The veteran cornerback is still mystifying the young quarterback. Revis picked off one pass, recovered two fumbles and helped the suddenly opportunistic Jets defense come up with five more turnovers Monday night to help New York pull away for a 20-7 victory at Indianapolis. "It's Monday night, on a big stage, and we knew what type of game this was going to be," Revis said. So he delivered a prime-time performance. Revis' homecoming has been everything New York fans hoped for. With Revis and Antonio Cromartie locking down outside receivers, first-year coach Todd Bowles has been able to rely on his defensive front to stop the run and routinely pressure quarterbacks. 2 P a g e

3 In the opener against Cleveland, New York converted five turnovers into 21 points. Against the supposedly, high-powered Colts offense, they did it again. The Jets matched that five-turnover total, kept the Colts out of the end zone for three full quarters and never gave Luck a chance to get comfortable. The result: New York is off to its first 2-0 start since "The name of the game is turnovers and keeping the score down, regardless of whatever else happens," Bowles said. Indianapolis (0-2) is keeping its dismal start in perspective. After starting last season with back-to-back losses, they won five straight. This time seems different. Luck was 21 of 37 for 250 yards with one touchdown, three interceptions and lost one fumble. After a strong start, Frank Gore finished with 15 carries for 57 yards and Donte Moncrief was the only receiver to top the 50-yard mark. Moncrief caught seven passes for 122 yards and Indy's only touchdown. Part of the problem was Revis and his teammates. The other problems were self-inflicted. On Monday, Indy was called for 11 penalties, Gore bobbled a handoff at the Jets 1-yard line that Revis recovered in the end zone, Adam Vinatieri missed a 29-yard field goal the first time he's missed one from shorter than 30 yards since 2007 and for the first time since 1997, the Colts were shut out in the first half in back-to-back weeks. Indy has scored just 21 points in eight quarters, and inside the stadium, the fans who roared for Robert Mathis' return and Jeff Saturday's induction into the ring of honor, booed heartily as the mistakes piled up. "You can't penalize yourself, you can't turn the ball over," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "We have to protect, give him (Luck) a clean pocket. You can't drive the length of the field and put the football on the ground." The Colts' problems began early. On Indy's first series, Calvin Pryor intercepted a pass and ran it back to the Colts 9-yard line. Four plays later, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 6-yard TD pass to Eric Decker. Fitzpatrick finished 22 of 34 for 244 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception getting his first career win at Lucas Oil Stadium. Fitzpatrick became the first player since 1950 to start five consecutive road games against one team while playing for five different teams. He was 0-4 in the previous starts. Eric Decker had eight receptions for 97 yards before leaving with a knee injury, and Brandon Marshall caught seven passes for 101 yards and one touchdown. But it was defense that ruled the day. "All we talk about is trying to dominate as a defense and we take a lot of pride in that," Pryor said. "Our main focus is to come in week in and week-out, bring the intensity, try to dominate as a defense, create turnovers, get the ball back to our offense and let them go execute. The Jets struggled to put this one away, though. New York couldn't score again until Nick Folk made a 35-yard field goal late in the first half. Indy finally got on the board with Luck's 26-yard TD pass to Moncrief with 10:07 left in the game. 3 P a g e

4 Fitzpatrick answered on the next series with a 15-yard TD pass to Marshall and Marcus Gilchrist's late interception set up Folk's final field goal. "As a secondary we're trying to be the best we can be and be the best secondary unit in the league," Revis said. "That's what we're trying to showcase out there." NOTES: Indy cornerback Vontae Davis (concussion) and tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle) left the game with injuries and did not return.... Decker is expected to have an MRI on his injured knee Tuesday.... Luck has already thrown five interceptions this season.... New York scored just 20 points off turnovers all of last season. Cromartie, Hilton will be active for Jets-Colts game Associated Press September 21, INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton and Indianapolis linebacker Robert Mathis are all active for Monday night's game. Cromartie and Hilton both sustained knee injuries in last week's season openers. Mathis, the 2013 NFL sacks champion, is trying to come back from a torn Achilles tendon that cost him the entire 2014 season. Indy (0-1) had already ruled out cornerbacks Greg Toler (neck) and Darius Butler (hip). The other inactives are linebacker Nate Irving, defensive linemen T.Y. McGill and Zach Kerr, offensive lineman Denzelle Good and linebacker Jonathan Newsome. New York (1-0) deactivated quarterback Geno Smith, receiver Devin Smith, cornerback Darrin Walls, linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin, offensive linemen Jarvis Harrison and Ben Ijalana and defensive lineman Deon Simon. NEWSDAY Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker looking like Jets' 1-2 punch (Neil Best) Newsday punch INDIANAPOLIS - The Jets' offense hardly was a thing of beauty in Monday night's defensive-oriented 20-7 victory over the Colts. But wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker did combine for 15 receptions for 198 yards. Most importantly, they scored the Jets' only touchdowns, including Marshall's game-clincher from 15 yards out in the fourth quarter. The concern after the game was a knee injury that knocked out Decker, who was to have an MRI on Tuesday. But assuming the injury is nothing serious, the Jets have a formidable one-two threat. 4 P a g e

