The Jets played one of their most complete games of the Robert Saleh era on Sunday, but it wasn’t enough to beat the Bucs.
Zach Wilson looked great, the offensive line held up well against a tough Buccaneers defensive front, and the defense held on – right up until the final two minutes of the game. New York ultimately lost, 28-24, after Tom Brady delivered a familiar last-minute dagger.
Moral victories aren’t real victories, but the Jets showed they can hang with good teams in Week 17. A few key players helped the Jets stay competitive, but a few others cost them the game.
Here are the studs and duds from the Jets’ loss to the Buccaneers.
