Cowboys vs. Jets Sunday Night Football: First Quarter Cause for Concern for Jets
The first quarter is finished between the Jets and Cowboys, and it has been all Dallas so far even though they only hold a 7-0 lead.
Some of the biggest takeaways from the game if you are a New York Jets fan:
- The Jets linebackers are doing horrible in pass coverage. A combination of short passes to receivers and passes to running backs have turned three yard passes into first downs.
- The offensive game plan early on seems to be to pass the ball a bit more than normal. Not sure if they are doing this to open up the running game or if they want to take advantage of a depleted Cowboys secondary. So far it is not really working, as Sanchez has made some poor decisions and bad throws.
- Jets defense has calmed down after the first drive, but is still missing tackles. Bart Scott had a great chance to get a sack on Romo but whiffed. On the big catch by Dez Bryant the Jets almost didn't take down Bryant, and took some poor angles to make the tackle.
- Burress has been a no-show so far, but it is not as though the Jets have had many opportunists to look his way.
Of course this is only a single quarter of a long season, but there are some worries early on. The Jets have never been known as a team to be a quick starter, so some of this was expected. As everyone who has played football knows, how you start the game is not nearly as important as how you end the game.
