The Jets’ Offense Sputters Without Jones

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 17 — There was a hole in the offensive backfield, a haze obscuring Chad Pennington’s vision and an altogether messy look to the Jets’ offense Friday night.
 
Just five days after Thomas Jones, their No. 1 running back, went down with a calf injury, the Jets found out how much they might miss him for the next couple of weeks. They struggled to adapt to his absence at Giants Stadium, losing to the Minnesota Vikings, 37-20.
 
A week ago, with Jones alongside him in the backfield, Pennington did not attempt a pass in a 31-16 victory against the Atlanta Falcons. Without Jones, Pennington passed early and often and errantly. He completed 7 of 10 passes, for 40 yards, but two of his misses were interceptions, and both were returned for Vikings touchdowns in the first quarter.
