Predicting the Jets' inactives for tomorrow against the Patriots: LB Jamien Sherwood (injury), DT Jonathan Marshall, CB Jason Pinnock, RB Josh Adams, RB La'Mical Perine, WR Jeff Smith and WR Denzel Mims. Analysis: The expected return of WRs Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole creates a numbers issue, one that could result in Mims being a healthy scratch. They can't dress all seven WRs. If it's six, Smith gets the edge over Mims because of special teams.

WR Jamison Crowder, who missed the opener due to a positive COVID-19 test, said: "It's something I had to deal with. The whole world is dealing with it." Crowder, nagged by a groin injury in recent weeks, said he would've played last week if he hadn't tested positive. He hopes to play Sunday. "I'll do what I do, be a valuable option for Zach (Wilson)," he said.

Dexter Lawrence on jumping offsides: "That's on me. I have to be more disciplined in … a critical situation." Lawrence it seems didn't think he was offsides a day later. "My opinion really don't matter," he said. "We lost the game. The refs called what they called."

WR Darius Slayton said his drop was a play he 100% expects to make. Should have run the ball down. Probably should have dove. As for the team, Slayton says the Giants are "disappointed but hungry."

LT Mekhi Becton is having knee surgery, Robert Saleh confirmed. The timetable is a minimum of four to eight weeks. Saleh was vague in his description of the surgery, saying there are "still decisions to be made." Sounds like the timetable is fluid. George Fant will start at left tackle; he played 132 snaps last year at LT. Good thing they signed Morgan Moses, who steps in at right tackle. They have two veteran tackles; no excuses for another bad day in pass protection.

Early in the offseason, Robert Saleh gave DC Jeff Ulbrich a poster for his office that says, "Eliminate Explosive Plays." Saleh called it a "cheesy old sign" that he's been carrying with him since he was the Jaguars' LB coach in 2014. It includes hand-drawn pictures of little bombs. Saleh's definition of explosive plays: Passes over 16 yards, runs over 12. In Week 1, they surrendered five passes and three runs.
