The Jets lost tonight on a field goal as time expired in a performance which may have raised more questions than it answered.
Teddy Bridgewater led the Jets back from a 12-3 deficit to take the lead with under two minutes to go, but the Jets allowed a drive to set up the game-winning field goal. Bridgewater played well and threw the game's only touchdown to Charone Peake, but also had an interception.
In his first career start, Sam Darnold acquitted himself pretty well as the two quarterbacks played a half each, but most of his throws were safe and he only managed to put three points on the board. Darnold also had a pass intercepted as he tried to force one into traffic on fourth down.
There was apparently only one injury to report, as Jeremy Clark pulled his hamstring. That's a blow for a player who hasn't been on the field much since being drafted.
Defensively, the Jets played some bend-but-not-break as they held Washington to field goals on each of their four red zone trips, but they were outplayed for most of the game as they need to clean up their zone defense and some of their run fits. More on that tomorrow, though, as we'll be here all day with in-depth analysis.
