Lowery Instincts Drive Final Nail into Favre Coffin

Posted by Eric Allen on October 12, 2010 – 2:29 am

Last year the New York Jets might have lost a game like Monday night/Tuesday morning’s heavyweight collision with the Minnesota Vikings at the Meadowlands. But the Green & White are a maturing team with mighty mettle and Dwight Lowery’s 26-yard game-clinching scoring return of a Brett Favre interception was proof.

“Ideally in that situation it’s better to get down. But the way I got the interception was on the run and I just instinctively went to the end zone,” Lowery said after the Jets captured a heart-stopping 29-20 victory at New Meadowlands Stadium. “One thing we wanted to emphasize this year was us making plays and us making big plays. We felt like last year the difference between our pass defense and the Super Bowl-winning championship defense, the Saints, was they made bigger plays than we did.”

Last February the Saints shut the door on the Colts’ championship hopes when CB Tracy Porter picked off a Peyton Manning pass and headed 74 yards to paydirt. On this early morning, it was Lowery who blocked another future Hall of Famer — Favre — from leading the Vikings to an improbable comeback.

“They had a tendency when they got into a certain formation, a route combination that they ran out of that formation. I saw [Visanthe] Shiancoe break out and I just went on an instinct,” said Lowery, the third-year player from San Jose State. “When the pressure got there, I felt like that made Brett hold the ball a little bit longer than he wanted to and he threw the ball kind of late and I just stepped in front of it.”

Favre’s three second-half TDs had brought the visitors to within 22-20 and they needed only a field goal when they took over at their 23 with 1:30 to play. But Favre threw incomplete to Randy Moss (who was again draped by Antonio Cromartie), followed with a bad overthrow to a wide open Percy Harvin and then was intercepted by Lowery on third-and-5.

“That’s what you get from film study is really paying attention to what teams like to do, what they go to in certain situations and just kind of put that in the back of your head,” Lowery said. “So when that situation comes up in the game, you can take advantage of that situation because it’s so hard to make a play in this league. The quarterbacks are so good, the receivers are so good.”

Staying true to who they are, the Jets brought heat to Favre on the game’s critical play. And after staying interception-free for 58 minutes, No. 4 threw his seventh INT of the season.

“Basically we were playing a Cover-1,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “We wanted to get some pressure on him — most teams play coverage in that situation. We wanted to change up our looks and bring different pressure on Favre and try to get the ball out of his hand quickly. D-Lo did a great job of breaking on it and taking it to the house.”

The Jets won nine games in 2009, but the defense yielded late scores in losses to Miami, Jacksonville and Atlanta. This is a different team, a group confident that they’ll make the play in the end instead of hopeful that it will happen.

“We felt confident we would win the game. We just never knew how,” Ryan said. “That’s basically how it went.”

When Lowery was a rookie, he actually spoke to Favre about his feelings during critical junctures.

“I asked him if he ever gets nervous and he said, ‘Absolutely.’ But he just takes it one play at a time and I kind of took that from him as a defensive player,” Lowery said. “You have to take it one play at a time and stay composed in that situation.”

After picking Brett Favre’s brain in 2008, Dwight Lowery picked his pocket Tuesday. This might prove to be a steal that Jets Nation will remember for years to come.

    great play, glad it happened, but he should have taken the knee…. scoring the td was sort of a bone head play. Take the knee and the game ends. TD, makes it an 8 point game, we need to still kick the extra point, and get back on defense….. take the knee next time.

    WOW…Dwight Lowery, a big goat from last year comes up a saves the Jets from what would have been a huge critism week had the Jets lost that game. Way to go Lowery. Cro did a great job on Moss, and Moss gave both Revis and Cro due respect in his interview. Love him or hate him Moss can play.

    This is exactly the type of game we lose in the past, great team vicotry, everyone played well enough to win. If 2 of those FG drives end in TDs instead this game wouldn’t have been close. Braylon played well again, Sanchez led the team, LT is priceless, Greene continued his progress, Pace was ready to play (that was nice to see). Revis with the open field tackle on AP, Brad Smith (as always) comes up big.

    First of all great play by Lowery to seal the win but Cole set up that play with his pressure on Favre. Great game by Folk [sorry Jay, Feely who?] but it never should’ve come to that. They should’ve had at least a 13-0 lead at half and should’ve had 7 after Mizzou’s return. While Sanchez had i guess about 5-7 passes dropped he was also not sharp until the last few drives when it really counted. That showed me a lot from him and he took another step towards becoming a top QB. Pace came back strong and Revis never should’ve played. You could see he was a step off and with the field wet i would’ve sat him if possible. Bottom line GOOD TEAMS find ways to win and they did.
    GO JETS!!!!!

