Lots of numbers this week.

Jets-Bills Post Game Numbers

From the Stats & Info gurus, the last time the Jets had two 100+ yard receivers was Week 12 2006, Jerricho Cotchery and Laveranues Coles.

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 22, 2013
Take away the fluky 59 yard run from Fred Jackson and the #NYJ defense held Jackson/Spiller to 22 yards on 16 carries. That is stout.

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 23, 2013
Smith-to-Holmes for 69 yds longest 4thQ/OT TD pass by #Jets since 1996, when O'Donnell hit Graham for 78, per @ESPNStatsInfo.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 23, 2013
have a situation where Geno could be brought along gradually while still winning games. Believe it or not. #Jets

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 23, 2013
Also, 4 plays of 40+ yards for the first time since 1991. All of them came in the passing game. #MartyBall #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 23, 2013
Smith/Holmes, 69 y, 3rd longest go-ahead TD in 4th Q in #Jets history, per @ESPNStatsInfo. Namath/Bell 83 in '72, Robinson/Walker 75 in '78.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 23, 2013
Sunday's win over the Bills was the first time the Jets had 500 or more yards of total offense since 2000. #nyj

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) September 23, 2013
Elias confirms that yesterday was the 1st time the Jets had a 300 Yard Passer, 2 100 Yard WRs and a 100 Yard Runner in the same game.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 23, 2013
Quinton Coples played 66% of snaps (57 of 86) in 1st game back from ankle surgery. Had 3 total tackles, 2 QB hits & 1 tackle for loss. #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 23, 2013
Most amazing part of 2-1 start to me is Jets are -6 in turnover margin. Only the Steelers and Giants are worse and both of them are 0-3.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 23, 2013
And those two Super Mario sacks came in one game (11/21/10)

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 23, 2013
With 226 yards rushing, #Jets' Bilal Powell is 2nd in AFC - 30 yards behind Titans' Chris Johnson.

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 23, 2013
The multiple offenders: Wilson 5 penalties, Ducasse 4, Coples 2, Wilkerson 2, Holmes 2 #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 23, 2013
#Jets win snapped 5-game losing streak vs. divisional opponents. Have won 7 of last 8 vs. Bills.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 23, 2013
I missed one 40+ pass from last year when I counted after the game. Jets had 6 last year. 4 yesterday.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 23, 2013

#Jets: 7 different players recorded sacks vs. Buff, first time since '82 (when sacks became official stat) they had 7 players in sack column

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 25, 2013

In that game, Namath had passes of 79 & 80 yds to TE Rich Caster, 65 & 42 to WR Eddie Bell and 67 to RB John Riggins.

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 26, 2013

Jets-Bills Pro Football Focus Numbers

Most yards per route run for the week? Santonio Holmes with 5.92. 2nd Golden Tate with 4.44 and 3rd Antonio Brown with 4.36.

— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) September 23, 2013

Perfect QB rating for Geno when throwing to the right 20+ yards: 4-of-4, 205 yards, 2 TDs. Graded +3.3 in that zone of the field. #Jets

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 23, 2013
Tight end roles - Cumberland: 14 passing snaps (12 routes), 34 run blocking. Winslow: 25 passing snaps (22 routes), 28 run blocking. #Jets

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 24, 2013
Holmes and Hill dominated Justin Rogers all game long. The #Bills CB graded -5.3 in pass cov after allowing 5-of-7 for 229 yards and 2 TDs.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 24, 2013
Geno Smith Time In Pocket: 3.32 secs average. 71.2% of dropbacks over 2.6 secs - 55.2% completion when over 2.6, 52.9% when under 2.6. #Jets

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 26, 2013
Nice to hear Darrin Walls could be starting this Sunday. Highest rated CB in preseason, never understood why the #Jets put Milliner ahead.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 26, 2013

Geno Smith Time In Pocket: 3.32 secs average. 71.2% of dropbacks over 2.6 secs - 55.2% completion when over 2.6, 52.9% when under 2.6. #Jets

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 26, 2013

Those numbers reflect what you see on the field - from shotgun, 5, 7-step dropbacks, shots downfield... Playing to Geno strengths basically.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 26, 2013

Jets-Bills Post Game Analysis

Mornhinweg very good at designing/scheming the down field passing game.

