JACKSONVILLE Curtis Martin Jerseys Stitched , Fla. (AP) — New York Jets left tackle Kelvin Beachum calls Sunday’s visit to Jacksonville an “identity game.”“We have to be able to run the ball,” Beachum said. “They know that and we know that.”The Jaguars (2-1) actually welcome it after what happened in the fourth quarter last week.“We want them to try it,” Jacksonville linebacker Telvin Smith said. “Try that. Try to come out and hit in us in the mouth. Try to come out and run it down our throats. … Try whatever you want to do against us.”The Titans pretty much did, at least late. Bruising running back Derrick Henry gained 45 of his 57 yards behind “heavy personnel” in the fourth quarter. Tennessee took advantage of sweltering heat and humidity and essentially beat the Jags at their own game and in their own backyard.Jacksonville’s defense will try to redeem itself against the Jets (1-2), who have one of the top rushing tandems in the league. Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell have combined for 310 yards and four touchdowns in three games.“Those backs together are a deadly combination,” Jaguars defensive tackle Calais Campbell said. “They are special. I’m a big fan of football, and I think Crowell and Powell are two of the most underrated players. People don’t talk about them, but they’re great running backs.”The Jets also torched Jacksonville on the ground in last season’s Week 4 matchup, which New York won 23-20 in overtime.Powell rushed for a career-high 163 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown in which the Jaguars failed to touch him down, and rookie Elijah McGuire added a 69-yard scoring run. New York finished with 256 yards rushing.“It’s definitely going to be a good challenge for us up front,” Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said.With rookie quarterback Sam Darnold making his fourth start and going against Jacksonville’s vaunted defensive front, it makes sense that the Jets would try to establish the run. Throw in that the Jaguars have looked vulnerable to ground attacks — rookie Saquon Barkley ran for 106 yards, including a 68-yard TD run in the fourth — and New York would be silly to do anything else.“Because they’re good doesn’t mean you’re not going to challenge them White C.J. Mosley Jerseys ,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said. “We feel like we have good players, too, and we’re going to challenge them and do the things we need to do to win the ballgame. Understandably, every week you’re going to have to go through good players to try to win the ballgame, and that’s what we have to do. You can’t shy away from them. You have to do your job better than they do their job.”Here are some other things to know about the Jets and Jaguars:FOURNETTE RETURNS?Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is expected to return after missing the last two games because of a strained right hamstring. Fournette ran nine times for 41 yards in first half of the season opener against the Giants, but has been sidelined since.He practiced on a limited basis all week.FAVORITE TARGETQuincy Enunwa has quickly established himself as Darnold’s favorite target.Through three games, the receiver has seen 29 passes come his way, and has a team-leading 17 catches for 212 yards and a touchdown. The next-closest receiver is Terrelle Pryor, who has been targeted just 14 times with eight catches for 158 yards. Robby Anderson has 10 targets with six receptions for 90 yards.“I’m just going to put the ball in the receiver’s hands who is open,” Darnold said. “That’s my job, is to find the guy who is open, whether it’s a running back, receiver or tight end.”PROBLEMATIC PENALTIESThe Jaguars will try to reduce their number of penalties. They have been flagged 26 times for 265 yards.“Obviously, it is hurting our football team C.J. Mosley Jerseys 2019 ,” coach Doug Marrone said. “We are not a team that is built to overcome long situations. We keep talking about it. We keep stressing it.”UNDER PRESSUREThe Jets have 23 quarterback hits, according to Radar360, a mark that ties them with Minnesota for the fourth most in the NFL.They also have eight sacks, tying them for 10th in the league. New York has four sacks in each of the last two games, the first time they have that many in consecutive games since 2015.Despite that success, defensive end Leonard Williams has yet to get a sack — and he registered no statistics against Cleveland.“I thought Leonard played well,” Bowles said. “He took the pressure off the other guys. They sent two or three guys at him almost every other play. But Leonard caused a lot of other people to make plays and that doesn’t show up on the stat sheet. I’m happy with what he did.” FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets had just dropped to 0-3 after a brutally bad loss at New England and the players were frustrated and searching for answers.Then came a sliver of optimism in an unexpected spot: the schedule, in the form of a bye-week break.