The Chargers snap the Jets’ (3)three-game winning streak on Monday night.

The Los Angeles Chargers defeated the New York Jets 27–6 at MetLife Stadium on Monday night, moving their record to.500. The Jets’ winning run of three games was broken as they failed to score a touchdown.

In their largest victory of the year, the Chargers defeated the terrible Chicago Bears 30–13 last week. The Chargers took on the Jets on Monday night, who have one of the best defences in the league and victories over Jalen Hurts and Josh Allen.

With a dominant defensive line play that kept the Jets at bay and an explosive first quarter that put the Chargers up by 14 points, they won their second straight game.

Ekeler had a strong game, accumulating 47 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. But the Chargers (4-4) will need Monday’s drops to be an anomaly because Ekeler led the team in receptions the previous season and his catches frequently set off big plays.

With 10,000 career receiving yards, Keenan Allen created history. On a leaping catch in the fourth quarter, the wide receiver made it to the mark. With eight receptions for 77 yards, he concluded the game.

In the last two games, Joey Bosa has accumulated 3.5 sacks. Bosa missed the Chargers’ next game against the Las Vegas Raiders due to a fractured left big toe sustained during the team’s victory against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3. Until the Chargers’ Week 8 victory over the Bears, a team he had one sack against, he hadn’t appeared like the same player.

Bosa had the second-most sacks of his career on Monday, showing that he was in better shape than ever. Tuli Tuipulotu and Khalil Mack, on the other hand, each had two. In the final minute of the game, they prevented the Jets from reaching the end zone. Wilson was sacked eight times by the Los Angeles defense.

New York Jets

The Jets’ three-game winning streak was ended as a result of three turnovers. Zach Wilson, the quarterback, fumbled two of the three lost balls.

While New York’s offense outscored the Chargers, amassing 270 yards as opposed to Los Angeles’ 191, the defense of the city sacked Justin Herbert five times.

In the NFL, things happen quickly. The Jets were seen as tough overachievers enjoying a good life in their post-Rodgers world during a three-game winning streak. They appear to be a pretend contender now that Zach Wilson is having trouble at quarterback.

The Jets (4-4) continued their poor third-down performance (3-of-17), gave up eight sacks, and lost three fumbles. They squandered yet another excellent display of defense, which totaled five sacks.

The Jets’ narrative has been this for the previous two seasons. Just eight touchdowns have been scored by the offense in eight games. One-play drives accounted for four of those touchdowns, one of which seemed to have been a late-game touchdown allowed by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Another year could see an explosion in the offense-defense imbalance that destroyed the previous campaign. If the Jets win out, Rodgers, who was hoping to return late in the season, may have to set his sights on 2024.

Chargers vs. Jets highlights

Derius Davis’ punt return touchdown, Austin Ekeler’s two scores, and a defense that was eager to sack opponents helped the Chargers

The Chargers defense forced the Jets to go 3-for-17 on third downs and held New York to a 3.5-yard average per play.

Jets are kept out of the end zone by Chargers defense:- In the first quarter, the Chargers defense only gave up 52 yards and had one sack in addition to forcing and recovering two fumbles. The tone for the remainder of the game was set by their performance in the first period.

Los Angeles allowed a field goal in the second quarter and one more field goal in the third, but that was it. The six points represented the fewest the Chargers defense allowed all season.
