4. The NY Jets special teams was a mess

The Jets still don't have a kicker. New York moved on from Matt Ammendola this week in favor of Alex Kessman who made his NFL debut on Sunday. Kessman missed both of his extra-point attempts and the Jets seemingly gave up on him after that.

They went for it on 4th-and-goal, opted to go for two instead of kicking an extra point, and did everything to ensure that Kessman didn't attempt another kick. Sunday might have been the first and last time that we see Kessman in a Jets uniform.

Meanwhile, punter Braden Mann had another poor performance. The former sixth-round pick punted twice for 79 yards with both kicks coming up well short of where they ideally would have been.

Either Mann is still not recovered from his knee injury or he's regressed significantly. Either way, he shouldn't be on the field right now.

5. Tevin Coleman had another good day

It's flown under the radar a bit, but Tevin Coleman has more than made the most of his opportunities in recent weeks. Filling in for the injured Michael Carter, Coleman led the way again rushing for 58 yards on 11 carries for an efficient 5.3 yards per carry.

He also hauled in three catches for 19 yards and was a reliable check-down target for Zach Wilson, aside from one third-quarter drop.

This comes one week after he rushed for 67 yards in the team's Week 12 win over the Houston Texans. Coleman has proven his worth and emerged as the de facto lead back with Carter sidelined.

It's easy to overlook how well he's played, but Coleman deserves credit for his performance in recent weeks. Expect him to maintain a role in the offense even upon Carter's return.
