And with a new offense that doesn't seem to play to Taylor's strengths, many think the team is just setting him up to fail. He's one of the best backs in the National Football League, " said defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, adding McCoy has plenty left even after eight seasons.
The first time coach Todd Bowles' defense played McCoy (Nov. 12, 2015), McCoy gashed them for 119 yards on 19 carries (5.9 average), and he caught another five passes for 47 yards in a 22-17 victory. Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Nick Mangold and Darrelle Revis were all released.
An ex-Patriot, Kony Ealy, is hoping to provide another confidence boost to the defensive front after his cousin, Sheldon Richardson, was traded to Seattle last week. The Jets need a presence at tight end until Austin Seferian-Jenkins gets back from his two-week suspension. That's a useful skill set to have in a game where your quarterback's returning from a head injury.

After a back-and-forth first three quarters, the Bills and Jets enter the final period knotted at 23.
Matt Forte returns and he gave the Bills a tough time a year ago. With rookie Nathan Peterman coming off a strong preseason and a stacked 2018 quarterback class expected in the draft, Taylor is likely facing his last chance to prove himself - with the odds stacked against him.
Darryl SLATER, staff writer The Jets are eight-point underdogs in this game, which tells you just how bad they are, because it's not like the Bills are going to do much of anything this season. Don't be stunned if McCown doesn't finish this game.
That even the possibility of being in first place a week into the season meaning something to the Jets shows how downtrodden they've been.
