After one quarter New York Jets not afriad of Houston Texans
This weeks NFL Monday night match up is the Houston Texans against the New York Jets. Coming into the game there was rampant speculation that the Jets would be greatly over matched by the Texans. Houston enters the game a perfect 4-0 and has looked strong in each of their victories. The Jets are coming off an embarrassing loss to the San Fransisco 49ers where they were blown out by a score of 34-0. The Jets looked terrible and were not able to put up any points against the stout 49ers defense.
Things looked as many expected as the Texans were able to march down the field on their opening drive. The drive lasted 8 plays for 85 yards and was capped off by a pass from quarterback Matt Schaub to tight end Owen Daniels for 34 yards. This was followed by the Jets first possession that only produced three plays for eight yards before they were forced to punt.
However, after another exchange of punts, the Jets team woke up and started to compete. Schaub was picked off by Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and started to move the momentum in the Jets favor. After the interception the Jets put together a 4 play 57 yard drive that ended in a touchdown pass from Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez to tight end Jeff Cumberland for 27 yards.
It is still early in the game and the first quarter ended with the score tied at 7 but the Jets are showing they will not go down easy. Many expected an absolute domination by the Texans but I do not see that happening tonight.
