Blewett’s Blitz digs into the New York Jets’ dispirited effort in Kansas City against the Chiefs this past Sunday which wasn’t pretty.
It wasn’t pretty. The New York Jets‘ 35-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this past Sunday could have produced a much more lopsided score. Patrick Mahomes ripped through Gregg Williams’s defense routinely and Sam Darnold couldn’t do much—as per usual.
Then again, Adam Gase’s offense wasn’t completely dreadful early in the contest. Darnold and company helped lead the offense to three field goals in the game—all from newcomer Sergio Castillo.
The negatives are obvious; the same deficiencies we’ve witnessed all season continued at Arrowhead Stadium. The positives, however, are important at this stage of the game.
Quinnen Williams—who did not practice on Thursday—put forth a tremendous effort against the Chiefs. He nearly sacked Mahomes, diagnosed and finished a screen, and continued to showcase the attributes that made him the No. 3 choice in the 2019 NFL draft.
Denzel Mims led the team in receiving again. His 27-yard haul on a fade from Darnold demonstrated his outside-threat abilities. And, of course, Mekhi Becton continues his path towards elite left tackle status in the NFL.
Blewett’s Blitz breaks all of this down (and more) in his latest film session.
