    Here's a look at how the Jets offense and their vaunted running game has faired since their week 9 Bye week. I've only included the first half of the Indy game and the 2nd Bengals game, since I think only games where both teams are trying to win should be taken seriously:

    Vs Jaguars (Jets Lost 24-22)
    Jags D Season Stats:_________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 23.8 (24th)_____________Jets scored: 22
    RUSH YDS: 116.4 (19th)______Jets Rush YDs: 110
    Yards per Carry: 4.1 (11th)____Jets Yards Per carry: 3.8

    vs NE (Jets Lost 31-14)
    Pats D Season Stats:_________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 17.8 (5th)_____________Jets scored: 14
    RUSH YDS: 110.5 (13th)______Jets Rush YDs: 104
    Yards per Carry: 4.4 (20th)____Jets Yards Per carry: 4.0

    vs Carolina (Jets Won 17-6)
    Car D Season Stats:_________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 19.2 (9th)______________Jets scored: 17
    RUSH YDS: 124.8 (20th)_______Jets Rush YDs: 139
    Yards per Carry: 4.4 (20th) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 3.6

    vs Buffalo (Jets won 19-13)
    Buf D Season Stats:__________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 20.4 (16th)______________Jets scored: 19
    RUSH YDS: 156.3 (30th)_______Jets Rush YDs: 249
    Yards per Carry: 4.7 (30th) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 5.8

    vs TB (Jets won 26-3)
    Buf D Season Stats:___________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 25.0 (27th)______________Jets scored: 26
    RUSH YDS: 158.2 (32nd)_______Jets Rush YDs: 175
    Yards per Carry: 4.8 (32nd) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 4.3

    vs ATL (Jets lost 10-7)
    ATL D Season Stats:___________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 20.3 (14th)______________Jets scored: 7
    RUSH YDS: 106.9 (10th)_______Jets Rush YDs: 99
    Yards per Carry: 4.0 (8th) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 3.3

    First Half vs Indy (Indy Led 9-3 at Half)
    Indy D Season Stats:___________Jets Offensive Stats:
    PPG: 9.6* (8th)______________Jets scored: 3
    RUSH YDS: 63.5*(24th)_______Jets Rush YDs: 54
    Yards per Carry: 4.3 (16th) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 3.4
    *Indy's PPG and Rush Yards Allowed are halved, since I only examined the first half (1st unit vs. 1st unit).

    Playoff Game vs. Cincy (Jets won 24-14)
    PPG: 18.5 (6th)______________Jets scored: 24
    RUSH YDS: 102.6 (9th)_______Jets Rush YDs: 171
    Yards per Carry: 4.0 (8th) ____Jets Yards Per carry: 4.1


    The Jets rushed for more yards than their opponent averaged giving up in 4 of 8 games. They ran for more yards per carry than their opponent was giving up only 2 times in 8 games. In these 8 games, the Jets averaged 146.8 yards per game (4th best in the NFL)** for a 4.1 avg (19th best in the NFL)** , but if you exclude the games against the the 30th ranked Bills Run D and the 32nd ranked Bucs Run D, the Jets averaged 123 yards per game (11th best in the NFL)** for a 3.6 yard avg (30th best in the NFL)**. So is the Jets running game that good or are the teams they played that ******?
    **Rankings based on Final Regular Season Stats

    Personally, I think all these stats mean dick, but since the Jets fans and many pundits seem to think the stats prove that the Chargers are doomed, I thought I'd take a closer look. Looks like the Jets got fat on some really really bad run defenses and were pretty bad against everyone else, including some average run defenses. Really not all that impressive.

    very good analysing. When I looked to the 9-7 Winning/Losing teams I didn't noticed a dangerous thread.
    Having a good start the Chargers won't get difficulties. And even if not I believe in Norv's playcalling and Philip's arm in the end.

    There is no reason to Analyze this game beyond the following:

    Philip Rivers is a Warlock.

    Mark Sanchez is a newborn baby calf.


    Veal.

    It's what's for dinner.

    I know you're right. I was just bored and trying to distract myself from the stitches that were put into my left eyeball two days ago. Yes, that's right, eyeball stitches. They are as pleasant as they sound.