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 23, 2013

Down-field shake routes and deep-dagger routes that Geno threw to Hill and Holmes early are a staple of Mornhinweg's pass offense. #Jets

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 23, 2013

#Bills decimated at corner and it is showing. Justin Rogers = tough 2week stretch.

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) September 23, 2013

Jets defensive line dominates the Bills up front, Fred Jackson breaks away from Calvin Pace, goes for 60. Jets DLine did their job

— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) September 23, 2013

Weirdest aspect of an improved #Jets offense? Interrupting drives w/ancient Wildcat offerings, as if Nixon is dialing in plays from beyond.

— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) September 26, 2013

Through 1st quarter of Jets-Bills tape and biggest takeaway so far is that Jeff Cumberland cannot run block

— Mike Nolan (@nolan_nfl) September 28, 2013

In the 1st drive, two 3-step drops for Geno, quick slant to Kerley - 1st thrown too low, incomplete. 2nd on target, completed for 1st down.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 25, 2013

Making the rookie feel comfortable in the system, play from shotgun and read what's happening before throwing the ball.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) September 25, 2013

Jets Quoteables

When I told Stephen Hill the last time the Jets had 2 100+ receivers was 2006, he laughed and said he was in 10th grade. #nfl #jets

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 23, 2013

Pace doesnt see "any ill-effects" of Santonio's Lisfranc. "That’s a career-ending injury for a lot of ppl, so u have to tip your hat to him"

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 23, 2013

Rex liked the way "Dee responded." Also thought Kyle Wilson was having a good "but he let a personal thing affect him...that's a mistake"

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 23, 2013

Rex says "there was no way" Coples would play 60 snaps. But playing so well in 1st gm back. "The guy wants it. I'm telling you: He's hungry"

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 23, 2013

Rex says Winslow drawing attention from LB's and Safety's is allowing 1-on-1 matchups for the WR's. That's been the case last 2 games. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) September 23, 2013

Michael Kay asked Rex if #Jets run the risk of feeling too good about themselves. "Um, no. ...We kno we have to get a heckuva lot better."

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 23, 2013

that football and I’ve got to start sooner (rather than) later to do that."

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 23, 2013

Richardson has been dealing w a shoulder injury for some time, but Rex said Sheldon's always been ready by gameday #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) September 25, 2013

Wilkerson said Rex emphasized to the defense they need to create more turnovers. Titans have 0 turnovers this year. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 25, 2013

Ryan said Jets may ask Bohanon to play tailback & Reuland FB, or might look to pick up a RB. Powell and Green a go, Ivory didn't practice.

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 26, 2013

Special teams coordinator Ben Kotwica said Mike Goodson will have chance to contribute on ST when he returns from suspension after this week

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 26, 2013

Marty Mornhinweg on Jets RB Powell: "He turned it lose just a little bit. Heck of a ball game and I certainly was not surprised."

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 26, 2013

Mornhinweg on Geno Smith: "I'm impressed a little bit more each day." #Jets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 26, 2013

Mornhinweg: "(Rex) wanted to be very aggressive and attack, and that's one of the reasons I ended up here." #Jets #nyjets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 26, 2013

Marty Morhinweg said the attention paid to Kellen Winslow opens up opportunities for other receivers.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 26, 2013

Mornhinweg says he's only exaggerating a little when he says Santonio Holmes is at the Jets facility 16 to 18 hours a day. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 26, 2013

Jets' DC Thurman has a theory that the football gods let you get payback -- maybe not today, but be patient & you'll get a chance. #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 26, 2013

CB Kyle Wilson felt he was being wronged and officials didn't respond vs. Bills. Part of the frustration with all the fouls. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) September 26, 2013

When Jets go with four DBs, it depends on the package for whether Walls or Wilson is out there at corner opposite Cromartie, Ryan said.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 27, 2013

New York Giants had less total yards than the Jets had penalty yards yesterday. Thats just sad.

