The NY Jets' offense is completely inept. It doesn't really matter whose fault it even is at this point. Everything is bad. It's the play-calling. It's Zach Wilson. It's the skill players. It's the offensive line. It's everything.
The Jets' defense dominated another game, holding the Raiders to just 16 points and giving the offense numerous opportunities to win the game. Multiple takeaways — it didn't matter.
The Jets haven't scored a touchdown in nearly 40 consecutive drives. They haven't executed a touchdown drive longer than one play since Week 4.
Yet, despite the offense's persistent and consistent struggles, the Jets refuse to make any changes. They still continue to trot out the same quarterback, the same supporting cast, and the same offensive coaching staff.
Poor performances don't have ramifications. And as a result, the Jets' season is on life support.
The NY Jets need to make wholesale offensive changes
A loss sends the Jets plummeting to 4-5 and the 13th seed in the AFC. Following wins by the Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Cleveland Browns this week, the playoffs seem like a distant goal for the Jets.
Wilson finished the game by completing 23-of-39 passes for zero touchdowns and a costly interception. He was also the victim of a strip sack, although the fumble was recovered.
Wilson was his usual inconsistent self, and while he wasn't the biggest reason for the Jets' loss this week, his interception at the end of the game ultimately cost his team a potential victory.
Unfortunately, the Jets had numerous opportunities to make changes. They looked at their offense at the trade deadline and decided they were content with what they had. They've evaluated their offensive play-calling and decided they're perfectly fine with what they have.
Now, it's approaching too-late territory. The Jets' odds to make the postseason have fallen below 25 percent. This week's loss seemingly seals their fate.
The Jets should be embarrassed. The offense cost them another game. Rinse. Wash. Repeat.
