Jets on the Big Stage Tonight

After a Sunday where the Bills move to three wins and no loses and the Dolphins pull an unbelievable upset over the AFC East favorite Patriots, the Jets get geared up for their big game tonight against the Chargers. The Jets can move to second place in the East, one game behind the powerful Bills team and tied with the Patriots with a win tonight.

The Jets will be looking to put up some big points on offense tonight, something they were not able to do the first two weeks (20 points-Week 1, 10 Points- Week 2). The Jets will look to the leadership of Brett Favre to score some touchdowns so they don't fall to the powerful offense of the Chargers. Laveranues Coles will be looking for a big game today, even though he may only see limited time. He has been doing limited practice reps all week but is expected to dress and be ready to play. Favre and Coles hooked up for a 54 yard pass play against the Patriots in week 2, so they will be looking to do some more of the same. Favre will also be looking to  Jerricho Cotchery for some big plays as well. Cotchery will be facing old teammate at North Carolina State, Phillip Rivers.

The key for the Jets will be to accomplish a passing game early in the game so that Thomas Jones and the running game can shine later in the game. After the Chargers lost 2 games in the final ticks of the game, they will be shooting for a big victory over the Jets. The Jets need to get points early to keep up with the powerful Chargers offensively team or Phillip Rivers, LaDainian Tomlinson, Chris Chambers and Antonio Gates. Darrell Revis, Bryan Thomas and the Jets Defense will be looking to stop this powerful offense early and often to avoid letting the game get away from them.

Should make for a good Monday Night Football game tonight. Kickoff at 8:30. Lets Go Jets.
