There is nothing wrong with the New York Jets' defense. I wish I could say the same for their offense.
it's that unit that has exactly two touchdowns in its last 45 possessions, and it's that unit that committed two costly mistakes Monday -- one that turned a sure New York scoring opportunity into a Houston field goal and the other that ended the contest in a 23-17 loss to Houston.
Make no mistake, the Jets hung tough. But they hung tough because of their defense; not their offense. The Jets twice held Houston to field goals after the Texans drove deep into New York territory and gave the club a chance it wasn't supposed to have.
But the offense couldn't produce the points when it had to, and where's the mystery? The Jets are out of playmakers and tried to patch things together with an array of backs, Tim Tebow and guys named Cumberland, Schilens Gates and Kerley as receivers.
In the end, it didn't matter. Houston had too much talent and too much Arian Foster, and the grind has begun for New York. The Jets just dropped their third game in four weeks and look to be headed down, down, down, with nobody but their defense to rescue them.
And, as we just saw, that's not enough.
