Another solid effort last night from the Jets. 69 rushing yards didn’t get the job done and the Texans remain undefeated with the 23-17 win. Don’t be fooled by that score. Joe McKnight had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown (box score). At this pace, the Texans should wrap up the AFC South by Thanksgiving (NFL standings).
As for the Jets, the rushing defense showed how bad it is. Arian Foster went for 152 yards. The Jets rush defense is ranked 31st in the NFL, allowing 172 yds/gm.
