  1. Despite falling to the Houston Texans by a final score of 29-22, Jets fans are feeling pretty good today when looking back at what was easily rookie Sam Darnold’s best performance of his rookie season. Whether operating with a clean pocket or under duress, Darnold made several “wow” throws that allowed him to hand the game over to his defense with a lead and just five minutes remaining in the game. Todd Bowles’ defense would fizzle on the final drive, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty to be happy about as the Jets set their sights on next season. QB Sam Darnold: Darnold was the big story in this one, working a lot of the magic he showed at USC, firing the ball all over the field en route to a 24-38 night with 253 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns without an interception. Darnold also used his legs to pick up 35 yards on the ground and was poised throughout, keeping his eyes down the field in a sea of defenders, allowing him to connect with 10 different receivers. WR Robby Anderson: Anderson had a huge drop in the fourth quarter, but the most important takeaway is that of his 7 receptions for 96 yards, none of them came on “go” routes. Anderson caught passes on a variety of routes, including a post, a dig, a comeback and a hitch. Anderson’s route tree is expanding and his numbers are benefiting from it. Robby Anderson in two games since Sam Darnold got back under center: 11 receptions 172 yards 2 TD's Very promising. — Glenn Naughton (@AceFan23) December 16, 2018 LG Spencer Long: We’ll have to wait to get a better look on the All-22 in the coming days, but Long looked to have a solid day in pass protection at left guard where he could find himself starting next season as James Carpenter will be gone, and the Jets could look to add a center in the draft or free agency. WR Jermaine Kearse: It’s time to bench Kearse. He exceeded all expectations last season but has been invisible in 2018 and looks to be mailing it in at this point. His failure to make any attempt to adjust to a Darnold deep ball on the Jets final drive was the final nail in the coffin. Sit Kearse and let’s get a look at Deontay Burnett. DL Henry Anderson: Did the Jets really get Anderson for just a seventh round draft choice? The big man had three sacks, giving him six on the season, and showed why the Jets should be making his return a priority. OLB Jordan Jenkins: Jenkins picked up his career-high seventh sack as he continues to fly under the radar as a solid edge defender. Nobody is going to confuse him with Von Miller, but Jenkins does a nice job against the run and has shown that when the secondary gives him that extra split second, he does a decent of getting to the QB. Could he make a late push over the final two weeks and get to 10 sacks? We shall see. TE Chris Herndon: Herndon didn’t see nearly enough targets, but when he did, he made some key grabs and showed he can take a hit and hold on to the football. Along with Darnold at quarterback, the Jets look to finally have an answer at tight end. S Jamal Adams: Adams earned the second highest grade among Jets defenders per PFF at 83.0. His sack of Deshaun Watson knocked the Texans back 13 yards and Adams’ intensity around the line of scrimmage was on full display once again. #Jets top 5 defensive grades from yesterday's loss to the Texans (min. 15 snaps): 1. Steve McLendon- 89.7 2. Jamal Adams- 83.0 3. Frankie Luvu- 78.2 4. Leonard Williams- 78.1 5. Avery Williamson- 74.4#JetUp — PFF NY Jets (@PFF_Jets) December 16, 2018 Head Coach Todd Bowles: For reasons that only Todd Bowles will understand, he saw no need to double-team DeAndre Hopkins on defense, or JJ Watt on the offensive line. Both players made game-changing plays. Who could have seen that coming? RT Brandon Shell: Shell left the game early with a leg injury that may knock him out for the season, but aside from a single sack that he surrendered to Watt, Shell was having a solid day in pass protection against one of the elite fronts in the NFL. RB Trenton Cannon: Cannon’s most memorable play was drop on 3rd down and 3 that forced the Jets to punt, but it’s way too early to give up on the kid. When he gets even a few yards of space to work with, his game-breaking speed is evident. His special teams play has improved and he has the tools to make him a player who is worth developing over the next year or two.

