The Jets never seemed able to grab the momentum in their 27-17 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. They scored a touchdown with 34 seconds left in the first half to cut Buffalo’s lead to 14-10, but then gave up a 50-yard field goal as time expired. They drove down to the Buffalo 20 to open the second half only to have Vinny Testaverde throw an interception. Late in the fourth quarter they turned the ball over on their last two drives.
As if the loss in Buffalo wasn’t enough, the Jets have now lost Kevin Mawae for the season. The losses of Mawae and Pennington leave the Jets offense in dire straights. Will they be able to turnaround a season that many thought would lead to a playoff spot? They will try to next Sunday in Atlanta.
