Jets’ secondary and Rex Ryan knows that Browns’ WR, Josh Gordon is a dangerous Wideout and is arguably the best WR in theNFL right now when it comes to stats.

Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that the defense has to do a better job in tackling, especially dealing with Gordon.

“Certainly you would like to challenge him at the line of scrimmage but we have to do an unbelievable job in tackling and swarming him.” Rex said.

Rex also compared Josh Gordon to a young Andre Johnson. Says that his run after the catch is tremendous.

Josh Gordon leads the league in multiple categories. He leads the league in yards at 1,467. Rex said the team has had trouble with allowing yardage after a catch and may be in a big of a slump with Josh Gordon leading the league in yards after a reception at 8.3.

CB Antonio Cromartie said that Gordon is a challenge and Cromartie will most likely be guarding him on sunday.

“He’s a challenge just from the way they use him.” Cro said. “He’s a big-body guy that has a lot of speed, once he breaks a tackle, he has a chance to take it to the house.”

TE Jordan Cameron will not play (concussion) so expect Gordon to get the ball thrown to him multiple times which is why the Jets CBs need to shut him down if they expect to win their final home game of the season.
