Debate: No Revis = no playoffs?
There are some injuries you can adjust for. This isn't one of them. Revis erased the opposition's best receiver each week and allowed the field to become smaller for the rest of the group. The Jets defense lacks players in its front seven that can win one-on-one matchups. They have to beat you with their scheme. They have to beat you with confusion. No one in that group scares defenses.
"Maybe we play some opponents differently," Ryan said. "There are different ways to skin a cat. You can't just take away their best receiver with one guy. But we'll find a way."
The cornerbacks might have to cover longer because Ryan won't be able to take as many chances sending blitzes. First-round pick Quinton Coples was supposed to be someone that could help the team's pass rush. He played only 15 snaps on Sunday. The team only has three sacks on the season. Only two teams have fewer.
