Thompkins, Powell On The Rise As Jets Offense Splutters

New, comments

The Jets may have scored under 20 points, but they put points on the board when it mattered.

At times it was hard to watch this offense last night. We weren't getting any kind of push up front, and Fitzpatrick was missing on some of his early throws. As John noted in his post-game wrap, Ivory seemed to be bouncing around instead of just hitting the hole. Fitzpatrick found a rhythm late and with the help of Decker and Marshall, we did just enough to win this game.

Thompkins came up big late in the game with a 43 yard reception. Nobody saw the Jets going deep to Thompkins in that situation, but Fitzpatrick saw the corner peaking into the backfield which allowed the Jets receiver to get in behind. It was a big spot and a big time reception, even if he did have to double-clutch it.

Bilal Powell scored his 3rd touchdown in as many games when he ran in a 12 yard score, his first rushing touchdown of the season. If Powell keeps up this pace, he'll tie his single season touchdown record of 4 (2012)

Lets get into the snap counts. The Jets played 71 snaps in total on offense. Remember both Decker and Marshall got banged up in the game and had to miss several snaps while receiving treatment.
