Austin Seferian-Jenkins isn’t counting on his instant-replay luck changing anytime soon. The Jets tight end, who has had two touchdown calls overturned against him, won’t be hoping for that to change if it comes down to another replay. He expects the worst. “Odds are, it will never turn for me,” Seferian-Jenkins said on Friday after practice. “It’s never going to turn if we’re going off odds. Honestly, they’re bang-bang plays. The refs, they made the call on the field: Touchdown. The people in the official [replay review] box made a different call. Everyone’s got jobs, and no one’s perfect.” It’s hard to blame him for feeling this way. Twice, what looked like sure touchdowns were reversed, last week against the Panthers and Oct. 15 against the Patriots, both coming at critical junctures of defeats. Seferian-Jenkins said he has moved past those calls, and won’t be stressed over potential reviews the next time he scores a touchdown, but if it comes down to it, he’ll be preparing for the worst. “That’s where my head is at on that,” said Seferian-Jenkins, who has caught a career-high 41 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns. He did say he needs to “do a better job of finishing” and leave “no room for judgment.” In the loss to the Panthers, Seferian-Jenkins also let a touchdown pass in the right corner of the end zone go through his hands, a rare drop for him.
