Week 3 Preview: Jets Look to Avoid Stampede in Indy

Recommended Posts

Adam Gase

Who: New York Jets (0-2) vs Indianapolis Colts (1-1)

When: Sunday @4:05

Where: Lucas Oil Stadium

The Line: Jets +10

In what will likely be another blowout loss, the Jets travel to Indianapolis to take on the 1-1 Indianapolis Colts but there will still be some matchups worth watching.  We’ll take a look at a few of those here.

DT Quinnen Williams vs LG Quenton Nelson: 

This should be the marquee matchup of the day.  Williams has been a force in each of the Jets first two games but came away empty handed in week 1 as Bills quarterback Josh Allen was able to use his legs to avoid pressure.  Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t as lucky last season as Williams came away with a pair of sacks to go along with his 7 tackles (2 for loss) and a forced fumble.  Nelson is one of the leagues premiere interior lineman and figures to pose quite a challenge for Williams.

C Josh Andrews and RG Greg Van Roten vs Deforest  Buckner: 

Buckner was a one-man wrecking crew last week against the Minnesota Vikings and this week he gets Josh Andrews in his first NFL start alongside Van Roten who has struggled quite a bit early on.  Sam Darnold could be spending a fair bit of his day avoiding heavy pressure up the middle.  What else is new?

TE Chris Herndon vs S George Odum: 

It’s difficult to fathom the Jets continuing to avoid Herndon with so few options at wide receiver but don’t rule it out as head coach Adam Gase prefers using his best receiver as an extra blocker.  If he can find the time to get Herndon involved on something more than a couple of tight end screens or swing passes, the big guy should be able to beat Odum if given the opportunity to do so.  Despite the potential for a big day, don’t rule out the possibility of Herndon seeing just a couple of targets.

S Marcus Maye vs TE Moe Allie-Cox: 

The 6’ 5’’ Allie-Cox is the leading receiver for the Colts so far this season and he’ll likely draw Marcus Maye in coverage.  After surrendering a touchdown in the closing seconds of the first half last week, Maye will be looking to bounce back against Allie-Cox.

Jets ILB’s vs RB Nyheim Hines: 

No way of knowing if it’ll be another heavy dose of Alec Ogletree or if the Jets will give Avery Williamson more reps on Sunday, but whoever it is had better be ready.  Hines is a versatile player who can catch the ball out of the backfield or lined up in the slot.  He’s shifty enough to make you miss and could be a good check-down option for Philip Rivers on third down.

It’s going to be another long day at the office for the Jets as we’re looking for the Colts to steamroll Adam Gase and company by a final score of 34-6.

Philip Rivers is going to be highly motivated to make a statement this game. I don't see Colts letting up on the gas no matter the score until mid-way through 4th quarter.

This one has the potential to become one of those very memorable Jets dark moments...

Is 0-6 enough to fire Gase? Let's start taking odds on when it will happen.

If we get blown out by a ridiculous margin in one game it might be enough. Question is, what would it take? 30-0? 40-0? 50-0?

This won't even register on the top 50 list of dark Jets' moments even if it happens exactly like you say it will.

He won't get fired this week regardless, since the Denver game is coming up Thursday.

After the Denver game would be good timing, however.  Gives ol' Jim Bob Cooter 10 days to get ready for Arizona, which would also be a home game.

Gase is going nowhere this season. He will get a pass since COVID has turned everything upside down. If he can salvage a few wins this year perhaps he gets another year but he has to show something besides bug eyes 👀 to keep his job next year. This has yet to be given a reasonable explanation.

The best part is Macc's face when he looks at Gase. He knows at that moment he is F*CKED with a capital Q.

For you and I? Nope because we expect it. But never discount recency bias. The rage will be immaculate.

Perhaps.  I just think numbness is settling in for the majority of the fanbase. 

Last week we had people "guaranteeing" the Jets would beat the 49ers and discussing how much money they were putting on the Jets. 

There's been none of that this week, even with a massive point spread.