5 Afterward Marshall joked that he would get on Decker about falling 3 yards short of 100 when both could have had 100-yard receiving days. Marshall had 101. But seriously: "That's what you want. You can go back to his days in Denver with Demaryius [Thomas] and himself. One week it was Demaryius and the other week it was him. With us, everything starts with [running back] Chris Ivory and our offensive line. "[The Colts] saw what they did last week and they tried to do some things up front, some stunts and some shifts. They gave us some funky looks and they gave us some holes to hit them." Marshall said there was no inspirational huddle or meeting on the sideline before the 80-yard TD drive on which the offense at last backed up the defense after the Jets' lead had dwindled to He did lament the sputtering nature of the attack, though. "I think collectively we feel that we left a lot of meat on the bones," he said. "We're going to enjoy it, but we also know we have to do a better job." On his touchdown reception, Marshall said he saw that he faced single coverage so he yelled to quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick before the snap to exercise his option to throw the ball Marshall's way. "I wanted to make sure he was going to throw it because he had an option so I was like, 'Hey, hey, hey!'" Marshall said. "He came to me and I made a play." Wasn't he worried about telling the defense what was coming? "It didn't matter," Marshall said. "I knew I was going to beat him. I just wanted to make sure I got the opportunity because it was tough with them doubling and rolling coverage to my side." Marshall praised the play of Colts cornerbacks Sheldon Price and Jalil Brown, who had to take charge of that position with Vontae Davis leaving the game with a concussion and other corners having sat out the game altogether. "I think they actually played pretty good," Marshall said. "Number 40 and 25 did a great job. They actually started getting up in our face and pressing us a little more. They did a great job, but it was our night." Jets' Eric Decker doesn't think his knee injury is too serious (Kimberley Martin) Newsday INDIANAPOLIS - Eric Decker assured reporters his knee injury isn't serious. At least, he doesn't think so. His presence in the visitor's locker room was a welcome sight for worried teammates, after he was forced to leave early in the fourth quarter of the Jets' 20-7 win over the Colts on Monday Night Football. "I don't think it's surgical though, so I don't think it's too serious," Decker said of his injury, which occurred after Colts cornerback Jalil Brown fell on top of him on a deep-ball incompletion thrown by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with 14:20 left in the game, After the play, Decker went to the locker room and did not return. He said team doctors "think' he injured the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. But he'll undergo an MRI on Tuesday, according to Jets coach Todd Bowles. "I landed goofy on it," Decker said of his knee. "[The defender] landed on top of me, so I hit my knee and then, obviously, the pressure as well from him landing on me." 5 P a g e

6 Decker said he didn't feel anything "pop." "I actually came to the sideline and I didn't feel anything," he said. "And then I tried to run and to just kind of hurt. I pulled myself out." Decker had a huge first half for the Jets, catching eight passes for 97 yards. But he disappeared in the third quarter before getting injured. The receiver, who dealt with a lingering hamstring injury last season that forced him to miss a game, said he'll be cautious with his latest injury. "I'm going to be smart about it this time around," he said. "I'm not going to try to rush myself back. Obviously, I want to be out there as soon as possible. But I'll take the proper steps -- whatever that is -- for this injury. "... All the tests they did, the knee held up fine. It's just they're just a little [leery] of certain tests and I guess that's why the MRI will show more of an answer." Jets get 5 takeaways, 3 by Darrelle Revis, in win over Colts (Kimberley Martin) Newsday INDIANAPOLIS -- Revis Island to the rescue. The Jets cornerback is known best for his suffocating coverage. But under the bright lights of prime time, Revis reminded the football world that there is nothing he can't do. Not once, not twice, but three times he came through against the Colts Monday night, registering two fumble recoveries and a third-quarter interception of Andrew Luck to help lead the Jets to a 20-7 road win. The Jets, who had a league-low 13 takeaways last season, have 10 in two games, a team record. Revis' three recoveries this season are a career high. The Jets are 2-0 for the first time since And their defense is a big reason why. Suddenly, the Colts' offense came alive in the fourth quarter. After struggling for much of the game, Luck marched his unit down the field, carving up the Jets' secondary. He capped an eight-play, 91-yard drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief over cornerback Antonio Cromartie. That pulled Indianapolis within 10-7 with 10:07 to go. Just like that, the Jets found themselves in a fourth-quarter fight. But Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets' defense made more plays when it counted most. With 6:27 left, Fitzpatrick connected with Brandon Marshall, who bulled his way into the end zone for a 15-yard score with two defenders draped all over him. Marcus Gilchrist thwarted another promising Colts drive when he intercepted a deep pass intended for Andre Johnson on the sideline. Nick Folk made it 20-7 with a 46-yard field goal. But it wasn't all good news for the Jets. Eric Decker, who had a monster first half (eight catches, 97 yards), left with a knee injury and did not return. 6 P a g e

