Matt Forte Rumbling to Daylight
New York Jets: Play of Darrelle Revis First Major Concern of Season.
The New York Jets evened their record at 1-1 by finally exorcising their Rex Hex with a 37-31 road victory Thursday night over the Buffalo Bills.
After two weeks, a great debate now centers around whether the demise of Derrelle Revis is being greatly exaggerated.
The Jets have thus far recorded eight sacks, and limited a pair of opponents to a combined total of 143 yards rushing. Yet, Andy Dalton threw for 366 yards on week one, while Tyrod Taylor threw for another 297 yards on Thursday. That being said, the Jets have allowed 54 total points over their first two games.
Darrelle Revis has acknowledged to not being the same player he was ten years ago. And perhaps communication breakdowns with his safeties were at the heart of several long successful passes thrown his way.
This much is clear, the league has declared open season on Revis Island.
Chris Ivory Who?
Matt Forte has been a beast as the feature back. He rushed 22 times for 96 yards against the Bengals, then rumbled for 100 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries against the Bills. Forte also has seven receptions for 68 yards, averaging 9.7 yards per.
Bilal Powell has been limited to five rushes so far this season.
