A look at the New York Jets, who are 5-7 entering Sunday’s game at the Jaguars: *The Jets are 29th on offense (308.9) and 10th on defense (336.0). *The Jets defense is 29th against the run (137.7) and fourth against the pass (198.3). They’re 29th in sacks (19) and no player has more than 2.5 this year. *They’re 2-7 when they trail at halftime and 2-7 when they trail entering the fourth quarter. *The Jets are 1-7 when they lose the turnover ratio.
Chad Henne’s mission is clear. Forget the talk of the other team’s quarterback, and if you’re not forgetting what happened last Sunday, at least try to put it in the past. Forget basically anything that doesn’t involve the coming Sunday, and playing the New York Jets. As Henne sees it, that’s the goal: Forget Buffalo, and get back to passing and playing offense as the Jaguars were doing in the two previous weeks. Do that, and Henne – who will start a third consecutive game at quarterback for the Jaguars Sunday – said the final month of the season can be productive. And that’s absolutely the mission.
Cecil Shorts missed practice Wednesday, with his status for Sunday still uncertain. Shorts, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ leading receiver, passed his baseline concussion test Tuesday, but because he is still experiencing symptoms from a concussion sustained against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, he was held out of practice Wednesday. "He’s not clear," Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday as the Jaguars (2-10) prepared to play the New York Jets (5-7) at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m.
