So I am in balmy Cleveland for the week, hence the lack of material on the site, but have no fear as this is not permanent and I will be back to daily doses of Pack news on Wednesday. In the meantime, chew on these 5 questions that I asked Marc Greenberg of The Jet Press on this weeks game between the Gold and Green and the gang green.
The Jets secondary has been spotty this season. Darrelle Revis is finally at 100% (or so he says), so this is the main area that can and hopefully will improve. With Cromartie and Revis at CBs, watch out.
The Jets have the top offensive line and running game in the NFL. Look for them to balance out the packers attack with runs and quick passes from Sanchez to TE Dustin Keller and WR Santonio Holmes. If LaDainian Tomlinson needs to stay back to block, his pass receptions will be limited.
1. Limit turnovers from Sanchez. He’s been great all season up to last week in Denver where he threw 2 terrible INTs and could have thrown 3 more.
2: Pressure Aaron Rodgers. The Jets love to pressure the QB, but when they can’t get there in time, the secondary has been exposed, primarily rookie CB Kyle Wilson. A big game is needed from Jason Taylor and Calvin Pace
3. Run the ball. Dominating the clock and opening up the passing game for Braylon Edwards will win this game.
For the Packers to win, they need to get to Sanchez and force him to make mistakes. The Jets can’t hand the ball off the LT and Shonn Greene all day, so Sanchez will need to make some big plays. If the Packers can get to Sanchez and force a turnover or two, the Jets could be in trouble.
Packers: Aaron Rodgers. He needs to limit his INTs and have a big passing day
Jets: LaDainian Tomlinson. LT has been so good this season and has forced teams to put an extra man in the box which opens up the game for Edwards, Holmes, Keller and Jerrico Cotchery.
