Not many New York Jets fans had high hopes for a successful 2021 season. Instead, they longed for progress over the course of time from such a young roster led by a rookie quarterback.
But ahead of Week 12, that progress hasn’t exactly presented itself. The Jets sport the worst defense in the league and Zach Wilson hasn’t played since Week 7 due to a PCL sprain.
As a result, the team is 2-8 and has lost three straight games with Thanksgiving arriving.
Not everything can be described as disastrous though — there are actually a few things the Jets and their fans could be thankful for when looking at the big picture.
