Jets blow 14-point lead to Bucs after puzzling fourth-and-2 play call

By , Audacy

The New York Jets seemed poised to pull off an unlikely upset over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, but alas, it was too good to be true.

They may have even done it if not for a questionable play-call late in the fourth quarter.

With the Jets leading 24-20 and on the Bucs 7-yard line, they decided to go for it on fourth-and-2 with 2:17 left as a touchdown would put the game out of reach.

But offensive coordinator Mattt LaFleur made a puzzling decision to run a QB sneak with Zach Wilson when the Jets needed two yards.

Wilson came up short and the Bucs took over and Brady took the Bucs 93 yards in 10 plays, finding Cyril Grayson for the game-winning touchdown with 15 seconds remaining.

While many felt the Jets were right to go for it on fourth-and-2, the playcall left everyone dumbfounded.