— BEST MADDEN 25 TIPS (@Moonlightswami) September 23, 2013

Matthew Stafford is the last QB from the class of 2009 still standing. Sanchez and Freeman now both watching from sideline.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 25, 2013

A month ago the #Jets were basically guaranteed a 2014 3rd rounder from the #Bucs. An 0-3 start, QB change & now .... not so much #Revis

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) September 25, 2013

So Brady (5.5 ypa) is second to last in yards per attempt, wanna guess where Geno is?

— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) September 25, 2013

Geno is averaging 7.9 ypa with a completion % of just 55 %. So, 45% of his passes have gone 0 yards. Once that comp % goes up tho..........

— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) September 25, 2013

Forgot that Titans have former #Jets DE Ropati Pitoitua, who has 15 total tackles. Rob Turner is also the starting center.

How the Jets shut down the Bills run game on Sunday (standout Coaches Film analysis from @MarcSesslerNFL). http://t.co/75w7uRnwoT

— Patrick Crawley (@pecrawleynfl) September 25, 2013

The line for Sunday's game is now Titans by 3.5, down from 5. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) September 26, 2013

Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains told the media the #Jets secondary is the best they'll face this season. #RevisWho

Best protection rate, season: DEN, CIN, DET, DAL, WAS. Worst: PHI, SEA, CLV, ATL, NYJ.

— Greg A. Bedard (@GregABedard) September 26, 2013

As of right now, @fboutsiders ranks the Patriots No. 1 in DVOA against a team's No. 1 receiver. Dolphins rank 5th, Jets 13th, Bills 27th.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) September 27, 2013

The turnover battle #Jets -6 vs. # Titans +5 --- yikes!!

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) September 28, 2013

' Brian. Schottenheimer.

That was a clear out. Even when the Rams run 4 vertical routes it's a short pass.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) September 27, 2013

Anybody still defending Brian Schottenheimer being "shackled" by the constraints of limited weapons? He has em’, now use em.’

— RumfordJohnny (@RumfordJohnny) September 27, 2013

Not a good sign that every quarterback under Brian Schottenheimer is Mark Sanchez, or becomes him.

— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) September 27, 2013

The Rams deserve that. I'm glad it happened. Shotgun deep pass on 3rd & 1. Someone needs to be fired (eherm, Schottenheimer)

— Chris Kouffman (@ckparrot) September 27, 2013

What was the plan with Tavon Austin? Seriously.

— SI_DougFarrar (@SI_DougFarrar) September 27, 2013

"Okay, guys --we're only down 17 now. Time for some Wildcat!"

Random Tweets

Mike Ditka on the Richardson trade: "I think it validates the stupidity of the Browns front office."

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) September 22, 2013

it's funny how a sideline argument will lead to talk of disconnect. So stupid.

— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) September 23, 2013

Most underrated (& in my opinion most important) part of evaluating a college QB for the pro game is, does he elevate the talent around him?

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) September 23, 2013

You can't quantify whether or not a QB elevates the talent around him, that's what sets scouting apart as an art, and not a science.

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) September 23, 2013

NFL trade deadline is October 29.

— Evan Silva (@evansilva) September 25, 2013

Been doing this QB evaluation thing for 15 years now, and I can tell you the best NFL QBs usually come from mediocre, less talented teams.

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) September 25, 2013

Last year Alex Smith did absolutely the right thing, sat out w/concussion symptoms, never got job back. Players talk about that.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) September 25, 2013

Interesting stat: despite the NFC being considered the stronger conference, the AFC has won 11 of 14 head to head matchups thus far in 2013.

From our research dept: Read option runs down league-wide from 6.1 YPC in 2012 to 5.0 this year. Still effective.
