Petty 'confident' after first start of season (0:36)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Interesting post-game reaction from coach Todd Bowles, who spoke of a bright future for the team. It's out of character for him to discuss the big picture. It almost sounded like Bowles, whose job could be in jeopardy, was making an appeal to ownership. "Obviously, this is going to turn," he said. "I believe that we have a good core group." He added, "I️ don't worry about how many we lost in a row. I know how we lost and I know why we lost. We're fighting. As long as we've got fight and we correct the small things, we'll be fine."

New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine knows that his team needs to improve on their play in the fourth quarter, but believes in their roster and the brotherhood behind it.

LB Darron Lee was Mr. Positivity after the Jets' seventh loss in nine games. "The future for this team? I mean, dominance," he said. "If you can't see that now, you better heed warning now. I feel like this whole season will be a warning shot, just of what's coming. Because once everybody [on the Jets] all figures it out, it's over.

Jets QB Bryce Petty struggled against the Saints' standard rush. He was 7-for-21 for 62 yards and two interceptions against four or fewer pass rushers, per ESPN Stats & Information — the third-worst completion percentage on such throws this season. He had four batted passes by Cameron Jordan, tied for the most by any player in the last 10 seasons.

Todd Bowles: We'll keep fighting

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles discussed Bryce Petty's performance at quarterback as well as his team's effort against the New Orleans Saints.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Todd Bowles' assessment of QB Bryce Petty was rather blunt. Referring to Petty's performance in the red zone, the Jets' coach said, "He just didn't make any plays. Plays that we needed to make to win the game, he didn't make. He'll get better at that."

Jets coach Todd Bowles declined to say whether benched DE Mo Wilkerson will rejoin the team next week. He called it an "internal matter." Wilkerson was benched for showing up late to a meeting last Friday, the second time in two weeks he was disciplined for tardiness.

Jets coach Todd Bowles, who gave a lukewarm evaluation of Bryce Petty, said Petty will start next week.

Leonard Williams has a concussion, according to the Jets.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets fought hard, but ultimately lost for the seventh time in nine games. Not that there was much suspense, but they were officially eliminated from the playoffs. They're 5-9, but I don't think there's any doubt the team still is playing hard for Todd Bowles. That matters to ownership, which will decide his fate in two weeks.

Jets DE Leo Williams is being evaluated for a head injury.

After a terrible start, the Jets have stopped the Saints on three straight possessions, not counting a kneel down at the end of the first half. The Jets adjusted nicely, figuring out a way to stop running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram from killing them in the passing game. We've got a ballgame.

Surprisingly, the Jets trail by only one possession at halftime. The biggest key: QB Bryce Petty, making his first start of the year, hasn't had any negative plays: No turnovers, no sacks. If he keeps it up, the Jets might be able to hang around for a while.

The Jets made their first takeaway in four games — an interception by DE Leonard Williams. The Big Cat, a slump buster. Just like everyone figured, right?

Saints RB Alvin Kamara with the TD reception on an angle route in the red zone. So quick out of the break. That's tough on the LB in coverage. Kamara now has 66 total yards on seven touches.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Saints: Three possessions, three scores. The Jets can't cover the Saints running backs, as Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara already have combined for 126 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets have found something that works against the Saints — the running game. They ran it 10 times on a 12-play TD drive, with Bilal Powell leading the way. They need to keep pounding the rock. The Saints' run defense has had some issues this season, and the Jets seem to have found a weakness.
