Week 6 NFL Thoughts – JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum)

Our Heroes in Green

That’s what I’m talking about.  It was just the kind of game the old Jets would find a way to drop.  Not the 2022 Jets.  Nope.  The Dolphins were down, and we kicked them just like we needed to.  Gang Green was 5-6 in the red zone and didn’t turn the ball over.  A +2 turnover margin will win a lot of games in this league.  Zach was efficient and Breece Hall was in beast mode all day long.

Next week’s game is the Jet’s toughest of the young season.  Green Bay will be ready after dropping a very winnable game to the Giants in London.  Green Bay doesn’t usually play poorly in back-to-back weeks.  It will take the best game the Jets have played all year to leave Wisconsin with a win.   The good news is that the Jets confidence is high, and the cross-town Giants put a blueprint on film for the Jets to emulate.  The Giants found soft spots in the Green Bay run defense and a less talented receiving core was effective against the Green Bay secondary.  The Jets receivers are more talented by far than the group filling in for the Giants last week.  The Jets secondary can cover this group of Green Bay receivers.  The Jets can get pressure on Rodgers.  My concern is the Green Bay running game.  When the Packers are down, they go back to basics.  Green Bay ran for 203 yards in week two after dropping their opener.  If the Jets are hyper focused on Rodgers, Aaron Jones will hurt them.  If the Jets can stop the run, they will be in the game with a chance to win it late.
