Davis, Bohanon And Some Power Football

New, comments

The Jets have simplified their offense in recent weeks, so it mirrors what we were doing earlier this season. What do you know, we're on a 3 game win streak.

Sometimes you can try and do too much. Todd Bowles commented several weeks ago that the Jets were over-complicating their offense, trying to do too much, too quickly. He then said that he would scale that back and go back to what they were doing right, the Jets now currently own their first 3 game win streak since 2011, so lets keep doing what we do well. Pound the football and take the high percentage throws that teams give us when they dedicate extra resource to the box.

Looking at the snap counts for the offense today, it's obvious that's what we have done recently. FB Tommy Bohanon saw an increase as did pass blocking tight end Kellen Davis. Jeremy Kerley again failed to see the field much, partly to do with an injury and partly to do with the fact we don't really use him on offense.

Devin Smith obviously exited with what looked like a bad knee injury, we'll know more about that later today after he has an MRI.
