Jets vs. Chargers video game wrap-up: Everything we understand
The Jets came out gunning versus the Chargers, making several plays behind the line of scrimmage and blocking a punt on their very first protective stand Sunday. That led to a quick touchdown and an early advantage for New york city, but things went downhill from there.
Sam Ficken proceeded to miss the PAT, the very first sign that things could get Jetsy rather rapidly. Joe Flacco lobbed a pick-six quickly thereafter, and just like that, the lead was erased.
With Justin Herbert, confident and strong-armed, orchestrating the offense, Los Angeles never looked back and cruised to a 34-28 win, it’s 3rd of the season. The Jets hung around late, but fell to 0-10 on the season.
Growing Discomforts: Annihilated by injuries and stopped working offseason additions, the Jets had to begin 2 rookie corners, Bryce Hall and Lamar Jackson, on the exterior. Justin Herbert took no concern with that, zipping the ball all over the field with little concern for New York’s inexperienced secondary (novice S Ashtyn Davis also started). While Gang Green’s young defense brought some juice early in the video game, Herbert was the novice who controlled, throwing for 366 lawns and 3 goals. It was great to see the Jets really assessing some of their young gamers, but Herbert had his way with them through the air. Keenan Allen also had fun dabbling the Jets’ rookies, as the Chargers wideout had more than 100 yards prior to halftime. He ended up with 16 catches, 145 yards and one rating. Where Were the Wideouts? The Jets had their top 3 receivers once again on Sunday– a rarity this season– however they didn’t benefit from their weapons until it was far too late. New York failed to complete a pass to any pass receiver in the first half and only targeted the position two times. Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims and Jamison Crowder got relatively associated with the 2nd half, however Los Angeles was already up huge at that point. Flacco’s Failings: Between a telegraphed pick-six to begin his day and virtually waiting on Joey Bosa to wreck him, Flacco did not play like an experienced veteran Sunday. He completed the day 15-30 with 205 backyards, one goal, one interception and an 80.6 rating.

It was over when, with less than 2 minutes to go in the game, the Jets stopped working to transform on fourth and 9. Flacco went deep to Mims, however Tevaughn Campbell had the Jets receiver blanketed and preserved an eight-point lead. L.A. then took a deliberate safety, leaving just one second on the clock. The video game then ended on a well-covered kickoff.
DE Henry Anderson: Anderson has actually struggled this season, however he had a game to hang his helmet on Sunday. Anderson made plays all over the field, most especially blocking the previously mentioned punt and splitting a sack with Quinnen Williams.
Next on the Jets’ march of torment is a rematch with the Miami Dolphins. Miami got the very best of New York in Week 6, winning 24-0. The 2 groups will fulfill again on Sunday at 1 p.m. in New Jersey.
