Jets Can’t Hold Comeback Lead, Fall to Houston 29-22

2. Trey Bien
But Darnold & Co. came out much better on Drive No. 2, moving 67 yards on 12 plays in 7:22 before stalling at the Texans 8. Sam completed 3 of 6, including a 25-yarder to Robby Anderson, after taking a roughing-the-QB shot to the back from Jadeveon Clowney on the first play of the proceedings. Jason Myers came on like clockwork to hit from 26 yards and tie the score at 3-3. The FG made Myers 31-of-33 overall and 16-of-17 at MetLife.

3. First Big Strike
The Texans drove to another Fairbairn red zone field goal and a 6-3 lead. And the Jets looked like they were game to at least retie it. But Watt notched his sixth forced fumble of the season (tying him for the league lead) when he separated Elijah McGuire from the ball and DE Angele Blackson recovered at the Jets 46. Two plays later, S Darryl Roberts got turned around but Hopkins didn’t, tumbling to the end zone turf with Watson’s 45-yard TD strike and a 13-3 lead with 8:14 left in the first half.

4. Red Zone Redux
The visitors got another Fairbairn field goal, this one from 53 yards out, before the Green & White finally struck paydirt before the first half ended. Darnold moved the Jets from their 17 to his 5-yard on-the-run dart to Robby Anderson for the score. After going five red zone opportunities without scoring a touchdown, the Jets at this point had scored four TDs in their last five RZ forays. Myers missed the extra point, however, so they went in at halftime trailing, 16-9, yet ahead or even in most of the key metrics with 30 minutes to play.
