Brandon Marshall should reach 10,000-yard milestone against Eagles

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Highlighting two players who figure to play integral roles for the New York Jets on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles:

Brandon Marshall, wide receiver: He's only 66 yards shy of becoming the seventh active player to reach 10,000 receiving yards, and it would be an upset if it doesn't happen against the Eagles. Coming off a 101-yard game against the Indianapolis Colts, Marshall will face a vulnerable pass defense. The Eagles corners are Nolan Carroll II and Byron Maxwell, the $63 million free agent who was torched for two long touchdowns in the first two games. He blamed fatigue on the 44-yarder last week by the Dallas Cowboys' Terrance Williams, a ugly play in which Maxwell gave too much cushion and reacted in slow motion. You have to figure that Marshall will draw double teams, especially if Eric Decker (sprained knee) doesn't play.

Muhammad Wilkerson, defensive end: His performance against the Colts (two quarterback hits, six hurries) was overshadowed by other big individual efforts, but you can bet the Eagles took notice. They should be worried, very worried, especially with their offensive line woes. The Eagles are strong at tackle with Jason Peters and Lane Johnson, but their guards -- Allen Barbre and Andrew Gardner -- are vulnerable. The Jets like to move Wilkerson around the line, matching him against the weakest link. Look for him to be over Barbre and Gardner at times. It could be another tough day for DeMarco Murray, who has had no room to run. He has been hit at or behind the line of scrimmage on 10 of his 21 rushes, averaging only -0.1 yards per carry before contact, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
