Jets Beat: Secondary in for a 'reality check' against Aaron Rodgers

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jets beat writer Rich Cimini: The patchwork secondary came away from the opener feeling pretty good about itself, but I think they're in for a reality check against Aaron Rodgers & Co. If Dee Milliner sits out again with a high-ankle sprain -- he is a question mark -- the starters will be Darrin Walls and Antonio Allen, a converted safety whose experience at cornerback consists of 48 preseason snaps and one regular-season game. Allen is a big, physical player, a terrific tackler, but he will struggle against a polished route runner like Jordy Nelson. Ryan is a clever defensive coach, but he will have to pull a rabbit out of his hat to slow down the Packers' passing attack.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Jets have historically been tough to run on -- they posted a league-best 3.4 YPC last season -- but teams have been able to move the ball through the air. The Packers will try to run the ball with Eddie Lacy, but if he doesn't get off to a hot start, expect a lot of Rodgers in on Sunday.
