Jets- Bills: Jets Pound the Rock | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
The Jets needed a win to keep any hope of making the playoffs this season and came up with a solid win on the road. Just like the last time the Jets played the Bills, they leaned on their running game to lead the way.
Winning on the Road
The Jets have a great offensive line, and tonight they pushed the Bills’ defense around for 249 yards on 43 total rushing attempts. Thomas Jones led the way with 23 carries for 109 yards on the ground.
This hundred yard game marked the sixth time Jones has reached that accomplishment this season. Jones now has over 1,000 yards rushing for the season to go with nine touchdowns on the year.
This marks the second rock solid fantasy football season Jones has had in a row, and he should continue his success for the rest of the year.
Braylon Edwards also hooked up through the air with Mark Sanchez for a touchdown. Edwards stats were cut a bit short as Sanchez had to leave the game early with a knee injury. The injury is not expected to keep Sanchez out for next week, however.
Lynch Responds with Touchdown
Marshawn Lynch has lost his starting role to Fred Jackson, but tonight it was Lynch that posted solid stats. Lynch only received six carries for the game but had 60 yards rushing and a 15-yard touchdown run.
I wouldn’t recommend either running back for the rest of the season until one of the runners steps up and gets consistent work.
