Thoughts on the Jets' 3 Primetime games in 2019

Recommended Posts

The Jets are about to play their third and final primetime game of 2019, and these can't end soon enough!  A few stats and thoughts...

1. The Jets last TNF game was a loss on the road to the Browns in 2018 in Week 3 by a score of 21-17, the game that launched Mayfield into the starting QB spot after Tyrod Taylor left injured.  Their last victory was over the Bills in 2017 by a score of 34-21 at home in Week 9.

2. This will be the Jets' second primetime matchup intended to be between Quarterbacks taken in Round 1 of the 2018 Draft.  The scheduling was obviously a point of emphasis for the NFL and putting Darnold-Mayfield and Darnold-Jackson matchups on the primetime schedule probably seemed like a great idea back last March.  Obviously, Darnold missed the Week 2 game with Mono this year.

3. In two games so far the Jets have scored a grand total of 3 points.

4. I'm not sure what the record is for average margin of defeat or fewest points scored by a team playing 3 primetime games in a season but the Jets are currently looking at 56 Points Allowed and 3 Points Scored....with the Ravens looking add to the 53 point difference and the 26.5 Point average margin of defeat.

5. May God have mercy on the Jets tonight.

of course you're probably right

but It's hard to talk about team stats when it's the Luke Falk show

It's going to be a bloodbath tonight and that's ok.  We might lose 41-3 but if Darnold doesnt poop himself, I think I'll be happy.

 Of course, but he started one of those games, Darnold started the other.

Tonight is a really big test for a team that has won 4 out of their past 5 games against inferior opponents. Disappointing that we won’t have Jamal Adams as he typically gets up for these kinds of big games.

There are no moral victories but I would be impressed if the Jets somehow find a way to keep this game competitive until the end of the 3rd quarter.  At least try to be within striking distance, something like down by 10 points but having the ball to start the 4th quarter. Try not to be down by 3 touchdowns!

You know it's bad when you're biggest hope for the game is that the Jets avoid humiliating the fanbase on prime time television again.  

I don't know what our record is in primetime the last 10-15 years, but it must be abysmal.

Even if it’s just a single steak we have to consider that a positive step.

to look at this matchup from the other side: 

The Ravens have been playing big game after big game 

At Los Angeles, vs SF, At Buffalo. These are like heavyweight fights and maybe they mike tyson'ed the Rams but the other two were 12 round battles and all of these games had a price 

They lost their center Matt Skura for the year vs LA and it's limited their offense last 2 games 

Starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley is doubtful in the concussion protocol. Mark andrews their TE is also banged up  

Lamar Jackson will play but practice was closed to the media and he's been limping noticeably all week. 

it's possible, as almost 17 point favorites at home, thinking this Jets team sucks and they can not show up quite as hard 

The Ravens are not good covering as double digit favorites and in fact they've only covered 2 of their last 4 games  

now to be clear Im not saying the Jets win just saying there is an outcome where they don't embarass us all for being fans

the ravens have blown out a lot of teams so losing big tonight isn't a huge deal, except for that it's again on national tv and the schedulers have no interest in having the jets on national tv against average teams they can beat.  this year it was pats, browns and ravens, and the browns game was intended to have mayfield and obj crap on the jets.

i agree with a lot of your points but the jets are really shorthanded.  the defense has been playing amazing with all the no names despite injuries and adams would definitely help stop lamar.  the offense doesn't have griffen or D. thomas and darnold will be running for his life throwing to new TEs and wrs yet again.  i just don't see how the offense will have enough juice to sustain drives to keep it respectable.

not a big deal in the sense that 1) it is expected, 2) half the teams baltimore has played they've blown out, and 3) jets' injuries are absurd

The only thing that gives me a tiny bit of hope is that the Jets have played well against the rush.  Now, a rushing QB is a different animal and they haven't faced anybody as good as Lamar.  In fact, I recall Josh Allen scampering for 12 yard runs in the second half of Week 1.  But, Gregg Williams will be on the spot to keep his rush defense alert and performing at a high level, and he faced Jackson last year when coaching Cleveland.  Unfortunately, that didn't turn out too well as Lamar carried 20 times for 90 yards.

I know, right?

It will hurt not having Jamal out there.  Probably would have spied Lamar quite a bit tonight.

I hope this means no more than 1 next year. I hate them- start too late.

Good news is- when they’re getting destroyed by mid second quarter I can go to bed normal time.

Can't believe we're going to give this a serious run for the money!
