The Jets looked much like they have done for much of the season in the first half, scoring early put then falling apart and trailing 24-6 at halftime. However, they unexpectedly made a game of it in the second half and the Chargers had to stop a late drive to hang on for the win.
Joe Flacco had a terrible first half, barely even looking for his receivers as the Jets had 20 passing yards and their short-handed secondary was picked apart by the rookie Justin Herbert. Flacco also threw an embarrassingly soft pick-six. However, he got into a decent rhythm in the second half and they Jets piled up the yards and points with the embattled Adam Gase back in charge of the playcalling.
The Jets were particularly banged up at the tackle position in this game which didn't help their comeback effort much, but Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims and even Chris Herndon all made big plays to get the Jets back into it.
Otherwise, Quinnen Williams had another impactful game and the Jets' running game looked pretty good again. Since this is easily the team with the worst record remaining on the Jets' schedule, it's still difficult to see where a win is coming from.
