Joe Judge benching Andrew Thomas, the fourth overall pick, didn't go unnoticed in the Giants locker room. A statement move. "It's definitely good for the coaching," captain Jabrill Peppers said. "It doesn't matter who it is, the rules are the rules."

WR Sterling Shepard (turf toe) was on the field in a helmet at practice Tuesday. That starts the clock on his 21-day window to be activated from injured reserve. There is also a chance he plays Thursday vs. Eagles.

There is a 28% chance that the winner of the NFC East will have just six or fewer wins, according to FPI. In 13 of FPI's 20,000 simulations this morning, a team won the division with just *four* wins (11 of those were the Eagles, with one apiece of the Giants and Washington). In one simulation the Chiefs won 15 games and the entire NFC East won 14 games combined.

Sounds like Adam Gase has no plans to relinquish the play calling. "I've got a couple of other things I have to really sort through offensively before we make any kind of decisions whatsoever on stuff like that," Gase said. He added, "That's like step 10 right now and we're on Step 2." Gase has called the plays in all 70 games as a head coach. At this point, a change couldn't hurt. It's hard to go less than zero.

Joe Judge again insistent that Matt Peart playing, even in second half, was not a performance-based indictment of first-round pick Andrew Thomas. Says that was the plan. Also asked if Peart earned the opportunity to play more. "Yeah, I think he did a good enough job. ... Has he earned the right to be on the field and contribute? Absolutely."

WR Sterling Shepard is "closer" to a return, per coach Joe Judge. He worked with trainers Monday. His status could be up to a pregame workout after missing four games with turf toe.

QB Joe Flacco gave a grim, but accurate assessment of the offense: "It's tough to look at some of that right now and say we're making progress. Obviously, we're not on the same page with a lot of things. We're not playing well enough to really do much and be in these games." He said it won't take "a big fix. It's just everybody coming together and doing basic things at the same time." The Jets are 32nd in scoring, 32nd in passing and 30th in yards.
