Jonathan Bullard Mens Jersey Danny Kelly: It was just last week that we were talking about Tyrann Mathieu as one of the favorites for Defensive Player of the Year, and now he’s been lost for the season with another ACL tear.

Joe Flacco Womens Jersey Because he played so many roles for Arizona, how do you think they will adapt? He was part corner, part safety, part nickelback, and part linebacker — so do you think they’ll try to use someone else to emulate what he can do, or does replacing the Honey Badger mean Arizona will have to turn to a number of different guys to play individual roles in different situations?

Per usual, the Jets have one of the better defenses in the league, ranked fifth overall. But the real difference with the Jets in 2015 has been their offensive firepower. They are 10th in yards and 11th in points scored, which is is a far cry from their ineptitude on that side of the ball under Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez.
Eleven-year NFL veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick has arguably been the best Jets quarterback since — wait for it — Chad Pennington. He’s passed for 3,428 yards this season, which means he’s only 404 yards from surpassing his career high. He’s completed 60.5 percent of his passes and thrown 26 touchdowns as well.
