The Jets faced the Atlanta Falcons at MetLife Stadium on a rainy day and tried to get back into the win column after a tough loss in week seven to the Miami Dolphins. New York had their hands full with QB Matt Ryan and the high-powered Falcons offense. Though ultimately, their inability to convert after turnovers proved to be the difference.

THE GOOD

The Jets came out for the third game in a row and scored on their first drive. This time on a 20-yard touchdown to WR Eric Tomlinson.

LB Jordan Jenkins and S Jamal Adams both recovered Matt Ryan fumbles in the first quarter.

K Chandler Catanzaro made field goals from 43 in the first quarter and 46 in the fourth quarter.

QB Josh McCown hit WR Robby Anderson for a 24-yard second quarter touchdown. Anderson led all receivers with 6 receptions for 104 yards and a long of 32.

THE BAD

Catanzaro missed field goals of 46 in the first quarter and 48 in the fourth quarter.

At the half, the Jets only had 8 first downs.

RB Bilal Powell led all Jets rushers with 33 yards on 14 carries. The team’s rushers only gained 43 yards total for the game.

THE UGLY

The Jets only produced 3 points off of the two first half turnovers.

WR Jeremy Kerley made a costly turnover on a punt return which gave the Falcons great field position and ultimately led to a 29-yard field goal by Atlanta’s Matt Bryant.

The Jets had multiple opportunities with good field position and failed to deliver.

The team is now 3-5 and has lost three games in a row.

Jets inactives included: QB Christian Hackenberg, WR ArDarius Stewart, CB Derrick Jones, LB Obum Gwacham, DB Buster Skrine, OL Brandon Shell and TE Jordan Leggett
