Here are 5 quick hits on tonight’s game featuring the New York Jets and the Carolina Panthers.
The Jets have yet to score an offensive touchdown this preseason. Sad but true, the New York Jets are the only team in the NFL that has not been able to get the ball across the goal line on 37 offensive possessions this preseason. The offense has struggled to move the ball on early downs, getting behind the chains and leaving long conversions on third down.
The lack of a power running game has failed to suck up defenses on play action while poor pass protection has allowed opposing teams to get pressure with just four pass rushers. The Jets offense must find their identity before the start of the regular season and get in rhythm to succeed early in 2012.
