Jets FitzMagic Ends In Buffalo
The New York Jets just couldn't get over its old fling in Rex Ryan on Sunday. The team held its own playoff fate going into their game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. In the end it would be too much for them to handle.
The Jets would leave Ralph Wilson Stadium with a 22-17 defeat, a team not heading to the playoffs, a Muhammed Wilkerson with a broken leg, and a team back at square one with its quarterback dilemma.
You can blame the loss on bad reffing if you want, or the shanked punt, even the missed field goals but, you would be wrong. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three fourth quarter interceptions. Even if head coach Todd Bowles disagrees, the game was too big for the Jets. "I don't think it was too big for them," said coach Todd Bowles, disagreeing. "But at the same time, we've got to play smarter than that."Fitzpatrick has failed to make the playoffs in 11 seasons, and Marshall has not advanced in his 10 seasons. Fitzpatrick's first interception, also happened to be his first red-zone interception of the season.
There's no denying the Jets had a major turnaround this season, from what Rex Ryan's last few seasons looked like. In the end though it all ended the same. The New York Jets making poor decisions, and not doing enough to get into the big games.