7 It took the Colts almost three full quarters to settle into an offensive rhythm, but their momentum was killed by Frank Gore. With the Colts trailing 10-0, the typically dependable running back single-handedly derailed a nearly 10-minute drive by inexplicably dropping the ball shy of the goal line without having been touched. Revis grabbed for the ball as Gore tried to regain possession, and Revis fell on it inches from the end zone. Indianapolis (0-2) appeared to settle down prior to that fumble, going 4-for-4 on third down after starting 0-for-6 in the first half. But once again, the Colts missed an opportunity to score. They also blew a chance when Adam Vinatieri hit the right upright on a 29-yard field-goal attempt late in the first quarter. It was his first miss from inside the 30 since Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 34 passes for 244 yards, with one interception. Luck connected on 21 of 37 for 250 yards. Todd Bowles' defense swarmed Luck, keeping him off balance with an array of creative blitzes and pressures. Decker shredded the Colts for much of the first half. Marshall overcame double-teams to make seven catches for 101 yards, including a 42-yard catch and run. The Colts had a rushing edge in the first half, but it was the Jets who scored first. A corner blitz by Buster Skrine forced a hurried throw by Luck, and the deflected pass ended up in the hands of safety Calvin Pryor. It was the first pick of Pryor's two-season career, and he returned it 29 yards to the 9. It didn't take long for the Jets to score. The Colts opted to double-team Marshall, which left Decker open. The savvy Decker motioned into the slot and easily trotted into the end zone for a 6-yard score, making it 7-0 with 6:44 left in the first quarter. The Jets made it 10-0 in the second quarter on a 35-yard field goal from Folk. But running back Chris Ivory, the lifeblood of their offense, just couldn't get going. He and Cromartie were listed as questionable but were activated. Ivory ran for only 11 yards in the first half but totaled 57 on 14 carries. But the Colts still couldn't capitalize on the Jets' stagnant run game. The Colts lost a key player with 3:57 left in the half, when cornerback Vontae Davis headed for the locker room with a concussion. He did not return. His absence was a huge blow for the Colts, who started the game without their two best cornerbacks, Darius Butler (hip) and Gregory Toler (neck). Biggest takeaway: Jets' defense is for real (Neil Best) Newsday September 21, 2015 Somewhere in Western New York, Rex Ryan still was trying to figure out what hit him Sunday when Tom Brady and the Patriots mercilessly rained pass completions on his Bills' defense. But here in Indy Monday night, the Jets' new defensive-minded head coach was doing just fine, happily watching his unit lead the way to a 20-7 victory over the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. No one is surprised the Jets' defense is turning out to be a strength for first-year coach Todd Bowles. But no one could have expected how thoroughly they would handle a team led by Andrew Luck and eager for a victory coming off an opening- day dud against Ryan's Bills. If this keeps up, the Jets just might be a legitimate playoff team, assuming their offense can eke out enough points and avoid big mistakes. 7 P a g e

8 Not that it was easy Monday nght. With the Jets leading 10-0 and 10:07 left, Luck beat Antonio Cromartie with a touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief that covered 26 yards. But at last the Jets' offense mounted a long, effective drive to help the defense, going 80 yards for a 15- yard TD pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Brandon Marshall, who bulled his way into the end zone to make it 17-7 with 6:20 left. Marcus Gilchrist's interception with 4:35 left -- the Jets' fifth takeaway of the night, was the final blow. The Jets had 13 takeaways all of last season. They have 10 in the first two games this season. Luck and the Colts had problems dealing with Ryan's blitzes in a Week 1 loss, causing much concern in Indianapolis. Sure enough, the Jets followed their old coach's lead and used the same tactic. It was heavy pressure on a blitz by Buster Skrine that forced Luck into a bad throw that was tipped by his receiver, Andre Johnson, into the arms of safety Calvin Pryor, that set up the Jets' first score. Pryor returned the ball to the Indianapolis 9-yard line, and the Jets took advantage on a 6-yard pass from Fitzpatrick to a wide-open Eric Decker, who had his way with the Colts' secondary. It appeared the Colts would tie it up -- or at least score some points -- later in the first quarter but on a third-and-2 the Jets again blitzed Luck and he was unable to find T.Y. Hilton in the end zone, where he was closely tracked by Darrelle Revis. Adam Vinatieri then missed from 29 yards out when his kick hit the right upright, and the score remained 7-0. It appeared the Colts may have changed the momentum in their favor when Mike Adams made an acrobatic interception of Fitzpatrick in the end zone. But the Colts soon were again thwarted on a key third-down play when Cromartie broke up a pass. Cromartie played despite suffering a sprained knee in Week 1 that many initially feared might be a season-ending injury. Nick Folk's 35-yard field goal made it 10-0, then David Harris stripped Luck during a scramble and Revis scooped it up. But the Jets got nothing out of it when the offense stumbled and Folk missed a 48-yarder as time expired. The Jets should have been up by more than that, after holding the Colts to four first downs and 107 yards in the first half. The Colts were 0-for-6 on third downs in the half. That stat did not last long when the Colts took the ball on a long, nearly 10-minute march to start the second half, converting no fewer than five third downs along the way. Then, shockingly, on the Colts' sixth try at a third-down conversion, on third-and-goal from the 1, Frank Gore simply dropped the ball as he tried to run to the outside and it was recovered on the goal line by Revis. Once again, though, the offense did nothing with the takeaway. This was against a defense that, already injury riddled at cornerback, had lost their one given, Vonate Davis, to a concussion in the first half. On the Colts' next possession Revis intercepted Luck on a ball tipped by Muhammad Wilkerson. Herm Edwards on Todd Bowles' chances at success: Hello, he played the game! (Neil Best) Newsday September 21, P a g e

