The Jets gave up a lead for the third straight week in opposition to the Falcons on Sunday and so they wound up as 25-20 losers for the third straight week when a late try to rally fell quick.
One member of the Jets offense thinks their play calling was a contributor to the defeat. The Jets and Falcons performed in a driving rainstorm that featured loads of wind, which led working again Matt Forte to say that the Jets erred by working the ball 21 occasions and calling 37 pbades.
“I’m positively shocked by that, as a result of we knew the climate was going to be like that,” Forte mentioned, through Manish Mehta of the New York Every day Information. “It continued to rain the whole recreation. I believe we solely ran the ball 20 occasions. (There) ought to have been no less than one individual getting 20 carries — one thing like that — with the best way the climate was. I badumed we have been going to grind them out on the bottom like that, nevertheless it ended up not turning out that means.”
The Jets led to start out the fourth quarter and by no means trailed by greater than 5 factors, however the cut up was 13 pbades and two runs within the remaining 15 minutes of the sport.
Pinning the whole loss on the play calling can be silly. Chandler Catanzaro missed two discipline objectives, the protection let Tevin Coleman break unfastened for a 52-yard run to arrange the go-ahead Falcons landing and Jeremy Kerley muffed a punt with the Jets down two factors within the fourth quarter.
Your complete mixture was an excessive amount of for the Jets to beat and their three-game skid leaves them with a Three-5 report on the midway level of their season.
