LeSean McCoy burned the Jets once already this season. In Week 1, the tailback ran for 110 yards on 22 carries and caught five balls for 49 yards in a 21-12 win over Gang Green. He’s been hot lately as well, totaling 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries against Tampa Bay in Week 7 and 151 rushing yards and a score on 27 carries last week. The Jets rank No. 27 in the league in rushing defense, coughing up an average of 128.2 ground yards per game. This could be another big performance for the veteran tailback at MetLife Stadium.
Robby Anderson is quietly becoming a go-to guy for Josh McCown. His six catches last week were a season high and his 104 yards were a career high. He has touchdowns in his last two games as well. The Bills have been very good in the secondary this season, with safety Micah Hyde leading the league in picks with five and cornerback Tre’Davious White playing at a Defensive Rookie of the Year level. Who will bend first in the matchup?
Michigan State’s top challengers this season look like they’ll come from a pool of teams that return at least one star, if not most of the starting lineup. Minnesota’s depth still has to prove it can take a legitimate swing at a conference title.
Over that four-game stretch, Arizona averaged 48.8 points per game, with the high-water mark, 58 points, coming against a Washington State defense that held USC to 27 on Sept. 29. The change in offensive efficiency also changed Arizona’s fortunes in the Pac-12 race. The Wildcats, projected for a second straight last-place finish in the South division, now plays USC for the division lead.
In this one, there is a big-time atmosphere, Rodriguez said. It’s against a really good football team, one of the most talented teams in the county. There’s a lot at stake.
