Jets Get Diverted by Eagles 45-19
The New York Jets had their playoff flight plan delayed as the Philadelphia Eagles rout Gang Green 45-19.
The Eagles had a huge day offensively as LeSean McCoy ran in for three touchdowns on his afternoon with his 102 yards on the ground. Brent Celek had a break-out game with 156 yards receiving including a touchdown. The Jets have had issues with opponent tight ends and that trend continued on Sunday.
The Jets simply made too many mistakes and turnovers. The Jets had 4 crucial turnovers, as it all began with a fumble by Mark Sanchez being ran back for the first score of the game by the Eagles. Sanchez was 15/26 throwing for 150 yards, throwing 2 touchdowns and 2 big interceptions.
Gang Green moves on to next weekend’s big holiday match as they will face their city rivals, the New York Giants as the loser of that game will likely be eliminated from their own playoff hunt.
