New York Jets,
The New York Jets lose to division opponent Buffalo Bills .The Bills routed the Jets 37-14. .Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde season contiunes.Jets are 4-1 at home and 1-4 on the road.My 8-8 predictions is right on target.The Jets become 1st Team in NFL History to alternate wins and losses over the first 10 Games.
Geno Smith finished 8/23 for 103 yards, with a fumble lost and 3 interceptions. the Jets offense looked terrible from play calling to performance.Smith looked like he took a step back in his progress.He was missing the underneath coverage on all of the interceptions. Smith showed the defense where he was throwing by staring at his targeted receiver.
Do we have a QB controversy?
Matt Simms came in and scored his’ first career touchdown pass to Jeff Cumberland’s team-leading 3rd touchdown reception this season cut the deficit to 34-14.Simms led the Jets down the field on his first drive. Simms finished 4/6 60 yards 1 touchdown.
Jets General Manager John Idzik must know what he has in Smith by Week 16. The upcoming QB draft is too critical to think you are all set at that position. The next 6 weeks Smith will be looked at very carefully.
Coach Rex Ryan says after the game Geno Smith will be the starter.
Jets Offense Line
The offensive line did a bad job on protecting Smith.Rookie Brian Winters had rough day and part reason Smith got pummeled.
The Jets Offense line showing a need of completely rebuilt in off-season using draft and all the cap space they will create.
Running back Chris Ivory is very productive 15 carries for 98 yards.Ivory ran up middle for 69-yard run,and had the Jets’ longest run since Thomas Jones 71-yards touchdowns run vs Bills in 2009.However Ivory didnt score his touchdown play.
The Jets called on DT Sheldon Richardson to block as fullback on 4th-and-goal from the one yard line.Ivory’s 10th Career rushing touchdown.
Nick Folk Misses Field Goal
Jets kicker Nick Folk misses 48-yard field goal into swirling wind, his streak ends at 23 consecutive field goal made.He one short of former Jet kicker Jay Feely’s franchise record. Jets longest field goal streaks in Jets history: Jay Feely, 24, 2008-09; Nick Folk, 23, 2013; Pat Leahy, 22, 1985-86.
Bills QB EJ Manuel had back-to-back passes–40 yards to TJ Graham past Jets CB Dee Milliner,and 43 yards to Marquise Goodwin past Jets CB Antonio Cromartie.Well played by a rookie quarterback. The Jets secondary allowed EJ Manuel to go 20/28 for 245 yards without his top two receivers.
Dee Milliner took a step back after his progress against the Saints. He showed horrible ball awareness.Another rookie taking a step down.
According to New York Post Brain Costello Rex Ryan said this on Milliner starting. “He’ll definitely remain in the starting lineup. I thought Dee played extremely well, notwithstanding the deep ball.”
