look at all possibilities. Obviously, we’ve added Clyde Gates. We (have) added Mardy Gilyard. I think our pro department does a tremendous job of finding guys for us. Hopefully, that won’t be the case with Stephen. Hopefully he’ll be able to bounce back. We hope to get Clyde Gates back. Again, he was a guy that was really coming on for us. Obviously, you have Chaz (Schilens) and Jeremy (Kerley). Hopefully, Stephen won’t have that big of an injury.

On why Jordan White did not play…

He wasn’t active.

On not playing White at receiver…

Again, we’ll put the guys in that we think give us the best opportunity to be successful. Obviously, I prefer Jeremy Kerley in the slot over Jordan White. That’s just how I feel.

On if White is only a slot receiver…

No, I guess he could play outside, but primarily, he’s a slot receiver, really as is Jeremy. Jeremy is, to me, more valuable as a slot receiver than he is as an outside receiver. That’s no slight on him. You can say the same thing about Wes Welker, but obviously that’s a very valuable position in today’s game - slot receiver. For us to put a guy in there in place of Jeremy Kerley, I’m not comfortable with that.

On defensive third-down efficiency the last two games…

I think it starts with our pass rush. The guys up front, especially Muhammad (Wilkerson), are really doing a great job beating one-on-one (protections) and actually having the running backs a lot of times as well. That’s really where it starts, being very mobile with our coverages and really running our package on third down. I think as the season goes on, you see our guys our more comfortable playing with each other (and knowing) what they can expect from each other, obviously, with LaRon (Landry) and Yeremiah (Bell). Getting Eric Smith back helps because he gives you so many different options (of) how you can use him. You can rush him. You can blitz him. You can man-cover (with him). The guy can play zone, high-zone and low-zone. Those are things that I really feel good about what we’re doing with guys. Antonio Allen stepped up in a big way (and) did a nice job rushing the passer primarily, but we know he has man-cover skills as well. I think (Coach) Mike Pettine, (Coach) Dennis (Thurman) and (Coach) Bob Sutton are doing a great job really having our guys prepared. I like the fact Quinton Coples is now starting to step it up also as a pass rusher and I think that helps us.

On if the team will consider adding Braylon Edwards…

You guys know what I’ve always said about Braylon in the past, so you know how I feel about him, but right now, I think we’ll just focus on the guys we have.

On the possibility of bringing in Edwards…

My understanding is I think he’s on Seattle’s team if I’m not mistaken, so I don’t (know) about it. Plus, he had a bad comment about me and I feel bad about it (joking). No, you know me, shoot, please.

On the team suddenly having playoff possibilities…

Well suddenly, I’m not worried about anything else but finding a way to beat Tennessee. Our position is simple - we have to beat Tennessee, so I’m not really focused on anything else.

On why Greg McElroy was inactive…

The whole season when you looked at it, I was comfortable with Tim (Tebow) as our backup quarterback and when he was healthy, when I felt he was healthy, obviously, he was cleared medically, as I saw the way the week progressed that I felt good about getting Tim in that spot. I said it last week that if he’s healthy where I think he’s healthy, then he would have that role.

On what it says about the team to win the past two games after a challenging start to the season…

One thing I know about our group is we’re going to compete like crazy until the bitter end. That’s what this group does. But we try to get better, we try to do things right, we try to get better on the practice field and in the classroom and try to get better. A thing that I think you can really see the improvement is penalties. When you look at the penalties, I think we’re third in the league now in least penalized team but when we started in the bye week, we really studied on it, started focusing on it and you’ve seen that number come way down. I mean way down. I’m proud of that. I see our guys getting better and improving and I mentioned it. I said before I see our defense getting much better and the communication and it starts back there. The things that we can fix, I see us getting better at. Obviously, ball security still is an issue and it’ll still be addressed and (is something we will) keep working on. I don’t think anybody’s worked harder on it than we have.  It’s something that we still need to get better at. That’s the missing piece. If we don’t turn the ball over, we’re going to be a tough team to beat.

On whether this is the most injured team he’s been a part of…

Yeah, I’m not sure. I think it’s probably a true statement but I’m not 100 percent sure on that. It just seems like it. I believe it is, but I’m not real sure about that.

On whether Dustin Keller will play on Monday…

It seems like he’s getting better. I thought he was getting better as the week went on, but again, it wasn’t to the point where he could play. So hopefully he’ll keep making those strides and he’ll be able to play. And adding another day (of practice), Monday, hopefully that will get him back on the field.

