Jared Scherl breaks down everything wrong with Todd Bowles decision to punt in the 4th quarter against Buffalo…
In a 2016 season full of mistakes, Todd Bowles’ most perplexing one came in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jets were trailing by 11 points with 7:36 left in the 4th quarter. Fitzpatrick and the Jets offense had the ball at their own 46 facing a 4th and 2. There should have been no decision to be made by Bowles. The Jets had to go for it. Instead, Bowles punted the ball away to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense. The next time the Jets saw the ball they were down 18 with 1:51 left–the game was over.

On second and short, the Jets were in desperation mode. In Week 17 of the 2015 season, the game and a playoff berth were on the line. The Jets were backed up inside their own 30-yard line with 25 seconds left and needed a touchdown. Ryan Fitzpatrick lined up in the shotgun, and released a pass deep down the right sideline, seemingly into the heart of the Bills’ prevent defense. But as the camera panned left to track the flight of the ball, journeyman wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins emerged, streaking down the sideline uncovered. The ball hit Thompkins in the hands, and just as he attempted to secure the catch, cornerback Mario Butler came slashing across the field to slam his helmet into the ball.
