The NY Jets didn’t receive too many passing grades in their Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
The NY Jets limped their way out of the starting gate and put together an embarrassing Week 1 performance that saw them fall to the Buffalo Bills by a final score of 27-17.
But as we all know, that final score certainly doesn’t tell the whole story.
This was a game that was never close and one-sided really until the very end. The Bills whooped the Jets on both sides of the ball and if it wasn’t for some untimely self-inflicted errors and a little bit of luck, the score would have reflected that.
The offense appeared as though they hadn’t made any strides from a year ago while the defense looked like they took a step back. All the while, the coaching staff did the team no favors.
The Jets may just be 0-1, but after an ugly showing like that in Week 1, it has many already believing that the season might as well be over. And it takes a truly disastrous Week 1 performance to arrive at that conclusion so early.
There really aren’t many positives to take away from the team’s opening-day loss. A few individual players managed to shine amidst a sea of darkness, but the overall units they were a part of ultimately failed.
Nonetheless, let’s put on our grading caps and do our best to assign some grades to each facet of the team. Things could get ugly.
