Grade: B FINAL GRADE OF RUNNING BACKS FACED: B+ The grades are all opinion but many will agree with me that we have faced tougher running backs than the Jets so far. This is only to make the point that yes, maybe the Jets have the best running defense statistically. But in reality, a portion of that contributes to the opponents they have faced.
