The Jets looked like a new team in the 2018 opener last week against Detroit. Today they looked a lot like the sloppy team we have seen over the last few seasons. The Dolphins spoiled the home opener today at MetLife Stadium 20-12.
It is one thing to lose because your opponent plays a stellar game. Jets fans know that feeling well as they share a division with the Patriots. That isn’t what happened in this game. The Dolphins were not very good in this game. They made a number of unforced errors that handed opportunities to the Jets on a silver platter. The Jets simply squandered them. A parade of turnovers, drops, bad routes, missed tackles, blown coverages, and missed assignments helped Miami build a 20-0 lead at halftime and hold on for dear life during a shaky second half.
Mourn below. We will have more tonight and in the days ahead.
