Lamarcus Joyner of the Jets slams a game-changing call: ‘Just personal.’

The Jets’ defense was in command for the majority of the first half until safety Lamarcus Joyner was called for pass interference.
With 4:35 remaining in the second quarter and Baltimore leading 3-0, the call was made. Joyner appeared to collide with Ravens WR Demarcus Robinson. The flag moved the ball 32 yards from the Ravens’ 38 yard line to the Jets’ 30 yard line. Lamar Jackson connected with Devin Duvernay for a 25-yard touchdown and a 10-0 lead three plays later.
“I was playing football,” Joyner explained to The Washington Post. “It’s not like I was going man-to-man with him. The quarterback released the ball into the air. I beat the opponent to the point of attack, and we collided. I’m still looking for the ball, and the officials ruled it out. At that point, it’s just a matter of personal preference – “Do you feel like throwing a flag today?”
Outside of a few spectacular Ravens plays, Joyner and the defense believed they played well.
“It reminded me today that we are not the same Jets,” Joyner said. “I honestly believe we performed admirably against a playoff club.” Who knows where the game is right now if those mistakes and explosives are removed.”

Garrett Wilson, the Jets’ rookie receiver who caught five passes for 52 yards and flashed some of his first-round skill, was disappointed with his performance.
“I enjoy playing, and I put a lot of pressure on myself, and this was not what we wanted to accomplish,” Wilson explained. “This is not how I wanted to go out and play my first true NFL game.” So I’m not happy about anything that happened out there.”
“Taking advantage of my opportunities,” Wilson stated when asked what he learned from his NFL debut. I feel like I know what my role is, so it’s just a matter of coming in and executing right away and making all those plays — whether it’s my first play off the bench or my eighth.
“I hold myself to a high level, and I don’t want to make excuses for anything.”
Jets coach Robert Saleh was not enthusiastic about regaining LT Duane Brown. Brown was placed on injured reserve by the Jets on Saturday and might return in four weeks.
“We’re hoping to get him back,” Saleh remarked. “We’ll see how his rehabilitation progresses.”
On third down, the Jets were 2-for-14 on Sunday. They went 1-for-14 against the Bills in the 2021 season finale, giving them a total of 3-for-28 in their last two games.
The Jets have now lost 13 consecutive games in September, an NFL record. QB Joe Flacco’s 59 pass attempts are tied for sixth most in franchise history and the most since Mark Sanchez attempted 59 against the Giants on

December 24, 2011, in the legendary Victor Cruz game. Vinny Testaverde set the record on December 24, 2000, with 69 attempts against the Ravens.

Hero
Even after a shaky first half, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was far too much to handle, throwing for 213 yards and three touchdowns and converting a third-and-8 while the game was still tight.

The Jets’ offensive line allowed 10 QB hurries and three sacks, with reshuffled left tackle George Fant (two sacks, one holding penalty) being more to blame than third-string rookie right tackle Max Mitchell in his NFL debut.
Unknown hero
Devin Duvernay of the Ravens had two career touchdown catches on 73 targets entering the game, and he added two more on his first four targets in his third season.
Important information
Joe Flacco had 59 pass attempts, the most by a Jets quarterback since Mark Sanchez had 59 in a game-changing defeat to the Giants on December 24, 2011.
