Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the New York Jets’ 23-20 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, which brings a familiar dark feeling.

Hello darkness, my old friend.

The Simon & Garfunkel classic, “Sound of Silence,” is a melody familiar to all New York Jets fans. Forget just a few instances; from the dreadful decade of the 1970s to A.J. Duhe, the Doug Brien game to the Rex Ryan letdown in Pittsburgh, darkness has invaded the Jets fans’ lives constantly.

Add another to the books.


The Jets’ 23-20 victory over the Los Angeles Rams brings unusual pain. There’s no question that every football player and coach should want to win no matter the situation, but a young man named Trevor Lawrence complicates things.

Now, courtesy of the victory, the Jacksonville Jaguars hold down the No. 1 position in the 2021 NFL draft, which means they have the inside track to Lawrence.

The stunner in L.A. happened for a variety of reasons. For one, Sam Darnold played well. He wasn’t spectacular, but he did just enough to get by. Secondly, Frank Bush‘s defense flew around the field, and it was apparent from the first snap.

Quinnen Williams continued to showcase his emerging skills, as did Bryce Hall, who came up with the first theft of his NFL career.

Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the entire game with a focus on the youngsters who seem to be striving to form a Joe Douglas-created nucleus.
