Robby Anderson finds some perspective after returning from ankle injury

November 26, 2018

Robby Anderson didn’t make a tangible impact in the Jets’ 27-13 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, but he did find perspective. Anderson, who had missed two of the past three games with an ankle injury, finished with just two receptions for 22 yards on five targets.

“I’m thankful,” Anderson said. “Having to deal with that injury, it gave me a chance to get my mind in a better place and made me appreciate things a little bit more. I was going through frustrations and getting mad about things I couldn’t control. So, it gave me a chance to sit back and reevaluate things. I feel like I (grew) as a man… and took some more steps.”

“Even though things didn’t come out how we wanted (Sunday), it just felt real good to realize that I’m still living my dream and be back out there,” Anderson said. “I was just very appreciative today. I wish we would have won, but it was a very humbling experience. It felt great to be back out there.”

JETS PASS ON RUN GAME

The Jets dialed up 50 pass plays and only 12 runs against a Patriots defense that allowed 150 yards in their previous game against the Titans. Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates dialed up nearly four times as many pass plays (23) as runs (6) in a first half that was deadlocked at 10-10. Eli McGuire and Isaiah Crowell had six carries for just 13 yards in the first half before finishing with a combined 49 yards on 12 carries.

“If the run game’s there, we’re going to run the ball,” wide receiver Jermaine Kearse said. “If it’s not and we’re going to be a little bit successful in the pass game, we’re going to do that. I don’t think we have a (pre-determined) idea of exactly how the game’s going to go.”

IT’S OFFENSIVE

The Jets allowed at least 400 yards for a fifth time this season… Gang Green didn’t register a sack and had only one tackle for loss… Jamal Adams had team highs in solo tackles (seven) and pass break-ups (three).

Rookie tight end Chris Herndon had a season-high seven receptions (for 57 yards)… The Jets converted six third downs (6 of 14) after converting just eight during their previous four losses…

GOLDEN BOOT

Jason Myers became the first kicker in NFL history to make five 55+ yard field goals in one season. His 55-yarder with three seconds left in the second quarter tied the game at 10-10 entering halftime.

TOM TERRIFIC

Tom Brady became the all-time leader in passing yards (including the postseason) by passing Peyton Manning.

INJURY REPORT

Gang Green’s inactives included Sam Darnold (foot), OL James Carpenter (shoulder), WR Deontay Burnett, S Marcus Maye (shoulder/thumb), WR Rishard Matthews, CB Derrick Jones and OLB Jeremiah Attaochu.

Carpenter’s absence prompted the Jets to move Spencer long from center to left guard. Jonotthan Harrison started at center.
