New York Teams

The Jets should give refunds to the fans that came out to watch this slop. They trail at half, 24-3, a sorry display of ineptitude on both sides of the ball. Dumb penalties, busted coverages, bad blocking, etc. Todd Bowles should play Bryce Petty in the second half. It can't get any worse.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen has more TD catches in one half (three) than the Jets' tight ends have in the last 27 games (at least).

Allen hauls in third TD for Colts (0:41)

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

That's three touchdown grabs in the first half for Colts TE Dwayne Allen. With the Jets playing a single-high scheme, Andrew Luck gave a quick look off to hold the FS and then delivered a good ball on the back-shoulder throw. Colts jump to a 24-3 lead over the Jets in the second quarter.

Dwayne Allen's three TDs in the first half are two more than all Jets tight ends have had since the start of last season.

Kristaps Porzingis missed 9 of 10 shots in the first half against Sacramento last night. He finished with 15 points (6-for-18), 14 rebounds & 4 blocks in NYK's win. Here, he talked about how he approaches the defending when he's struggling with his shot:

The Jets cut the Colts' lead to 14-3, but even that was tarnished. They had a first down at the Colts' 13, but went backward in the red zone. RT Breno Giacomini was flagged for unnecessary roughness. That makes three personal fouls. Total lack of discipline.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets played with poor defensive eye discipline and lacked communication in the secondary during the first quarter. That created two easy TD passes from Andrew Luck to Dwayne Allen. A TE delay/throwback and a 7 (corner) route. Colts lead 14-0 at the start of the second quarter.

The Jets aren't getting beat physically, they're getting beat mentally. That falls on Todd Bowles. Missed blocked, busted coverages, you name it.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

Teams falling behind by 14 points in the first quarter are 2-16 this season. Generally not advisable.

Allen wide open again for second TD (0:42)

This has the makings of an epic meltdown by the Jets. There's a "Butt Fumble" feel in the stadium.

The Jets already are getting booed by the sparse crowd -- and deservedly so. The offense has two three-and-outs and the defense looks lost. Not a good look for Todd Bowles. This team is not ready to play.
