New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco found Breshad Perriman for a 49-yard touchdown to get things started in the second half.

It’s almost as if somebody wiped the New York Jets offensive coaching staff’s memories completely clean after the New England Patriots game. After taking huge chunks from Bill Belichick’s defense all night, the Jets opened up the Los Angeles Chargers game with an ultra-conservative gameplan.

Such a strategy doesn’t work if the defense is playing aggressively and begging the offense to beat them over the top.

It ultimately led to a 24-6 halftime deficit, but the Jets quickly changed their tune to open up the second half when Joe Flacco found Breshad Perriman for a 49-yard score.

The Chargers’ single-high safety paid little attention to the streaking Perriman on the outside, something that cost Anthony Lynn‘s team six points.

Flacco completed three passes on the team’s initial second-half drive—as many completions as he totaled in the entirety of the first half. Jamison Crowder finally got on the board with a 16-yard completion, as did Jeff Smith, who snagged one for five yards.

Rookie Denzel Mims continues to sport a goose egg in the receptions department (one target).

Unfortunately for the Jets, impressive rookie Justin Herbert took his team on a 12-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a Keenan Allen touchdown reception. The Bolts’ 24-13 lead quickly turned into a 31-13 contest.

Herbert has already thrown three touchdown passes to go with 332 yards through three and a half quarters of play at SoFi Stadium.
