    Run defense helps Jets win season opener

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Regular Season

    It's been a while since the New York Jets started a season with expectations being so low. Most experts predicted the Gang Green would win 5-6 games at most; some went as far as anticipating a 3-13 season. The Jets went into the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as 3-point underdogs. Not a single "expert" on the entire ESPN panel picked the Gang Green to win this one. The Jets, however, had different ideas, as a solid showing from rookie QB Geno Smith, tremendous play from the young defensive line, and a few dumb mistakes from their opponent ensured that the Jets started a season with a win for the fourth time during Rex Ryan's era.
