2018 Opponent Scouting Report: Jets defense http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/adam-vinatieri-jersey , Jamal Adams isn’t human. OverviewOn October 14, 2018 the Indianapolis Colts will travel to take on the New York Jets. In this week six match-up I sought to understand our opponent and get a better idea of how they may attack our new look Colts. Since 2012 the Colts are 1-2 in games against the Jets. The last coming in December of 2016 when our Colts absolutely destroyed the Jets 41-10. Andrew Luck went 22 of 28 with 278 yards, 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Colts defense also racked up three interceptions. A lot has changed in the past two years, let’s just hope that the outcome looks the same.Let’s figure out what we can expect in week six.DefenseTodd Bowles has been a coach since the mid-90’s. In his time he has used every conceivable defensive scheme and seen every conceivable offensive concept thrown his way. He has used both 4-3 and 3-4 base fronts and has ultimately chosen the 3-4 to form the identity of his defense. With that said Bowles does borrow from 4-3 principals, choosing to have his defensive linemen play one gap instead of two. I guess what I’m trying to say is that when coaches say they want a defense that is “multiple” they mean they want to have a defense like Todd Bowles. At it’s best Bowles defense is aggressive and attacking and they aren’t only going to rush four. They want to bring a blitz more often than not and that’s evidenced by the fact that they’re currently tied for sixth in the league in sacks coming into the game. They play a lot of man to man coverage which should be expected considering their desire to blitz. In third and long situations the Jets are content to rush three or four and drop the rest into coverage. Let’s get into a few of the things I noticed watching the last two weeks of Jets football:During the Broncos game I noticed early on the Jets were having a tough time maintainingtheir gap responsibilities on runs to the right. Exhibit b:Eventually the Broncos abandoned the run to try and keep pace with a Jets offense that put up 34 points. Had the Broncos continued to run the ball, moving methodically and keeping the Jets offense off the field they may have had a chance in this one. I’m not extremely well versed on all things Denver Broncos but Vance Joseph has to be close to losing his job, right? Andrew Luck is going to have to find Jamal Adams before every snap. He might lineup 15 yards deep, he might lineup as a linebacker, he might lineup at the line of scrimmage and I can’t find much that he’s bad at. Todd Bowles clearly enjoys having a weapon like Adams at his disposal, given how much he moves him around and tries to find ways for him to impact the game. The Jets will blitz a lot of DB’s and it doesn’t really matter who it is, on this play they send J.J. Wilcox which confuses the offensive line and running back and it results in a nice schemed sack. I say it doesn’t matter who they send because as of today J.J. Wilcox is no longer on an NFL roster. I’m going to pretend I don’t know who number 96 is for the Jets but he causes this sack. The thing that jumped out to me about this play is that it’s 3rd and 12 to go. Jamal Adams comes on a late blitz and the “other” safety Marcus Maye actually comes over and cleans up the play coming away with a sack. For those of you keeping score at home, on 3rd and 12 both of the Jets starting safeties were blitzing/playing very near the line of scrimmage.When I went back and watched the Jets vs Jaguars game the biggest difference that jumped out first was the quality of quarterback play. I can’t believe I’m about to type this in an un-ironic way but Blake Bortles played great. On the play above Bortles faced pressure via a DB blitz, and was able to calmly step up in the pocket and it a receiver running a shallow man coverage beating route. It helped that the Jags have a better offensive line than the Broncos so Bortles had a pocket to step into, even still he stayed calm, kept his eyes downfield and hit the open man. I hope Frank Reich and Nick Sirianni rip this play off. This is a 3rd and short play, the Jags send a man in motion and due to man coverage the two receivers routes create a natural, legal, pick that works like a charm. One thing to notice, the Jags sent a tight end out wide and Jamal Adams covered him. Using Eric Ebron as a decoy is a risky move considering he’s one of three offensive players who seem to be able to catch a pass, but by lining him up out wide it could take Jamal Adams out of the play before it even begins. This is the kind of play you run in the final minute of overtime on 4th and 4... too soon?This Jets defense is going to look to attack and Andrew Luck is going to have to play smart, take what the defense gives him http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/rigoberto-sanchez-jersey , and move well inside the pocket. Losing Matt Slauson could be huge as the big man had been solid in pass protection and helping create a consistent pocket for Andrew Luck all year. I fully expect to see Jamal Adams all over the field, hopefully the Colts have a plan to limit his impact. Defensive Line So the Indianapolis Colts have gone against some really talented defensive lines so far in 2018 and if you would like, I could lie to you and tell you that the Jets d-line is soft. So if you want to hear they’re soft, they’re soft. If that’s what you want to hear, you should stop here and skip ahead to learn more about the Jets linebackers. For everyone else, this line sports Leonard Williams, Henry Anderson and Steve McLendon. We know about Leonard Williams (a former top 10 pick) and Henry Anderson (100% Chris Ballard’s biggest mistake as GM) but most surprisingly for me was how well Steve McLendon is playing from his spot at nose tackle. McLendon is going to keep Ryan Kelly busy all day. It’s going to be strength vs. strength and losing Slauson could be huge. In addition to those three is third round rookie Nathan Shepherd (no relation). Shepherd came out of little known Fort Hayes State and had I not lived in Kansas for the past seven years I would have no idea that school existed. Unfortunately I’ve spent some time in Hayes, Kansas and outside of tumble weed and armadillo’s the only things worth seeing used to include Nathan Shepherd. If you’re from the Hoosier state and you’ve never driven through anywhere that was once considered “the West”, driving from Kansas City to Hayes would be like driving from Evansville to Terre Haute only the hills aren’t really hills and you never see another living person. It’s a trip that only takes two hours but it feels like a lifetime. Nathan Shepherd was in the middle of nowhere this time last year, now he plays in New York and the bright lights haven’t changed much, he’s playing lights out for a rookie and looks to be a building block for the Jets future. I hate to do it but Henry Anderson looks really good again:Once again our Colts will face a challenge up front. The rotation of those four players alone might be enough to shake what had looked to be a very solid right side of the offensive line that was developing for the Colts. I don’t want Anthony Castonzo to rush back and re-injure himself, but I really hope he can finally play. I’ve said it before but the team needs him more than ever. LinebackersBrandon Copeland, Darron Lee, Avery Williamson and Jordan Jenkins are the names you’ll need to know. Darron Lee is playing very well and is an absolute stud in coverage. Avery Williamson came to the Jets from the Tennessee Titans. Williamson is better against the run but he has the ability to cover if he remains disciplined. If I were going to target Lee or Williamson, I’m not testing Lee in the pass game at all. With that said both are playing very well so far this season. Jordan Jenkins does a nice job setting the edge for the Jets but he’s not much of a pass rusher. The same could be said about Brandon Copeland, except he’s not actually good at setting the edge. If I were Luck I would find where Copeland was lined up before every called run and make sure the run is going in his direction. While it’s true the Jets are tied for 6th in sacks, they don’t have a pass rusher that scares anyone. They have consistently schemed their sacks and sent defensive backs to generate pressure. With a legitimate pass rush to combine with their solid defensive line and solid inside linebackers and this Jets defense could be scary. Defensive BacksMorris Claiborne, Parry Nickerson, Darryl Roberts are most likely the corner backs you’ll need to know. As of right now it looks like the Jets will be without Trumaine Johnson and Buster Skrine, both down with injury. Without Johnson and Skrine, Claiborne will need to continue his solid play while sixth round rookie Nickerson will need to step up in a big way. Darryl Roberts isn’t great and I feel pretty good about this matchup if T.Y. Hilton can play this Sunday. The safeties Authentic Quenton Nelson Jersey , we’ve already talked about but we’ll talk about them again because they deserve it. Jamal Adams is the best safety we’ve faced this far. There doesn’t seem to be anything he can’t do on a football field and if the Colts don’t have a plan to mitigate his impact, it will be felt all day long. Normally you feel good having your tight end block a safety:Marcus Maye is playing just as well as Adams. It shouldn’t be legal to get two safeties this good in the same draft yet the Jets seem to have absolutely killed the first two rounds of the 2017 draft.What to Expect from the Colts OffenseA lot of what we can expect to see will depend on how the offensive line reacts to losing Matt Slauson. If the Colts are able to protect Luck, I