Flag On The Play: Penalties Cost Jets Dearly!

New, comments

Last week the Jets played some disciplined football and lost. This week they had costly penalties, and lost.

You almost come to expect a heartbreaking defeat in New England, we've now lost by 3,3 and 2 points in recent years. We played some very disciplined football last week against the Bronco's, however the offensive line changing personnel and the pressure cranked up, the Jets shot themselves in the foot numerous times last night. A couple of penalties early, really cost the Jets. The Colon holding penalty and the Aboushi holding penalties negated a touchdown and a 10 yard game in the red-zone.

75 - Oday Aboushi - Holding, 10 yards (Nullified a TD)

66 - Willie Colon - Holding, 10 yards (Nullified a 10 yard run)

58 - Jason Babin - Neutral Zone Infraction, 5 yards

39 - Antonio Allen - Defensive Pass Interference, 32 yards

97 - Calvin Pace - Defensive Offside - 5 yards

56 - Demario Davis - Illegal Contact - 5 yards

10 - T.J Graham - Offensive Holding - 3 yards

Willie Colon continues to lead the pack in terms of quantity, however Antonio Allen now leads the pack in terms of yardage. He had an horrendous game and there is no other way to put it. We can talk about whether the penalties should have been called or not. The bottom line is we didn't get the job done in the red-zone when we have the chance. The hold to negate the Kerley touchdown was seen early and everyone seemed to realize before the ball was even in Kerley's hands.

That penalty really did kill us along with the Colon one mentioned which put us back when we were moving the ball in the red-zone.
