Jets Crush Jaguars 32-3 To Go 2-0

The Jets moved to 2-0 in the still young 2011 season with a 32-3 demolition of the Jacksonville Jaguars today in the Meadowlands. The Jets remain in a three way tie with Buffalo and New England for the AFC East lead.

It was over when:

Mark Sanchez squeezed a throw through the arms of Paul Posluszny to Dustin Keller for an 11 yard touchdown pass with 3:50 left in the third quarter. It put the Jets ahead 22-3. The way Jacksonville was moving the ball, the Jaguars had little chance.

Turning Point:

Santonio Holmes shook himself free on a triple move and made a leaping catch on a Sanchez pass in the end zone to give the Jets a touchdown on their opening drive and their first in the opening quarter in almost a calendar year.

Three Stars:

1. Antonio Cromartie: Recovered from a rough opener when he was burned for two touchdowns by picking off a pair of Luke McCown passes and registering an average of over 40 yards on kickoff returns.

2. Dustin Keller: Keller is off to a hot start for the second consecutive year. He was a matchup problem all day, finishing with 6 catches for 101 yards and a touchdown.

3. Muhammad Wilkerson: The rookie registered his first career sack in this one. It went for a safety in the first quarter. That gives Wilkerson more sacks in two games than Vernon Gholston registered in three years with the Jets.

Next Up:

The Jets travel to Oakland for the Raiders’ home opener. Oakland is coming off a crushing last second loss to the Bills. The Raiders sit at 1-1.