9 Herm Edwards and Todd Bowles could not be more different in demeanor, but they do share one trait that makes them different from most other NFL head coaches: They played to win the game -- at the NFL level. In fact Bowles, who Monday night faced the Colts in his second game at the Jets' helm, is only the second former NFL player to lead one of the two New York-area teams since Dan Reeves and Rich Kotite left after the 1996 season. The other is Edwards, the Jets' coach from 2001 through 2005 and, like Bowles, a former defensive back. Edwards, 61, who these days is an ESPN analyst, said Bowles should and likely will benefit from his background on the field in myriad ways. "You know how the players feel," Edwards said. "Whether you're in training camp, whether you're in a game, the outcome of certain situations, you've felt it. You've been there as a player. And so they get that part. Now, how can you help them win?" Striking a balance between the personas of former player and current coach is key. "Sometimes I spoke as a player, sometimes as the voice of authority," Edwards said. "And I understood the huddle. The huddle is a unique thing in football because it's diverse and when you walk in there there's a respect. "You don't have to agree with all the guys in the huddle on your political views or the music you like or any of that stuff... When you walk in that huddle you have to respect the guy to the left of you. Without him we have no success." Unlike in the NBA, where someone such as Derek Fisher can walk directly from an NBA roster into a job as head coach of the Knicks, football usually requires long apprenticeships even for accomplished players. Edwards spent 10 years in the NFL and another decade as a coach in the league before getting the Jets' top job at age 47. Bowles, 51, spent even longer as an assistant -- including three games as the Dolphins' interim head coach in after an eight-year playing career. "The players appreciate that more because you've been around other coaches," Edwards said. "You've learned from different coaching styles. And he has a head coach on his staff in Chan Gailey who you can bounce things off of. "I was in position with Tony [Dungy, in Tampa] where I was the assistant head coach and the secondary guy and I sat in with Tony on a lot of meetings as a head coach and he would tell me, 'This is why I'm doing this'... I was well aware of the seat I was about to take before I took it." Edwards knows Bowles and believes he has the knowledge and temperament for the New York fishbowl. "He'll be fine because he'll be consistent," Edwards said. "His personality is who he is. And that's what the players are looking for... I thought he handled the Geno Smith [broken jaw] deal correctly. He didn't let it fester. "The locker room didn't get into it because those are the things you have to be able to control. When players respect you, they get it. They say hey, man, let's move on, let's not make this bigger than it should be. Todd handled it pretty good. That's a lot on your plate." So far Bowles has done a deft job handling the New York-area media, even though he is not nearly as chatty as his predecessor, Rex Ryan, or Edwards. 9 P a g e

