Here’s a compliation of notes and states from the crew on the NFL Network research desk and the NFL communication offices.
I’d start fixing the Jets by looking at their running game. The Jets look like a bad, dysfunctional running team right now.

What a finish! Jaguars win on a bomb from David Garrard to […]
