Geno Smith could do no right once again, as the Jets fell to the Baltimore Ravens 19-3 losing consecutive games for the first time this season.
Smith was terrible completing just 9 of 22 passes for 127 yards. He turned the ball over 3 times including 2 interceptions.
The game started off promising for the Jets as the team drove deep inside Ravens territory, but had to settle for a field goal. That was the Jets scoring for the game.
New York managed just 3 yards of total offense in the second quarter, while Baltimore added 3 field goals to take a 9-3 lead into the break.
Early in the 3rd quarter, Justin Tucker connected on a 53-yard field goal to make the score 12-3. Then two possessions later, the Jets hopes faded away for good when Joe Flacco hit Jacboy Jones for a 66-yard touchdown on a ball that was brutally misplayed by former Raven Ed Reed.
Baltimore now lead 19-3 entering the fourth quarter where it was more of the same.
With the loss the Jets drop to 5-6 and 1-5 on the road. The Ravens improve to 5-6 with a Thanksgiving night showdown against the Steelers looming.
Aside from Ed Reed’s misplay on Jacoby Jones, the Jets defense did more than enough in this one. The Ravens were held to 67 yards on the ground, and Joe Flacco was sacked 4 times.
It was clear from the start that it wasn’t going to be Geno’s day, but Rex Ryan seemed content with living and dying with him as he didn’t consider brining Matt Simms into the game.
The margin for error for the Jets just got a whole lot smaller with a home matchup against the Miami Dolphins coming up next week.
