Denver — Zach Wilson was hit for the second time in three games on Sunday.
Broncos fired him five times and hit him nine times. It’s easy to put all the responsibilities on the attack line, but it was clear that there were many responsibilities. The receiver wasn’t open, the line didn’t hold the block long enough, and Wilson couldn’t get the ball out fast enough.
“He has to learn that this is the NFL, you have to put out the ball,” said guard Greg Van Roten. “You can’t grab it, play, and try to throw it deep into the field. And we need to protect him better. It starts with us.”
After a major struggle in the first week in Carolina, Rhein showed improvement against the Patriots in the second week. However, the group retreated on Sunday. It’s not just path protection. They also failed to establish a run game (13 rushes, 43 yards).
“I felt anemic in the first half,” Van Roten said.
It’s fair to wonder if this could have a negative impact on young quarterbacks, as Wilson and the attack are suffering so badly.
“I’m not worried,” said Sheldon Rankins of Defensive Harness. “After all, he’s suffering from growth pain with the whole team. Obviously, he’ll be expanded because he’s in the position he’s in and is second in the market we’re in. Everything is a bigger story than the whole team. “
The Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims has been inactive for two consecutive games.
The second round of 2020 picks lost the support of new coach staff and are no longer even on the field. Jets did not have Jamison Crowder, who was again injured in the groin. But that wasn’t a problem for Mim. Jets went with Jeff Smith for the value of his special team against Mimus. They also activated Keeran Cole. Cole had two catches in the game.
Mimus isn’t the only draft topic in 2020 where you can’t find a field. The fourth round pick, La’Mical Perine’s running back, was inactive for three consecutive weeks. On Sunday, Perine was inactive, even though Jets did not have Tevin Coleman, who was inactive due to illness. Jets made Josh Adams active in Perine. Probably because he can play in a special team.
Rookie WR Eliya Moore suffered a concussion in the game. TE Tyler Kroft injured his ribs. … DT Quinnen Williams recorded the first sack of the season and ended the game with 1.5 sack.
