The Jets lost on Sunday so it is once again our sad duty to hand out the anti-game ball.
As always, we try to avoid giving the anti-game ball to the quarterback or repeat recipients whenever possible.
Josh McCown made a play for the anti-game ball with his fourth quarter fumble the Panthers returned for the go-ahead score. McCown, however, seems to have more anti-game ball lives than a cat this year. I am going to let him off the hook and go with Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Seferian-Jenkins dropped as easy of a touchdown catch as he will ever have early in Sunday’s game. He was wide open, and the throw was good enough. Momentarily in the second half it seemed like he atoned for the mistake with a diving catch in the end zone. It came off the board on review as the officials ruled the ball moved.
The call was debatable, but Seferian-Jenkins could have been stronger with his hands to prevent the ball from moving and eliminated any debate. In any event, the play did not make up for the big drop.
For those reasons, Austin Seferian-Jenkins gets my anti-game ball. Who gets yours?