    Like i wrote yeesterday Schotty took the same approach of attacking this Vikes’ D with throwing the ball early. Sanchez threw 29 passes in the first half very similar to that 06 Chad game in Minny. Its real tough to rush for 155 yds against this team and throwing early opened it up so they could but he should’ve stuck to the ground more as the game went on. Leonhard should’ve never been lined up against Harvin one on one that led to a Harvin TD catch. Clearly Drew’s injury effected the Jets secondary in the 2nd half.
    Lowery did his homework. His pick ooked very much like the same play that C. Webster picked off in that Giants/Packers title game.

    I’m not one to complain about my coaches but I see a pattern with Shotty. He gives up on the run too much if on first down they run for no gain, he will always go to a pass on 2nd down. Am I wrong? He should trust their strenth and pound it out. If it was not for some nice long runs they would not have had 150yards+
    He should stick to the running game at the end of games and hopefully pass on third and short instead od 2nd and long.

    good win…but it made Jets fans very very nervous….

    have to convert FG’s into TD’s….

    Revis …whats wrong bro? ..you look so slow out there…if the hammy’s bothering you then just sit out until you are 100%…this team has shown that it can win…Don’t hurt the team…..

    go jets !

    Nice game Antonio Cro, Santonio Holmes and Brick…Need to get in endzone more but overall a complete domination until some Favre magic got them back in it. Revis is not up to speed yet, but it was good to get this one out of the way. Wilson played better. Pool is a little late on blitzes and early on pass break up hits. Him and Leonard need to play a little better or smarter as the case may be.
    Sanchez played great and still no turnovers…nice. I couldn’t believe some people thought L.T. was done. I new this was a steal the moment we got him but this is ridiculous…awesome. Greene is starting to run over people again…monster. Edwards and Holmes are very dangerous. Love the way Brad Smith glides in space waiting for a gap. J-E-T-S…

    Great play by Lowery…had it read all the way and so beautiful the way he just jumped on it. Guess you can all say typical Favre int at the end…costly as usual. with all his records, i wonder what is his record in giving up game ending int’s. Probably leads in that category too. HEY…word out…has anyone seen Bart Scott…man he has been quiet the last 4 games…is he alright…haven’t seen him on any big plays….or hardly any plays. The real mad-backer is Harris…playing lights out. Bart…Bart…are you there..????

    weatherford, offensive line, cromartie. the three reasons the jets won game.that being said Leonard is becoming a real liability in secondary. Lack of speed and size is killing this guy.Again rex continues to blitz the defense when they should be playing safe.where was the safety help on first touchdown to Moss.too much praise was heaped on the safeties during preseason but these guys are terrible.Rex might have to admit the strength of this team might be the offense.All this blitzing is disguising the jets lack of pass rush. Gholston, I believe will never get a sack. he had favre lined up and missed.

    Certainly a win that would have eluded them last year. This is a game great teams pull out when they are not playing their best. Good job.
    Good News:
    Folk was oustanding
    LT, Greene and the O-Line where tremendous
    Sanchez no turnovers
    Cromartie
    Bad News:
    Sanchez throwing 44 times…are you kidding me? The run game was working.
    Not finishing drives…Sanchez missing wide open recievers and the receivers dropping passes?????
    Revis…should play for free this year he was awful. Hurting or not he is out of shape they should get him a personal trainer.
    Rex…how many times are you going to get burned on third and forever. Stop blitzing every single play for godsakes especially in a tight game like this. Keep the other team guessing.

Never believed that for a moment…I have always been a Lowery guy…..As for the personal situation with Favre, as an organization, the Jets have not handled having pretty women around well lately.Maybe because it’s so new to them(cheerleaders)…Lets concern ourselve with the log in our own eye before pointing out the beam in our brother’s eye…..

    For our Sakes ,I sure hope Drew Coleman can go next week,Revis looked like he wa no where near ready and will probably sit this week again ,with that said were playing the top passing attack in NFL in Denver , not really the game you want to have your secondary not at full strength, so I believe in order to win this next game,the O going to have to carry us like at Miami,we’ve historically struggled at Denver,but we should be able to go in there a run all over them control the clock ,keep there O off the field ..If we can get to 5-1 at the bye ,we should be in good shape for the stretch run..

    This game wasn’t even close on the field but only on the scoreboard . they were shut out until the 3 minute mark of the 3rdqtr.Revis is still hurt and should not have played that is why Harvin was open .5 FG should of had a few TD’s there. play calls suspect.

    Great game, great win, but Revis did not look good, he looks heavy, slow and uninspired. I love the guy but that’s how it looked. If he’s hurt then sit down and get better you won’t help the team if you can’t run full speed.