feel he might have another big day in the air. I don’t see any way the ground game gets going in this one. Either way we’re going to see a lot of picks and rubs and hopefully crossing routes to beat man to man coverage. Depending on how the defense holds up against Darnold will determine how important winning the time of possession battle will be. If the Colts can control the flow of the game and keep Luck somewhat clean I feel good about the ways they can attack this Jets defense. For the last few minutes of the first quarter and all of the second, Washington's offense couldn't be stopped.Whether it was Alex Smith passing or Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson running, the Redskins simply dominated Arizona up front and the 24-6 Washington victory on Sunday was even more dominant than that score would indicate."Our O-line set the tone early," Smith said, "especially with the way we were running the football. I mean, anytime you're moving the chains like that, it's easier to get into a rhythm and I thought we did that there in the first half."Washington had consecutive touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards to lead 21-0 at halftime.The first-half statistics were grossly one-sided.Washington outgained the Cardinals 261 yards to 36 and had a 22-2 advantage in first downs. The Redskins controlled the ball for 22:57 to Arizona's 7:03."That was about how you draw it up," Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. "I don't know how many snaps we played in the first half (14 for the Redskins defense), but it wasn't a lot. Kudos to our offense for keeping us off the field."Smith, acquired from Kansas City in the offseason, finished 21 of 30 for 255 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in his Washington debut.Peterson rushed for 96 yards on 26 carries. Thompson gained 65 yards in just five attempts, and caught a 13-yard touchdown pass."I think any time you win on the road first game of the year, whenever you win on the road, you've got to say everybody played pretty darned well," coach Jay Gruden said. "Especially the quarterback and safety on defense, middle linebacker. I thought they all played extremely well."Here are some things to consider from Sunday's Redskins victory over Arizona.CHORUS OF BOOS: The Cardinals, in the debut of new coach Steve Wilks, were showered with boos from the home crowd as they left the field."We heard them booing Authentic Ryan Kelly Jersey ," Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson said. "I mean, we didn't give them nothing good to watch today."Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald agreed."They pay a lot of money," he said. "They work extremely hard to build up to buy those tickets and they expect to see good football and they didn't see that today. Next time we come back here, we owe it to them to perform a lot better and give them something to be happy about and cheer for."PETERSON'S MILESTONES: Adrian Peterson, with 96 yards rushing, moved past Marshall Faulk and Jim Brown into 10th on the NFL career yards rushing list with 12,372. He needs 368 to pass Tony Dorsett for ninth place.Peterson's 1-yard scoring run was his 100th career rushing touchdown, tying Faulk and Shaun Alexander for seventh on the career list.His performance came just two weeks after he signed with the Redskins."God has really gifted me with tremendous talent," Peterson said. "The Redskins saw that. Other teams had the opportunity, but for whatever reason, things didn't work out. They worked out the way they were supposed to. I was ready."JOHNSON'S DEAL: David Johnson was in no mood to talk about his new contract after what he considered a poor performance.Johnson signed a three-year extension Saturday night worth $39 million with $30 million guaranteed.He had a pair of good early runs but the team had to go away from the ground game after falling so far behind. Still, Johnson was very self-critical."We just couldn't get anything going," Johnson said. "I missed a couple holes and I didn't help out Sam (Bradford) with the blocking. I didn't play my best game."Johnson rushed for 37 yards on nine carries and caught five passes for 30 yards.REDSKINS 2-0? Washington took care of one issue by getting Gruden his first season-opening win as Redskins coach (in five tries).Now, the team will try to go 2-0 for the first time since 2011 when it plays its home opener against Indianapolis on Sunday."You guys kept reminding me all week about the thing, the 0-4 start," Gruden said. "Now it's time to put back-to-back games together. We have to play a tough Andrew Luck-led Colts team next week at home, and we have to do a better job for our home crowd."INJURIES: Washington lost a pair of wide receivers to ankle injuries, rookie Cam Sims and Trey Quinn. Arizona starting right tackle Andre Smith left with an elbow injury in the fourth quarter.
