NY JETS: After a disastrous year in Tony Sparano's 'ground and pound' offense, the Jets have turned to new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, more of a finesse guy and closer to former OC Brian Schottenheimer. They'll use more zone blocking, and power runner Chris Ivory will probably take the bulk of the carries. Mike Goodson, who has flashed in a part-time role, fits nicely into this scheme. So does back-up Bilal Powell, though he could end up on the outside looking in. Joe McKnight will likely continue to be a utility player. Mornhinweg is a West Coast guy. His biggest challenge will be finding some kind of rhythm for his quarterback, whether it is Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez. If nothing else, they both have the feet to run this offense. But the Jets lack any sort of true catch-and-run threat. Santonio Holmes is the best in a weak group of receivers. Stephen Hill is strictly a field-stretcher at this point, as is TE Jeff Cumberland. Jeremy Kerley will likely be leaned on more heavily, and Mike Goodson should be involved in the screen game. Mornhinweg has always skewed pass-heavy near the goal line, using a lot of play-action and rollouts. Ivory should take all red zone and goal line reps. But the Jets might be quick to abandon the run down here. The Jets have given up an increased amount of points and yards in each of the past three seasons, and their No. 2-rated pass defense lost CB Darrelle Revis, S Yeremiah Bell and S LaRon Landry. Star CB Antonio Cromartie remains for new defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman, and rookie CB Dee Milliner and SS Dawan Landry will help too. In terms of the front seven, head coach Rex Ryan will help oversee a defense that should be much more aggressive with its blitz packages with monstrous second-year OLB Quinton Coples.
ATLANTA: Atlanta finally transitioned to a pass-first offense in offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's first year, though with new No. 1 back Steven Jackson replacing over-the-hill Michael Turner, they at least have the threat of a running game now. Koetter brought in more zone looks, and they should continue to move away from the man blocking of past regimes. Jackson can play three downs, but they may be careful with his workload to keep him fresh for the playoffs. They trust No. 2 back Jacquizz Rodgers in the passing game and on some runs out of spread looks, and they'll rotate Jason Snelling in as well. The biggest addition Koetter made to the passing game was more bubble screens, which proved to be one of their best weapons. They use a lot of motion to create mismatches and effectively use bunch formations for added confusion. Roddy White remains Matt Ryan's favorite target, while Julio Jones is frequently used either downfield, or on those bubble screens. Ryan's second look is usually for TE Tony Gonzalez up the seam. Atlanta gets more balanced in the red zone, and that should hold true with Jackson replacing Turner as the red zone and goal line back. The Falcons are hoping disgruntled DE Osi Umenyiora seriously helps a pass rush that totaled nine sacks in the second half of the year. Atlanta ranked 24th in yards allowed last season (366 YPG), but forced 31 turnovers (T-4th in NFL), including a dozen in the final five games. Atlanta departed with veteran DE John Abraham and CBs Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson, but the secondary is still loaded with FS Thomas DeCoud (6 INT), CB Asante Samuel (5 INT) and rookie CB Desmond Trufant. The front seven has questions, but both top tacklers, LBs Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas, are now healthy.

*Jets-Falcons Preview* ======================


While the Atlanta Falcons caught their fair share of breaks last season, they haven't been nearly as fortunate this time around.

A visit from the New York Jets and their struggling rookie quarterback could be just what they need to regroup.

Hoping to avoid losing three straight for the first time during the Matt Ryan era, the Falcons try to add to Geno Smith's woes Monday night.

Atlanta (1-3) opened a franchise-best 8-0 in 2012 before finishing 13-3, with seven of those wins coming by seven points or less. The Falcons, though, haven't really seen things go their way in their first four games, which have been decided by a combined 24 points.

"You just don't panic," said wideout Roddy White, who continues to play through an ankle injury. "You are what you earn in this league, so we're 1-3. You just go out there and correct the problems that you have and get ready for the next game. We know at 1-3 that we can't get back to .500 after one game."

After giving up the go-ahead touchdown with 38 seconds left in a 27-23 loss at Miami in Week 3, Atlanta fell 30-23 to undefeated New England last Sunday night. Ryan completed 34 of 54 passes for a career-high 421 yards and two touchdowns, but the Falcons' potential game-tying drive was stopped on the Patriots' 10-yard line in the final minute.

They haven't lost three in a row since a six-game skid in 2007.

"Obviously, we're not where we want to be," said Ryan, who dropped to 34-6 at home. "We've got to claw ourselves back to where we want to be. It's a long haul. There's still a long way to go."

Atlanta's troubles can largely be attributed to its inability to convert in the red zone. The Falcons, who failed to score a touchdown on five of six possessions inside New England's 20, rank 29th in the league in red-zone production at 38.9 percent.

"It's killing us right now," White said. "It's something that we continue to work at, but we've got to do a little more and win some one-on-one battles, especially when it's time for one person to make the play when it's presented."

The defense has also struggled, giving up 26.0 points per game to rank 22nd in the NFL, a big step back from last season's mark of 18.7. Atlanta has also recorded just seven sacks.

The Falcons, though, would appear to have a favorable matchup against Smith, who is tied for the league lead with 11 turnovers after throwing eight interceptions and losing three fumbles.

Four of those turnovers came last Sunday in a 38-13 rout at Tennessee. Smith threw for 289 yards and a score but was sacked five times, bringing his season total to 14.

"It's just taking ownership to your mistakes and manning up," he said. "A lot falls on my shoulders as far as taking care of the ball, but that's something I have to do.

"No one wants to make those mistakes. It's something that has to stop now in order for us to progress and to get better as an offense and as a team."

The Jets (2-2) are on the verge of opening 0-3 on the road for the second time in three seasons, and while Atlanta hasn't been playing up to par, they know they have a difficult task in store.

Julio Jones leads the league with 481 receiving yards and Tony Gonzalez is coming off his best game of the year, hauling in 12 receptions for 149 yards and two scores last week.

"They're big, fast. It's definitely going to be a huge challenge for us," coach Rex Ryan said. "Playing on a Monday night with their crowd, we know it's going to be a very hostile environment."

Giving up only 79.3 rushing yards per game, New York will face an Atlanta team which continues to play without injured All-Pro running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) and has run the ball 31 times for just 94 yards in splitting its first two home games.

New York has some injury concerns of its own with starting receivers Santonio Holmes (hamstring) and Stephen Hill (concussion) banged up. If they can't go, David Nelson could be thrown into the fire after signing Wednesday.

Running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) is also uncertain to be available, but Mike Goodson is set to debut after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
