QUOTABLE

"He’s probably the best running back in the NFL right now. But we do what we do, play our style of defense. If he doesn’t start his feet, he can’t run the ball. That’s kind of how we got to game plan this - just set violent edges, knock people back and don’t give him a chance to start running."

- defensive end John Franklin-Myers on containing Derrick Henry

INTANGIBLES

Jamison Crowder should make his season debut, which would give the Jets' struggling offense a lift. The reliable slot receiver knows how to get open and is a quarterback’s security blanket. Zach Wilson could use one. Corey Davis may face fewer double teams with Crowder playing.

FANTASY PLAY

Titans defense: The Jets have scored just 20 points through the first three games of the season. You’d have to go back to 1976 for the last time that happened. The Titans’ defense isn’t on the same level as the Jets’ previous three opponents, but they’ve been able to pressure opposing QBs (seven sacks), which doesn’t bode well for the Jets’ problematic line. —NICK KLOPSIS

NUMBER, PLEASE

46-3: The Jets have been outscored by 43 points in the opening half this season. They’re the only team not to score a first-half touchdown this season and the only one to not have a lead in any game.