  2. Thanks largely in part to poor coaching on the part of Todd Bowles and company, the Jets dropped a 29-22 contest to the Houston Texans despite Sam Darnold playing what was easily his best game as a pro up to this point. After staking Gang Green to a lead with five minutes to go in the fourth quarter, the Jets defense couldn’t hold on and allowed the Texans to score the game winning touchdown with just under three minutes remaining in the game. How’d everyone grade out? Let’s take a look. Quarterback: A Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold played his best game as a pro. Despite facing consistent pressure from one of the best defensive fronts on the NFL, Darnold looked composed and made several excellent throws on the move while keeping his eyes downfield. He showed good touch on a few balls that were dropped over defenders and made several plays with his legs. Darnold handed the lead to his defense with five minutes to go but they couldn’t hold on. Running Backs: C As has usually been the case with this group, they’re tough to grade because the run blocking hasn’t been there for much of the season. With little room to work with, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon struggled, putting up just 55 yards on 25 carries, but McGuire did find the end zone to take the lead late in the game after a big fumble early on. The pair also managed to catch six passes for 53 yards. Wide Receivers: B- Robby Anderson’s inability to hold on to the ball on the Jets’ drive immediately following the Texans go-ahead score was a killer, but the speedy receiver managed to have a big day all around (7 catches, 96 yards, 1 TD). Anderson continued to show he’s expanding his route tree, catching passes on a hitch, a dig, a post and a comeback while hauling in a touchdown for the second straight week. Jermaine Kearse failed to adjust to a ball deep down the middle on the Jets final drive that prevented a big play to get things going. Andre Roberts scored his first touchdown of the season as a receiver. Tight Ends: C+ We’d like to see Chris Herndon get some more targets in Jeremy Bates’ offense, but when he was targeted tonight, he did a nice job. Herndon caught 3 balls for 53 yards while Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson caught the only two passes that came their way for just 19 yards, Offensive Line: D+ The only reason this isn’t an “F” is because the line did hit a stretch in the middle of the game where they kept JJ Watt and Jadaveon Clowney in check, allowing Darnold to get in to a bit of a rhythm. All in all though, the Texans are just far more talented up front and the O-line gave up some key sacks late in the game. Defensive Line: B Henry Anderson carries the group by getting a career-high three sacks while Texans running backs were held to 21 yards on 13 carries. Linebackers: C The linebackers got a pair of sacks between Brandon Copeland and Jordan Jenkins but far too often we saw Watson sitting back in the pocket with little pressure. The Jets defense played with great intensity at times, but didn’t maintain it throughout. Secondary: F This one is on the coaches. Prized free agent Trumaine Johnson has been playing up to expectations in recent weeks, coming away with three interceptions over the past two games and looking like a much improved player. However, the Jets defensive brain trust thought it better to match up their second-best cornerback (Morris Claiborne) on the Texans’ top receiver in DeAndre Hopkins. The Result? Hopkins finished with 170 yards and a touchdown. Jamal Adams played with high intensity as usual, picking up a handful of tackles and a sack on third down that forced a Texans field goal. Coaching: D This one isn’t an “F” because we saw the staff use Robby Anderson on a wider assortment of routes while allowing Sam Darnold to spread the ball around, completing passes to nine different receivers. In the end however, the defense faltered and gave away the lead that the offense handed them with five minutes remaining in the game. And again, Todd Bowles’ defense has no answer for a one-dimensional offense with just one real threat to defend in Hopkins.

