Research Notes

  • Shonn Greene: 2nd player in Jets history with 150 Rush yds and 3 Rush TD (Emerson Boozer - exactly 150 Yds and 3 TD on Oct. 15, 1972 in win at Patriots)

  • Shonn Greene collected 103 of his career-high 161 yards between the tackles Sunday against the Colts, including all three of his touchdowns. Greene averaged 2.7 yards before contact on those rushes after averaging 1.5 yards before contact per rush over his first five games.

  • The Jets defense held Andrew Luck to 5-of-13 for 85 yards and an interception when using at least five pass rushers Sunday. The Darrelle Revis injury in Week 3 was expected to make the Jets defense less aggressive, but few predicted the unit to actually become more effective in coverage when using extra pass rushers.
