1 Fast start — The Jets held the Falcons to just 83 yards of offense in the first half, conceding only a field goal, which came off a Sanchez interception. “You can start strong,” said Bryan Thomas, "but we didn’t finish that way.”

2 Top target — Gang Green’s only score came on a 65-yard bomb to Braylon Edwards at the end of the opening quarter. It was the longest pass play of the season.

3 Deserving defense — Holding the Falcons to 238 yards was no consolation for the Jets’ defense. “They shouldn’t be down there if we’re the top ranked defense,” safety Jim?Leonhard said of Atlanta’s late touchdown.
