The Jets lost on Sunday, which makes it our sad duty to give out the tenth anti-game ball of the 2020 season.
There are many directions I could go with this honor. Perhaps I am too focused on this aspect, but I still have a difficult time understanding the first half play calling for the Jets. There were two combined targets in the passing game for all of the team’s wide receivers. The offense struggled, only producing 6 points. Those points came on a touchdown that was set up by a short field off a blocked punt.
Under any circumstances it would be worth questioning why the passing game went in this direction. It became more baffling in the second half as it became clear the Chargers had major issues covering Denzel Mims and Breshad Perriman on the outside. Both receivers made explosive plays and drew penalties as the offense put up three touchdowns in the final two quarters of the game.
In a game where the Jets had a patchwork secondary and needed to score a lot of points to win, they waited until the second half to test the defense.
With that in mind, I give my anti-game ball to the offensive coordinator, Dowell Loggains.
Who gets your anti-game ball?
