The Jets lost their third straight game today 25-20 to the Atlanta Falcons at a rainy MetLife Stadium. New York finishes the first half of the 2017 season with a 3-5 record.

Unlike the last two weeks, the Jets did not jump out to a 14-0 lead, but they did lead the game for much of the first three quarters. Once again, the team struggled to finish. The offense sputtered late again, scoring only one field goal in the second half. Meanwhile an injury suffered by Morris Claiborne loomed large in some key spots.

Through the first five weeks of the season, it seemed like the Jets might be a pleasant surprise. They were showing signs that they might beat the preseason predictions of doom and gloom.

As things stand right now, the Jets look very much like that bottom tier team of the preseason predictions. They keep managing to lose winnable games.

Discuss below. We will have more later.