  3. Last week, Sam Darnold led the Jets in his first career 4th quarter comeback against the Bills, to break the Jets six game losing streak. It was also Sam Darnold’s first game back, and he energized the team, breathing life into a very stagnant offense. His scrambling throw to find Robby Anderson in the end zone to tie the game showed Jets fans what he excelled at when with USC. Hopefully, there will be much more of that to come. There is is still a lot of work to do in the offseason, but it looks like the Jets may have finally found the most important piece that has eluded them for half a century. Jeremiah Attaochu is still in concussion protocol and will not play Saturday. He has flashed at times lining up as a defensive end in blitzing situations, but he has only played limited snaps and only has 2 sacks on the season. With the Jets having no real edge rushing presence and only one player with over 5 sacks on the season (Jordan Jenkins with 6, next highest is Brandon Copeland with 4), not having Attaochu does hurt the Jets ability to get after the QB. Isaiah Crowell has been placed on IR. 2nd year player Elijah McGuire since coming back from a broken foot has played well, and had his best game of the season last week with Crowell out, rushing for 60 yards and the game winning touchdown on 4th and goal. Since Crowell ran for a Jet record 219 yards in week 5, he hasn’t broken 100 yards since. This is a good opportunity for McGuire as he will be the featured back and hopefully continues to impress. Trenton Cannon would be the backup, but he is questionable with a toe injury. De’angelo Henderson has been promoted from the practice squad. Quincy Enunwa has re-injured his ankle and hasn’t practiced all week so he is out as well. Robby Anderson was the star receiver of last weeks game though, catching the game tying touchdown on Sam Darnold’s crazy dash throw. Anderson has been full go all week, so he will be Darnold’s main target with Jermaine Kearse and Chris Herndon. Both Jordan Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson didn’t practice Tuesday or Wednesday, but were limited Thursday, so both are questionable. Johnson has a foot injury and Jenkins is shoulder/ankle. Jenkins leads the Jets in sacks this season with 6, so if he doesn’t play that will be a massive blow to the defensive front. Brandon Copeland is second on the team with 4 sacks, and undrafted rookie Frankie Luvu has really come on in the last few weeks, so both will get increased time if Jenkins doesn’t play. If Johnson doesn’t play, Darryl Roberts will fill in for him again like he did earlier in the season when he played very well. If Roberts plays corner, Terrance Brooks or Rontez Miles will play free safety. Kevin Pierre-Louis played extended snaps for the first time last week, and he had a great game, totaling 4 tackles, 1 sack, 2 QB hits, and a great pass breakup in the end zone. He was limited all week so he should play, and it will be good to see if he can keep up his production from last week. If he doesn’t play, Neville Hewitt will play more in his stead.

    Crowell to IR - Out for Season

    The NY Jets have placed Isaiah Crowell on I.R. and filled his roster spot by promoting De’Angelo Henderson to the active roster. The move ends the season for Crowell who finishes with 685 rushing yards. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry on the season, but that number is inflated because he had 219 yards rushing against the Broncos. The Jets offense as a whole has struggled with consistency this season and Crowell only surpassed 50 yards rushing in three games this season (Lions, Broncos & Titans). Jets placing RB Isaiah Crowell on IR, per source. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 14, 2018 We've activated RB De'Angelo Henderson and placed RB Isaiah Crowell on IR. https://t.co/cfe7JCokAe pic.twitter.com/upgimyhaQf — New York Jets (@nyjets) December 14, 2018 Henderson has spent the majority of the 2018 campaign on the Jets’ practice squad and was activated to the 53-man roster for the team’s Week 8 matchup against the Bears. The second-year pro was released the following week and re-signed to the practice squad. A sixth-round pick of the Broncos in the 2017 draft, the 5’7”, 208-pound Henderson appeared in five games last season for Denver and had nine touches including one scoring reception. The Coastal Carolina product played in 50 games for the Chanticleers and rushed for 4,635 yards and 58 touchdowns. Henderson also recorded 97 receptions for 921 yards and six scores.

