The magic of Mike white flashed for an instant and an avalanche of darkness ensued. Mike White stayed in long enough to throw a touchdown to Elijah Moore, then got hit on the forearm causing an injury that knocked him out of the game. That seemed to kill any momentum the Jets had on offense.
The New York Jets defensive line for the most part has been one of the strongest part of this team but like in New England they folded early against a very talented Colts offensive line. Jonathan Taylor and the Colts stable of backs spent most of the game running Scott free five to seven yards before being touched as the Jets vaunted D line struggle to get off their blocks exposing their linebackers. Meanwhile one the outside The Colts Michael Pitman jr could not be contained.
Mike Lafleur has been good of late and it continued with Josh Johnson who finished with 317 and 3 touchdowns making things interesting late in the game. This was also a coming out of sorts for Elijah Moore who scored two touchdowns and amassed 84 yards. This team is mire talentwd than pass Jets teams and you see it in players like Carter 1 and Moore.
The roller coaster ride that is the Jets season continues with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Reasons for why there is little continuity of performance are multiple and the facts are this team is not ready for primetime. There’s more that needs to be done to complete this team and most of it won’t be until the offseason. Here’s to a very long season Jets fans.
