Week 9 nearly spelled overtime disaster for the New York Jets, and in Week 10 the same storyline unfolded in Cleveland against Eric Mangini's Browns.
For a team that was cracked up to be the next best thing since chocolate milk, Rex Ryan's bubbling offensive team has struggled to maintain even the slightest bit of composure and stability in the past four weeks.
Rewinding just for a second, everything seemed to come undone for the Jets following their 9-0 shutout loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 9. The Jets offense was as flat as a New York style pizza, and from here on out, Mark Sanchez and his crew have struggled to provide points on a consistent basis.
Therefore, it's probably no surprise to anybody that the Jets are now ranked 20th in offensive pass yards following this disastrous play, and chances are if this continues, New York may weave themselves out of playoff contention if they aren't lucky.
But if it hasn't been one thing for Rex Ryan, it's been another. New York's defense continues to struggle, and on the weekend against the Cleveland Browns, the Jets once again needed an overtime period to beat a considerably weaker team on the road.
Fortunately for all loyal Jets supporters, Gang Green has at least pulled out the victories. Week 9 provided a scare with the Lions, and now that the Browns have sent every AFC team a message, the Jets must resort to the drawing board quickly.
Week 11 sees Rex Ryan take his team back home to face the Houston Texans. The sight of Meadowlands Stadium should be a treat for the Jets, after two consecutive road games.
Still, the Texans pack a lot of star power, and with no offense, the Jets may struggle again. We'll wait and see if this unfolds, but Week 10 certainly highlighted the kinks in New York's once-dominant team.
