Once again, it is Sunday morning, so we take a break from the draft recaps for an article. Over the last three months, we have been looking back at a play from each game on offense, and looking at how it went well. Despite the overall offensive output, there were enough plays to choose one per week:

We are up to week 14, when the Jets hosted the Oakland Raiders, and found a guy named Kerley when they needed some points. Take a look:

The Jets are lined up in the shotgun, with Kerley out to the slot on the left side. As we know, Kerley will be the intended target here.

Look how close the Oakland defense is up on the line. See it? Not exactly a lot of room for zone defense here. Let’s role it forward.

Look down the field. Who is open? Nobody. So what is Geno Smith to do? He is going to put the ball up top to where his guy can make a play, and in this case, that guy is Jeremy Kerley.

Kerley makes the catch on the ball at its highest point, and it’s a 25 yard TD for the Jets.

See? Even if not open, the Jets can get it done.
