New York Jets Suffer Devastating 27-6 Loss to Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football
The Jets’ most recent defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football felt all too familiar for fans who have endured a tough season. As the team tries to remain in postseason contention, there are six trends that need reversing:
Injuries, particularly on the offensive line, have plagued the Jets this season. Despite being proactive in adding durable players to their roster, they’ve still been struck by injuries, affecting the offensive line’s performance.
Their offense has struggled to get off to a good start in games, consistently falling behind by double digits early on while failing to execute offensive plays effectively.
Red-zone failures have been a major downfall for the Jets, with the team ranking last in the NFL in red-zone-touchdown percentage and only scoring one touchdown in their past four games.
Third-down conversion percentage is another issue, with the Jets ranking last in the league once again and facing challenges in getting the critical yards needed to progress down the field.
Defensively, the Jets have had outstanding performances but still experience lapses, often early in games, that have cost them.
Lastly, penalties have become a problem for the Jets, impacting their ability to get off the field and stay competitive in games.
It’s clear that the Jets have a lot of work to do to turn their season around and deal with the issues that have been holding them back.