On why he’s hesitant to talk about the playoffs…

I’m not going to guarantee a playoff spot if that’s what you mean. I think part of that is, look, the fact that we’re one game under 500, I think you’re probably not in the playoff conversation. So, to me, we just need to keep our head down and keep winning games. We know the only way we can affect it is to win our games and then we’ll see what somebody tells us.

On Joe McKnight’s migraines…

Yeah, I don’t know. He had like three in a row there so I saw him on the bus ride over, he was great. Everything was doing fantastic. But maybe an hour before the game, he’s having a migraine. Sometimes when he gets the medication and all that, he’ll come back around. Once it subsides, he’s able to go out and play. But again, you don’t know when it’s going to pop up.  That’s why I activated (Kahlil) Bell.  (We) went with, in essence, four tailbacks because of Joe’s situation with the migraines.

On whether Bart Scott playing more third downs because he is more comfortable with him…

No, it’s about his health. I think that’s the big thing. He’s still probably playing (with an injury) when other guys wouldn’t, but he’s healthier than he was with that toe and all that. I think he would’ve had a sack yesterday, but he kind of slipped. He’s still not 100 percent, but he’s getting closer and that’s encouraging.

On whether he thought he’d get through today’s press conference without being asked about who is the starting quarterback…

I think it’s Al Woodall this week. (joking)  We’ll go with Mark (Sanchez). But after last week, it was pretty amazing how many questions we had.

On the long pass to Jordan Shipley at the end of the game at Jacksonville…

Well, we were playing two-man (coverage). It’s just one of those things. A guy made a (play and I) give those guys credit. We certainly could’ve played it much better, without question, but you have to give them credit. (Chad) Henne made a nice throw and Shipley got open and made a nice catch. It was disappointing to say the least. Certainly we could’ve called something different, but we could’ve executed much better as well.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv:

Darrelle Revis has made it pretty clear that he intends to play in 2017, telling SNY "I still have a lot of football to play." He even thinks he can still play football at a high level.

But at what position? And for whom? Neither of those answers are clear just yet. And though it's certainly possible that the Jets will simply part ways with the greatest cornerback they've ever had, a team source insisted not to rule Revis out of the Jets' 2017 plans just yet.

Brian Bassett:

Welp. Let's face it brother, this season has been a bust.

Maybe it is just me, but it seems like the Faustian bargain made by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets on the eve of training camp signaled the end. Since then the trajectory of this team has been steadily downward: horrifying play at QB, the season-ending injury to Eric Decker, the immolation of Darrelle Revis as "player who gives a damn" … it has been rough. Hell, even Muhammad Wilkerson's reputation looks to be streaking down the Alpine Slide at Action Park!

But since we're Jets fans, we are notorious gluttons for punishment. So rather than dwell on all the bad stuff … what causes for hope do you have from what you've seen this season, Bent?

New York Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said young quarterbacks Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg need to get all the reps they can get to continue to develop.

Though the Jets have decided to turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback for the foreseeable future, Gailey said Petty "needs all of the work he can get," according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes.

"It helps to play in games. ... The probability in games, you've got a lot better idea of what's going to happen," Gailey said. "In practice, you only have about a 75 percent probability of how they're going to be, how they're to play, and how they're going to progress."

Petty has started just one game -- a 9-6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10 -- this season before head coach Todd Bowles opted to make Fitzpatrick, who led New York to 10 wins last season, the starter again.

GEICO SportsNite: Darrelle Revis 00:01:34
Ralph Vacchiano reports from the Jets facility on the Darrelle Revis rumors of him possibly retiring after the 2016 season.

Darrelle Revis, the embattled Jets cornerback, insists that he has given no thought to retirement despite his age and his struggles this season, and that his love for the game of football is as strong as ever. In fact, in an interview with SNY.tv on Thursday, he said any questions about how much he still wants to play are "really bizarre."

That was the 31-year-old Revis' response to the latest round of criticism in what has become a miserable season for the future Hall of Famer. He has struggled on the field in a season he admits is "definitely not" up to his personal standards, and the shots he's taken in the media have been relentless at times.

The latest came in a report in the New York Daily News on Wednesday that quoted a "confidant" of the cornerback saying "If he had his way he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore."

  • With lack of creating turnovers, the team has been working hard in practice to get them. "We [are] trying everything we can to get them," Bowles said. "It's just not falling our way right now." 
  • WR Devin Smith has returned to practice and has no restrictions on what he can do. So far, according to Bowles, Smith is almost caught up with the offense.

