Mekhi Becton, LT, NY Jets
It was a bad day for so many reasons for the offensive line. Already without starters Duane Brown, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Joe Tippmann, the group also lost center Connor McGovern and backup guard/center Wes Schweitzer to injury.
It forced a complete offensive line shuffle with practice squad call-up Xavier Newman playing center for the first time in his NFL career.
The Jets were relying on Mekhi Becton to help solidify an otherwise disastrous offensive line. He responded by turning in his worst performance of the year.
Becton had a rough time against Kayvon Thibodeaux, who finished with three sacks and nine tackles, including a forced fumble. Both the forced fumble sack and what should have been the game-clinching sack came when Becton got beat by Thibodeaux.
In the coming weeks, with the offensive line still banged up, Becton will need to be better. The Jets need him and left guard Laken Tomlinson to be factors in the run game and hold up in pass protection.
