JETS 27 – PACKERS 10

The New York Jets have been one of the NFL’s most ridiculed teams for well over a decade. From Buttfumbles to Adam Gase’s googly eyes, nobody has taken the Jets seriously in some time. That is all changing, and Head Coach Robert Saleh is taking receipts.

When Saleh said following New York’s 24-9 opening day loss to Baltimore that he would take stock of all those who knock his football team, many scoffed. They aren’t anymore.

The Jets thoroughly beat up the Green Bay Packers and their Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the tune of 27-10. The Jets snapped Green Bay’s 15-game home winning streak; snapped Green Bay’s 9-0 record following a loss, and got its first win against Rodgers since he took over the reins from Brett Favre.

At 4-2 the Jets are most definitely for real.

While the stats say that Rodgers threw for 241 yards, he never got comfortable in the pocket. He was sacked four times, fumbled twice — lost one — and was on the run for his life most of the day as Quinnen and Quincy Williams both enjoyed one of their best games in a Jets uniform.

Quinnen couldn’t be contained by Green Bay’s offensive line. He recorded five tackles and two sacks of Rodgers. His brother Quincy was seen exploding through the line much of the afternoon to pound either Packers running back AJ Dillon or Aaron Jones into the dirt.

It was old school football and the Jets were loving every second of it.

A defensive slugfest that produced only six total points in the first half soon saw the Jets offense take charge of this game on the ground.

Facing a critical second and eight at the Jets own 28-yard line, Zach Wilson rolled right and heaved up his best pass of the day, a 41-yard strike to Corey Davis that got the Jets quickly into Green Bay territory.

On the next play, Braxton Berrios took the reverse and charged untouched for 20-yards into the end zone to give the Jets a 10-3 lead.

Before Jets fans could settle down from their excitement, Gang Green was on the scoreboard again when Gang Green blocked the Packers punt and Will Parks scooped up the loose ball and rumbled into the end zone for the score to make it 17-3.

After Green Bay scored to cut the Jets lead to 17-10, Gang Green did exactly what a good team is supposed to do: answer the challenge.

After a couple of throws by Wilson to tight ends C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin, Breece Hall put the game away when he found a seam, burst through the line and was gone, streaking 34-yards to pay-dirt to put the Jets back up by 14-points.

The Packers would never challenge again, as the Jets walked away with easily their most impressive, and most important victory to date under Saleh. Yup, the Jets are indeed for real.
