Jets Top Bills; End Regular Season 11-5


Recommended Posts


The New York Jets went into the the week 17 match up against the Buffalo Bills with nothing to lose.  They had secured a playoff berth the previous week.  So the goal was simple, stay healthy.

Mission accomplished.

The inactive player list looked like an all-star team:

Antonio Cromartie – CB

Shonn Greene – RB

James Ihedigbo – DB

Darrelle Revis – CB

Eric Smith – FS

LaDainian Tomlinson – RB

Damien Woody – T

So what did the Jets JV team do?  They stepped up in a big way.  Mark Sanchez started but did not throw a pass.  The backup quarterbacks filled in nicely, Brad Smith and Joe McKnight ran all over the place and the defense was terrific.   Look at these numbers:

  • Mark Brunell 6/12, 110 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
  • Joe McKnight 32 carries, 158 yards
  • Brad Smith 5 carries, 60 yards
  • John Conner 8 carries, 44 yards, 1 TD

The defense had 3 sacks, numerous pressures, 4 interceptions and a touchdown by Marquice Coles (2 INT).

In addition to staying healthy and resting players they seemed to build a little momentum as well.  Next up, Indianapolis in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
