Darrelle Revis Injury: Twitter Reaction

As you might expect, Twitter is aflame with discussion of the season-ending knee injury suffered Sunday by New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis in a game against the Miami Dolphins.

At the bottom you will find a scrolling list of Revis comments. We will leave that there for a while, mostly for your amusement.

Here are some of the Revis tweets we've sene thus far:

"I love revis as a player, and he's great to interview. He'll fight back from this, but it sucks. Huge blow."
-- Mike Silver

"Revis is out for the season noooooooooooooooooooo):"
-- King Johnson with the quintessential Jets' fan reaction

" Can't Tebow just lay hands on Revis' knee?"
-- DamonBruce

"DRevis gone for season. Now Jets have only 1 hope: Start Tebow, let him ignite, unify undermanned squad as did in Denver."
-- Skip Bayless

"Any way you slice it, it's an awful day for the Jets"
-- WFAN

Jets 23, Dolphins 20 (OT): Rex Ryan Says 'We'll Take It'

For a long while Sunday it looked like the New York Jets were not going to win. They trailed 10-0 and 17-13 during regulation and had to sweat as Dan Carpenter of the Miami Dolphins missed field goal from 48 yards in overtime, but the Jets came away with a 23-20 overtime victory. In reality, that is what mattered.

"Every win in this league is a great win. They're tough to get. I don't know if I've ever been in a tougher one than this. Clearly it was a team effort and did we get breaks -- we certainly got some breaks, no question about it."

"It looked rough for us for a while. We kept hanging in there. Good things happened to us. We feel very fortunate."

The Jets might not have been so fortunate in the injury department. There is fear that star cornerback Darrelle Revis might have suffered a torn ACL.

Official word on that will come later. For now, however, the Jets can feel good about being 2-1 and having won a game it looked like they were going to lose.

"It was a roller coaster, no doubt," quarterback Mark Sanchez said. "This team fought, we battled. You can't teach resiliency."

Jets-Dolphins Final Score: New York Gets Ugly 23-20 Overtime Victory

To say that the New York Jets escaped with an ugly overtime victory in Miami would be a disservice to the words 'escape' and 'ugly.' But style points notwithstanding, Nick Folk's 33-yard field goal sends the Jets home at 2-1 after a 23-20 OT win versus the Dolphins.

Mark Sanchez completed just 21-of-45 passes, but threw for 306 yards and a touchdown, and wideout Santonio Holmes topped 100 yards (nine catches, 147 yards) for the first time in 28 games in the win. Dolphins rookie signal caller Ryan Tannehill completed 16-of-36 passes for 196 yards and an interception that safety LaRon Landry returned for a touchdown. Daniel Thomas ran for 69 yards in place of Reggie Bus, who rushed for 61 yards but left the game with a left knee injury.

[Related: SB Nation Recap]

The injury news for the Jets was seemingly worse. Cornerback Darrelle Revis, who missed last week's game with a concussion, left the game with a non-contact injury to his left knee. Wide receiver Stephen Hill pulled his hamstring and was replaced by Chaz Schilens. It is expected that he will have an MRI tomorrow with the Jets hoping for the best.

The Jets squandered many opportunities in the game and were lucky to be victorious. Sanchez threw an interception in the end zone in the third quarter and they settled for a field goal after having first-and-goal at the Miami 1. Miami kicker Dan Carpenter missed a 48-yard field goal in overtime that would have won the game for the Dolphins before the Jets' final possession.

The Tim Tebow Experience saw him run for a first down on a fake punt and also get hit in the helmet by a Sanchez third down pass. He finished with zero yards on two carries.

The Jets play host to the San Francisco 49ers, who were upset in Minnesota by the Vikings, on Sunday, while the 1-2 Dolphins are at Arizona.

Jets Vs. Dolphins Preview: Facts, Stats And Analysis

It has been a tale of two teams so far for the the New York Jets, and considering cornerback Darrelle Revis dubbed Sunday's matchup in Miami versus the Dolphins a "must win," it would seem wise for the Jets to play more like the team from Week 1 against Buffalo rather than last week in Pittsburgh.

Two Steps Back Quarterback Mark Sanchez struggled mightily versus the Steelers (10-27, 138 yards) after filling up the stat sheet on Opening Day against the Bills. The Jets were able to sack Ben Roethlisberger three times but could not muster anything offensively, and Tim Tebow was once again kept under wraps as the Jets were defeated 27-10 at Heinz Field.

LEADERS
Passing

Jets: Mark Sanchez (404 yards, 4 TDs)
Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill (419 yards, 1 TD)

Rushing
Jets: Shonn Greene (117 yards, 1 TD)
Dolphins: Reggie Bush (241 yards, 2 TDs)

Receiving
Jets: Jeremy Kerley (112 yards, 1 TD)
Dolphins: Brian Hartline (161 yards, 0 TD)

Tackles
Jets: Davis Harris (17)
Dolphins: Karlos Dansby (17)

State of Gang Green
Sanchez will be without one of his favorite targets in tight end Dustin Keller, who will miss his second straight game with a right hamstring injury. But Revis returns after suffering a minor concussion Week 1 versus Buffalo. Garrett McIntyre will start at linebacker again in place of Bryan Thomas, who was released by the team on Saturday.

