New York Jets tight end Ryan Griffin believes their offense is coming together “at the right time” after second straight victory.
Look no further New York Jets fans, your team is on a winning streak. After coming away with just one victory through their first eight games, the Jets have won their last two matchups against the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, respectively.
They’re now 3-7, with all three victories coming against NFC East teams (they defeated the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6).
The Jets have gained 694 total yards in the last two games combined, with 503 of them coming through the air. Quarterback Sam Darnold has, therefore, really stepped up, combining for five touchdowns to just one interception in the pair of victories.
“It’s a lot of hard work in practice,” Griffin said, per Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post. “When [Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis], it was tough because we missed out on a lot. I was new. It’s a new offense. Sam being out, it got off to a slow start. We’re coming around and jelling at the right time.”
Griffin caught five balls in the win over the Redskins for 109 yards and a touchdown. He’s been a key factor for this offense in the absence of Chris Herndon, having caught 25 balls for 269 yards and four scores.
After last week’s win over the Giants, Darnold mentioned that they still had a chance at the postseason if they won-out. So far, so good.
