New York Jets coach Rex Ryan termed his team’s effort in Sunday’s 45-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles a “horrendous performance” during his post-game press conference.
The Jets are now 8-6 and still in position to be a wild-card team in the AFC heading into Saturday’s showdown with the New York Giants.
:We entered the game thinking that we had to run the table and that we controlled our own destiny. We come out of the game, we need to win the rest of the games and we control our own destiny," Ryan said. “It’s sitting right in front of us. We’ve gotta win two games.”
The Jets surrendered 420 yards of total offense to Philadelphia Sunday and turned the ball over four times.
“It does count as only one game, but that’s as bad it as gets,” Ryan said. “Give up that many points you’re not going to beat anybody.”
The Giants also suffered a bad loss Sunday as they fell to the Washington Redskins, 23-10.
“We’re both fighting for our playoff lives, but to say there won’t be any extra incentive isn’t right. We go to the same restauarant, gusy date the same girls. I don’t know,” Ryan said. “You want to own your town you have to win that game.”
The Philadelphia Eagles (6-8) defeated the New York Jets (8-6) 45-19 on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Jets have to be absolutely stunned by the result of the game. The Eagles were just 1-5 at home this season. They certainly didn't look the part on Sunday. Philadelphia struck early and often. After the Eagles jumped out to a 28-0 lead, the Jets started to make a game out of the contest by scoring 13 unanswered points to make it 28-13 at halftime.
However, after the halftime break, the Eagles kept scoring. They added 10 more points in the third quarter and a touchdown to kick off the fourth quarter. The Jets got a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter but failed on the two-point conversion to make the score 45-19.
Both teams committed four turnovers apiece but the Eagles made the most of them. Their first touchdown came via fumble return. Mark Sanchez' first interception set up a touchdown drive for the Eagles, as did his fumble. The Jets got 10 points off of the Eagles' turnovers. It was not so much the points as the timing of the turnovers which made the difference as they allowed Philadelphia to build the 28-0 lead.
Mark Sanchez finished the game with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 150 yards passing. New York was unable to muster 100 yards on the ground. The Eagles piled up 420 total yards. LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek both had huge days for the Eagles. McCoy had 3 touchdowns and 102 yards rushing. Celek had 156 yards (on five catches) and a touchdown. Michael Vick passed for 276 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Vick also had a rushing touchdown.
The Jets will look to shake off this brutal loss when they take on the New York Giants on Dec. 24 at MetLife Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles lead the New York Jets 38-13 after the third quarter at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles led 28-13 at halftime. After scoring the first 28 points of the game, they conceded 13 in a row to the Jets.
In the third quarter, the scoring went the Eagles' way again. The first score was a 1-yard touchdown run by Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy. The score ended a 5-play, 89-yard drive for the Eagles. It was a quick drive that was set up by a 73-yard catch by Eagles tight end Brent Celek.
The catch looked like a decent gain in the making when Celek caught it but he just kept running all the way down to the 1-yard line. McCoy scored on the next play. The Eagles extended the lead even further when Alex Henery added a field goal.
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was dinged up on a play during the quarter. He left the field with his right arm hanging down. He didn't miss any plays during the quarter but received treatment on his neck when he came off the field.
Sanchez threw a tipped pass interception with under five minutes remaining in the quarter that set the Eagles up at the Jets' 26-yard line. The Jets escaped the turnover without harm as the Eagles knocked themselves out of field goal range with penalties.
There's still one quarter to play, but time is running out on a potential comeback.
The Philadelphia Eagles lead the New York Jets 28-13 at halftime at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.
The Eagles carried a 14-0 lead into the second quarter for the damage continued for the Jets. The Eagles had a defensive and offensive touchdown in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Eagles got two more offensive touchdowns.
Michael Vick started the second quarter scoring with an 11-yard scramble for a touchdown.
The rushing touchdown was Vick’s second touchdown of the game. He threw a touchdown pass to Brent Celek in the first quarter. LeSean McCoy got the second Eagles touchdown of the quarter on a 9-yard run.
The Jets finally got on the scoreboard with a Nick Folk 39-yard field goal. They added their first touchdown a couple of minutes later when Mark Sanchez connected with Santonio Holmes, whose first-quarter fumble gave the Eagles a 7-0 lead, for a 25-yard touchdown pass.
Holmes caught the ball in the end zone behind three Eagles defenders and mocked them with a wing flapping celebration of his touchdown.
The Jets added three more points with another field goal with 48 seconds remaining in the first half. Can the Jets comeback in the second half after trailing 28-0 through most of the second quarter? They’ve already scored 13 consecutive points to get within shouting distance.
The Philadelphia Eagles lead the New York Jets 14-0 after the first quarter of play at Lincoln Financial Field.
Eagles defensive end Juqua Parker had the first score of the first quarter on a 46-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Parker picked up the fumble by Santonio Holmes who caught a pass from Mark Sanchez but was stripped. Parker had good blocking in front of him and was untouched as he ran in for the score.
The Eagles extended their lead later in the quarter when Michael Vick capped a seven-play, 77-yard drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass to Brent Celek. Celek was being tackled short of the end zone but was not going to be denied on the play.
The Jets could only manage 38 yards of offense in the first quarter while the Eagles had 129 yards. Philadelphia will be on offense again as the second quarter begins.
The New York Jets Week 15 injury report is out, and luckily Gang Green isn't missing too much for its match up at the Philadelphia Eagles, which will be played a Lincoln Financial Field. The most notable Jets to miss the game Sunday will be rookie noise tackle Kenrick Ellis and Martin Tevasue.