  6. I love being right as much as I love winning. Those of you who have been following for the last few weeks are likely to have made a few bucks off of my predictions. And we will try to keep the wins rolling in … but Saturday NFL football kind of freaks me out. It’s just not right. Unnatural at best. Mid-December Saturday’s are for mediocre college bowl games, not NFL. Now that I got that off my chest, there are two Saturday games this weekend and the Jets get the 4:30 slot when they host the Texans. Despite the Jets being at home and coming off a win, they have been listed between six and six-and-a-half point underdogs. Most of the sportsbooks are offering similar juice so it’s a pick your poison kind of situation. You can check this Bovada Review to help you make a decision on where you want to bet. Sloppy Saturday The Texans started off rough this year. They lost three straight and people had serious questions about the team’s direction in 2018. Then, it all turned around and they won nine straight. But the Colts got their revenge from their three-point OT loss earlier this season with a field goal win of their own. Now the Texans have to hit the road and come play in the cold, wet, sloppy New Jersey in December conditions. We saw last week that the Texans are beatable when you take the ground game away. Piggy-backing on that thought, we can be sure that Todd Bowles and Kacy Rodgers will be pouring over the Colts tape and try to emulate how the Colts defense constantly pressured Deshaun Watson and almost completely shut down their running attack. The field has a high likelihood of being sloppy. But I’m not sure if this helps or hurts Gang Green’s cause. If it is still raining will the Texans avoid tossing the ball and stick to the ground game, slowing wear the Jets’ D down? Or will Deshaun Watson, Lamar Miller, and Alfred Blue not be able to find enough footing (slipping) to avoid tackles? If the Jets are to win, they are going to have to beat Houston through the air. But it could be really crummy weather. Then, there is the fact that the Texans have the No. 4 defense in the league and they are used to playing in a climate-controlled environment. This all leads me to look at the total once more. The Total opened up at 42.5 but is already down to 41.5 at most shops and even 41 at a few. I am definitely leaning UNDER and I would hate to wait and miss out on a higher number, but I feel like we should wait and keep an eye on the weather forecast. The Home Offense vs. Road Offense is another interesting thing to consider. The Jets are now scoring 21.33 points per game in East Rutherford. The Texans are scoring 22.67. So, our total is already busted without even looking at the fact that the Jets have dropped 29.17 points per game at home on average. We should expect the Jets to sell out to shut down the run and force the Texans to pass the ball. The Texans are not used to playing on a chilled, damp field. So, the Jet’s can keep this one close if they play like they did last week. They got ten hits on the Bill’s Josh Allen last weekend so if they can get the same kind of penetration against Houston, they can keep it close and even have a shot to win. The Prediction I don’t quite trust the total. I think the field conditions will be a little better than expected. Instead, I am going to wait and watch the point spread. If the number stays at 6.5 I’ll buy to up to 7. If the number move backward to 7, I might buy to 7.5. That way if the line is at 6.5 and the Jets lose by a touchdown, we’ll get a push. If the line goes back to 7 and we buy 7.5 we get a win. The post Week 15 Jets Pick: Mild for Jets, Chilly & Wet for Texans appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

  7. The Jets upset the Buffalo Bills 27-23 on Sunday which was a good thing for Sam Darnold and company. They overcame an early deficit and Sam Darnold had several “firsts”. He played in the cold and won. He engineered a 4th quarter comeback. It was also Darnold’s first win over an AFC East opponent. Apparently not everyone was thrilled with the win. A loss would have given the Jets the number one overall pick in the draft with three weeks to go. We know that those who took the Jets in online NFL betting ended up pretty happy with the outcome. Was the win worth it? We understand the frustration but only to a degree. This season has gone poorly, but the season is still and has always been about Sam Darnold. How can you not be happy about everything that happened last Sunday. This is a game that Darnold had no business winning. A 21 year old risky coming back on the road after a month layoff. Draft picks are less important than the continued development of the rookie quarterback who made some fantastic throws on Sunday. How about the big scramble on the touchdown pass? Or Robby Anderson’s big day? Darron Lee was also suspended last week. We discuss all this and more on this week’s episode of JetNation Radio.

