The Jets made it official, placing TE Chris Herndon and G Brian Winters on season-ending injured reserve. They now have 13 players on IR, eating up $40 million in cap space. They promoted CB Kyron Brown from the practice squad and re-signed LB B.J. Bello.

TE Chris Herndon (fractured rib) and RG Brian Winters (dislocated shoulder) likely are done for the season. In Winter's case, surgery is a possibility. Winters, 28, is the second-longest tenured Jet. This raises questions about his future. He has one year left on his contract ($7.5M cap charge), so there's a chance he could be released in the anticipated OL overhaul. Winters is respected for his toughness, but this will be the fourth time in the last six years that he finishes the season on IR.

After playing in only one game over the previous 26 months, Jets rookie CB Bless Austin (sixth-round pick) made his NFL debut. He played two-plus quarters, recorded two pass break-ups and forced a fumble. The former Rutgers player missed most of the 2017 and 2018 seasons due to major knee injuries. His only game since 2017 was Sept. 1, 2018 against Texas State. Quite a comeback. Said Austin: "I got a goal in mind. I'm on a mission."

Jets safety Adams silences critics with banner day

Jamal Adams finished with a team-high nine tackles and two sacks in the Jets' win over the Giants after taking umbrage with the perception that his recent feud with management created a distraction.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell missed some plays in the fourth quarter because of sore ribs. He said "really didn't want to take too many carries on my body," so they went with Bilal Powell. Bell said "of course" he will play next week.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Yep, Sam Darnold said it: "We need every win from here on out because we still have a chance. If we get on a roll here and we win out, we've got a chance to make the playoffs." According to the ESPN playoff predictor, the Jets (2-7) would have a 75 percent chance to make the playoffs IF they win out. If they lose to, say, the Ravens, it drops to 7 percent.


Sam Darnold: We still believe

Jets QB Sam Darnold discussed what allowed him to be successful against the Giants and explained why this season isn't lost yet.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jamal Adams' day: Two sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one touchdown and a team-high nine tackles. Said Adams: "This is nothing, man. This is just the start."

Players were buzzing about Jamal Adams' strip sack/TD. LB Jordan Jenkins said, "He may talk a lot, but if he keeps doing that, I can deal with it." LB Brandon Copeland called it an "elite" play, adding, "I've seen Von Miller do that. To see a safety do something like that is something special."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Coach Adam Gase called it "a big deal" that Sam Darnold played an interception-free game. Gase: "It's been a couple of weeks in a row where he's walked out of these games where he's been frustrated with what's happened and the turnovers and the missed opportunities. I think for him to play a game like this is valuable."

Jets injury report: RG Brian Winters went out in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and didn't return. He will have an MRI in the morning. There's some concern around the team that it could be serious. Winters has been the only constant on the offensive line.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Jamal Adams' performance today was worth 40.3 fantasy points, using the scoring system we list in our weekly IDP rankings. That was just two-tenths of a point shy of the highest single-game score of 2019 (Shaquil Barrett, 40.5 points in Week 3).


Eww York: Darnold, Jets hold on to beat Jones, Giants 34-27

Le'Veon Bell scored a go-ahead 1-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter after a 33-yard pass interference penalty on DeAndre Baker, and the New York Jets rallied and then held on to beat the Giants 34-27 on Sunday for Big Apple bragging rights.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Well, the Jets didn't fold. They rallied from a deficit (really!) and beat the Giants, 34-27. The defense shut down Saquon Barkley, recorded six sacks and scored on Jamal Adams' strip sack. QB Sam Darnold played turnover-free ball for a change. The Jets (2-7) have a long ways to go, but they showed some heart.
