TOJ Tweet Summary 2018, Week 8 – Jets vs. Bears

Dan Essien recaps the Jets week 8 matchup against the Chicago Bears with #JetsTwitter

The New York Jets went into week 8 looking to get back on track after the Minnesota Vikings handed them a loss at MetLife. The Jets flew to Chicago to try to take down the Bears and get back to .500. #JetsTwitter takes us through how it unfolded on Sunday.

Before we start, I won’t sugarcoat it. This game sucked. But the tweets, as usual, did not. Let’s get to it!

1st Half

On the Jets first drive…

This was a trend…

…the Jets punted and the Bears drove down the field but then missed a 40 yard field goal. Then on the next Jets drive…

…as one would assume, the Jets punted again after once again getting well behind the chains. Then on the Bears’ next drive…

It be like that sometimes…

Ralph was covering the Giants game at the same time. Give him a hug if you see him.

The Jets then went on their longest drive of the season and in the middle of it, GUESS WHAT…

It’s never gonna stop! It’s forever!

The Jets did eventually get points on this nearly 9 minute 14 play forever drive. They settled for a field goal to make it 7-3.
After that…it was literally all punts until halftime…yeah you heard right. SIX straight punts.

I don’t even want to put you through all of that. It’s not necessary. But one inevitable pre-halftime triggering of Jets fans of course took place.

Wait…sorry wrong tweet filter…okay got ’em

Wow. I’m surprised. But it seems like you were in the minority here, Jude…

They were 99.99999999999% gonna lose but I totally understand.

2nd Half

The Bears got the ball to start the second half and once again the Jets defense held up and forced a punt. The Jets got the ball hoping to finally get some meaningful traction on offense and…oh I know that music…

Don’t do this. I care about you all.

Jets defense cracked on the next Bears drive as they found the endzone on a 9 play 55 yard drive, capped off by a 4 yard touchdown pass to future Bears legend, Anthony Miller to make it 14-3.

That’s hurtful, Mike…

The Jets punted on their next drive, but at least cleaned up the penalties (Harrison’s holding was declined). The Bears then added points again on a sluggish 10 play 36 yard drive that ended with a field goal to make it 17-3.

They weren’t done yet, Dan! Sam Darnold led a miraculous and honestly really impressive 8 play, 75 yard drive, that featured rookie WR Deontay Burnett and ended with a touchdown pass to Chris Herndon to make it 17-10.

A few plays later…

EA been in his playbook

The Jets cut the lead to 17-10 giving them a chance to get a stop, get the ball back and try to tie the game…but…

Really lost to this account…

The rest of the game was the Jets just floundering the reality that the game was a lost cause and that they couldn’t afford any more injuries. But at least the last play of the game was poetic…
