Jets Week 5 Inactive List: Jets Take Flight to London to Face Falcons
Following their impressive Week 4 overtime victory against the Tennessee Titans, the New York Jets now travel across the pond to London to face the 1-3 Atlanta Falcons.
The Green & White are 1-0 in International play, with their sole win coming in 2015 against the Dolphins. Zach Wilson will look to continue his stellar performance, adding wide receiver Elijah Moore back into the fold after clearing the concussion protocol. Jeff Smith remains out with a concussion, so he and TE Tyler Kroft, who is dealing with a chest injury, did not travel with the team. Undrafted rookie tight end Kenny Yeboah was elevated off the practice squad in place of Kroft.
Atlanta Falcons dominating the New York Jets in London
The Atlanta Falcons are beating the New York Jets soundly in London, Sunday morning despite coming into the game without Russell Gage or Calvin Ridley. It is a game many pundits picked the Jets in after their upset win over the Titans.
Halfway through this pick is looking very shaky, aside from one Jets drive this game has been all Atlanta. If you didn’t know Ryan was without his two best receivers you wouldn’t be able to tell. The veteran quarterback has been surgical and distributed the ball to whomever Atlanta sends out to line up.
Matt Ryan threw early touchdowns to his tight ends Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst giving both players much-needed early momentum. Hurst dropped his touchdown in the endzone re-catching it as he fell to the ground.