10 Edwards said he is having too much fun on TV ever to go back to coaching. He is pleased to let guys such as Bowles deal with all that. "I get to coach all 32 teams," he said, "and I never have to worry about my quarterback getting hurt anymore." Chris Ivory's year to shine for Jets (Kimberley A. Martin) Newsday September 21, INDIANAPOLIS - Chris Ivory relishes contact, and that means defenders, beware. He's a wrecking ball between blocks, a bruising back with little regard for his own body as he slashes through defenses -- or runs straight at them. The 6-foot, 222-pound Ivory is physical. Powerful. Violent. And the Jets know they're lucky to have him. "He's one of the best running backs in the business right now," receiver Brandon Marshall said in advance of Monday night's game against the Colts. "He just runs hard, he's smart, he can do it all. Not only can he pound you, but he also has speed and agility. So, you just give that guy an inch and he'll do something with it." That's why Ivory's injury status for the game stopped fantasy owners in their tracks. After being limited in practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the Jets listed Ivory as questionable, along with cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Both started. Ivory's presence on the field is a boon for the Jets -- against the Colts and beyond. Even with explosive playmakers such as Marshall and Eric Decker and the speedy rookie Devin Smith, Jets receivers readily admit that their offense flows through their bulldozing back. That could make all the difference for Todd Bowles' team in According to Ivory, his Week 1 performance against the Browns yards on 20 carries with two touchdowns -- was just an appetizer of what fans can expect to see this season. "For one, I like the scheme," Ivory said of coordinator Chan Gailey's offense. "We come in and work hard every day and we just practice as if it's a game, we take those reps as game reps. I'm just confident. If you're not confident in yourself, who else will be? You have to be, that's the only way I think you prosper and progress in this game." It was Ivory's fourth multi-touchdown performance and his first since he scored twice against the Bills on Oct. 26, With every stutter step and spin move, his dreadlocks whip around from underneath his helmet, creating a dramatic effect as he darts through traffic. Ivory isn't scared of taking hits. It's tacklers who should be worried. Cornerback Dexter McDougle learned that during practice last week, according to Marshall. "We had a play to the left and Dexter McDougle was out there and Ivory was about to get loose and he said, 'This is going to be a tough tackle,' " Marshall said, recalling the young defensive back's reaction. "We 10 P a g e

11 obviously weren't tackling each other to the ground, but that's the defender's mentality. He's a tough person to take down." Gailey, in his first year with the Jets, said it's "very satisfying" to see the way Ivory runs. "You don't see guys that are that big and strong and that fast," said Gailey, who was the Steelers' offensive coordinator when Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis was named the Comeback Player of the Year in "He can get outside with the ball in a heartbeat on you if you don't watch it. He is a big, strong runner inside and hardly ever gets knocked back. Even if we mess it up, he'll get us two yards. That's pretty good for us to be able to have that weapon." Gailey said Ivory reminds him "a little bit" of Bettis, but there's one big difference. "Jerome was a picker and slider and a strong guy. This guy's a violent runner downhill to me." Just a few years ago, Ivory, 27, was buried at the bottom of the Saints' depth chart. Now he's on a mission to crack the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the first time. He's come close, running for 833 and 821 yards in 2013 and 2014, respectively. "I think the opportunity is there," Ivory said. "It's just about me making the plays and being healthy." If the Jets are successful this season, Ivory will be a big reason why. "For us, he makes everything go," Marshall said. For Ivory, that praise is proof his hard work is paying off. "It makes me feel good," he said. "It just lets me know they're seeing the work that I'm putting in. "I don't really think I've changed too much, but I did have one of my better camps this year. Those guys are my peers and they're all around, so they see what I'm capable of and what I do every day, so that's probably why you hear that." Gladys Knight sings Todd Bowles praises (Kimberley A. Martin) Newsday September 21, INDIANAPOLIS -- Jets coach Todd Bowles scored a win even before the kickoff against the Colts Monday night -- all thanks to his favorite R&B soul singer Gladys Knight. "I'm just now seeing all the amazing #ToddBowles posts. Hi Todd! Lol," Knight posted on Twitter Monday. "We might have to take a selfie when I get to NY next Bowles has made his love of Knight known on multiple occasions, first referencing the "Midnight Train to Georgia" singer on Sept. 11, two days before he made his head-coaching debut against the Cleveland Browns. Asked about his emotions heading into his first game as the leader of the Jets, Bowles said: "Same every day pretty much. If you want to get me excited, bring Gladys Knight in here. Other than that I'm pretty good. "... Just for singing purposes," the married coach said, laughing. The day after the Jets defeated the Browns, 31-10, Bowles was asked whether he'd received congratulatory text messages. "I got quite a few. Lot of coaching buddies. A lot of buddies I went to school with and played ball with. I got a bunch of them," he said. 11 P a g e

