This Sunday, as the Jets host the Jacksonville Jaguars, I'll be praying that they are able to stop the run. Dallas doesn't rely on the run as much as Jacksonville does, and we really haven't seen what the run defense can do this season.
Jacksonville as a team isn't as hyped as the Cowboys were, but they did win last week, and they have a much better running game with Jones-Drew. They're not media darlings, and I'd be lying if I said I knew many on the roster outside of him, Rashean Mathis, and and Kassim Osgood.
What I do know, is that the Jets are prone to fall behind and give up points early, and have been relying on late game comebacks to win with mixed results.
I'm most reminded of last season's games against Detroit, Cleveland and Houston, where many fans thought there was going to be a wash for the Jets, only for things to go down to the wire.
Am I nervous? Of course. What Jet fan isn't? Hopefully the Jets can improve on their defense, which seemed really discombobulated last week. It would also be great if the offense didn't wait until the second half to start scoring. Otherwise, it's going to be a long afternoon.