Flying Phish
Tannehill got his first career victory last week versus the Oakland Raiders, throwing for 200 yards and a touchdown while adding another on the ground, in a 35-10 romp. But the Raiders' defense is not on the same level as the Jets', and the rookie QB will be hard-pressed to have similar success against Revis and Co.

What to Watch For
The Jets need Holmes to get back to being the game-changing wideout of 2010 if they are going to make noise in the AFC this season, and this game would be a good place to start. Holmes, who has not gone over 100 yards in his last 27 games, faces a Dolphins defense that is among the NFL's worst against the pass (627 yards allowed in two games). But being without Keller means that Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley need to step up and be factors again.

And could this finally be the game the Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano unleashes Tebow - in the stadium where the wildcat was born? Allowing Tebow some plays to keep the Miami defense guessing could take some of the pressure of Sanchez and help him take advantage of the Dolphins issues in the secondary.

On defense, the Jets get Revis back and that should make it extremely difficult for Tannehill. Reggie Bush is a star and will get plenty of touches, but Rex Ryan will have a gameplan designed to limit the team's effectiveness on the ground, forcing a rookie QB to make big plays if Miami wants to have a chance in this game.

Quotable
"This is a must-win for us. We need this win. The expectations are high for us to go down there and get a win." -- Revis on the importance of the game versus Miami

Jets Release Bryan Thomas, Add Donnie Fletcher

The New York Jets have released linebacker Bryan Thomas, an unexpected move for the longest tenured member of the team. Taking his spot on the roster will be cornerback Donnie Fletcher, a rookie out of Boston College who was signed to the 53-man roster off the practice squad.

Thomas has been struggling with a hamstring issue and was listed as doubtful for this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. He was New York's first-round pick in 2002 and has the second-most postseason appearances in franchise history. But head coach Rex Ryan and GM Mike Tannenbaum were more concerned about depth in the secondary, so they opted to go with the rookie Fletcher.

Because of his tenure in the league, Thomas' contract is guaranteed this season and he could be back with the team in the coming week. He's now a free agent so it's unlikely he's out of work for long. Thomas recorded just one tackle in the Jets' season-opening win over the Buffalo Bills.

After a Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Jets now travel to Miami this Sunday for a divisional matchup against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Football Start/Sit Week 3: New York Jets Edition

After two weeks of the NFL season, fantasy owners are starting to get a sense of what kind of team they have. Once Week 3 is completed on Monday night, the picture will be even clearer.

Here is your guide fantasy guide to the New York Jets for their Week 3 matchup in Miami against the Dolphins.

Quarterback: The Dolphins come into the game tied for 30th in the league versus the pass, allowing 627 yards through the air in two games. On paper, any opposing quarterback would be a must-start fantasy player, except Mark Sanchez does not play on paper.

In two games, it has been two different Sanchez' performances, as he continues to be consistent at being inconsistent. After throwing for three TDs in an Opening Week rout of Buffalo, the Sanchise came crashing back to Earth in Pittsburgh, completing just 10-of-27 passes for 138 yards and a score.

Since it is only Week 3 and there has not been a major quarterback injury thus far, you surely have a better option than Sanchez. Sit him!

Running Back: Shonn Greene underwent concussion tests twice in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh and once again on Monday, but the fourth-year back from Iowa said he is ready for Miami. The Fish are fourth in the NFL against the run, and with Sanchez struggling, expect the Dolphins to load the box to stop Greene. Sit him!

Receivers: Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill will go as far as Sanchez takes them. Holmes, always a threat to explode at his QB on the sidelines, has been targeted 19 times in two games, but he has only seven receptions for 96 yards. So the balls are coming his way - he just needs to find a way to catch more of them.

Hill burst on the scene with a two-TD effort in Week 1 only to disappear and notch a goose egg last week versus the Steelers. The Dolphins pass defense is the polar opposite of the one in Pittsburgh, so a good game out of either receiver is not out of the question. Start them both!

Defense/Special Teams: Last week, the Jets defense recorded three sacks against one of the toughest QBs to bring down in NFL history, Ben Roethlisberger. Imagine how they will fare against rookie signalcaller Ryan Tannehill. Gang Green had three INTs and two scores in Week 1, but fell back to earth last week in Steeltown. Expect Rex Ryan to have a couple of tricks up his sleeve for rookie coach Joe Philbin and his first-year quarterback. Start them!

Jets-Dolphins Odds: New York Favored By Three

The New York Jets travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins as 3-point favorites. The line opened at 3 and has moved little since then. Some sportsbooks have the Jets as 2.5-point favorites, but most all have kept the line at 3. The total for the game is 40 points.

Both teams are 1-1 in the standings and 1-1 against the spread, and neither team has played a close game yet this season. The Jets opened their season with a convincing win in Buffalo, but failed to cover as 4.5-point underdogs in Pittsburgh, losing 27-10. New York's offense was impressive in the opener, going for 384 yards, but was limited to just 219 yards against the Steelers.

The Dolphins have a similar story, but in reverse. Miami got manhandled by the Texans in Week 1, but won outright against Oakland as 1.5-point underdogs by the score of 35-13. The Dolphins managed 275 yards of offense against Houston, but turned the ball over four times; against the Raiders they went for 452 yards with zero turnovers.

Finding out which offense will show up for both these teams will have to wait until 1 p.m. Sunday.
