Pregame Prep: Rewind the Week 3 Storylines

From the Week 2 Postgame Through Friday's Practice, Here's How the Team Prepped for MNF


After returning home from Lambeau with a disappointing loss, the Jets were focused on putting GB behind them and getting ready for the Monsters of the Midway. With these 8 videos to tell the story, here's a look at how the week progressed.

Before the Jets could turn the page on their Week 2 loss, they had to face questions about the blown lead and the controversial timeout. Marty Mornhinweg stepped in front of the camera and addressed the media. The Jets OC explained the '4th down, game-winning type of situation' that his offense was up against and his 'surprise' that the timeout was called.

Injuries sidelined Eric Decker and Dee Milliner when the Jets took the practice field on Wednesday to begin gameplanning for Chicago. The status of both players quickly became the storyline of the day. Eric Allen and Amanda Pflugrad addressed the injury report and the impact that Decker's absence could have on the offense.

WR Jeremy Kerley also weighed-in on the wideout situation. Despite Decker's questionable status for Monday night, JK expressed no lack of confidence in the receiving corp, saying 'You don't have to get ready when you stay ready.'

Regardless of who lines-up on O for the Jets, former QB Chad Pennington believes this is a week when the offense needs to 'seize the opportunity and set the tempo.'

Dawan Landry and the Jets D echoed Pennington's statements about the challenge Jay Cutler and his big targets present for the secondary. The Mentor said you 'can't really simulate Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery' in practice.

After hearing from Jets players, coaches and analysts, Marc Trestman & Jay Cutler gave Jets Nation a look 'behind enemy lines.' The Bears HC and QB spoke to the New York media about their week of prep.

With a prolific offense coming to town, the Jets D is looking to improve upon last week's performance when it notched 4 sacks and 11 QB pressures. Quinton Coples stressed the need to get to Cutler early and often on Monday night.

The gameplan is in place, the primetime matchup is fast approaching and EA wrapped up the week with his 5 keys to a Jets victory.
