Both nickel back Buster Skrine and right tackle Brandon Shell will miss the New York Jets game against the struggling Atlanta Falcons.
What do you do when you blow a 14-point fourth quarter lead highlighted by one of the dumbest throws in NFL history?
Well, you do everything in your power to stay resilient, via Brian Costello of the New York Post.
“We’re resilient, and like I said the other day, it was bitter taste, but we’ve moved on,” quarterback Josh McCown said. “Everything is still in front of us, and let’s go out and get the next one. It’s the same mentality we would have if we won the game.”
New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles focused on mistake-free football all week long — especially staying away from unwarranted penalties.
“Just finish and play mistake-free football,” was Bowles week-long mission.
The Jets will need to stay true to those words if they’re to snap a nagging two-game losing streak (that actually feels like four thanks to the variety of each loss). While the Atlanta Falcons come in at an average 3-3 having lost three straight, they’re still loaded with talent as the NFC champions.
Both Buster Skrine and Brandon Shell will miss the game due to injury. Muhammad Wilkerson is officially listed as questionable.
