Stock Watch: Risers and fallers

A look at the positives and negatives from Sunday's 17-10 win over the Jaguars:


1. The offensive line. After a tough first half, the line turned on the Ground & Pound, controlling the line of scrimmage. The front five blew open holes in the Jaguars’ 31st-ranked defense, allowing the Jets to gain 110 of their 166 yards in the second half. Players credited RG Brandon Moore, who delivered a fiery halftime message.

2. Shonn Greene/Bilal Powell. It took long enough, but the Jets finally have a solid 1-2 punch. They ran for 77 and 78 yards, respectively, plus one touchdown apiece. It wasn't pretty, but this is who they are -- grinders.

3. David Harris. This has been a relatively quiet season for the veteran linebacker, but he made several key plays in what may have been his best all-around game. He recorded six solo tackles, one sack, two QB hits and a key pass breakup in the fourth quarter.


1. Stephen Hill. The rookie wide receiver suffered a potentially serious knee injury in the second quarter. If he requires major surgery, it’ll be a crushing blow, robbing him of a much-needed offseason. He had been gaining more consistency in recent weeks.

2. Jeremy Kerley. That was a careless fumble in the second quarter. Fortunately for the Jets, he had the good sense to touch S Dwight Lowery as he scooped up the loose ball. Lowery, a former Jet, returned it 62 yards for a touchdown, but the score was overturned by replay because he was ruled down by contact.

3. Greg McElroy. Felt bad for the kid. He showed up at the stadium, thinking he would be active for the second straight week, but he was disappointed for the second time in five days. He was declared inactive, meaning he went from a possible No.1 to No. 3 in less than a week.
