Greetings from MetLife Stadium for today's tilt betwen the Jets and Jaguars, which, by the way, is one of four games this week featuring two undefeated teams.

Good news Jets fans: Santonio Holmes and David Harris are both active. Holmes had been battling quad and knee injuries, but a source told me earlier this morning that he'd give it a go. 

Harris, who missed most of practice this past week nursing a toe injury, is also going to play, which should help the Jets' front seven in trying to contain Maurice Jones-Drew.

The rest of the Jets' inactives: Kenrick Ellis, Robert Turner, Caleb Schlauderaff, Bilal Powell, Logan Payne, Emanuel Cook and Kevin O'Connell.

As for the Jaguars, it never really seemed all week leading up to today as if tight end Marcedes Lewis was going to play, and he's not. He's inactive. So, too, is Jason Hill, the wide receiver who said he thought Darrelle Revis was overhyped. 

Enter your own punch line here.

The others for Jacksonville who won't play: Rod Issac, Derek Cox, John Estes, Aaron Kampman and Nate Collins. 

Enjoy the game -- and the early start for once.
