Jets: Week 7 Recap
Once Week Seven came around, the little optimism some Jets fans had was crushed after the absolute blowout of a game the Jets had against the Patriots. This game was somehow our worst game, even when I thought it couldn’t get any worse. The final score was 54-13, and if it could be summed up in one word: embarrassing. On top of the absolutely crushing defeat, our starting QB Zach Wilson went down with a PCL sprain and will be out for 2-4 weeks. From this point in the season, it’s not looking too good for the New York team, as we turn to the next man up, QB Mike White who had his first NFL regular season snap on Sunday. He didn’t play particularly well going 20/32, 202 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Surprisingly, even though we lost, a few bright spots somewhat shined and could look good for our future. Our offensive weapons have looked very solid despite only scoring two touchdowns. Rookie WR Elijah Moore had a quiet game, catching one pass for 13 yards and a rushing touchdown on a 19 yard play. The other two weapons I noticed that had serviceable games are WR Corey Davis and RB Michael Carter. Davis, posting 4 receptions, 47 yards, and a touchdown, while Carter put up 11 carries for 37 yards, with 8 receptions for 67 yards. In all honesty, even though we got completely destroyed, there are a few spots on our offense that are looking dangerous. Week 8 we take on the Cincinnati Bengals, who have surprised practically the whole NFL, sitting at a 5-2 record atop the AFC North above notable teams like the Ravens, Browns, and Steelers. Nonetheless, it will be a tough matchup for the green and white, especially without their young QB Zach Wilson.
