Through two preseason games, the Jets have looked strong on both sides of the ball.
Sam Darnold and the first-team offense have shown efficiency moving the ball down the field, and Gregg Williams' defense proved on Thursday that they can bring the heat on opposing quarterbacks.
One glaring issue for the Jets through these two games, though, has been their kicking game.
After Chandler Catanzaro surprisingly retired following a rough opener against the Giants, Taylor Bertolet had a night to forget against the Falcons in the Jets' 22-10 win.
The Jets' kicker missed two extra points, and while he did hit a 49-yard field goal, he surely didn't give Jets fans a lot of confidence in the place kicking position heading towards the regular season.
"Just gotta do a better job," Bertolet said after the game. "My job is to put it through the uprights."
What makes this preseason's kicking debacle all the more frustrating is that the Jets had a Pro Bowl kicker in Jason Myers, who they let walk in free agency.
Now, Bertolet is trying to end the revolving door and earn the job, though Thursday wasn't his best effort.
"I'm trying to be the kicker, not just a guy competing for the job," Bertolet said. "There's pressure as a kicker. It's part of your job, is handling this…. When you miss, you have to show resiliency and bounce back."
After the game, Adam Gase said that the coaching staff would break down the film to see what went wrong on Bertolet's extra points. The Jets are now just 1-5 on extra points through two preseason games.
"Right now, this is where we're at," Gase said. "This is who we're going with, until we have those discussions. When we get back in the morning, we'll be able to watch film. You want to make sure the operation was right, what were the reasons for the misses?
"We'll keep working on it."
