The New York Jets showcased encouraging signs in their Week 7 loss to the Buffalo Bills, and Blewett’s Blitz is all over it.

What? Encouraging signs coupled with the New York Jets? What world are we living in? What year is this?

Before you slap yourself silly for the next 10 minutes until your cheeks are numb, it’s true; the Jets did, indeed, showcase encouraging signs in their Week 7 loss to the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium.

First and foremost, Dowell Loggains’s plan early in the game made at least some sense. Certain plays linked to one another, such as a couple of outsize zones paired with a play-action off of an outside-zone action. It led to yardage and eventually a shot in the red-zone on the first drive.

Secondly, young Denzel Mims experienced his first taste of NFL action, and he didn’t disappoint. Snagging four balls for 42 yards (all in the first half), Mims looked the part in his first shot.

Perhaps most importantly for the offense, and the direction of the franchise moving forward, Joe Douglas’s crown jewel of the 2020 NFL draft, Mekhi Becton, was a beast. The kid was a man amongst boys while piling up highlights that resemble an all-state offensive lineman throwing around never-ready-for-prime-time high schoolers like ragdolls.

Defensively, Gregg Williams’s unit put forth a bend-but-don’t-break effort, but it was young Bryce Huff and a couple of others who impressed on tape.

Douglas’s youngsters are starting to pick up a little bit of momentum, and Blewett’s Blitz is here to deliver the positives from the New York Jets’ latest loss.
