The Jets played disciplined football against the Denver Broncos, only being called for 2 penalties (1 declined). However they still lost. Playing disciplined football helps a team but you need more than that to beat good teams in this league. Regardless, it was pleasing to see us not beat ourselves with silly mistakes. We lost because they have better players, it's as simple as that sometimes.
7- Geno Smith (Intentional Grounding) - Declined

I actually thought the Refs let a lot go on both sides. I saw several people calling them out for a bias towards Peyton and I can definitely see that with the delay of game etc, however it's the same in any sports, you earn some no-calls from the refs. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying that's a part of life. Peyton because of his prolonged success, probably gets away with a lot more than say Geno. Saying that, they did mess up the Decker completion. How they send that to the review booth and still get it wrong puzzles me. However NFL officials are notoriously bad, in fact football officials in general are bad.
Geno is the only new entry, although it was declined. Walls has still given up the most yardage and Colon is still the most penalized player on the team.
