Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 38-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins
The New York Jets had their best performance in nearly two months today at home against the Miami Dolphins with a dominant 38-20 victory. It was a “get well” game for the team against a mediocre opponent, where they got back to doing things that paved the way for their 4-1 start, mixed in with contributions from a few new faces. It was their fifth double digit victory of the season and second over the Dolphins.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 24-17 loss to the Houston Texans
The New York Jets continued their mid-season swoon today in Houston with a 24-17 loss to the Houston Texans. Right now, the Jets are a bad football team who have lost 4 of their previous 5 games, regressing hard to the mean with a 5-5 record. Everybody has their scapegoat but the Jets issues are sadly more complex than a one person problem…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets embarrassing 34-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders
The New York Jets had their first truly awful showing of the 2015 season today in Oakland, with an embarrassing effort in a 34-20 loss. Despite being without Nick Mangold and Calvin Pryor, there is no excuse for how the Jets played today. The injuries continued to mount as well, with Geno Smith replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick in the first quarter and Brandon Marshall leaving needing x-rays on both his toe and ankle. Can the Jets rebound or is their first losing steak of the season going to compile into a downward trend for what had been an encouraging start?

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets 30-23 loss to the New England Patriots
Despite leading going into the fourth quarter and having their opportunities late, the New York Jets lost a tough 30-23 game to the New England Patriots, who remain King in the AFC East. The Jets will be kicking themselves for some of the plays they left on the field in a game where they probably did not get New England’s best shot. Regardless, they must move on quickly with a cross country trip on the way to take on the suddenly feisty Oakland Raiders…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 34-20 win over the Washington Redskins, moving them to 4-1
The New York Jets continued their impressive start to the 2015 regular season with a 34-20 win over the Washington Redskins, moving their record to 4-1. Beating Washington at home in itself is not overly impressive but the way today’s game played out showed why the Jets may have a hit home run with their coaching staff hires and new free agent/trade acquisitions…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 27-14 win over the Miami Dolphins
The New York Jets moved to 3-1, 3-0 in the AFC and 1-0 in the AFC East with a 27-14 win over the Miami Dolphins, their third double digit win of the season. Despite 14 penalties, poor special teams play and an endless fourth quarter that saw the Dolphins hang around longer than expected, the Jets were still clearly the superior team and in control throughout. It is fair to wonder if the Dolphins are headed to a full scale housecleaning after this game…

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets first loss of the season, 24-17 to the Philadelphia Eagles
The New York Jets suffered their first loss of the season today to the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-17 thanks primarily to an ugly first half which saw them fall behind 24-0. There were multiple culprits today as in any loss but it was frustrating to see how winnable this game was despite all of the Jets errors. If there is a game to lose, it is to an out of conference opponent but the Jets will need to clean their act up in 7 days before a critical division game against the Miami Dolphins.

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 20-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts
The New York Jets got themselves a statement win in primetime by knocking off the Indianapolis Colts 20-7 tonight. This was a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated, as a sluggish Jets offense allowed the Colts to hang around despite their defense forcing five…yes five, turnovers. Regardless, the Jets took care of business late and showed they just may be a force to be reckoned with in a very jumbled AFC.

The New York Jets started off their 2015 regular season on the right foot with a commanding 31-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns. After a sluggish start, the Jets ripped off 24 unanswered points and turned in a balanced, disciplined performance. The two numbers that mattered the most today? The Jets had four penalties and were plus four in the turnover battle…
