The New York Jets youngsters flashed interesting potential against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.
Wait a second; these are the New York Jets?
The 2020 Jets aren’t supposed to showcase eye-popping talent at the wide receiver position. The Jets aren’t supposed to attack opposing defenses downfield when they dare for them to do that exact thing.
Yet, there we all were, watching a Joe Flacco-led Jets offense take chunks against a Bill Belichick defense on Monday Night Football.
Embattled newcomer Breshad Perriman officially busted out with two touchdowns and a hundred-yard game. Jamison Crowder continued to do his slot thing, as he usually does. And young Denzel Mims continued to impress when given the opportunity.
Speaking of Mims, Blewett breaks down the kid’s talents in his latest show. From his releases to his stems, all the way to his excellent catch radius, what we’re seeing on tape is extremely promising.
Perriman—despite the early touchdown drop—is also impressing in some of the same areas. For the first time all season, the Jets had their top three receivers in the lineup, and for the first time all year, the offense dictated terms.
Defensively, there’s still a lot more bad than good. Bryce Huff is still on the upswing, as is John Franklin-Myers, which is promising. Quinnen Williams missed the game, unfortunately, but he’s another piece to keep an eye on as the second half of the season moves forward.
Blewett also dives into Flacco’s quarterbacking, something that came as a mini-surprise in real-time. Would the team have produced in a similar fashion if Sam Darnold was behind center?
All of that and more on Blewett’s Blitz 105.
