Packers force three turnovers
The Jets have done a lot right on offense this season, there’s no doubt about that. New York ranks ninth in the NFL in passing offense, averaging 259 yards through the air per game.
However, for everything the Jets have done right offensively, they have also turned it over far too often. New York has turned the ball over nine times, with five interceptions and four fumbles. Three of those interceptions came from Joe Flacco, but Zach Wilson has also been unable to protect the ball, having thrown two picks in as many games this season.
If Green Bay makes the necessary adjustments to become more aggressive defensively, it could lead to some opportunities for turnovers.
What New York has done well is forcing turnovers defensively. The Jets’ turnover differential is at zero, with the defense wiping out the offense’s mistakes. New York has forced seven interceptions and two fumbles.
But for the Jets to prove they are serious playoff contenders this season, they must learn to protect the football better.
The Packers are typically good at forcing turnovers, but they only have four to start the year. They almost had two against the Giants, one on defense and another on special teams.
That changes against the Jets. Up against a young quarterback, the Packers force three turnovers in Week 6.
