Aside from the challenge of overcoming the loss of QB Aaron Rodgers, the Jets face another challenge this week people might not be thinking about.
They are playing a road game on a short week.
But it’s not just that.
They are traveling to Dallas, not just on a short week, but after playing an overtime game, so they played extra football.
Dallas is coming off a blowout win over the Giants, where they were able to pull some starters later in the game.
So you are talking about a team that played extra football on a short week that has to travel to face a fresh team at home, coming off a blowout win.
Not an easy chore for a Gang Green.
So it’s incumbent upon the Jets Athletic Care and Performance Department to have a strategic plan to deal with this, which they likely do.
