It wasn’t pretty, but the New York Jets did enough on both sides of the secure their fifth win of the season. New York had to dig down deep in an effort to overcome numerous injuries on the offensive line and in the secondary. In addition, kicker Nick Folk injured his quadriceps during warmups and gave all kicking duties to punter, Ryan Quigley. Ryan Fitzpatrick, injured thumb and all, was able to muster a competitive, winning effort and did not commit any turnovers.

New York’s defense returned to its ball-hawking ways, forcing three turnovers and registering five sacks. New York’s defensive line, which was led by Sheldon Richardson’s dominant effort, simply overpowered Jacksonville’s unit at the line of scrimmage. Monitor the progress of rookie linebacker, Lorenzo Mauldin. Mauldin was strictly utilized in pass rushing situations, but registered two key sacks.

From purely a statistical standpoint, Chris Ivory had one of the worst games for a running back in history. Ivory rushed 23 times for just 26 yards, which was an all-time low for a player with at least 23 carries. Ivory, however, was able to salvage his afternoon by scoring twice. While there were some injuries on the offensive line, namely to Nick Mangold and Willie Colon, Ivory is responsible for some of this ineptitude. Jacksonville’s run defense is fairly good, but it’s far from an all-time great unit that should limit Ivory.

It was a tale of two halves, but the New York Jets came away with their fourth win of the 2015 season. New York was stuck in post-bye week funk for the first half and trailed 13-10 at halftime. New York, however, received big performance from Darrelle Revis and Brandon Marshall during the third quarter and scored 17 unanswered points to pull away.

Chris Ivory turned in another big-time performance, gashing Washington’s once-vaunted run defense for 196 total yards. Ivory’s toughness and vision were on full display throughout the game as he had little trouble ripping off big runs and beating defenders to edge. Ivory was also featured as a receiver and had an impressive 24-yard catch and run. Chan Gailey made a conscious effort to attack the edges instead of running towards Washington’s beefy interior. Credit Ivory for once again rising to the occasion.

Special teams play continues to be a bugaboo. One of one Ryan Quigley’s punts was blocked in the end zone and was recovered by Washington for a touchdown. Nick Folk missed a 49-yard field goal, which is a rarity for him. These miscues haven’t cost New York yet, but the team will need play a perfect game next weekend against New England.
