Misplaced and listless in loss to Dolphins
Grading the Jets after their 24-0 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.
There aren’t any phrases to explain how unhealthy the Jets offense, which punted 10 occasions and didn’t attain the top zone as soon as, was on Sunday. Adam Gase’s unit was atrocious. It padded the statistics within the fourth quarter, however didn’t convert its first 12 third-down tries and had six three-and-outs. QB Joe Flacco (21 of 44, 186 yards, 1 INT, 50.0 score) did nothing in his second recreation as a starter. He was sacked 3 times and when he tried to throw deep couldn’t set his ft as a result of he was below strain. The Jets rushed for 115 yards of their first recreation post-Le’Veon Bell.
I’m undecided if Miami took its foot off the fuel or the Jets protection acquired higher as the sport went on, however the unit improved within the second half after giving up three first-half touchdowns. Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (18 of 27, 191 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INT, 93.3 score) regarded like he may throw for six touchdowns early. CB Brian Poole made an enormous play earlier than halftime to choose off Fitzpatrick and S Marcus Maye had an acrobatic interception within the second half.
This had been one of many few vibrant spots for the Jets, however not on Sunday. They’d two killer penalties on particular groups that damage subject place early within the recreation. Dolphins kick returner Jakeem Grant had six returns for 83 yards. Punter Braden Mann could not have the ability to stroll Monday after punting the ball 10 occasions. He additionally was pressured to make a deal with once more. Even kicker Sam Ficken missed his first subject purpose of the season.
Adam Gase and Gregg Williams deserve one another proper now. Neither has his unit performing nicely. Gase had no solutions … once more. Jets CEO Christopher Johnson must assume lengthy and laborious about whether or not making a change is the appropriate transfer. This isn’t getting any higher. The Jets regarded misplaced and listless Sunday. That displays poorly on the top coach.
