Jets vs. Colts: Postgame Grades, Notes and Quotes for New York

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 22 Sep 2015

Ryan Fitzpatrick jogged from the New York Jets sideline to the huddle in Monday nights matchup against the Indianapolis Colts with no fear in his eyes. There was no hesitation and no worry. After spending a decade in the NFL, New Yorks quarterback knew just what needed to be done in this situation.And he wasnt the only one.Indianapolis had just scored a touchdown to pull within three with 10 minutes to play. The Jets needed to answer. The best way to do so' Dont get worked up.We had to go out there and do something, Fitzpatrick said. With the veterans in the huddle, there was a confidence out there.Fitzpatrick marched the Jets on an eight-play, 80-yard drive that was capped by a 15-yard touchdown to receiver Brandon Marshall. The score all but sealed New Yorks 20-7 victoryover Indianapolisat Lucas Oil Stadium.That was a big drive for us offensively, Fitzpatrick said. We knew we had to rely on everyone in that huddle to make plays. We did a good job stepping up there.While Fitzpatrickwho finished 22-of-34 for 244 yards, with a pair of touchdowns and one interception may have put the game out of reach on New Yorks longest drive of the day, it was the teams defense that dominated the Colts offense and kept New York in the game.Facing Colts star Andrew Luck, the Jets applied constant pressure and never let the young signal-caller get in a rhythm. Luck finished 21-of-37 for 250 yards, with one touchdown, three interceptions and a fumble. The Colts offense as a hole turned the ball over five times and didnt score until the fourth quarter.Unofficially, the Jets hurried Luck on 16 of his 37 dropbacks. Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis led the impressive defensive effort with four tackles, an interception and two fumble recoveries.Defensively, I think we came out and stuck to the game plan, Jets coach Todd Bowles said. We got some breaks, but our guys made plays. The guys made plays.Despite the fact the Colts were without their top three cornerbacks and lost a fourth when Vontae Davis suffered a concussion early in the first half, New Yorks offense was a bit stagnant. Receivers Eric Decker (eight receptions, 97 yards, touchdown) and Marshall (seven receptions, 101 yards, touchdown) put up nice statistical days, but overall, the Jets struggled to move the ball.After scoring a touchdown on their second possession of the game on a six-yard pass from Fitzpatrick to Decker, the Jets punted twice, threw an interception, kicked a field goal, missed a field goal and punted two more times before Marshalls touchdown iced things.Well have to go back and look (at the film,) Fitzpatrick said. We need to be able to stay on the field, and I need to get better at third downs. Theres a lot of stuff, and well try to get better. Well have to get better on offense to continue to win games.The victory for the Jets improves the teams record to 2-0 for the first time since 2011, while the Colts drop to 0-2. New York will next face the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium 1 p.m. Sunday.Begin Slideshow
