Two-Minute Drill

BIG SHOWS

1. Julian Edelman - A spirited rookie debut with 8 receptions for 98 yards.

2. Ty Warren - Why the guy is taken out on third downs and the immortal Mike Wright stays on the field, I'll never know. Finished with six solos and a sack, all while subbing out on third downs.

3. Vince Wilfork - Six solos. The Jets had scads of trouble trying to block him and used two and sometimes three men to do it.

NO SHOWS

1. Dan Koppen - The only thing that slowed Kris Jenkins down yesterday was fatigue. Koppen got manhandled, especially in the second half. When the interior running game evaporated so did Tom Brady's time to throw. Koppen is the poster child for a miserable week by the offensive line.

2. Joey Galloway - You just get the feeling that winning means a lot more to Tom Brady, Kevin Faulk, Randy Moss and others than it does to Galloway.

3. Ben Watson - Reverted back to his usual form with a decent linebacker on him one-on-one all day. Had three catches for 23 yards and a huge second-half holding penalty.

4. Randy Moss - Sorry, have to go four-deep this week and make an exception. Moss was well-covered by one man, Darrelle Revis. True, that at times the Jets showed Tom Brady different looks, but it was straight man coverage all day, and Moss finished with four catches for 24 yards.

HOT READS

Turning Point

Jets QB Mark Sanchez opened the second half with a 45-yard bomb to Jerricho Cotchery. To that point, the rookie had looked nervous, confused and tentative.

The completion came after he completed 3 of 5 passes for 15 yards in the first half and it absolutely settled down the USC product. Sanchez finished the game at 14 of 22 for 163 yards and a TD, nearly doubling Tom Brady's passer efficiency rating (101.1-53.1).
