Texans vs. Jets: Final Report Card, Player Grades for New York Jets

Mark Sanchez couldn't lead the New York Jets to a last-gasp score as they fell 23-17 to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.

Most reasonable Jets fans had to figure that the team would probably stand at 2-3 after five weeks, and that's just what they are. They have won the games they were favored in and lost the ones in which they were underdogs.

Tonight's game leaves Jets fans with mixed feelings.

Looking back, it's clearly a game they could have won with a couple of breaks, so that is frustrating for sure.  

However, there is some sense of relief that the Jets aren't just going to roll over on this season. The Jets stood toe-to-toe with, perhaps, the best team in the NFL and weren't particularly hurt in this game by the absence of Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.

On the positive side, Antonio Cromartie played a terrific game, and Jeremy Kerley showed he can be a weapon, even against a good defense.  

On the negative side, the Jets continued to struggle against the run, couldn't get to the quarterback and still have no running game.

However, when you take this game as a whole, there are positive signs that this season isn't lost.

Here's a look at how the key Jets graded out in their loss to the Texans.
