I have an AL MVP ballot this year, and I know who I'm putting on top: Josh Donaldson #1, Mike Trout #2 in a close race. For Yankees MVP? It's got to be Alex Rodriguez, who led the team in HRs (33), OBP and OPS and played in 151 games. Who else could it be?

Strange, but true: Ryan Fitzpatrick's 91.4 QBR was only the third 90+ QBR for the Jets over the last three seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info. The previous two, both by Geno Smith, also came against Miami on the road.

Putting the Jets' fast start into perspective: They're 3-1 for the first time since 2010. Yesterday was their third win by at least 13 points; they had two such wins in the previous two seasons. As for Chris Ivory's 166 rushing yards, it was the most by a Jet since Thomas Jones ran for 210 in Week 6 of 2009.
