Devin Smith Sees More Action, Kerley Disappears Again

New, comments

The Jets are back at 5-5 on the season, and have now lost 4 of their last 5 games. It's now officially getting towards a crisis moment.

Watching the Jets at the start of the season was fun. They could move the ball, they protected Fitz well and they played some superb defense. Unfortunately that seems like a long time ago, as the Jets continue to drop games they need to win to be in the playoffs.

Despite this barren run, nobody in the AFC is running away with the wildcard spots, and if the Bills lose to the Patriots tonight, we'll still be right there for the #6 seed in the AFC.

Yesterday we saw Devin Smith's play time increase, which resulted in another poor performance by the rookie. Jeremy Kerley barely saw the field, which makes absolutely no sense. Davis is getting more reps than Cumberland and Bilal Powell saw more time than Chris Ivory.

Mangold suffered another injury and lasted just 11 plays.

The Jets offense ran 67 plays yesterday, so the numbers below reflect that.

Ryan Fitzpatrick - 67 (100%)

Running Back

Bilal Powell - 41 (61%)

Wesley Johnson - 56 (84%)

Nick Mangold - 11 (16%)