12 Anything from Ms. Knight? "Nothing from Gladys. I wouldn't be here today," Bowles said, laughing. Now, it looks like the Jets coach will be getting more than just a text message from the "Empress of Soul." Antonio Cromartie to play against Colts (Kimberley Martin) Newsday September 21, INDIANAPOLIS -- Eight days after he was carted off the field, writhing in pain after hyperextending his left knee, Antonio Cromartie was on the Lucas Oil Stadium field warming up for a prime-time showdown with the Colts on Monday night. The Jets' veteran cornerback is active for the game, a surprising development considering Cromartie was listed as questionable after not practicing on Thursday and practicing on a limited basis Friday and Saturday because of a sprained knee. Cromartie has yet to miss a regular-season game because of injury in his 10-year career. He was held out of the Jets' final regular-season game of 2010, when former coach Rex Ryan rested his starters against the Bills with a playoff berth already clinched. Running back Chris Ivory, who was questionable for the game, is also active. Ivory was limited the last three practices because of a groin injury. The Colts (0-1) will have receiver T.Y. Hilton (knee) and linebacker Robert Mathis (Achilles) available. However, they will be without two of their two top cornerbacks, Darius Butler (hip) and Gregory Toler (neck). Jets rookie wide receiver Devin Smith will not play, despite practicing fully the past week. Other Jets inactives include Lorenzo Mauldin, Geno Smith, Darrin Walls, Deon Simon, Ben Ijalana and Jarvis Harrison. THE RECORD Jets defense causes five turnovers, beat Colts, 20-7 (J.P. Pelzman) The Record INDIANAPOLIS The Jets hold on Monday night s game was teetering. Indianapolis finally had scored a touchdown and had the momentum with just over 10 minutes left. The Jets offense needed to answer, and did. New York drove 80 yards in only seven plays, with Ryan Fitzpatrick s 15-yard scoring pass to Brandon Marshall providing the necessary cushion for an eventual 20-7 victory over the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Jets are 2-0 for the first time since I m very happy with the way that we responded after they scored that touchdown, Fitzpatrick said. His coach agreed. 12 P a g e

13 That was outstanding, said first-year man Todd Bowles. It s a good win, but it s only win No. 2. We re not where we want to be. The decisive drive included a 27-yard pass from Fitzpatrick to Quincy Enunwa, marking the first pro catch for the sixth-round draft pick in The Jets took advantage of an Indianapolis secondary that was missing three of its top four cornerbacks because of injury by that stage of the game. Star cornerback Vontae Davis exited in the first half because of a concussion. On Indianapolis next possession, an interception by Marcus Gilchrist sealed the win. It was the Jets fifth takeaway of the night, with three by Darrelle Revis. Indianapolis dropped to 0-2 for the second straight season. Indianapolis faced a second-and-18 from its 21 on its first possession. Cornerback Buster Skrine pressured Andrew Luck on a blitz, and his misdirected pass wound up in the hands of safety Calvin Pryor. He returned the interception 29 yards to the Colts 9. On third-and-goal from the 8, a defensive holding call on Davis who was defending against Marshall gave the Jets a first down. Fitzpatrick capitalized one play later by hitting a wide-open Eric Decker for a 6- yard score and a 7-0 lead. Indianapolis seemed on its way to answering quickly. Luck s 30-yard pass to Donte Moncrief put the Colts at the Jets 37, and Frank Gore then ripped off an 18-yard run to the 19. Josh Robinson s 8-yard run gave the Colts a second-and-2 situation, but they couldn t capitalize. On second down, Luck overthrew backup offensive lineman Joe Reitz, who had lined up as an extra tight end. And on third down, his pass in the end zone for T.Y. Hilton was incomplete. Revis had the coverage. The Colts got no points at all because normally reliable Adam Vinatieri was wide right on a 29-yard fieldgoal attempt. The Jets blew two of their three scoring chances in the second quarter. After another holding call on Davis gave them a first down at the Indianapolis 35, Fitzpatrick threw deep for Marshall, who was bracketed by two defenders. Davis tipped the pass and veteran safety Mike Adams, a Paterson native, grabbed the carom for an interception. On the visitors next possession, they moved 54 yards in 10 plays. The drive was capped by Nick Folk s 35- yard field goal, which gave New York a 10-0 lead with 1:51 left in the first half. The Jets had another chance to score when Luck scrambled on the Colts next possession and was separated from the football by linebacker David Harris. Revis recovered and the Jets had a first down at the Indy 44. The Jets managed one first down, but soon were stopped on third down. Folk then missed a 48-yard fieldgoal attempt wide right and the Jets settled for a 10-0 halftime lead. The Colts used the first 9:47 of the third quarter, but had nothing to show for it when Gore fumbled at the Jets 1-yard line without being hit. It was unclear if he would have been able to score, but Revis recovered the ball in the end zone. Indianapolis next possession ended with what else? a takeaway by Revis. This time, he intercepted Luck s pass on third-and-8 from the Jets 49. BRIEFS: Jets CB Antonio Cromartie started despite a sprained knee suffered on opening day against Cleveland. Cromartie had been listed as questionable. He hasn t missed a game because of injury in his 13 P a g e

