You either have a franchise quarterback or you don’t.
The charger has theirs.
The 0-10 jet has 6 more losses.
The dream survived and moved forward on Sunday: Justin Herbert vs. Trevor Lawrence, now it will be a fair fight that everyone wants to see.
Gallant Joe Flacco didn’t stop fighting or throwing, but too little or too late is by no means the secret to victory.
Flacco somehow had a last chance to try to overcome the wonder of Justin Herbert (37-49, 366 yards, 3 TD).
The Chargers were in the midst of their unforgivable chalk work.
32 yards from the last chance, the chance to connect the game.
Last chance to be Joe Cool.
Incomplete at the goal line of Denzel Mimes, a hand fight with Tevaon Campbell.
The safety of giving up with one second left ended it, charger 34, jet 28.
Perhaps it would have been a fairer fight if Flacco had acted against Kiddy’s army in Jets’ secondary and passed the molasses-filled rusher. Maybe.
But it wasn’t the time for Jets fans to become Flacco’s wackers.
And now Sam Darnold is the last to change the story at the end of Lawrence and Justin Fields, and his distressed Jets career, if his shoulders allow him to return against Tua Tagovairoa and the dolphins. Get 6 chances.
Herbert made it look like a child’s play: a 277-yard pass and two TDs in half-time. Pitch and catch Keenan Allen (16-145-1 TD) whenever you like.
Only if Flacco didn’t throw a miserable pick 6.
Only if he took a shot on his receiver, any receiver in the first half.
Flacco got off the canvas in the second half of the opening and allowed a third down before hitting Breshad Perriman with a 49-yard TD pass against Casey Hayward.
Herbert yawned and rolled to the left with a third goal, letting Allen play a 10-yard TD against another Lamar Jackson. It was 31-13.
Flacco began swinging for a home run, and Denzel Mimes was forced to catch 27 yards and interfere with a 19-yard pass, leaving Frank Gore’s 80th career rush TD 31-19. His 10-yard TD pass to Chris Hardan was Chargers 34 and Jets 26 with four minutes remaining.
It began with such a promise to Bert’s blunder.
Kalen Ballage drags on the second carry.
Tarrell Basham bag.
Henry Anderson’s punt block.
2 yards La’Mical Perine TD.
The first of two missed Samficken PAT. Do you want everything?
Marcus May forced Allen to fumble in NYJ 1!
And that’s all she writes.
Flacco presented Campbell with a pick 6 from his end zone with a flat, lazy throw on the right for Jamison Clouder.
Flacco’s second property: Three and Out.
Flacco’s third property: Three and Out.
By that time, Herbert had found Mike Williams with a 39-yard TD against Arthur Moret — May clashed with him — and Tyrone Johnson with the overmatched LB Neville Hewitt. With coverage I had a 2 yard TD shortly after the 54 yard connection to Johnson.
0 to 10. Trevor Lawrence’s dream survives and moves forward.
