The New York Jets started the game big with a quick pick six on a dropped Colts pass. Andrew Luck and the Colts struck back with a quick drive down the field featuring a couple of tight end passes beating Jamal Adams and culminating in a wide open Colts receiver Marcus Johnson on a busted Jets coverage for a touchdown. The Jets responded with a long, methodical 69 yard drive taking up almost 8 minutes and ending in a field goal to re-take the lead 10-7.
After a quick three and out by the Colts the Jets took over at their 27 yard line. Sam Darnold coughed the ball up on a terrible pass off his back foot that Colts safety Malik Hooker intercepted uncontested. The Colts then marched to the Jets 1 yard line before the Jets put on a great goal line stand, holding the Colts to a field goal and a 10-10 tie.
On their next possession the Jets immediately coughed the ball up again on a Quincy Enunwa fumble. The Colts converted that turnover into another field goal and a 13-10 lead. At this point the Jets were fortunate not to be on the wrong end of a burgeoning blowout, as excellent Jets red zone stands were the only thing standing between the Jets and a 21-10 deficit.
The Jets then regrouped with turnovers and scoring drives to take a 23-13 lead into halftime, ending with a brilliant last minute scoring drive led by Sam Darnold. This was a wild, back and forth, mistake ridden half of football by both teams.
We go into the second half with the Jets looking to even their record at 3-3 and get themselves into position to make a run at first place in the AFC East.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
