What was the most important play of the Jets’ loss to the Eagles yesterday?

As has been the case with most games this season, the Jets were so thoroughly beaten that it is difficult to single out one play as particularly significant. Still I’m not ready to give up on this series so let’s try.

The play that jumps out at me is Nathan Gerry’s pick six on Luke Falk.

The Jets were down 7-0 in the first quarter of the game, but they actually were able to string together a couple of first downs and move the ball near midfield. A fourth and 1 came up. The Jets correctly went for it.

The play itself did not work at all. Brandon Graham ran unblocked right into Falk’s face. The quarterback tried to find Le’Veon Bell in the flat but threw late. Gerry jumped the route and returned the interception for a touchdown. The Eagles were up 14-0, and there was very little doubt about what kind of day it would be.

What is your choice?
