The Jets came right back, though, with two 1-yard touchdown runs by Shonn Greene to take a 14-7 lead.
The Chargers opened the second half with a 37-yard touchdown catch by Alexander that gave San Diego a 17-14 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish.
‘‘Offensively, you’re not beating anybody when you play like that,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘It’s just hard to put into words. You get sacked 11 times, it’s extremely frustrating. I expected a lot better, but that never happened.’’
NOTES: The Jets held a moment of silence before the game for the victims of the Connecticut shootings last Friday, and had banners on the sidelines that read ‘‘S.H.E.S’’ for Sandy Hook Elementary School. ... Chargers rookie S Brandon Taylor was carted off the field in the third quarter after injuring his right knee. Jets DB Ellis Lankster left in the second half with a concussion.
