The New York Jets need these guys to fend off the Baltimore Ravens
to me New York Jets To achieve a season opener win as an underdog at home 6.5 points, they would need some extraordinarily big games from a few players in particular.
Those three really need to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
OT Max Mitchell
It’s not fair that the fourth-round rookie from Louisiana faced such a huge pressure early in his career, but that’s how the cookie fell apart. With Mickey Picton’s replacement, Duane Brown, expected to miss at least four matches after being put into injured reserve, Max Mitchell Shown for the duration of the Jets’ AFC North match.
The Jets don’t need Mitchell to be “good” or even a league average junior caliber. But they desperately need him to at least be respectful. That’s all it would take Mitchell to get what I would classify as a “big game” given expectations.
An offensive line can be pulled through its weakest link. Four guys can win their fights per game, but if one player can’t win their reps, plays can still be destroyed even though the majority of the line does their job. Mitchell should avoid being that weak link.
Baltimore doesn’t provide stellar passes like Gates’ next three opponents do. What they offer is one of the most complex pressure systems in the NFL. Mitchell’s first NFL test will challenge him more mentally than physically. He must be ready for unique stunts and packs of kidnappers that will be thrown in his way.
Mitchell will also be crucial to the running game. The Jets will strive to create a powerful hasty attack that can create effective playing opportunities against the Baltimore man’s coverage. Given that the Jets are a large-scale running team and the Ravens’ running filler strength lies in the interior of their line of defense, it’s likely that the Jets will run outward more frequently. This puts pressure on interventions, including Mitchell.
All eyes on number 61.
LB CJ Mosley
As the Gates defense captain and midfield player all around, CJ Moseley He will obviously be an important player in every game that Gates plays. I think it will be especially important in this game; For several reasons.
Above all, I think Mosley’s coverage will play a huge role in the Jets’ effectiveness in stopping Baltimore’s best receiving weapon, Mark Andrews court end.
Andrews deals an incredible amount of damage on crossing roads, challenging communications and camaraderie in the midfield defense coverage area. The linebacker is in the middle of all this work. Mosley should do a good job picking up and passing Andrews as he passes through the middle of the defense.
Mosley will also be a prime running gear.
The Jets’ defensive line may have trouble blocking Baltimore’s runaways from making it to the first level, as the Ravens’ blocking scheme doesn’t match New York’s defensive play style. This will leave a lot of pressure on the back and security to clean things up at the second level.
If the midfielders could handle efficiently, the Jets could keep everything in front of them and prevent a rushing Baltimore attack from breaking the game. But if Mosley and his company struggle to tackle, the Ravens you’re already running could dominate.
Additionally, Mosley is a former Raven player who played with Lamar Jackson and is familiar with the old Baltimore lore on both sides of the ball. His experience with Baltimore is a unique advantage that no other Gates defender has.
WR Braxton Piraeus
Since the Jets are looking to create their own running game in this game, look for them to count on plenty of action before you snap. Using movement to force a sudden movement from a defense can create natural lanes for running, almost replicating the effect a linebacker would have with blocking. This is especially true against heavy teams like the Ravens.
Braxton Pirios He will be the primary movement man of the aircraft. He can influence the match even without touching the ball by just threatening that he will get the rock.
But to maximize the effect of his pre-snap move, Piraeus must be successful when he touches the ball. If Berrios can do some big plays at the ends, plane sweeps, and screens, the Ravens’ defense will react more aggressively to Berrios’ jet-setting action – opening up everything New York crime.
I also think that Berrios playing on special teams will be especially important in this match when considering the opponent.
Led by a head coach who comes from a special teams background, the Ravens consistently delivers one of the best special teams units in the NFL. There is a high chance of stealing some points and hidden yards in special teams this week. As an underdog, planes can’t allow this to happen. They must match crows to punch in special teams, which prevents them from gaining that little extra advantage.
Some of the big returns from Berrios could be a huge help in mitigating Baltimore’s special teams advantage. The Ravens have their own stellar return in Devin Duvernay, whose 13.8 yards per comeback kick last season was the only mark in the NFL better than Berrios’s 13.4 out of 37 playoffs (at least 10 returns).
Prius has the advantage in the second leg. He ranked second out of 38 playoffs (minimum 10 returns) with 30.4 yards per kickoff while DuVernay finished 13th with 24.1.
Getting a Berrios match or outperforming Duvernay in the second leg would be a big win for New York.
