The New York Jets are looking for their first win of the 2019 regular season when they head to The Linc on Sunday for the Week 5 matchup against the Eagles. Get a summary of the New York Jets vs. Philadelphia Eagles football game. Fresh off a big Thursday night win over the Packers, Doug Pederson and the Eagles are looking to build on their 202 season.
The game started out slow, but the Jets grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second quarter. The Eagles followed that up with a touchdown to give themselves a 7-3 lead headed into the locker room. The Eagles would answer first in the second half with a field goal to go up 10-3.Late in the third quarter, the Jets got back into the game with a five-yard rushing touchdown from Kevin Long. The game should’ve been tied heading to the fourth quarter, but Pat Leahy missed the PAT. The Jets stayed behind 10-9, and the offense failed to get on the board again.
Instead, second-year quarterback Richard Todd was in way over his head. He was 13-30 for 100 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. The Jets running game was even worse. Their leading rusher was Scott Dierking who had 25 yards on seven carries.
All the Eagles and quarterback Ron Jaworski had to do was protect the ball to win the game. Therefore, they leaned on running back Wilbert Montgomery, who had 103 rushing yards on 22 attempts and two touchdowns.
The Jets managed to put up just 150 yards of total offense. This was as bad a game as the Jets had played in what was an awful 1977 season.
These two teams last faced off during the regular season back in 2015, and the Eagles won on the road 24-17. The last time the Jets played the Eagles in The Linc was in 2011, when Philly won in a 45-19 blowout.
There is a lot of familiarity between these two teams and, particularly, the personnel. Not only did they play each other in the preseason — in a game that ended early due to weather — but Eagles’ No. 2 quarterback Josh McCown formerly played for the Jets in 2017 and 2018, and Philly’s new Defensive Special Assistant, Matt Burke, was the Defensive Coordinator under Adam Gase in Miami the past two seasons.
With or without Sam Darnold, beating a good Philadelphia Eagles team is a Herculean task. It doesn’t help that the history doesn’t favor the New York Jets against Philly. Their 0-10 record against them stands as the longest winless streak against a single team in Jets history.
On top of that, the Jets have made this as hard on themselves as possible. Darnold saw the lion’s share of first-team reps in practice this week. This means Luke Falk hasn’t had much, if any, meaningful work with the first team in two weeks.
All odds point to New York losing a fourth-straight game to open the year and an 11th straight to the Eagles. That being said, nothing is impossible in the NFL and the history between the Jets and Eagles has shown that anything is possible when these two teams get together.This is a tale as old as time for the Jets. Gang Green came into the game with a 4-8 record, with the Eagles sporting a 4-7-1 record. These were two of the worst teams in the NFL going head-to-head for the first time ever.
Joe Namath was out with an injury and the Jets turned to Al Woodall at quarterback. This was start No. 5 out of the six Woodall was to make that year. As one would expect, the Jets avoided throwing the ball much early in the game. They instead relied heavily on running back Emerson Boozer, to great effect.
Meanwhile, the defense completely fell apart. By the end of the third quarter, the Jets had fallen behind 24-20. The Jets defense held strong in the final quarter, but the offense was only able to put up three more points.
Overall, Woodall was 11-29 passing for 160 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, while Boozer rushed for 160 yards on 21 carries. It’s just another example in a long line of games where the Jets shot themselves in the foot.
There isn’t much to say about this game. The Jets were completely steamrolled by themselves. They came into the matchup with a 3-10 record against the 4-9 Eagles, expecting a close game just like the one in
In 1978, both the Jets and Eagles had potential playoff aspirations. The Jets came into the game with a 6-4 record, with the Eagles possessing a .500 record at 5-5. Unlike in 1977, both teams had a lot on the line here. The Jets were without Richard Todd, who was out with a broken collarbone. It was up to Matt Robinson to lead the Jets to victory. They had a 4-2 record with Robinson at quarterback the past four weeks.
The Jets jumped out to a quick 17-0 nothing lead early in the second quarter behind rushing and receiving touchdowns by Boozer and a 34-yard field goal. The Eagles would cut the lead to just 10 before the half when Roman Gabriel found Don Zimmerman for a two-yard touchdown pass.
Still, with a 10 point lead over a bad team at the half, and a dominant performance by their rushing game, the Jets seemed poised to win this game.
As often happens with the Jets, everything fell apart. New York all of sudden began to rely on Woodall to throw the ball and avoided the successful running game.
