Jets Report Card: New York's failure to close vs. Falcons hurts

Matt Forte of the Jets carries the ball

The losing streak is over. Forte's four carries and seven yards were season-lows, as the former Pro Bowler has not yet reached the end zone this season.

After surviving a miserable day at the Meadowlands for a 25-20 victory over the New York Jets, the Falcons (4-3) were finally able to turn their focus to the NFC South race.

Next up for Atlanta is a more familiar opponent: the NFC South's Carolina Panthers.

Due to a quirk in the schedule, Atlanta is the only team in the league that hasn't played a division foe. "But we're not going to treat this game differently than we treat other games". "They're special because you only get six of 'em".

The New York Jets have lost three-straight games, and tensions appear to be high in their locker room. Twice, New York gained possession deep in Atlanta territory after recovering a botched exchange between Alex Mack and Matt Ryan.

When he went into the store's cooler to retrieve his beverage of choice, the cooler door closed behind him, locking him in. Van Ert reportedly consumed an 18-ounce bottle of Icehouse Beer and three cans of Four Loko , the police report said.

SUPER BOWL HANGOVER?: With Atlanta mired in a three-game slump, some media and fans wondered if the Falcons' season was about to spiral. "It continued to rain the entire game". Ryan, who fumbled away a couple of snaps, called it "some of the hardest conditions I've played in for the length of the game".

The lack of a strong running game remains one of Quinn's top concerns.

NOWHERE TO RUN: With the weather expected to be miserable, the Jets were aiming to run the ball a bunch.

Otherwise, the Falcons were held to 88 yards on 31 carries - an average of just 2.8 yards. "I mean, we're going to handle that". And seeing Jones and Tevin Coleman break loose for 50-plus-yard plays, and having Mohamed Sanu make spectacular catches, is more the type of offensive explosiveness most anticipated from the Falcons coming into the season.

They have yet to play their best game, although the defense certainly elevated its effort against the Jets, particularly against the run. "Just really consistent, everybody doing their job, that was kind of their mantra this week and I thought they really nailed that".
