Each Wednesday moving forward, JETSerious will bring you inside the film room and evaluate the Jets game from that week. We will dive into 4 plays per week, analyzing 2 good and 2 bad. We’ll dissect the coach’s film (courtesy of NFL Rewind), and discuss what the Jets need to do to prepare for their upcoming opponent. What plays worked in Miami? What plays didn’t? How can the Jets improve moving forward?
JETSerious will answer those questions for you… right now!
Normally, we’ll be focusing on 2 good plays and 2 bad plays. But, considering that the Jets/Dolphins game went into overtime… we’ll go into overtime as well– inside the film room.
Let’s get to it… Enjoy!
1). QB Mark Sanchez completes a pass to Jeremy Kerley for 66 yards.
Jeremy Kerley is going to run a route to the sticks and make a move to the outside.
Mark Sanchez has a clean pocket thus far, but the Dolphins pass rush will end up exploding off the edge.
Once the pass rush gets to the edge, Sanchez is forced to step up in the pocket and look downfield.
Jeremy Kerley runs a great route, and is able to create separation from the Dolphins CB.
And he’s off to the races. You can tell that there’s nobody ahead of Kerley for the next 25 yards or so.
2). Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is intercepted by Jets Safety LaRon Landry. Landry takes it in for the score.
The Jets line up in a 3-4 defense and the Dolphins are backed up towards their own end-zone.
Tannehill takes the snap and is flushed out to the right, where he is pressured to make a decision quicker than he intended.
LaRon Landry makes a great jump on the ball and takes the pick back for six. This essentially was the turning point of the game.
1). QB Mark Sanchez throws an interception early in the first quarter.
Mark Sanchez drops back and reads the defense with a very clean pocket ahead of him.
WR Clyde Gates has inside positon. But as a new Jet, he lacks chemistry with Mark and doesn’t run his route sharp enough.
Gates continues his inside route slimmer than what Sanchez had anticpated, allowing the Dolphins CB to undercut the route.
2). Jets CB Antonio Cromartie gets burned by Dolphins WR Brian Hartline for a 41 yard gain.
In overtime, Tannehill runs a great play-action fake, drawing 3 Jets defenders up to stop the run. Too bad for the Jets–it’s a pass.
Uncharacteristic of a verteran CB, Cromartie jumps the short route like a rookie and has no help deep from the Safety.
The Free Safety notices that there’s a Dolphin WR wide open mid-field, and runs down to cover. That leaves Hartline all alone.
Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill makes a very impressive throw, right where it needs to be. He drops the pass in between the CB and FS.
After a Dolphins missed field goal in overtime, Mark Sanchez throws a deep pass to Santonio Holmes for a 38
The Dolphins come out with 4 down lineman here, unaware that the Jets are about to go deep.
Mark Sanchez has a very clean pocket to load up for a deep pass left to Santonio Holmes.
Sanchez throws a beautiful tear-drop pass down the left sideline, that only Santonio can reach.
Overall, this was a very sketchy win for the Jets. Coming up next is a beastly 49er’s team that will be a lot tougher to go up against.
3 ways for the Jets to improve before taking the field this Sunday:
- Correct the QB/WR communication and chemistry issues.
- Establish the running game. Even if that means giving Tim Tebow more rushes than Greene or Powell… go with the hot hand.
- Stop the run. Rex cannot be happy with a 28th ranked rush defense. If Rex can get the run defense together, it’ll take pressure off of the pass defense– that is now without Darrelle Revis.
Thanks for reading!