WR Brandon Marshall wants to finish his career with the Jets, the wide receiver told reporters on Monday.

"Obviously (I have) no plans on retiring, no plans on switching teams," Marshall said. "Would love to stay here and retire as a Jet."

The Jets acquired Marshall and a seventh round draft pick from the Bears for a fifth round pick prior to the 2015 NFL Draft. In his first season with New York, Marshall caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"You never know in this business," Marshall admitted about the chances he will be back in New York next season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the Jets starting quarterback, Todd Bowles announced on Monday, and he indicated it wasn't even a difficult decision. It doesn't matter to the Jets coach that Fitzpatrick is almost certainly not coming back next season, nor does it apparently matter to him that the 3-8 Jets have nothing left to play for this year.

Fitzpatrick, Bowles said, gives the Jets the best chance to win and Bowles still thinks that's important. So at least for now, the future - and Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg - will have to wait.

By the end of the game, Patriots fans had taken over the Meadowlands and no one was surprised. Most of the Jets fans sadly headed for the exits, having seen this ending before.

Of course the Jets had a chance to beat the Patriots, and of course it ended with the ball getting swatted out of Ryan Fitzpatrick's hands. And of course Tom Brady, given enough time -- or any time at all -- engineered a game-winning drive. That's the way it goes for teams who have franchise quarterbacks on their roster. That's the way it goes, far too often against the Jets.

Bent: This was as frustrating a loss as the Jets have experienced all season. While it's easy to take consolation from the fact that the game was essentially meaningless and that losing the game might even be for the best in the long run, it's always unbearable to lose to the Patriots. 

That's especially true when the Jets arguably played well enough to win comfortably...

Vacc's 3 Keys: Patriots-Jets 00:04:03
SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano identifies three keys for a Jets upset over the New England Patriots on Sunday.

THE GAME: The New England Patriots (8-2) at the Jets (3-7) at the Meadowlands on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 4:25 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER: There's a storm front coming … but not soon enough to impact this game. Unfortunately for the Jets, since weather is a great equalizer, it'll be a nice, brisk day with temperatures in the low-to-mid 40s and moderate winds (although again, unfortunately for the Jets, probably not strong enough to impact the game).

WHAT IT MEANS: In terms of this season? Nothing. In terms of the future? Nothing. But the Jets, with their decision to go back to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, are going all-in on one, feel-good day for themselves and their fans. Yeah, sure, they're not mathematically eliminated yet. But Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy aren't walking through that door, so let's stick to reality. The Jets want to beat the Patriots to have one happy day before the reality of their December death march towards the end of their season kicks in.

During the season, Bent's Game Analysis charts games for some of the Jets' upcoming opponents, enabling a breakdown of what to watch out for on gameday…

Last year, the Patriots lost in overtime at MetLife Stadium, but the chances of a repeat performance tomorrow are slim. With the Jets falling to 3-7 before the bye, a chance to play spoiler is about all they have to play for over the final six games of the year. While many fans are already looking ahead to next year, the Jets' coaching staff will still be going all out to give a competitive effort. However, it might be hard to motivate their players following a frustrating first half of the season.

The Jets discuss their upcoming divisional matchup with Tom Brady and the Patriots at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - There are many reasons why Todd Bowles gave a stiff arm to the future this week and decided to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback on Sunday. The most important one, he's said all along, is that Fitzpatrick gives the Jets their best shot at a win.

And boy, in the middle of this miserable, lost season, would a win over the New England Patriots feel good.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Tom Brady missed practice for the Patriots with a knee injury on Wednesday, and all of New England is now waiting to exhale. But there's no reason for Jets fans to bother holding their breath. The Jets, as you all know, just aren't lucky enough for Brady to miss this game.

As far as the Jets are concerned, though, that's just fine. At this point, they'd rather see Brady in the lineup. Because if they're going to pull off this meaningless upset just so they can feel a little better about themselves in their lost season, they may as well do it with the Patriots at full strength.

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he doesn't have an idea of when center Nick Mangold will return from his ankle injury that has kept him out for the past three games, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Mangold, 32, did not practice Wednesday and has missed three games in a row for the first time in his career. He has been in and out of a walking boot for the past few weeks, which has clouded Bowles' idea of when he may return.

"For me, if you're not practicing, you're not improving," Bowles said. "I haven't seen him run yet ... he's not doing anything that I see."

Despite Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis having an up-and-down season, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said he and his team will not take the corner lightly this Sunday. 

Belichick, who coached Revis in the 2014 season, said the 31-year-old still has the ability to make plays to beat teams.
