Grading the Jets’ 27-twenty reduction to the Falcons in London on Sunday.


The Jets started off off little by little … all over again. They went 3-and-out on their 1st two drives and turned the ball over on the third. Quarterback Zach Wilson (19-of-32, 192 yards, one INT, sixty three.five QB rating) struggled to entire even uncomplicated passes. The Jets had no working match to converse of (sixty four total rushing yards) and managed just 230 total yards on 52 performs. The Jets only had 3 drives of extended than 4 performs. Vast receiver Corey Davis (4 catches, forty five yards) had a tranquil working day.

Quality: D


The Jets could not get off the area on third down, allowing the Falcons to transform nine-of-14 on the down. With Calvin Ridley out, it was very clear who the Falcons would go to, but the Jets could not cease rookie tight end Kyle Pitts (nine catches, 119 yards, TD) or RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson (114 total yards from scrimmage). Quarterback Matt Ryan (33-of-forty five, 342 yards, 2 TDS, 109.seven rating) picked the Jets apart and negated the pass rush ( sacks) by getting rid of the ball speedily. Linebackers Quincy Williams (two pressured fumbles) and C.J. Mosley (one particular pressured fumble) did some harm.

Quality: C-

Tevin Coleman returned the opening kickoff of the 2nd half 65 yards and that set up a Jets touchdown. Sunday was the 1st time Coleman ever returned kicks in the NFL. Punter Thomas Morstead place two punt within the twenty and kicker Matt Ammendola hit two area aims but skipped an extra position. The coverage groups ended up good.

The Jets seemed like they ended up not prepared to engage in. That is on the coaches. The team went 3-and-out on their 1st two series. The protection could not cease Pitts or Patterson. Robert Saleh spoke all week about how fantastic the team’s approach was for dealing with the excursion to London. It did not show. Offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur created some definitely questionable phone calls. Give them credit score for some in-match changes that slowed the Falcons in the 2nd half, but the 1st half was inexcusable.
