The New York Jets have put together two straight wins at home in MetLife Stadium as safety Jamal Adams knows exactly what is different about this year’s team.
Despite things getting a bit sloppy in their Week 6 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the New York Jets found a way to win. The Jets defeated the Colts 42-34 in front of the home crowd in MetLife Stadium with emotions running high celebrating the 50th anniversary of Super Bowl III.
It wasn’t perfect but the Jets are slowly but surely trying to find their identity. It might take a few more weeks but so far, the offense is clicking. They’re scoring points and keeping those chains moving.
The defense, on the other hand, still has a lot of work to do. For now, however, they were able to do just enough to ensure they did their part to leave the field victorious. Even safety Jamal Adams sees the difference about this year’s team when it comes to closing football games.

Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Adams had to say about what is causing the big difference:
Well, we’re closing, that’s the difference. Last year, in a game like this, we could have gave it back and lost it. We had a lot of games like that last year, but we stuck together, we understood the adversity and we fought it and came out victorious.
In the grand scheme of things, Adams is completely accurate in what he said. Players are a lot more energetic, fiery, and playing for each other. It goes a long way in ensuring that everyone is held accountable for what they do on the gridiron. Otherwise, more blown plays, useless penalties, and broken coverages will happen on a more frequent basis.
The Jets are now 3-3 and preparing for their biggest test of the season in Week 7. No, not those pesky New England Patriots, but the Minnesota Vikings. They will be one of the toughest challenges the Jets will face at this point of the season but if they continue to play like they have been and find ways to close football games, they might very well make it three straight wins at home.