NEW YORK TIMES Baffling Colts, and Maybe Fans, Jets Go to 2-0 (Ben Shpigel) New York Times INDIANAPOLIS Maybe, just maybe, this is how the Jets resurgence begins. With an array of blitz packages so creative, so destructive, they might as well have been conceived in a laboratory. Or with one of the N.F.L. s best and brainiest quarterbacks shouting at everyone and no Jet flummoxed beyond comprehension. Or with their superiority against an alleged contender, a victory that asserted the Jets and not the reeling Indianapolis Colts as a potential force in the A.F.C. By the end of the Jets 20-7 victory Monday night, fans at Lucas Oil Stadium had long departed. The Jets forced a turnover on the Colts first series and then forced quarterback Andrew Luck into committing three more, as they improved to 2-0 heading into a meeting with the winless Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. This victory was made possible by a smidgen of good fortune for the second consecutive week, their opponent ended a drive of nearly 10 minutes with a goal-line fumble and a lot of Luck (22 of 37, 250 yards, one touchdown), who threw three interceptions and lost a fumble, with Darrelle Revis accounting for three of the takeaways (two fumble recoveries and one interception). Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (12) fumbled in the second quarter, and the Jets recovered. Luck also threw three interceptions and had only one touchdown pass. Credit Brian Spurlock/USA Today Sports, via Reuters They re flying around; they re starting to buy into the system, said Coach Todd Bowles. We re not where we want to be. We re on the way. The one time the Colts did breach the end zone in the fourth quarter the Jets responded immediately, with the second touchdown in as many games for Brandon Marshall, to secure their first 2-0 start since The Jets also dealt Indianapolis only its second loss in 16 games that immediately followed a defeat. They kept pace in the A.F.C. East with New England, which battered Buffalo. It was the Bills who last week throttled Indianapolis, and the Jets noticed. Through two games, the Jets have allowed 17 points and forced 10 takeaways. Luck after the fumble. The Colts did not score until early in the fourth quarter, and the Jets responded immediately. Credit Andy Lyons/Getty Images In a matchup of bearded brainiacs, Ryan Fitzpatrick (Harvard) outshined Luck (Stanford), completing 22 of 34 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns and an interception. The Jets had flustered Luck across the Colts first eight possessions four turnovers, three punts and a missed field-goal attempt until he engineered an eight-play, 91-yard drive capped by a 26-yard touchdown toss to Donte Moncrief that sliced the deficit to 10-7 with 10 minutes 7 seconds left. 14 P a g e

15 Taking possession at their own 20, the Jets marched 80 yards in 3:47, with Fitzpatrick showing delicate touch on two critical passes a 27-yarder to Quincy Enunwa and a 15-yard touchdown to Marshall, who predicted that he or Eric Decker would shine on Monday night. Both did, just in different halves. Facing a secondary missing three of its top four cornerbacks, Fitzpatrick exploited his most favorable matchup Decker against anyone from the first play of the game. Despite Decker s prowess on the outside, the Jets love what the offensive coordinator Chan Gailey characterized as his unique feel for the slot. Sports Newsletter An insightful and occasionally amusing package of the sports journalism you need today, delivered to your inbox by New York Times reporters and editors. As Vontae Davis focused on Marshall (before leaving with a concussion), Decker devastated the Colts for eight receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown all before halftime before leaving with a knee injury. The Jets season-opening romp over Cleveland augured curiosity within their locker room: Whether their offense could operate with comparable efficiency. Whether their defense could exasperate an elite quarterback like Luck as it did a backup like Johnny Manziel. And on a macro level, whether they could compete with a team like Indianapolis, which reached the conference championship game last season. Jets running back Chris Ivory was tackled as Jerrell Freeman fell to the ground and lost his helmet. Ivory finished with 57 yards on 14 carries. Credit Darron Cummings/Associated Press At halftime, the Jets had pummeled Indianapolis so thoroughly that Luck had completed just 5 of 14 throws for 52 yards, an interception and a passer rating of 17.6, and the Colts were 0 for 6 on third down. Preparing for the Colts, the Jets abided by one principle, reinforced by their coach. To make Indianapolis s struggles a trend, Bowles told his players, the Jets had to consider them an aberration. One defeat, in rowdy Buffalo, hardly dented Luck s place among the elite, or his team s standing as A.F.C. contender. Marshall Muscles Way Into End Zone They understand that, Bowles said. They understand what they re going into. They also understood that a component of Buffalo s successful game plan against Luck blitzing, blitzing and more blitzing meshed with Bowles s defensive philosophy. On the Colts first possession, Buster Skrine broke free from the back side and forced a poor throw from Luck, which caromed off Andre Johnson s fingertips and into the hands of Calvin Pryor, whose 29-yard return gave the Jets the ball at the Indianapolis 9. Four plays later, after a Davis holding penalty on third down extended the drive, Fitzpatrick flipped a 6-yard touchdown to Decker. Across their first five quarters of the season, the Jets scored 28 points off turnovers. They scored 20 all of last year. The 7-0 advantage held deep into the second quarter, after Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri clanked a 29-yard attempt, his first miss from inside 30 yards since 2007, according to Pro Football Reference, and after an acrobatic interception from the Colts Mike Davis, on a dubious throw by Fitzpatrick into double coverage, ruined a potential scoring drive. And after a diving deflection from Antonio Cromartie, who started at cornerback eight days after appearing to sustain a serious knee injury, thwarted the Colts on a third-and- 1. Nick Folk extended the Jets lead to 10-0 on a 35-yarder with 1:51 remaining in the first half, giving his team enough points to win. 15 P a g e

