They were better when we didnt turn it over after getting into the redzone. The defense didnt fall apart in the 4th quarter because they actually were able to rest and werent facing a short field all day.
Good QB play makes the team around them better....thats what we need
I agree, to an extent. There still isn't enough around him for the Jets to succeed with this kind of effort against a team significantly better than the Rams. That is what is so disconcerting about facing the Pats. Hopefully it will boost his confidence a bit and lead to more of the same as far as performance, which in turn will add to their chances for success.
