The newest edition of Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the emergence of the New York Jets’ youngsters against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Here come the kids.
Don’t look now, but the New York Jets‘ youngsters are coming. Whether it’s wide receiver Denzel Mims, cornerback Bryce Hall or the mountain of a left tackle called Mekhi Becton, Joe Douglas’s youngsters are furiously making a name for themselves in the NFL.
Sure, the struggling Jets are now 0-10. Sure, only six more losses separate them from winless infamy. But it’s important to focus on what the future holds.
For the second-straight game—minus a first half that featured a conservative game plan—Joe Flacco let the ball fly. It included a big shot to Breshad Perriman as well as Chris Herndon‘s first touchdown of the season. He also hit young Mims three times for 71 yards in the second half, many of which included clutch shots during the final drive.
After tallying his second touchdown of the season, La’Mical Perine, unfortunately, exited the game with a high-ankle sprain. He’ll not be on the shelf (IR) for at least the next three weeks, but there’s plenty of exciting young talent across the depth chart.
Defensively, No. 3 pick Quinnen Williams continues to make his move. Not only was he in on half a sack against impressive rookie Justin Herbert, but he was also a force against the Bolts’ rushing attack.
