Rex: 'Only one guy can cover Moss'

Jets coach Rex Ryan left little doubt what the gameplan will be Sunday when his team plays the Patriots. "There’s only one guy in this league that can cover Randy Moss," he told The New York Daily News. “And that’s Darrelle Revis. Nobody else.”

 

Ryan added, "Randy Moss beats you for touchdowns. Randy Moss is a stud. Him and Chad [Ochocinco], you better double them. Well, we don’t have to. That’s what Revis brings for us.”

Ryan: Pats 'right at the top'

In his postgame press conference following a 10-9 loss to the Ravens on Monday night, Jets head coach Rex Ryan was asked if an 0-1 start puts even more pressure on his team heading into a Week 2 showdown vs. the Patriots.

 

"It’s hard to make up games, that’s for sure," Ryan said. "We all saw their game. New England looked pretty darn good. There are no easy games in this league. New England looks like they are right at the top, so we are going to have to play our best, no question."

Mashup: Mariotti faces 7 misdemeanors

Columnist Jay Mariotti is being charged with seven misdemeanors in connection with an incident involving his girlfriend last month. The writer, suspended by AOL FanHouse after his arrest, will be arraigned Friday in a Los Angeles courtroom on two counts of domestic violence with injury, two counts of domestic violence, one count of grand theft, one count of false imprisonment and one count of vandalism for allegedly taking his girlfriend’s purse. Mariotti’s lawyer, Debra Wong Yang, said Mariotti’s girlfriend was “extremely intoxicated that night and abusive toward Mr. Mariotti.” Meanwhile, Mexican television reporter Ines Sainz, who said she felt "uncomfortable" at Jets practice on Saturday, received an apology from the team's owner and was in contact with the NFL, which is looking into the situation.

Lester comes up aces in win over M's

Jon Lester allowed just three singles while punching out 12 batters in eight innings of work, earning a career-high 17th victory as the Red Sox beat the Mariners, 5-1.

 

Lester (17-8) featured a dominant arsenal on a night when he became just the fifth pitcher in Red Sox history to record back-to-back seasons of 200 or more strikeouts. The outing was the fourth straight in which the left-hander had struck out 10 or more batters, most in the majors this year. He also has a major league-leading seven games in which he's reached double digits in strikeouts in 2010.

 

The offense was led by a group of Red Sox prospects, as all five runs were driven in by players who started the year in the minors. Lars Anderson delivered his first big league RBI with a double to the gap in left-center, Daniel Nava delivered a run-scoring double of his own and Ryan Kalish gave the Sox some late breathing room by clubbing a two-run homer to right...

Lester reaches 200 strikeouts

For the second straight season, Red Sox starter Jon Lester reached the 200-strikeout threshold, achieving the milestone when he struck out Mariners catcher Adam Moore on a curveball in the bottom of the third inning. Lester's third punchout of the game was his 200th of the year, making him just the fifth pitcher in Red Sox history (and only left-hander) to reach the mark in back-to-back seasons.

 

Lester joins Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez, Cy Young and Smokey Joe Wood as the only pitchers in Sox franchise history to record the feat. Martinez struck out 200 or more batters in two separate three-year streaks (1998-2000 and 2002-04), while Clemens did it in seven straight years from 1986-1992.
