How does this happen?

How did this happen to the Jets’ defense over and over again?

How could a weapon of his magnitude consistently get this open?

In the Jets 30-10 loss to Dallas, Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb finished with 11 catches for 143 yards.

Look, a player this good is going to get his catches, but the surprising part was how often he was left wide open.

In the first quarter, on first-and-12 from their own 3-yard-line, Dak Prescott hit Lamb on an easy quick slant, between two linebackers, that went for a 31-yard gain.

Early second quarter on third-and-2, Prescott hit Lamb on the left side for a gain of 12. He was wide again.

Late second quarter, on a second-and-9, Prescott hit Lamb for a gain of 20, another play he was pretty open, in back for a corner, and in front of safety.

Early third quarter, on a third-and-14. Prescott hit Lamb for a gain of 15 on the right sideline. He was wide open. How does that even happen? Every defense dreams of a third-and-14. That is what you want. And at the very least, play the sticks so if they get a completion, it’s not for a first down.

Early in the fourth quarter, on a 1st-and-15, Prescott hit Lamb for a gain of 21.

“Look who’s wide open, CeeDee Lamb,” said CBS announcer Jim Nantz,

Why would another team’s top receiver, one of the best in the league, be this wide-open so consistently?