    It was a fun game to watch especially with the outcome. There is a difference this year, not the Same Old Jets anymore. Now let’s kick sdome Denver butt go into the bye 5-1 and rest up for the second half.

    During pre season I read many criticisms of the Folk acquisition & predictions of how bad Nick would be. Funny, I haven’t seen any of those lately.
    Great game! I loved the play calling in the 1st half but not the second half. The last scoring drive only took 2:36, leaving Favre & Co more than 4 minutes to drive & score. We should have done some serious pounding on the ground.
    Then before the 2 minute warning, when a 1st down would have sealed the game, we throw 2 incomplete passes & stopped the clock. Running plays would have kept the clock running, & most likely gotten the 1st down.
    The important thing is we won. Now let’s go get the Broncos.

    I agree, it was just this kind of win that the Jets usually lost in years past. Give the game ball to Lowery, because in my opinion if he don’t make that play the Jets lose that game. I will say it one more time in case no one was listening before, Sanchez has no clue at all on throwing down field! I know there will be those coming out to defend him, but as they say, the proof is in the pudding, all you have to do is watch. Whether or not that will come in time, I do not know, but right now he is probably at the bottom of the list for QBs throwing the deep accurate pass, just not there. Factor in all of those dropped passes and all of the off target short to intermediate passes, and you have a game that should have never been this close.

  34. By scjoe on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    Give Favre and the Minn coaching staff a little credit as well, they adjusted to what the Jets were doing after the first half. They moved the ball, and tightened up on the run. The Jets on the other hand stayed with what they were doing and it almost cost them the game. Randy, was there an official count on the dropped passes? It seemed like at least a half dozen to me, and by almost everyone. Bottom line though, the Jets win the type of game they have lost there share of over the years, that is the most encouraging thing I took out of that game. Next up Denver, don’t take Denver’s passing game lightly Rex. It may come back to bite you.

  35. By Randy Lange on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    scjoe, nothing official on dropped passes. Rex in today’s news conference characterized it as “I thought we dropped some passes that hurt us.”

  36. By longsufferingjetfan on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    I thought my suffering days were over, but during this game I was having many flashbacks of games and years gone by and how the Jets would blow games like this late. I was on the edge of my seat the whole game, squirming and stressing and thought for sure they would loose. Yet I never gave up hope and all my past programming from watching the Jets was laid to rest as they pulled it out. That was a huge drive late for the O to score the TD and keep the lead just out of reach. I was praying for a pick six late in the game and Lowery ansered my prayres. That was huge! I am no longer a skeptic and look forward to changing my name soon.

    It was hard to watch this game and NOT think we were going to blow it in the end. As has been the case so many times over the many years, we weren’t taking advantage of so many opportunities and letting Minnesota stay in the game. Clearly this is NOT the SOJ….. Like has been mentioned many times already, we are settling for too many field goals. I love LT but lets not wear him out by week 8!! We should be using Shonn more when it is grind it out time. He shows when he gets the carries that he is just a wear on the defense and will eventually break one.

  38. By Christopher on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    It’s been said already, and I’ve been saying it all along, the safeties are not playing good enough in pass coverage. Easily the weakest link in this team. Leonard is good in the run game and blitz packages, but a liability in pass coverage and I don’t even know where Pool is.

    Kevin mentioned it too…where is Bart Scott?? He had 1 tackle, 2 assits, and a fumble recovery. If it wasn’t for the fumble recovery we wouldn’t have even heard his name, other than the lineup announcements.

  39. By Ray on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    The dropped passes were a little concerning. Holmes I can write it off as rust, but JCo and Keller both dropped passes that they normally catch. I think I was most impressed with Sanchez on the last drive of the first half. I couldn’t believe they were calling all those pass plays in a torrential downpour and he was making some nice throws all things considered.
    Defense was at it’s worst when we should have been been putting the nails in the coffin…. 3rd & 17, TD to Moss, 3rd & 19 TD to Harvin. D needs to get off the field when they have the chance. Great win, but this team can be better.
    Randy what’s the word on Coleman?

    Ray, Rex Ryan did not mention Drew Coleman today. Coleman had cramps Monday night and returned to the game at the end. This week’s first injury report comes Wednesday afternoon so we’ll see pretty quickly if there are any issues with DC.

    This will get overlooked because it was a win, if we lost people would be calling for Shotty’s head again, but what happened toward the end of the game, and not just the 2 minute drill. The run was working, we needed to take time off the clock, and we should have ran the ball more. Should have easily ran for 200 yards again.

