The numbers are in. All but one or two, that is.
RB Chris Johnson, with Curtis Martin's 28 off limits, finally settled on 21. And three touchdowns are almost as good as four.
But who lost No. 21? That was CB
And Jeremy Reeves, who had been 31, moved to 41 in this game of musical uniforms.

51—DE IK Enemkpali
81—WR Shaq Evans
53—LB Jeremiah George
62—DL Kerry Hyder

Johnson will become the 17th Jets player to wear No. 21 in a regular-season game, but only sixth RB, along with FB Clark Gaines and of course LaDainian Tomlinson. Here are all the 21's in franchise history:
