The New York Jets’ march towards the No. 1 total choose practically hit a snag final week in opposition to the Patriots. If not for Cam Newton and firm engineering a last-minute subject purpose as a way to stop time beyond regulation, the Jets would have given up the within observe for the highest choice and, in doing so, ruined the one good factor taking place for them this season.
However whereas the Jets evaded a pricey win, they face off Sunday in opposition to a staff that focuses on second-half implosions: the Los Angeles Chargers. That would imply larger than anticipated manufacturing from a New York offense that has achieved little to impress.
Joe Flacco dealt with himself higher than anticipated throughout final week’s near-upset of the Patriots. The veteran signal-caller accomplished 18 of his 25 passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception, simply his best efficiency since leaving the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco doesn’t have any plus trait exterior of his arm power, however he does sufficient issues adequately to make the most of what the protection provides him more often than not. That may appear damning, however it represents a marked step up from what Sam Darnold offered the Jets this season.
And the Chargers protection hasn’t achieved a lot to decelerate quarterbacks in current weeks, yielding 9 passing touchdowns and one other on the bottom over the previous 4 video games. Flacco gained’t problem the Chargers together with his legs, however he may need one other respectable day in him. Nonetheless, solely the deepest season-long leagues gained’t have higher choices out there.
