The New York Jets are regarded as one of the finest teams in the league in the clutch, but Sunday proved that they are pretenders this season.
Despite handling the Giants for the majority of the game, the Jets could not come up with any big plays. Mark Sanchez failed to impress by committing numerous turnovers in key times.
The 29-14 loss should be completely blamed on the offense, as the Gang Green defense was stiff all game. Stars David Harris and Darrelle Revis both had excellent games, but Antonio Cromartie and the rest of the Jets secondary struggled, allowing big plays and missing multiple tackles.
The Jets offensive line was outplayed by the Giants elite defensive line all day, and Mark Sanchez was under pressure for the majority of the game.
New York now needs a miracle to make the postseason. To claim the final spot in the AFC playoffs, The Jets have to beat the Dolphins next week, while also getting losses from the Bengals, Titans and Broncos or Raiders.