“Honestly looking back at it, I thought it was too early, but we need it,” safety Jamal Adams said. “We need it to get away, to reflect and everybody look at themselves in the mirror. Players, coaches and everybody. We just need to ask what we can do better and everybody is going to do that.“I challenge the team. We’ll be fine when we get back.”Coach Adam Gase half-jokingly said he never thought he’d be happy to have a bye so early in the season. But that’s where things stand for the Jets in Week 4 of a season already at a critical point.“We definitely need to get healthy White Le’Veon Bell Jersey ,” center Ryan Kalil said. “More than that, we’ve got to reset and we’ve got to go back to work.”While it’s hard to blame any Jets players or coaches for being happy for the break, there’s plenty of blame to go around for the dismal start.The laundry list could start with former general manager Mike Maccagnan not hitting on enough of his draft picks, leaving the team without depth in key areas. Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson has taken heat for not deciding sooner to fire Maccagnan, leaving new GM Joe Douglas in a tough spot as far as building a roster for this season while taking over in June.Gase’s playcalling has left something to be desired, too, with the expected “electric” offense still not powered up. The Jets haven’t scored an offensive touchdown in nine quarters, and the defense has accounted for more points so far: 15-11.There are certainly valid excuses, namely New York having to start three quarterbacks in three games. Sam Darnold was sidelined by mononucleosis after Week 1. Then, backup Trevor Siemian suffered ligament damage in an ankle, leaving third-stringer Luke Falk to go from the practice squad to sudden starter.“It would be nice to get (No.) 14 back,” Gase said of Darnold. “That always helps things because he makes some bad things go away.”Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was lost for the season with a neck injury, and tight end Chris Herndon is serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.The offensive line, despite upgrades with Kalil at center and Kelechi Osemele at left guard Le’Veon Bell Jersey 2019 , hasn’t been anything close to a cohesive unit. They also haven’t opened many holes for Le’Veon Bell, who has rushed for 163 yards on 56 carries — a measly 2.9 average.“I just know this team has a lot of talent,” Bell said, insisting he’s not frustrated. “We just have to put it together. It’s a new system, guys’ first time playing together, a new coaching staff. We’ve just got to mesh everything together and we’ve got to get on board.”The defense has also had its issues, with linebackers C.J. Mosley and Jordan Jenkins, and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams all injured. Top cornerback Trumaine Johnson was benched, and defensive lineman Leonard Williams has yet to get a sack.“There’s no point in sitting here and beating each other up, pointing fingers,” Gase said. “That’s not going to do anything. We’ve got to go back to work and we’ve got to get things fixed.”Otherwise, things could really start to spiral — and there won’t be any breaks in the schedule.At least, not until the season is over.It doesn’t get any easier for the Jets as they continue a rough stretch of games coming out of the bye, starting with a road game at Philadelphia. Then White Sam Darnold Jerseys , New York is home against Dallas and New England before another road game at Jacksonville.The game against the Eagles could mark the return of Darnold. The second-year quarterback will have tests next Monday that will determine if his swollen spleen has reduced enough to get medical clearance to practice next week and play.“Even if everything was great and we were 3-0, I’d want to be out there helping the team,” Darnold said. “So, it’s just, for me as a competitor, I’ve always wanted to go out there and help my team win. So, I’m anxious to do that and trying to get healthy as fast as I can.”Darnold said earlier in the week he believes the Jets will “go on a little run here” after the break and that it will be “fun.”The latter has certainly been in short supply so far. Winning, of course, can change all that in a hurry.“I think getting an extra week for guys to get healthy and for certain guys to come back is definitely going to help us out,” wide receiver Jamison Crowder said. “It’s still early. Like they say, it’s not about how you start, but how you finish.”
