  Line: Jets by 21/2. The skinny: The Ravens are a hot choice to go far this year. They have bulked up their offense by bringing in receivers Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, joining versatile running back Ray Rice, dependable wideout Derrick Mason, and healthy-at-last tight end Todd Heap. Their defense always is formidable. Some observers would say the Jets are doing everything the right way, adding stars such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Santonio Holmes, and Antonio Cromartie to their lineup.

It's always good to own Mike Wallace. This week, it's even better. The Steelers' top playmaker will not be making a visit to Revis Island, the place where wide receivers and their fantasy statistics often disappear, because Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis did not make the trip to Pittsburgh. Revis sustained a head injury against the Bills last week and on Friday was left back in New York. "We followed NFL protocol and we'll always follow NFL protocol when it comes to concussions," Jets coach Rex Ryan said.

SEEING GREENE: The Eagles' defense knew it had to neutralize running back Shonn Greene, who had averaged 5 yards per carry in the Jets' last three games, including a 129-yard performance against the Chiefs. Yesterday, Greene was held to 73 yards on 18 carries for a 4.1 average. He did not score. STARTING POSITION: The Jets have been able to shorten the field with their return game this season. Joe McKnight, the league's top kick returner, has six 40-plus returns. Coming into yesterday's game, the Jets led the league in average drive start (27.1)

ACCORDING TO several Internet sites, the average high school graduate makes a little over $1 million in a lifetime. A college diploma bumps that up to $2.1 million and a master's degree adds another half-million. Chump change to Antonio Cromartie. The Jets' cornerback recently told Newsday that he plowed through $5 million during his first two seasons in the NFL. That was in 2006 and '07 after he had been drafted by the Chargers out of Florida State. "I was out of control," Cromartie said.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie faced the Eagles last season when he was with Arizona. But when he watched the game tape of this season's Eagles team, he noticed a slower offense. "With Nick Foles and those guys, it seemed like the tempo was a lot quicker," Cromartie said. "To me, I think it slowed down a little more with Sam Bradford because he's still trying to grasp the offense. Nick Foles understood the offense so it was able to move at a faster pace.

REX RYAN set the tone early in the week - with a brash boast, of course. His Jets, the coach declared, have been the best football team in New York since he came to town. And he said the facts bear that out: Two playoff trips compared to none by the Giants. But, Ryan wants a lot more. "I don't want to be the one that is not looked at as the best team in my own state," Ryan said. "There's no way. I want to be the best team, period. Now, do I have the courage to say it? Absolutely.

Looks like New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes was auditioning for the Mummers while kind-of, sort-of playing in his team's playoff dream-killing, 19-17 loss to the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday. He was strutting, but his teammates didn't dig his act. The Jets captain was yanked as his team tried to rally in the fourth quarter, and though there were conflicting stories as to who did it, everybody knew why. After the game, players told the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger that Holmes was "moping" throughout the game, and the problems came to a head when the receiver and a teammate argued in the huddle in the fourth quarter.

TENNESSEE receiver Kenny Britt injured his right knee in Sunday's win over Denver and will need season-ending surgery. "Unfortunately, he tore his ACL and his MCL so he will be out for the season," Titans coach Mike Munchak said yesterday. "He was off to a great start this year. As we all know, he's a special player. He's got a lot of work ahead of him. But he's young. We know that he'll be back next year. " The injury leaves Tennessee with four receivers, and team officials already are looking for someone to fill the spot on the roster.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Everything seems to be falling into place - again - for the New York Jets. They've got a three-game winning streak, the offense is finally clicking, and the defense is shutting down opponents. The teams they're competing with to make the postseason lost last Sunday. "It's playoff time right now," coach Rex Ryan said. "That's how we've approached it every game. " It's beginning to feel a lot like 2009, when the Jets appeared out of the mix late in the season, only to bounce back, get a couple of breaks and make it all the way to the AFC championship.

The Eagles listed Bradley Fletcher as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, but what is without question is that the cornerback will not return next season. He may not be the only starter from the Eagles' beleaguered secondary headed for an exit. Safety Nate Allen's contract will also expire in the offseason. Cornerback Cary Williams has one year left on his deal, but all of his salary for 2015 isn't guaranteed. The Eagles could opt to move on from both their outside cornerbacks as they did two offseasons ago when Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie weren't brought back.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Nick Foles is building a database. A database of mistakes that he hopes to learn from, grow from, and not repeat. Seven games into a season that still could be special or still could be heartbreaking, that database is starting to swell. Foles threw two more interceptions yesterday and had a late-comeback drive come up 16 yards short in a 24-20 loss to the Cardinals. He set a franchise record for completions (36) and recorded the third 400-yard passing game of his career.

THERE IS this old David Steinberg comedy bit in which a beaten-up and bloodied fighter returns to his corner after each round to the unbridled optimism of his trainer, who tells him repeatedly, "Keep it up, Pepe, you're doing great. " Finally, Steinberg can hear no more, leans from his ringside seat and says this: "Pepe, you are not doing great. The other man is hitting you repeatedly and you are not responding. " It is getting to that point with our own version of Pepe, Nick Foles.

When the Eagles run The running game appeared rejuvenated in the Eagles' last two games, with 145 yards against the Rams and 203 yards against the Giants. LeSean McCoy's 149-yard outburst against New York was a positive sign after the defending rushing champion struggled early in the season. But the Eagles face what might be their toughest test yet against the NFL's No. 1 rushing defense, and they might have to do it without dynamic No. 2 running back Darren Sproles. Sproles is questionable.

Texans at Jets 8:30 p.m., ESPN   Line: Texans by 8. The skinny: With New York's Darrelle Revis out for the season with a torn knee ligament, it will be Antonio Cromartie's job to cover Houston's Andre Johnson on Monday night. Johnson is 76 yards shy of 10,000 for his career. If Johnson surpasses 10,000 on Monday, he will become the sixth-fastest player in NFL history to accomplish the feat, doing it in his 127th game. The Texans (4-0) are led by former West Chester East star Matt Schaub, who has passed for 953 yards and seven touchdowns.

THE NFL'S TOP shutdown cornerback will likely be shut down for the season. Darrelle Revis has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that will require surgery, a huge blow for the New York Jets that leaves coach Rex Ryan without his best defensive player. A somber Ryan stopped short of ruling Revis out for the season on Monday, saying he just learned of the MRI results. But Revis will have to wait 2 or 3 weeks before surgery, Ryan said, and the recovery from an ACL tear is usually 6 to 9 months.