16 ESPN NEW YORK Jets find a winning formula: Darrelle Revis and a killer defense (Rich Cimini) ESPN New York INDIANAPOLIS -- The New York Jets don't have a franchise quarterback. You know it, they know it, the old lady on the bus knows it. But they still believe they have enough talent around Ryan Fitzpatrick to beat the top teams, the opponents with elite quarterbacks -- and they proved it Monday night with a 20-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. When their defense dominates the way it did against Andrew Luck, the Jets can beat anybody. Their $150 million secondary locked up the Colts' receivers, frustrating Luck (21-for-37, 250 yards) for the entire game. Darrelle Revis delivered a vintage performance, intercepting a pass and recovering two fumbles. The Colts' receivers, namely T.Y. Hilton, disappeared on Revis Island. The Jets made three interceptions, with safeties Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor also contributing one apiece. The Jets (2-0) recorded five takeaways, bringing their total to 10 in two games -- only three shy of last season's pathetic total. That, folks, is astounding. "We're about to crush that," nickelback Buster Skrine said. Darrelle Revis celebrates one of his two fumble recoveries Monday. He also added an interception. The Jets now have 10 takeaways on the season -- three less than they had all of last year. Joe Robbins/Getty Images This is what the new front office had in mind when it took Woody Johnson's checkbook and bought a new secondary, bringing back Revis and Antonio Cromartie and signing Gilchrist and Skrine. Together, they choked the Colts' passing attack, making Luck wish he were someplace else, maybe filming another TV commercial. "That's why they're worth the big money," guard Willie Colon said of his teammates in the secondary. This was the Jets' biggest win since their first 2-0 start since and the tone setters were Revis and Skine. It started with Skrine, who caused the first interception by clobbering Luck on a backside blitz from his slot position. It resulted in an errant throw and a deflection, which went to Pryor, who set up the Jets' first touchdown with his interception return. After that, Revis took control of the game, making the splashy plays in addition to his usual brilliant coverage. Up in the owners' suite, Johnson must have been smiling. He doled out $39 million in fully guaranteed money to re-sign Revis, getting busted for tampering in the process, but he did it for nights like this. Revis has given an identity to the defense -- the entire team, for that matter. "He's one of the best defensive players I've ever seen," linebacker David Harris said. "He's the man." The Jets have to play this way if they hope to challenge for a playoff spot because, let's face it, the Fitzpatrick-led offense won't put up crazy numbers. On this night, Fitzpatrick & Co.managed only two touchdown drives against a defense that was missing its top three corners for much of the game. Truth be told, the Jets slept through the second and third quarters, finally showing signs of life in the fourth 16 P a g e

17 quarter. Putting aside their conservative play calling in a had-to-have-it situation, Fitzpatrick sealed the game with a touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall. There will be about a half dozen games in which the Jets will have a distinct disadvantage at the quarterback position, and that can't be dismissed in a quarterback-driven league. Such is life in the Jets' universe. The next Andrew Luck isn't walking through their door anytime soon. The Jets won't beat every elite quarterback, but if they play like they did in the first road game of the Todd Bowles era, they'll win half of them. And half of them just might be good enough to sneak into the playoffs. Basically, they will try to defy conventional wisdom, riding their talented defense. We know what they have up front; now the entire nation has seen what they have in the secondary. "That's a mean group back there," nose tackle Damon Harrison said. "You have Revis on one side and Cromartie on the other side. It's tough. Pick your poison. And you have Buster in the slot. It would be tough for any quarterback, not just Luck." There you have it, the Jets' formula. If they can't have a franchise quarterback, they can try to make it miserable for the teams that do. Like old times, Darrelle Revis dominates with big plays against Colts (Rich Cimini) ESPN New York INDIANAPOLIS -- Maybe tampering does pay. The New York Jets got busted and paid a $100,000 fine for tampering with Darrelle Revis as a free agent, but it was money well spent -- that, and his five-year, $70 million contract. Revis, reminding Jets fans of the Revis from 2009 to 2011, delivered a dominating performance Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Revis made a clutch interception and recovered two fumbles, his second and third of the season, to lead an impressive defensive effort by the Jets, which neutralized Andrew Luck & Co. Revis galvanized a rebuilt secondary, making T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief disappear on Revis Island. He had plenty of help from fellow corners Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, two pricey offseason additions. But make no mistake, Revis' presence has changed the dynamic of the Jets' defense. His ability to shut down his man with no safety help gives coach Todd Bowles flexibility with his blitz packages, and you saw what happened. After three quarters, the Jets led 10-0, threatening to pitch their first shutout since the final game of the 2009 season. Rookie WR Devin Smith inactive for Jets -- again (Rich Cimini) ESPN New York September 21, INDIANAPOLIS -- Devin Smith's NFL debut will have to wait at least another week. 17 P a g e