  8. The NFL announced some changes to the Rooney rule aimed at strengthen diversity in the coaching ranks. From the NFL press release it says there will be more opportunities for diverse candidates to be considered for head coaching and front office management positions. At the special league meeting in Dallas today, the NFL’s workplace diversity committee presented modifications to strengthen and enhance the effectiveness of the NFL’s Rooney Rule. The coaching changes made each offseason certainly have a big impact on betting on NFL games. These policy enhancements are part of the League’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion. “Since the inception of the Rooney Rule, we have seen the rule adopted across business sectors and considered an industry best practice to increase diversity,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “The policy updates made today will bolster the current Rooney Rule requirements and are intended to create additional opportunities for diverse candidates to be identified, interviewed, and ultimately hired when a vacancy becomes available.” The enhancements to strengthen the Rooney Rule include: Clubs must interview at least one diverse candidate from the Career Development Advisory Panel list or a diverse candidate not currently employed by the club; Clubs must continue best practice recommendation of considering multiple diverse candidates; Clubs must maintain complete records and furnish to the league upon Commissioner’s request; and If final decision-maker is involved in the beginning, he/she must be involved through the conclusion of the process. The committee also endorsed strong accountability measures in the event clubs fail to comply or seek to evade procedures outlined in the Rooney Rule. ​ The Rooney Rule changes were developed in consultation with several independent groups including The Fritz Pollard Alliance, which advocates for diversity and job equality in the league. Adopted in 2003, the Rooney Rule is an NFL policy requiring every team with a head coaching vacancy to interview at least one or more diverse candidates. In 2009, the Rooney Rule was expanded to include general manager jobs and equivalent front office positions. The Rooney Rule is named after the late former Pittsburgh Steelers owner and chairman of the league’s diversity committee, Dan Rooney. The NFL’s Workplace Diversity Committee is comprised of owners and executive personnel to include: Chair, Katie Blackburn (Cincinnati Bengals); Michael Bidwill (Arizona Cardinals); Arthur Blank (Atlanta Falcons); E. Javier Loya (Houston Texans); John Mara (New York Giants); George H. McCaskey (Chicago Bears); Art Rooney II (Pittsburgh Steelers); and Kevin Warren (Minnesota Vikings). Members of the Career Development Advisory Panel are comprised of former football coaches, executives, and players. They are: John Madden; Charley Casserly; Dick Daniels; James “Shack” Harris; Bill Cowher; Bruce Arians; and Jimmy Raye III.

  9. Given the fact that the Jets had been riding a six-game losing streak that included some of the most embarrassing and gut wrenching losses in team history, it’s been quite some time since we gave out any “game balls”. Well, after an impressive come from behind win against the Bills yesterday, it’s time to offer some kudos to the team’s top performers. QB Sam Darnold: This one is a no-brainer. The California kid was counted out before this one even kicked off. Playing in frigid temperatures, on the road against the NFL’s top pass defense would be too much for Darnold to overcome, right? Not really. The kid made some of his best plays as a pro and overcame a big deficit early on. Easily Darnold’s most impressive game of the season when all factors are taken in to account. Offensive Line: As per usual, the run blocking was sub par, but despite a handful of pressures, Darnold wasn’t sacked once by the Bills and often had plenty of time to make his reads despite facing a solid defense. As of last week, the Jets offensive line was ranked 12th in the NFL by pro football focus in pass block efficiency. Will this game bump them up to the top 10? WR Robby Anderson: Here’s to hoping that Sam Darnold begins to understand the value of getting Anderson involved in the game plan, because when Robby catches the football, life is good for Darnold and the Jets. Correcting an earlier tweet… Jets 2108 PPG when Robby Anderson scores a TD: 36 Jets 2018 PPG when Robby Anderson doesn't score: 17.6 Jets 2018 Record when Robby Anderson scores a TD: 3-0 Jets 2018 record when Robby Anderson doesn't score: 1-9 — Glenn Naughton (@AceFan23) December 10, 2018 Anderson made a pair of very good catches on his lone touchdown of the game and then again later down the right sideline with tight coverage on a perfect ball from Darnold. ILB Kevin Pierre-Louis and Neville Hewitt: We spent a lot of time during training camp praising the depth the Jets had put together at inside linebacker and yesterday they got a chance to show it. With Darron Lee serviing a four-game suspension, Pierre-Louis and Hewitt combined for 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in Lee’s place. S Jamal Adams: Adams was stellar in coverage once again, recovered a fumble early on and looked to have shared a QB sack later in the game when he was the second defender to wrap up Josh Allen, but the scorers don’t seem to have seen it that way. RB Elijah McGuire: Every time Eli McGuire gets the ball, it feels as if one of two things happen. The first being a complete breakdown on the O-line, leading to McGuire being hit at or behind the line of scrimmage before he has a chance to get going. The other being the O-line doing even just a decent job up front, and McGuire finding a crease and making a defender miss to gain positive yards. With even just slightly better blocking, McGuire could be a very good player who can run, block and catch. First game winning TD of his career had to be a good feeling. CB Trumaine Johnson: Don’t look now, Jets fans, but Johnson has now strung together three consecutive strong performances after getting beat early and often for much of the year. Johnson quietly did a nice job against the Patriots three weeks ago, then had himself a pick-six last week before intercepting two passes yesterday. Hopefully a sign of what’s to come next year. DL Leonard Williams: Not a big day on the stat sheet for Williams, but unlike previous weeks, this one could be chalked up to playing one of the more athletic QB’s in the NFL. Against most teams, Williams likely picks up a couple of sacks yesterday, but as it turned out, he got several pressures as the Jets front seven had Allen on the run throughout the day.

