Blewett’s Blitz gets back into the New York Jets film room to break down the loss to the Denver Broncos in its entirety.
Joe Blewett hits the film room again, but this time, things are different: the New York Jets didn’t get blown out.
That’s right, ladies and gents … the Jets lost a hard-fought game to the Denver Broncos last Thursday night and Blewett’s Blitz is here to break it all down.
For Sam Darnold, the song remains the same. Despite a moment that saw him transform into Steve Young (that 46-yard touchdown run that had the USC product more shocked than anybody else), the Jets quarterback struggled.
He missed wide-open targets all night, continued to lock his eyes in one spot and failed to roll through his progressions. Aside from the touchdown on the ground and a nice throw-on-the-run to Jeff Smith, Darnold didn’t impress anybody.
Head coach Adam Gase wasn’t much better. Neither was the defense, a unit that continued to miss tackles. The imagination lacked all night long. On the bright side, the Jets did attack one-on-one situations a bit more, which they failed to do over the first three weeks, but it didn’t yield much success.
Third-string quarterback Brett Rypien may have thrown three interceptions—including a gift-wrapped pick-6 to Pierre Desir—but he also made plays when his team needed it most.
On the positive side of things, Quinnen Williams played well again, as did John Franklin-Myers and Bryce Huff, who continue to open eyes across the defensive line.
