Jets Showing Offensive Consistency

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

If you said before the year that the Jets would have something positive in common offensively with the Patriots, I am not sure many people would have believed you. They do, though, consistency.

The Jets are eleventh in the league in scoring. That would be on pace for their best finish since they were ninth in 2008 with Brett Favre at quarterback. The fact above is telling, though. It is one thing if you are running up garbage time touchdowns in a blowout one week while getting shut out the next. The offense to some extent is performing at a consistent level every week.

The season low point total is 17. The Jets scored less than that six times a year ago.

Let me repeat that. The worst scoring day for the Jets this season would have been their seventh worst a year ago.

At the start of the season, I was hoping additions like Brandon Marshall and Ryan Fitzpatrick would be enough to push the Jets to at least credibility on offense. Something functional would be an improvement over the last few years.

It has not been functional. This is actually a pretty good offense.
