Plaxico Burress will take the post-game spotlight because he had three TDs, but the story of the Jets' victory was their defense. It didn't allow a second-half score. More than that, it produced two turnovers -- both of which produced scores, including the go-ahead touchdown.

The key for New York was stopping tight end Antonio Gates. He made big catches in the first half. He did virtually nothing in the second, But that was the story for the Bolts' offense. It had one first down in the third quarter and was three-and-out on two of its three possessions.

Gates was supposed to be the Great Equalizer for San Diego, which was coming off a bye, but if it can beat the Jets with him what does that mean? I'll tell you what: Oakland looks more and more like a legitimate threat to win the AFC West.

Another so-called expert who picked the Jets to lose. When are you guys going to learn? When ever you kick this team, they kick back.
