Last Sunday's 30-27 overtime victory against the AFC East-leading Patriots clearly represents the signature win of the Jets' young season.

Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos will meet for the third time on Saturday night in Houston, looking to settle the score in what promises to be the biggest heavyweight trilogy in UFC history.

Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead (RB, Chargers)
They have a great matchup... » more

The Jets signed Josh Cribbs to shore up their injury-riddled return game, according to multiple reports yesterday.
Cribbs, 30, has not played during the 2013 regular season after being released by the Raiders during the preseason, in part due to a knee injury.
