TOJ Tweet Summary Week 12 – Jets vs. Panthers

Daniel Essien with a #JetsTwitter Summary on the New York Jets week 12 loss to the Carolina Panthers…

We’re back from the bye. The Jets hosted the Carolina Panthers in week 11. Coming off a week 10 loss to the Bucs, the Jets were looking for a good response at home. Once again, it was a collection of highs and lows ultimately culminating with a familiar finish. #JetsTwitter leads us through this one as usual.

1st Half

Jets matched the Panthers early on as both teams put together long drives that ended with field goals on their first drives. The Jets had a good chance for the lead, though.

Jets defense turned things up on the next drive, sacking Cam Newton twice and forcing a punt.

Jets offense followed that up with nothing. The Panthers got the ball back and then put another long drive together, this time ending with a Cam Newton TD run.

The Jets offense continued surrounding a Panthers punt with two of their own. Then the Panthers added a field goal to make it 12-3.

After both teams traded punts, the Jets offense finally got going again and put together a solid drive ending with an incredible Robby Anderson TD catch in double coverage to make a 12-10 game right before the half.

Chiiiill…

2nd Half

To start the second half, both teams started slowly trading a pair of punts each. Then another moment of magic as McCown and Anderson connected again…

Robby is young and was happy so inevitably something he did made some old guy got salty.

When you haven’t been watching all season…

The joy didn’t last long, though, as the Panthers took the lead right back from the Jets with a 9 play scoring drive that ended with a Jonathan Stewart touchdown run.

The Jets though responded well with a nice drive that took the ball all the way down to the one yard line. Then unbelievably this happened again…

Then after a Panthers punt. The Jets offense go the ball back and McCown looked up and saw it was the 4th quarter so…cue cascading sadness…

Then after the Jets got the ball back and the offense went three and out again…

Jets were able to score on their next drive with a touchdown pass from McCown to Jermaine Kearse to make it 32-27. But, on the ensuing Panthers drive, the game basically ended on a senseless roughing the passer penalty committed on a third down stop where the Jets couldn’t gotten the ball back with a chance to win.

The Panthers added a field goal and the Jets couldn’t make anything happen with 21 seconds and 75 yards to go. The Jets took the loss, moving their record to 4-7.