  10. Here are some post game player notes courtesy of the NY Jets. NEW YORK JETS 27, BUFFALO BILLS 23 New Era Field – December 9, 2018, 1:00 p.m. Fourth-Quarter Comeback: Early In the fourth quarter down 13-20, QB Sam Darnold connected with WR Robby Anderson on a seven-yard pass to tie the game at 20-20. The touchdown marks Anderson’s fourth touchdown of the season and the 12th touchdown for the rookie quarterback this year, his first since Week Eight after missing the last three games due to injury. With 2:31 left in the game, Darnold led a 61-yard drive capped off by a one-yard touchdown run by RB Elijah McGuire to take a 27-23 lead over BUF. The touchdown was the first of the year for McGuire after missing the first eight games due to injury. On the drive, Darnold completed 3-of-5 passes for 43 yards, including a 37-yard pass to WR Robby Anderson to put the Jets at the BUF five-yard line and set up the game-winning touchdown. Fourth-Down Score: Trailing by three and facing fourth-and-goal from the BUF 1, the Jets opted against the game-tying field goal attempt and scored after RB Elijah McGuire found the end zone. The score marked the first game-winning touchdown for the Jets on fourth down in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter since 1998 when QB Vinny Testaverde ran one in from five yards out with 0:27 seconds remaining vs. SEA (12/06/98) for the 32-21 win. Takeaways: In the first quarter, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis poked the ball loose from QB Josh Allen, marking the first forced fumble of his career. The loose ball was then recovered by S Jamal Adams and returned five yards. The fumble recovery was the third of Adams’ career and his first this season. Late in the second, CB Trumaine Johnson picked off QB Josh Allen, recording his third interception of the season. Johnson would then seal the game with his interception of Allen with 0:59 second remaining in the fourth quarter. S Jamal Adams: S Jamal Adams finished the game with 11 tackles, bringing his season total to 88 tackles (According to Radar360). Adams now ranks third in tackles among safeties in the NFL. He also added one sack, one forced fumble and one quarterback hit in the contest. For the season, Adams has recorded 2.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, 12 passes defensed, one interception, eight tackles for loss and five quarterback hits. DL Henry Anderson: With 0:04 seconds left in the first half, DL Henry Anderson prevented a score, blocking a Stephen Hauschka field goal. Anderson has now blocked kicks in consecutive weeks after blocking an extra point last week at TEN (12/2). The last time a Jet blocked a kick in consecutive games was in 1997, when S Corwin Brown blocked a punt at NE (09/14/97) and a field goal the next week against OAK (09/21/97). WR Robby Anderson: WR Robby Anderson, who finished the game with a team-high four receptions for 76 yards provided key plays on a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown drives. On the Jets 11-play, 85-yard drive that opened the quarter, Anderson pulled in his team-leading fourth touchdown catch after he was found by a scrambling Sam Darnold for a seven-yard catch. On the game-winning drive, Anderson hauled in a 37-yard pass to set the team up with first and goal from the five. RB Trenton Cannon: Following an 86-yard kickoff return by Andre Roberts, RB Trenton Cannon recorded his first professional touchdown on a four-yard run during the second quarter. LB Neville Hewitt: LB Neville Hewitt made his first start since 2016. He entered the game as the Jets leading special teams tackler (11), but made a big impact on defense, recording seven tackles (second-most of the team), one half-sack and a quarterback hit in the contest. CB Trumaine Johnson: CB Trumaine Johnson picked off QB Josh Allen twice in the win, recording his third and fourth interceptions on the season, his total now ranking second in the league among cornerbacks. The game was also only the second time in Johnson’s seven-year career that he has posted two interceptions in a game, the first time coming in Week 13 of 2014 when he intercepted Derek Carr and Matt Schaub in the win against OAK (11/30/14). Johnson has now recorded 22 interceptions since entering the league in 2012, ranking him second among all active corners in the NFL, only behind CB Richard Sherman. RB