The New York Jets have lost seven straight games, inspiring coach Rex Ryan to name Michael Vick the Jets’ starting quarterback for today’s Kansas City Chiefs game. The move puts a lot of pressure on Vick. First, he’s starting his first Jets game against one of the NFL’s top defenses. And second, he’ll be facing his former Philly coach, Andy Reid. Watch NY Jets vs Kansas City Chiefs online live free streaming or on CBS to see how it all pans out.
Vick started the second half last week after Geno Smith was benched. Though he threw an interception in the Jets’ 43-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Vick did complete 18 of 36 passes for 153 yards and ran for another 69 yards. Even those modest numbers could be tough to reproduce as we watch NY Jets vs Kansas City Chiefs online live free streaming today.
The Kansas City Chiefs defense is allowing just 308 total yards per game, third in the league, including just 195.7 passing. That latter figure is tops in the NFL. Last week the Chiefs had seven sacks against the Rams, and Chiefs safety Eric Berry is expected to play in today’s Eagles game for the first time since Week 2.
Where the Jets and Chiefs are even is the ground. While NY has the fourth-ranked rushing game behind Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson, the Chiefs have the third-ranked ground attack with running backs Knile Davis and Jamaal Charles.
Last week against the Rams, Charles rushed for 67 yards and two TDs while Davis had 49 yards and returned a kickoff 99 yards for a score. The Jets are stout against the run, but with QB Alex Smith clicking as well, the KC offense could be too much for NY to overcome, especially if Vick struggles early.
