NY Jets Helmet Stickers: Week 12

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t even want to get into the type of game this was, but I do want to give honorable mentions to Quinnen Williams and Neville Hewitt. They both had very good games, but didn’t make the list this week. Here are the players who did:

Bronze Star: Josh Adams (8 carries for 74 yards)

Adams had not done much to impress during his Jets career, but that certainly changed against the Raiders. Adams brought life to a rushing game that was content with 3 yards and a cloud of dust by bursting through holes and dragging anyone who tried to stop him along for a ride. He ended up averaging over 9 yards per carry due to multiple chunk runs that Jets fans had not seen in years.

Silver Star: Jamison Crowder (5 catches, 47 yards, 2 TDs)

A lot of people have questioned Crowder’s position on the team while Perriman and Mims are healthy, but he was the star against the Raiders. He caught both of Sam Darnold’s touchdown passes and led the team in receiving, He is clearly the receiver that Darnold feels the most comfortable with and still leads the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. He hasn’t been the sole target as he was early in the season, but he is still by far the most reliable while Darnold is under center.

Gold Star: Ty Johnson (22 carries for 104 yards, 2 catches for 14 yards, 1 rushing TD)

I can’t say I’ve been tremendously impressed this year with Ty Johnson, but he was quite impressive against the Raiders. He tallied the first Jets 100 rushing game in the last two years, averaging a healthy 4.7 yards per carry, while adding a touchdown and two receptions. It’s hard to project much from his limited action, but after a very nice game against the Raiders, Johnson is now averaging nearly 2 yards more per carry than either Gore or Perine (Adams is over 3 yards above either of them in his limited action as well.) While the sample sizes are small, Johnson and Adams have shown far more life than either of the Jets two starters and it’s hard to fathom why Gore and Perine have been getting so much more action when both are averaging a paltry 3.7 yards per carry.

Quinnen Williams 14 points (4 gold, 1 silver)
