Luck: I wasn’t good enough

The Jets cornerback is known best for his suffocating coverage.

So he conveyed a prime-time execution.

The inactive list are now available for the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts Monday night football game.

“The magnitude of the game. You’re going to get a barrage from everywhere”. “And we made a lot of turnovers today”, added Revis, who proved he hasn’t lost a step since undergoing knee surgery in 2012. Saturday started his career as an undrafted free agent in Baltimore, was cut and managed an electrical supply store for a year before landing in Indy as a free agent. “It’s Week 2 in the National Football League”. Coach Todd Bowles’ revamped defense was vital to their latest win.

In addition, the Jets forced five turnovers, four of which could be credited to the pressure that the Jets were getting in the backfield. For the second week in a row they committed to stopping the run and the Jets finished the game with only 101 rush yards.

Ryan Fitzpatrick finished 22 of 34 for 244 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception. And so did his defense. New York responded well with a Fitzpatrick TD pass to Brandon Marshall, and the scoreboard read 17-7 with 6:20 left.

Jets safety Calvin Pryor picked it off and surged to within nine yards of the end zone, setting up a six-yard touchdown pass from Fitzpatrick to Eric Decker. “That’s when it’s tough”, Luck said.

“This is a quality team”. Starling Marte and Jody Mercer had four hits each, and A.J Burnett got his first win since July 20. “And this game helps”. Strong bounce-back game from McAfee, who had three punts for a 49.7 yard average and left one inside the 20. Luck completed 21 of 37 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions. “I felt good during warmups”, Cromartie said. “But I’m not”.

Owner Woody Johnson stood outside the locker room and shook hands with each player and coach.

Luck appeared to get his act together on the opening drive of the second half before a momentum-crushing gaffe by a member of his supporting cast. New York now has 10 takeaways through two games. Potentially a precautionary move by the team, Davis has suffered concussions in the past and is known for his hard hitting style of play. He will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. Coming into the game the Colt were already without three of their regular cornerbacks, why wouldn’t they bring someone aboard? They also recovered a fumble by running back Frank Gore at the goal line – Revis snatched that one – to deny Indianapolis (0-2) what would have been a third-quarter touchdown. The Colts are scoreless in the first half this season. But once again, the Colts missed an opportunity to score.

The Colts moved deep into Jets’ territory on the ensuing drive, but kicker Adam Vinatieri missed on a 29-yard field-goal attempt with 4:02 remaining in the first quarter. And it was great to see Robert Mathis back in the lineup; he had a quarterback hurry – believe it came on his first snap – and seemed to have most of his old explosion back.