Elijah McGuire: RB Elijah McGuire gained 60 yards on a single-game career high 17 carries, the most of any running back in the game. McGuire recorded a 34-yard carry, the game’s longest run, shortly before the end of the third quarter on a drive that would ultimately tie the game at 20. For McGuire, the carry represented his longest this season and the second-longest of his career. McGuire would later score from one-yard out with 0:59 second remaining in the game, helping the Jets to their 27-23 win. It was his first touchdown this season and the second of his career. WR Andre Roberts: Late in the first, WR Andre Roberts fielded a kickoff and returned it 51 yards to the Buffalo 46-yard line. The return marks the fourth kickoff return of 40+ yards for Roberts this season, the most of any returner in the NFL. In the second quarter, Roberts took back his next kickoff return 86 yards to set up the Jets offense inside the 20-yard line, leading to the Jets first touchdown of the day. The return marks the longest of the season for Roberts and the second-longest of his career. Among return specialists in the NFL, Roberts’ eight returns of 40+ yards (three punt, five kickoff) this season leads the league, and no other player has more than three. Additionally, Roberts is third among active, qualified players in kick return average this season with 27.1 yards per return. Series: BUF currently leads the series 61-55 (1-0 postseason).

  12. The Jets pulled off an improbable comeback win against the Buffalo Bills on the road in a game that saw quarterback Sam Darnold engineer his first ever game-winning drive in a 27-23 win, bringing an end to their six-game losing streak and bringing their record to 4-9 on the season. How’d they grade out? Let’s take a look. Quarterback: B+ It wasn’t an incredible statistical day for Sam Darnold as he went 16-24 for 170 yards to go along with a touchdown and an interception, but that doesn’t come close to telling the whole story. Darnold made some phenomenal throws in big spots with temps in the teens against one of the best defenses in the NFL after trailing big early on. Running Backs: B Again, the stats weren’t incredible (24 carries for 68 yards), but there wasn’t much running room provided by the offensive line. However, when there was room, Eli McGuire took advantage of it as both he and Trenton Cannon scored touchdowns with McGuire’s being the game winner. Wide Receivers: C- Robby Anderson hauled in Darnold’s only touchdown pass and had a huge grab down the right sideline on the Jets’ game winning drive as he finished the day with 4 catches for 76 yards. Outside of that, it was a quiet day for the receivers as the rest of the group combined for just five receptions for 38 yards. Tight Ends: D Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett each caught one pass for a total of only 27 yards. Offensive Line: C- Darnold was kept clean against one of the top defenses in the league which was very impressive, but the run blocking was poor once again. Defensive Line: B The Jets D-line pressured Josh Allen consistently while shutting down Chris Ivory on the ground (12 carries, 42 yards). They did allow Allen to rush for 101 yards, but much of that was a product of Allen reading Gang Green’s man coverage and taking off when Jets linebackers had their backs to him. Linebackers: B Jets Linebackers combined for 2.5 sacks as Brandon Copeland (1), Kevin Pierre-Louis (1) and Neville Hewitt (.5) made the stat sheet. Pierre-Louis had a strip sack on a play that saw Jamal Adams recover a fumble and the ‘backers also played a big role in limiting Ivory to just 42 yards. Secondary: B+ Two more interceptions for Trumaine Johnson, including a game clincher on the Bills’ final offensive play of the day. Jamal Adams recovered a fumble and Darryl Roberts had a strong day at safety. In all, the Jets secondary held the Bills offense to just 206 yards and no touchdowns. Special Teams: A- Another stellar day for Brant Boyer’s unit as Henry Anderson blocked a field goal and Andre Roberts had a season-long 86-yard punt return. Coaching: C The Jets kept the handcuffs on Sam Darnold for much of the day but still did enough to get the win. Their inability to figure out a way to keep Josh Allen under 100 yards on the ground is also alarming. Outcome aside, this staff has three games left before getting their walking papers.

