The Jets cornerbacks featured in the Jets’ 27-10 season finale loss at the Buffalo Bills.
Josh Allen completed 53% of his throws with 45 shots averaging 5.3 yards/shot. The main reason is why Jet corners are kept in coverage forcing Allen to make difficult throws.
After going 10-0 down, the Jets’ defense tightened and forced the eight Bills to punish the following 10 properties. And it started with sticky cover from defensive defenders.
“It was just a matter of crouching down and doing our job, winning an argument, making it harder for the midfielder to throw as the ball went closer to our window and making the midfielder throw. accurate in windy conditions,” said coach Robert Saleh. “We felt that, because of the aggression associated with the way we performed today, it made him pitch perfectly. In these conditions it’s hard to do that, so really, really pumped up the defence. I think they played their absolute bucks. The final stats didn’t look like that, but if you just watched the ice, it was skiing hard. ”
Let’s start with the Jets’ No. 1 full-back, Bryce Hall. Against the Pay Lobby was targeted 12 times and only allowed three completions in 50 yards according to Next Generation Stats. And the average split ratio is 1.9. The league average for recipients is 2.9.
It’s good work from the second year corner. Hall was nearly defeated by Gabriel Davis in a protracted opening match late in the second half. But the pass fell out of bounds.
Sometimes luck is better than luck.
Brandin Echols is compared to Stefon Diggs throughout the game and sometimes follows him. Echols has done a solid job compared to a previous All-Pro receiver. Echols was targeted 11 times and allowed five receptions for 33 yards.
Nickel corner Michael Carter II made a couple of third stops with his coverage. Carter II ended with a pass break and forced to finish again – both on the third down. Carter II fell victim to the Bills when Dawson Knox finished tight in a 28-yard reception.
The most impressive stat is Allen for pitches that are three yards or less. He goes 14-eat-32 in 136 yards with one touchdown. It was a day off for Allen and the Jets full-back played a big part in it.
Is everything perfect? But they played well. Credit to the group.
No Elijah Moore, Corey Davis or Braxton Berrios. And Jamison Crowder re-injured his calf in the first half against the Bills. So, with limited throwing weapons, the attacking team needed to attack in a rush, but they only concentrated 48 yards with an average of 2.8 yards per shot.
Michael Carter leads with 19 yards on 9 runs.
True, the Jets’ line of attack did not come from the center of Connor McGovern and bypassed George Fant.
Running game is required for Zach Wilson. But without it, you don’t have a shot. And it shows as he goes 7-eaten 20 in 87 meters with one touchdown and is fired eight times.