    GaryC you are so right about defense, offense is bailing them out late in every game. Shonn Greene touchdown drive was huge answer when defense was reeling. If Favre connects with wide open Harvin after clueless Revis gets faked out of his jock, that goes for 6 for Vikes and Jets lose, and we never hear about Lowery’s pick. Favre may not be able to lift his arm above his waist today, gotta respect him, he is a warrior. Also, Rex, what was up with clock management at 2 minute warning? Awful. Jets can’t keep winning with their currnt red zone percentage, field goals won’t cut it as season progresses.

    CLOCK MANAGEMENT ?!?

    OMG, that actually could have cost us the game. That was awful with 2 minutes to go. That should never happen, ever ever. That’s coaching and the entire coaching staff fell down there. ESPN commentators were in disbelief. Go to the line and snap the ball at the proper time, should have been with 2:01 on the GAME clock. We handed them 40 extra seconds of clock time, fortunately Lowery saved the day. Hope the coaching staff will look at this, figure out where the mistake was made and correct it immediately.

    The first half was great, Folk came through big time though a least a couple of those 3’s should have been TD’s, they need to find out why they weren’t ! D was playing lights out in first half, second half Rex should have gone for cover instead of blitz, especially after Favre/Moss burned them on it for their first td, blitzing any good QB is a risk, and the odds get worse if their deep in your territory, especially if its a QB like Favre/Brady/Manning, not to mention having damn good receivers. I felt play calling got a little skewed in the 2nd half, and it took awhile to get it back, very poor time mgmt, MS for an early snap,but also play calling, going pass instead of run, with an incomplete pass stopping the clock. “GREAT WIN’ !!!!!!!

    Another nail biter for sure … Hats off to the O-line, Folk, and Cromartie … Revis looked flat and is a starting to look like a season long liability …. next time he holds out he better think twice about missing camp. The weather was a huge factor … the game would have been over at half time otherwise. Glad to see us pull it out though …

    Lowery … great interception …. next time sit your you know what down … there was a 1:30 seconds left …. 1 quick strike for a TD and an onsides kick and we could have lost.

    Ira, Revis is not going to get any slack from me nor anyone else that is a true Fan. The guy held out and must have spent a lot of time sipping latte’s and counting his money because he did not come back in shape and is the reason he is hurt. The season is a third over and he is contributing nothing. I said it when he was holding out do not break the bank this is a team sport and we will win this year without him. Secondly, I mentioned that Rex should go slow with him instead they played him way to much in the Ravens game he wasn’t ready. He is going to be a non factor the rest of the year because that is what it’s going to take for him to get back in shape and over his injury (supposed).

    Hey Guys easy on the Folk koolaide. He was great last night playing ahead the whole game. He has the worst FG percentage in the NFL for kicks inside the 30 and his problem has always been in big spots and playing from behind.

    O= BE is playing his tail off to stay with the team in case you missed it. The dude want to be a Jet and it shows. DK was doubled last night, smart move by Sanchez to look other places.

    Cromartie deserves the game ball… he’s done nothing but benefit the team since day 1…and for a team who last yr was calling revis the best cover corner in the sport he looks like a waste of $ from what I’ve seen of him so far, offense could not get into the endzone, I don’t know if that was due 2 the weather, or if marck sanchez just wasn’t having the best game…. defense won the game for us… hats off to lowery he’s a true jet, plays 60 minutes of football and didn’t give up on the play wich saved us the win

    First off, to everybody who is saying he should of taken a knee… do the math, him scoring put the game away, we were up 22 – 20 a touchdown adds 6 points +1 for EXTRA POINTl which means it’s a 9 point game.. that’s two possessions.. don’t embarrass yourselves jets fans, math is easy.

    LETS GO JETS and Math…

    FxRage, they say hind sight is 20/20 for a reason. But, “what if” the extra point is blocked or missed, Favre now has over one minute to go down the field (like he had been doing in the 2nd half) get the TD, then get the 2 pt conversion? What does that make the score then? Do the math. Yes, it worked out because everything fell in to place, it don’t always work that way. Now, had he taken a knee inside the five, the clock runs out, Minn is out of time outs, and there is no way Favre touches the ball again. Final score, with out a doubt, 22-20 Jets.

    Hey guys and gals, just got my email turned back on and it’s great to see what everybody had to say after such a great win! No question the old Jets would’ve found a way to lose this game. As I said to Art, who posted above, as we were watching the rainy game out here in sweltering Southern Cal, “I hate it when I gotta start pulling for the D to make a play to win the game” but Lowery did it, and against one of the greatest QBs ever on a very good team, a team that was better than us last year. But of course it’s not all sunshine: Blinka, I totally agree with you on Schotty on first-and-goal, if we get two yards on the first play, he starts throwing. Pretty weird for what’s supposed to be a ground and pound team.

    scjoe: I will support you 100 %. There is no arm past 45 yds in Sanchez. The good news is that Shotty has figured out how to make the best of what is there.
