The Jets secondary was very inconsistent in this game and needs to play better if the team is going to make a Super Bowl run. Antonio Cromartie did some good things . . .

On Denver’s first offensive play, Eddie Royal beat Drew Coleman for a gain of 10 on the left side. On the next play, Drew Coleman caused a fumble on running back Knowshon Moreno, and it was recovered by Darrelle Revis.

Early in the second quarter, Jabar Gaffney beat Coleman for a gain of 16 over the middle. Two plays later, Darrelle Revis was beat by Gaffney, also for a gain of 16, over the middle. On the next play, Drew Coleman whiffed on Royal, on a gain of 13 on a reverse to the left side. Later on this drive, Revis was beat for a 27-yard gain down the left sideline by Gaffney.

Revis had a terrific PD on a fade down the left sideline to Gaffney in the middle of the second. Late in the first half, Revis rocked Royal, causing an incompletion. Late in the first half, Revis had perfect coverage on an incompletion to Gaffney in the end zone.

Late in the third quarter, Revis was beat for a touchdown on the deep right side by DeMaryius Thomas. It was a great catch. In the fourth quarter, Revis terrific PD on a fade down the right sideline to Thomas.

Coleman had a PD on Royal on a curl route on the left side to end a late first half drive

Antonio Cromartie did some good work on WR Brandon Lloyd. On Denver’s second possession, they attempted a deep pass down the left sideline, but “Cro” was in Lloyd’s hip pocket, and the pass was unsuccessful. Early in the second quarter, Cromartie had a PD on a curl route to Lloyd on the right side.

Cromartie had perfect position on Lloyd down the left side, and broke up a pass to Lloyd deep down the sideline. Early in the third quarter, Cromartie got called for ticky-tack pass interference down the deep left side on Lloyd. It wasn’t a good call.

Lloyd beat “Cro” down the right sideline for a gain of 29 yards, and Jim Leonhard got called for a ridiculous unnecessary roughness call on the play. On the first play of a mid-fourth quarter drive, Jim Leonhard was beat on a crossing route for 19 yards by Lloyd. It wasn’t bad coverage, but a great catch.

Eric Smith had a terrific PD on deep pass to Thomas late in the game on the left side.

Brodney Pool had five tackles.
