Andrew Luck Nearly Perfect as Colts Crush Jets 41-10

Indianapolis Colts v New York Jets

Andrew Luck was nearly perfect in his return from a concussion, throwing for four touchdowns, three to Dwayne Allen, in the Indianapolis Colts’ 41-10 romp Monday night past the inept New York Jets.

Not that Luck had to work very hard against the hosts, who were booed by a much-less-than-filled MetLife Stadium almost from the outset.

Luck missed last week’s loss to Pittsburgh, cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol on the weekend, and came back in style with a prime-time performance. He lifted Indianapolis (6-6) into a tie for the lead in the AFC South with Tennessee and Houston.

Allen and T.Y. Hilton were his main targets as he went 22 of 28 for 278 yards, and they received little opposition from the Jets (3-9).

Darrelle Revis Done? Jets CB Reportedly “Doesn’t Want to Play Anymore”

Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis announced this summer that he was “going to play until the wheels fall off.”

The Jets cornerback’s decline is due, in part, to his questionable drive and lack of commitment and discipline to maintain his body.

“He’s done,” a Revis confidant told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “If he had his way, he’d be done right now. He doesn’t want to play anymore. He’s made a lot of money.”

Although it’s impossible to get inside Revis’ head, people close to him sense that the guy, who once ate, slept and breathed football is gone forever, replaced by this sad version.

While he can’t say for certain what Revis is thinking, the Revis confidant put the cornerback’s season this way: “He tanked it.”

Revis has waxed poetic about his love for this franchise. He wanted to be a “Jet for life.” He was supposedly downright giddy about “coming home” after two seasons in Tampa and New England.

The Jets will have to make a decision on Revis’ future by the second day of the 2017 league year (March) when a non-guaranteed $2 million roster bonus is due.

Revis has suggested that he’s amenable to moving to safety in the future, but there’s no guarantee that the Jets would want to pay him $6 million to play a new position and he’d actually be a good safety given that he’s repeatedly shied away from contact this season.

Jets Can’t Close Out; Fall to Brady and Patriots 22-17 to Drop to 3-8

New England Patriots v New York Jets

Tom Brady was hobbled, yet efficient as ever with the game on the line and time on the clock.

Playing with an ailing knee, Brady tied Peyton Manning for most wins by a quarterback in NFL history, getting his 200th by throwing a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell with 1:56 left, leading the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

It was the 50th win for Brady after facing a fourth-quarter deficit or tie.

“The quarterback’s job is to win,” coach Bill Belichick said. “He’s won a lot. That’s good. I’m glad he’s our quarterback.”

Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led a solid drive by completing six passes. After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots (9-2) ahead.

“We didn’t play as well as we wanted to,” Brady said, “but we made the plays when we needed to.”

Where Will The Jets Finish After Remodelling Their Roster From The 2015 Season?

New England Patriots v New York Jets

The New York Jets are now hallway through their 16 games of the regular NFL season. From the eight games they have a record of three wins and five losses. This isn’t as good compared to their 5-3 record at the same stage last season, and it wouldn’t be surprising for Jets fans to be a little disheartened at the time being. Last season, they finished seventh in the AFC Conference, one place outside the Wild Card spots. Coach, Todd Bowles would have been hoping for a big improvement this season, but as they currently sit in 12th place, they are quite a way off with much work still to do.

Current Form

The Jets hit a particularly bad patch of form, losing four games in a row through games 3-6. The games lost against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals were particularly bad, with the Jets scoring only three points on each occasion. Their poor form has been the focus of many NFL blogs, with many fans bringing up the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick had only thrown 3 for 14 for 30 yards in the first half against the Cleveland Browns. Despite the criticism, the Jets did manage to find the performance they needed, scoring 24 points in the second half to win the game 31-28. This result came hot on the heels of a 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens. With two wins on the bounce, it would be great if this led the way to a change in form.

Quarterback

At the start of the season, Jets players and fans alike had genuine aspirations of building on the ten wins from last season and reaching the playoffs. Quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick has accepted that he deserves most of the blame as he hasn’t been playing at his best, and sadly, a team can only perform as well as their best QB. Despite his poor form, Fitzpatrick has played every game with has left a number of fans outraged. Even Joe Namath (Jets legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer) has been calling for Bryce Petty to take Fitzpatrick’s place. Petty has been with Jets since 2015 and never taken a snap in the NFL, if he was given a chance, what’s the worst that could happen?

Up Next

Miami Dolphins are the next opponents for the Jet who have played one game less due to their bye week, the Jets get theirs in week 11. The Dolphins defeated the Buffalo Bills in week 7 (only their third of the season) and it was recently announced that their game next season against the New Orleans Saints will take place at Wembley Stadium as part of the annual International Series. Then they face a visit from the Los Angeles Rams who are in a similar dire straits with a 3-4 record, and they’ve also just had their bye week. Competition for the Wild Card spots is currently very tight, and two big wins for the Jets could put them straight back in the playoff picture.

Jets Lose Battle of Field Goals to Rams 9-6 To Drop to 3-7

Los Angeles Rams v New York Jets

Alec Ogletree intercepted Bryce Petty with just under 2 minutes left, lifting the Rams to a 9-6 victory over the Jets in a snoozer Sunday.

Petty made his first NFL start in place of an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick, but couldn’t get much going against the Rams defense.

After getting the ball with 2:55 remaining and down by three, Petty tried to lead the Jets (3-7) down the field. But on second-and-7 from the 42, Petty’s pass to Quincy Enunwa was picked off by Ogletree and Enunwa tried to wrestle it away from the linebacker to no avail.

Greg Zuerlein kicked three field goals, including a go-ahead 34-yarder with 6:52 left, helping the Rams (4-5) snap a four-game losing streak and avoid their first five-game skid since weeks 9-13 last season.

Jets Stumble in Miami; Fall to 3-6 After 27-23 Loss to Dolphins

New York Jets v Miami Dolphins

Rookie returner Kenyan Drake was delighted to find himself at the bottom of a pile of players, because they were teammates in the end zone.

Drake caused the celebration when he scored untouched on a 96-yard kickoff return with 5:15 left Sunday, the final swing in a seesaw game that helped the Dolphins beat the New York Jets, 27-23.

Jay Ajayi
came up short in his bid to become the first NFL rusher to have three consecutive 200-yard games, but he managed 111 yards and helped to run out the clock after the Dolphins came from behind for the third time.

A botched Dolphins punt led to a touchdown that put New York ahead 23-20. The Jets pinned Miami’s Jakeem Grant deep on the ensuing kickoff, but Antonio Allen was flagged for offside.

On the re-kick, the weary coverage team found itself chasing a fresh Drake , Grant’s backup. He sped past the final Jet — kicker Nick Folk — into the clear.
