Blewett’s Blitz breaks down the season finale, the New York Jets’ 28-14 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
That’s it. That’s all she wrote. The New York Jets‘ 2020 season has officially (and perhaps, fortunately) come and gone.
The team’s 28-14 loss to the New England Patriots in the season finale snapped an incredible two-game winning streak, but it also gave the Jets their 14th loss of the season.
While the organization has seen plenty of bad seasons, never has it experienced a 14-loss campaign. Only the 1996 squad’s 1-15 mark can claim more losses in a single season.
Now, it’s about finding the right head coach. Joe Douglas, Christopher Johnson and Hymie Elhai have already interviewed Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and have also recently put in a request to interview former Jet and current New Orleans Saints defensive backs coach Aaron Glenn.
That’s just the first step. The steps after that will revolve around personnel.
In New England, the team finished on a bit of a low-note. The young defensive line put forth another solid effort, but the Mekhi Becton and Denzel Mims injuries sent the team into the offseason the wrong way.
Both kids should be fine moving forward, but how did they play against the Pats prior to their respective exits? Is Marcus Maye a definite re-sign candidate for the Jets? And which young players are keepers?
Blewett’s Blitz breaks down all of that and more on the latest edition of his film breakdown.
