It took the Jets 30 minutes to get going in their trip to London to take on the Falcons.
This time around, they did not have enough second-half magic in them to come all the way back for a win.
Tevin Coleman started the second half with a long kick return and the Jets took advantage of the big gain with a Ty Johnson touchdown, but that was far from enough to overcome Atlanta’s strong first half. The 20-3 lead Matt Ryan and company built proved to be just enough breathing room, as New York couldn’t muster up enough offense in a 27-20 loss.
Michael Carter cut the Falcons’ lead to 20-15 with six and a half minutes remaining in the fourth and Zach Wilson connected with Jamison Crowder on a two-point conversion to make it a three-point game. The Jets couldn’t get it done defensively with the game on the line, though, allowing Atlanta to convert on 3rd & 13 with just over four minutes remaining and then score a touchdown to put the game out of reach.
Here’s a quick look at New York’s fourth loss of the season — one that could have been avoided with just a bit more offensive output and one last defensive stand.