  13. In a disappointing and lost season for both the Jets and the Bills, today’s game has little meaning. The Jets will be looking for revenge after their matchup earlier this season may be remembered as one of the ugliest and most embarrassing losses in Jets history as they got blown out by a sub par team led by a quarterback who hadn’t thrown an NFL pass in 2 years. All that said, lets take a look at who could step up in injured players absences’ this week. WR Robby Anderson was limited in practice Thursday and Friday so he is questionable. Without him, the Jets have been non existent on deep ball throws and it has taken an entire dynamic out of the offense. If Anderson can’t go, it could mean more targets for Jermaine Kearse who hasn’t built as much of a rapport with Sam Darnold as fans had hoped. RB Isaiah Crowell did not practice Wednesday and Thursday, and was limited on Friday so he is listed as questionable as well, but it feels there is less of a chance he plays. Elijah McGuire would get the majority of carries with Trenton Cannon mixing in if Crowell doesn’t play. It would be nice if McGuire could be more productive the next few weeks, showing he could be a nice #2 compliment to lets say, Le’Veon Bell… How do you like this for an answer? pic.twitter.com/a5hh6lORVJ — JetNation.com (@JetNation) December 6, 2018 TE Jordan Leggett was limited all week and is questionable, but he has been a non-factor all season so he will only be missed on special teams. CB Buster Skrine was a full participant Wednesday and Thursday, but was limited Friday so he is also questionable. If he doesn’t play, Parry Nickerson would get slot duties which would be nice in a lost season to, you know, see if your young players have it or not. It would actually be good if Skrine doesn’t play, considering how Todd Bowles has little interest in getting a look at some of his young players.

  15. The news doesn’t seem to get any better these days for the New York Jets. Darron Lee received a four game suspension from the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy. With four games left on the Jets schedule this suspension ends his season. More bad news for the #Jets: LB Darron Lee is suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 7, 2018 Also, a player must test positive at least three times (and sometimes more) in the NFL’s substance abuse program, in order to get hit with a four-game suspension, as Darron Lee was. https://t.co/XRgx05P7Zs — Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) December 7, 2018 The former first round pick out of Ohio State just completed his 3rd year in the NFL. He is under contract for next season and the Jets do have a 5th year option on Lee for 2020. From Daryl Slater on NJ.com: Teams generally pick up the fifth-year option for most first-round picks, since it is a relatively low-risk move. But Lee might have hurt his chances with this suspension. Plus, it’s not like he’s a great player. The entire value of Lee’s four-year rookie contract ($10.221 million) was fully guaranteed. But now, this suspension triggers void language in the deal. So Lee’s salary for 2019 ($1.843 million) is no longer guaranteed, which could let the Jets cut Lee. If he remains with them next season, his salary cap figure would be $3.252 million — his salary plus his prorated signing bonus. Lee’s prorated signing bonus cap hit for 2019 is $1.408 million. And the Jets are stuck with most (if not all) of that figure as a dead money cap hit if they cut Lee, regardless of this suspension.
