New York Teams

Jets rookie S Jamal Adams is everywhere. He broke up a pass downfield, then sacked Jay Cutler on the next play. Clearly, he's a foundation player for the rebuilding Jets.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Jets have their first lead of the season. Only three teams -- the Browns, Bengals and Giants -- have not led at any point this season.

After getting embarrassed the first two weeks, the Jets' defense has come to play. They've held Miami to 40 total yards and two first downs. They're playing eight-man boxes, daring Jay Cutler to beat them.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

LeGarrette Blount tosses the ball at some Giants defenders after the TD. DRC followed him across the field and wasn't happy.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Alarming development for the Giants' defense, as the Eagles basically run it down their throats on an 18-play, 90-yard touchdown drive that covers 9:34. The Eagles ran it 14 times on that drive for 63 yards. Giants' run defense SHOULD be one of their advantages in this matchup.

Statement from Jets acting owner Christopher Johnson: "It was an honor and a privilege to stand arm-in-arm unified with our players during today's National Anthem. We are very proud of our players and their strong commitment to work in our community to make a positive, constructive, and unifying impact." No criticism of Donald Trump, who recently named Woody Johnson -- Christopher's older brother -- the US ambassador to the United Kingdom.

There was a lot of talking coming into this game about whether the home crowd would cheer for the Jets. Sounds weird, right? There's a faction of the fan base that wants them to lose so the team can get the top draft pick. So far, the crowd is into it. In fact, the Dolphins have three pre-snap penalties because of crowd noise. Who'da thunk it?

Giants winning the field position battle, and the defense looks fired up, but I have no idea what they were trying to do on that third-down run play.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Orleans Darkwa in to start the second drive. He is clearly closing the gap on Paul Perkins, who didn't look great on the opening drive.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants cornerbacks playing sides. Jenkins is not following Alston Jeffery.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants' offense up-tempo early, Eli Manning getting rid of ball quickly. Trying to keep Eagles from changing defensive personnel on them, and of course the quick releases are designed to help with protection. They moved the ball into Eagles territory but couldn't convert third-down throw to Odell Beckham.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets CB Juston Burris, who allowed two touchdowns last week and missed a tackle on a long TD run, has been replaced by Darryl Roberts in the nickel package. Todd Bowles said he wasn't planning any lineup changes. So much for that.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants players stood with their arms locked but for the first time they had players kneel for the anthem. Damon Harrison, Olivier Vernon and Landon Collins kneeled.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets are linking arms during the anthem. Acting owner Chris Johnson is on the field, standing between Josh McCown and Jamal Adams.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

LB Jonathan Casillas just went down the line addressing the military personnel on the Giants sideline getting ready to unfurl the flag for the anthem.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Considering Giants really didn't know it was realistic for Janoris Jenkins to play until Saturday, hard to imagine they made a game plan that has him following Alshon Jeffery. Might play sides.

It could get worse for G-Men in Philly

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for the 0-2 Giants' bad start? Maybe, but ESPN's FPI is giving the Eagles nearly a 70 percent chance to win at home Sunday.

ESPN Stats & Info

Dolphins favored in the Meadowlands

ESPN's FPI gives the Dolphins, who rank top-10 in offensive efficiency, a two-thirds chance of going on the road and beating their AFC East rivals, the Jets, who have the second-worst defensive efficiency.
