Jets 7, Giants 0 (HALFTIME): The Jets can feel good about their defense, which has dominated in every aspect. Big plays by Darrelle Revis, Mo Wilkerson and Calvin Pryor. The improved team speed is evident. The starting offense, sans Brandon Marshall, managed one score in five series. Ryan Fitzpatrick was rusty, missing open receivers. He had one good throw, a 22-yard TD to Eric Decker. Matt Forte has 12 touches, no big plays in his Jets debut.

Wow. That was something. A very animated Victor Martinez practically dragged off field by manager Brad Ausmus after being tossed by home plate umpire Mike Everitt. Martinez just tossed his helmet onto the field from dugout, Everitt taking notes. Tyler Collins in as DH. That's Martinez' fourth career ejection and it is fair to to say he got his money's worth...
