Colts vs Jets: Analyzing the Monday night debacle

On the latest edition of “Talking Jets and Giants”, co-hosts Richard Rodgers and Justin Witmondt break down the Colts vs Jets embarrassing Week 13 loss on Monday Night Football.

After a hard fought battle in Week 12 against the superior New England Patriots, the New York Jets had higher expectations heading into their matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. They were set to play a Colts’ team that has some major holes all around their roster in front of a national audience. Yes, the Colts vs Jets was a complete and utter disaster to watch.

Despite the slightly raised expectations, things went south very quickly for Gang Green. A pair of touchdowns from Colts tight end Dwayne Allen jump started them on their way to a 41-10 victory. It marked an extreme low point in what has been a very disappointing season for Todd Bowles‘ Jets.

When Richard and Justin discussed this lousy effort from the Jets, the main theme that came up was the appalling lack of effort from Gang Green. Both co-hosts made sure to criticize the roster for the lack of fire on a national stage.

This led to major criticism of Bowles as all his failure to get the team motivated was evident once again. Richard and Justin also made sure to weigh in on what the future holds for Bowles after such a poor season.

Some other key factors from the game were discussed as well. This included the poor play of the offensive line, Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s terrible decision making, and the Jets’ inability to cover receivers and tight ends in the passing game.

The next portion of the podcast entailed Richard and Justin breaking down the Giants’ disappointing loss to the Steelers. It was definitely interesting to hear them compare the respective situations for both New York teams.