However, defensive lineman Mike Devito returns to the lineup after missing two games with a knee injury. Also, returning to the lineup is running back and kick returner Joe McKnight, who missed last week with a hyperextedned elbow.

The New York Jets (8-5) visit the Philadelphia Eagles (5-8) Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Here is your television and radio information.
The New York Jets (8-5) travel to Lincoln Financial Field today (4:15 p.m. ET/CBS) to play the Philadelphia Eagles (5-8). A fourth straight victory would go a long way toward securing a playoff berth for New York.
Can the Jets get that victory?
KEYS TO THE GAME: How much will the Jets miss safety Jim Leonhard, out for the season after suffering a knee injury last Sunday? … The Eagles are pretty healthy offensively, with quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in the lineup. Can the Jets contain the Eagles big-play offense? … Can the Jets ‘Ground and Pound’ offense control the clock against a Philadelphia team that has at times struggled against the run?
KEY INJURIES: In addition to Leonhard, the Jets will be without defensive back Marquice Cole (knee).
THE LINE: The Jets have the superior record, and seemingly more to play for, but the Eagles are still a three-point favorite at home.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has made more than his fair share of brash statements over the past three seasons. Linebacker Bart Scott did not exactly follow suit this week when he said the 8-5 Jets were not a Super Bowl-caliber team "or even a playoff team" right now.
"We’re playing better football," Scott said, "but we’re not playing nearly the type of football we’re capable of."
What did Ryan think of Scott’s assessment?
“We know we have to improve as a team in all phases. And we challenged our team that way. That’s the mentality, is we’ve got to keep getting better. You can’t stay the same or anything else. We have to get better. So, that’s our mentality, that’s our mindset,” Ryan said. “Do I think we’re a playoff team? I absolutely do, but we have work to do.”
The Jets travel to Philadelphia to face the 5-8 Eagles on Sunday.
Cornerback Marquice Cole has been ruled out of Sunday's game with a hamstring injury that has caused him to miss every practice session this week, but he's the only player expected to miss the bout. Ten other Jets are listed on the injury report, but all are probable.
Week 15 Injury Report, Jets Vs. Eagles:
Out: DB Marquice Cole (knee).
Probable: DL Mike DeVito (knee), DL Marcus Dixon (hip), OL Vladimir Ducasse (knee), RB Shonn Greene (rib), OL Nick Mangold (ankle), RB Joe McKnight (elbow), OL Brandon Moore (hip), LB Calvin Pace (groin), OL Matt Slauson (knee) and DB Eric Smith (knee)
Doubtful: DE Darryl Tapp (ribs)
Probable: S Nate Allen (hamstring), CB Nnamdi Asomugha, (knee), RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring), WR Riley Cooper (groin), DT Trevor Laws (knee), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) and QB Michael Vick (ribs)
To say the least, the 2011 season has not gone according to plan for the Philadelphia Eagles. Rather than offering a potential Super Bowl glimpse, Sunday's match-up with the New York Jets simply offers the disappointing 5-8 Eagles another opportunity to try to finish the season with some semblance of dignity.
The Eagles may still mathematically be in the NFC East race, but the reality is this season will fall far short of the expectations created when Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin and others decided to join Philly this season. The Jets (8-5) are still fighting to secure a playoff berth, which has become more likely as they have won three straight games.
Let's take a quick look at the Eagles as Sunday's 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff approaches.
Philadelphia is quarterbacked by Michael Vick, who has started 10 of Philly's 13 games this season, missing the other three with injuries. Vick's combination of arm strength and running ability mean "you're never going to be comfortable," said Jets coach Rex Ryan.
Running back LeSean McCoy already has 1,172 yards rushing and another 310 receiving for the Eagles. Jremey Maclin, DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant and Brent Celek -- along with McCoy -- gives Vick a talented group to throw to.
The Eagles have struggled most of the season with first-year coordinator Juan Castillo. Asomugha has not had the expected impact after coming to Philadelphia as a much-ballyhooed free agent. The Eagles do, however, have a pair of tremendous pass rushers in Babin (15 sacks) and Trent Cole (nine).
Jackson is averaging only 6.8 yards per punt return this season, but ask the Giants how dangerous he is. Rookie field-goal kicker Chas Henery has made 19-of-22.
|Off||22.8||399.2 (4th)||250.3 (11th)||148.9 (3rd)|
|Def||22.5||334.0 (11th)||218.9 (12th)||115.1 (18th)|

The following players were not limited in practice:
The Eagles have not yet released their injury report. However, Eagles' starting quarterback Michael Vick reportedly did not practice today but did make throws during the walkthrough this morning (via Philly Sports Daily). Vick still expects to play on Sunday. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was reportedly limited in practice (via CSN Philly).
The New York Jets today signed safety Gerald Alexander to take the roster spot of starting safety Jim Leonhard, placed on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending knee injury Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Originally selected by the Lions in the second round (61st overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft, Alexander spent two seasons in Detroit, starting 17-of-21 games and recording 65 tackles, two interceptions and two sacks before being placed on injured reserve.
Since then has played for Jacksonville, Carolina and Miami. He played two games for the Dolphins earlier this year before being released.
Brodney Pool will taken Leonhard’s spot in the Jets’ starting lineup.
“Obviously, it’s a huge blow to our football team, but it’s one that we think we can overcome. We’re very fortunate as a team to have a great player like Brodney Pool as a backup safety. Now he comes in, he’s our starting safety with Eric Smith,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan. “We closed out the season last year that way. Brodney did a tremendous job as the season went on, so we’re definitely in his capable hands to fill in for Jimmy.”
