Playing horrid offenses will always pad your statistics. Although the defense is getting better, I just think they are lacking in spots. Their linebackers are horrible and they cannot generate a consistent pass rush. They are also young and tend to be inconsistent against good offenses.
I can see Wilkerson and Coples creating a pretty good pass rush in the future, but they still need a linebacker that can sack the QB also.
Who is young? Coples and Demario are not even on the field 1/2 the time. Then there is Wilkenson and Ellis who are in their 3rd year. The jets have an old defense.
Offense is 24th in Firstdowns, Mark is 34th in QBR. While only throwing for 12 TDs, Mark has thrown 13 INTs and has lost 6 of 11 fumbles. That's 19 turnovers with 3 games left to play. His bad play combined with his turnovers cause our D to be on the field more and tire out. I'm not surprised they're 19th in points allowed with a QB that can't keep them on the sideline.
And don't forget the disaster that has been our specials teams this year.
