Game facts

Jets facts

After beating the Raiders in Week 1, the Jets are seeking to improve to 2-0 at home. 

Eric Decker and Dee Milliner are both dealing with injuries but head coach Rex Ryan believes they will play Monday.

Decker is the team's leading receiver with 137 yards, good for 28th in the NFL.

Geno Smith completed 16 of 32 passes for 176 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Packers. He also ran for 26 yards and a touchdown. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said this week he needs to trust Smith to make pre-snap adjustments. Mornhinweg's timeout in the fourth quarter Sunday cost the Jets a touchdown.

The NFL is investigating Jets receiver Quincy Enunwa's domestic violence arrest. Enunwa was a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. He is currently on the practice squad. 

The Jets are 19-27 all-time on Monday Night Football. 

The Jets are averaging 5.3 yards per offensive play, 18th-best in the NFL.

The Jets' rush defense is allowing 2.8 yards per run, the third-best in the NFL.

Jets running back Chris Ivory is averaging 6.3 yards per carry, the third-best in the NFL.

This is the second consecutive primetime game for the Bears, who played the 49ers on Sunday Night Football in Week 2. 

Jay Cutler took a helmet to the chest Sunday, but he stayed in the game and led the Chicago comeback. 

Brandon Marshall is tied for the league lead in receiving touchdowns with four. He had three scores against San Francisco.

Attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference Wednesday to criticize the NFL's handling of domestic abuse allegations against Marshall in 2006 and 2007. Bears GM Phil Emery says Marshall has the team's support. 

The Bears are tied with the Broncos for the most passing touchdowns per game at three. 

Every team in the NFC North was 1-1 entering Week 3. The Lions beat the Packers and the Vikings lost to the Saints on Sunday.
