Jets sieve of a secondary

Critics figured the Jets' secondary would be bad this season after they decided not to re-sign Darrelle Revis and suffered other losses to injury and general incompetence. They have certainly lived down to expectations during their disappointing 1-6 start.

The Jets have allowed 18 touchdown passes and have just one interception -- the fewest in the NFL. Opposing quarterbacks are averaging 7.38 yards a pass attempt, or more than a yard a half than Geno Smith has managed for Rex Ryan's club. Opposing QBs have a rating of 108.3, the second-worst figure in the league next to Tampa Bay.

Of course, the Jets have faced Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in four of their six losses. Those are four of the top six rated quarterbacks in NFL history. So they figure to do a litttle better against Kyle Orton on Sunday.
