Welp, that was ugly.
After absolutely dominating the Buffalo Bills ten days earlier, the Jets played terribly down in Tampa Bay against Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers, losing a poorly played football game 15-10. It was not easy to find three players who had a good game but let’s give this week’s three up/three down a shot.
CB Darryl Roberts – While flying a bit under the radar, Darryl Roberts has been a pretty solid player for the Jets in 2017. On Sunday, Roberts was able to grab a terrible pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick for an interception. A throw from Fitzpatrick that Jets fans know oh so well. If nothing else, Roberts has proven to be a serviceable player for the Jets going forward.
WR Robby Anderson – It seems like Anderson scores a touchdown every week. Late in the game on Sunday, Robby was once again able to get behind the secondary for a long touchdown to make the game seem a lot closer than it actually was. While his route running still needs some work, he runs the fly route as good as anyone in football.
WR Chad Hansen – While he only had three catches, Hansen was relatively successful in his first real NFL action. Hansen has good hands, and should see more playing time going forward with Kerley suspended.
QB Josh McCown – This was by far McCown’s worst game of the season. While his box score does not look bad, McCown was pretty awful on Sunday. The offensive line was not great, but McCown made poor reads all game long. with the Jets now 4-6, is his time as the starter running out?
RB Bilal Powell – With Matt Forte out, the Jets were not able to do much of anything against the Bucs defense. Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire combined for only 52-yards on the ground. Powell also lost a fumble after catching a pass around midfield. It was an ugly day for the Jets running backs.
DL Mo Wilkerson – Wilkerson finished the game with just one tackle. For a player as good as Wilkerson is, that is just unacceptable. It has been an up and down season for Wilkerson, who shows flashes of being the Pro-Bowler player he once was, but at other times is invisible on the field.
