FLORHAM PARK http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/a … ple-jersey , N.J. (AP) Leonard Williams knows exactly what the stat sheet shows from the New York Jets last game, and he realizes how it looks to some fans and media.The big defensive end played 65 of 77 snaps in the 21-17 loss at Cleveland and didnt register a single statistic.No tackles, no sacks, no quarterback hits. Not even a pass defensed. But there was plenty of criticism of arguably the Jets best all-around defensive player.I just simply didnt get much action, Williams said Friday. Thats pretty much it. In the run game, I was in my gap. It wasnt like I was getting blown off the ball and was just playing bad. Im setting the gap and Im in my B-gap, and the ball goes the opposite way. In pass-rushing situations, Im getting double-teamed or the ball comes out quick. It just happens like that sometimes. Youre not always going to get all the action in every game.I definitely wasnt worried about the stat sheet.That said, he understands why some are.Williams is in his fourth NFL season after being the Jets first-round pick No. 6 overall in 2015. He has 12 career sacks, but only two in his last 22 games and none in his last seven. That has raised eyebrows, with some wondering when or, if Williams will have the big-time breakout so many anticipated by now.Thats the reason why fans go to games, they want to see the big plays, they want to see the sacks, the touchdowns, the hoorah moments, Williams said. If youre looking at a guy youre expecting to make those type of moments http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com … len-jersey , and its not happening, its natural for a fan feel that way.New York has eight sacks this season, tying for 10th in the NFL, but Williams doesnt have any. Well, he actually did have a half-sack when he and Avery Williamson took down Miamis Ryan Tannehill in Week 3, but it was nullified by a penalty.Thats kind of disappointing, but at the same time, its driving me to get that first one even more, Williams said. I know they come in bunches, so once I start getting them, theyre going to keep coming, so Im definitely hungry to get after it.Opposing offenses have clearly singled him out in their game plans, intent on not letting him be the guy to punish their quarterbacks.Yeah, it started last year, too, so I try to work on beating double-teams, Williams said. Im not making an excuse about it and I try not to say http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com … son-jersey , Oh, because Im getting double-teamed, thats why Im not this and this and this. Instead, Im trying to figure out how to beat a double-team.Thats a work in progress, and hes certainly getting plenty of practice in games.Also, the statistics might not show the entire story.In the Jets defensive line room, the players have a fines system in which they get dinged for what Williams calls stupid, silly stuff. They can have the amount they owe knocked down a bit for examples of what they classify as hidden production.If Im running with the outside backer and I pick the guy really good for him and he comes free and makes the sack, Williams explained, thats a hidden-production type of thing.While the Jets dont keep actual stats on hidden production, it helps explain why coach Todd Bowles gave Williams a positive grade for his game against Cleveland.I thought they tried to double him a lot and he got to the quarterback when the ball was out, the coach said. He took the pressure off the other guys. They sent two or three guys at him almost every other play, but Leonard caused a lot of other people to make plays and that doesnt show up on the stat sheet. Im happy with what he did.Make no mistake: Williams would like to have some tackles and sacks next to his name. For now, Williams isnt putting extra pressure on himself or getting frustrated. Hes focused on making sure hes doing his job at all times so that the film proves it when the team gathers.Im not going to say that stats dont matter completely, he said. Im just saying that if theres a game where I didnt get as much stats as I wanted to, it depends on how I looked on film. If I didnt get stats, but I looked good on film I was in my right spot http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com … row-jersey , I was doing what I was supposed to do, I didnt have any mental errors and Im helping the other guys get freed up then thats a good game to me.But, if I didnt have any stats and Im playing bad, then thats a different story, and Im going to be really hard on myself. At the same time, were all players and production matters in any type of job. I clearly want the stats, but if Im watching film and it just didnt work out that way, Im not going to beat myself up about it if I did I was supposed to do. NEW ORLEANS (AP)Saints All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan grinned playfully as he glanced up at a bottle of red wine in the top shelf of his locker and asked if anyone knew Carolina quarterback Cam Newtons address. A bottle with the name Jordan on the label even if it isnt made by the Saints stars family might be the last thing Newton wants right now. Drew Brees and his receiving corps came through when Carolina stifled New Orleans prolific backfield, and a relentless Jordan spearheaded a late defensive stand to seal a 31-26 an NFC wild-card round victory on Sunday.Article continues below ... You cant be more happy about the way we played in terms of how we finished the game, Jordan said. We almost let them back in the game, but here I am standing as winner. Here I am, as a Cam Jordan, sending Cam Newton a bottle of Jordan wine. Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, but one more completion would have considerably lowered the stress level on the Saints sideline. Coach Sean Payton kept the offense on the field on fourth-and-short with two minutes remaining and Carolina out of timeouts, hoping for one more first down that would have allowed New Orleans to run out the clock. But Brees couldnt find an open receiver, was flushed out of the pocket and decided his best option was to throw it up for grabs. It was intercepted by safety Mike Adams, which turned out better for New Orleans than an incompletion because it meant the Panthers had to start from their own 31 instead of mid-field. Still http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.co … air-jersey , Newton completed three straight passes to move the Panthers to the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left before New Orleans resistance stiffened. Im frustrated, Newton said. I hate that I couldnt do enough to get a win today for a lot of guys that I think so highly of. I just have to be better, he added. Im not going to take the cowardly way and point somebody else out. The comeback bid began to fizzle when Jordan induced an intentional grounding penalty on Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a requiring 10-second runoff that left 20 seconds on the clock. After an incompletion in the end zone, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz , ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning the first postseason game theyve played in four seasons. The coaches wanted to get the ball out of the quarterbacks hands fast, Bell said. They dialed it up and I said, `Go make a play. Brees touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Fullback Zach line and running back Alvin Kamara each ran for short touchdowns, the latter set up by Michael Thomas 46-yard reception . What weve shown offensively is we have a lot of ways to be effective, Brees said, mentioning clutch first-down catches by Brandon Coleman and Willie Snead in addition to the big plays by Ginn and Thomas. The ball was spread around quite a bit and guys were making plays when they had the chances. Thomas caught eight passes for 131 yards on a day when the Saints needed the passing game to compensate for a ground game that struggled to get going. Thomas said when he noticed the Panthers playing with one safety deep instead of their usual two, youre licking your chops with a quarterback like Drew Brees and the talent we have. We knew what we had to do and it was on the receivers. Ginn, a former Panthers receiver, celebrated the sweep of his former team by holding up a broom in the locker room. MISSED OPPORTUNITIES Helped by the presence of tight end Greg Olsen who did not play in the teams previous two meetings Newton marched Carolina into Saints territory more often than not. But the Panthers stalled four times inside the New Orleans 25 in the first three quarters. They settled for four field goal attempts on those drives, one of which kicker Graham Gano surprisingly missed from 25-yards. Jordan called the Saints red-zone stops huge. Had half of those been touchdowns, wed be sitting in a different spot http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.co … ton-jersey , Jordan said. KEY STATS Olsen had eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. Newton finished 24 of 40 passing for 349 yards and two touchdowns, including a 56-yard scoring strike to Christian McCaffrey that pulled the Panthers within a touchdown with 4:09 left. Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, who combined for more than 3,000 yards from scrimmage this season, were held to 68 total yards. RUSHING THE PASSSER Newton was sacked four times, once each by Bell, Jordan, Jonathan Freeney, and David Onyemata. The sack by Onyemata came as Newton tried to spin away from Tyeler Davison and slammed his head into Onyematas chest. Newton appeared to be checked for a concussion, but missed only one play before returning to the game on Carolinas next possession Newton sat on the field near the sideline after the play, and while a new NFL rule calls for players to be taken to the locker room to be evaluated for concussions if they appear to be struggling to stand, Newton said part of his helmet got pushed into his eyelid. Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered a similar explanation and added that Newton only sat down to give backup Derek Anderson more time to warm up. The NFL said it planned to discuss the matter with the Panthers medical staff before commenting further. INJURIES Panthers: Cornerback Daryl Worley briefly was placed in the concussion protocol but also cleared to return during the game. Saints: Starting left guard Andrus Peat was carted off the field with a broken left fibula. UP NEXT Panthers: Begin the offseason after their fourth trip to the playoffs in five years lasted on game. Saints: Move on to play at Minnesota in the NFC Divisional playoffs.
