The Jets get pumped up for the game

With his J.P. Losman sack in the second quarter Jets' linebacker Victor Hobson set a new season-high in sacks with 3.0.
On the very next play, Jets' cornerback Justin Miller forced an Anthony Thomas fumble which he recovered. Both the forced fumble and the recovery were the first of Miller's career.
The Jets have now recovered seven fumbles and converted those opportunities into points six times (four touchdowns, two field goals).
With his start today, quarterback Chad Pennington recorded 50 for his career and 13 in this season. The 13 starts, ties a career-high set in 2004.

Willis McGahee's 57-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the first rushing touchdown the Jets have allowed since the second quarter Week Eight vs. Cleveland (18 quarters, 290 minutes, 38 seconds of game time). It was also the first touchdown the Jets have allowed in the first quarter since Week Five at Jacksonville (eight games) and the longest run of the year allowed by the Jets.
