The Athletic -- Rank: 32
My favorite moment during their loss to the Dolphins came in the fourth quarter. Facing a third-and-4 from the Miami 29, Joe Flacco was overcome with irrational confidence and tried to escape a blitzing defender. It did not go well. He took a sack and lost 28 yards, which is tied for the most by any quarterback on a single play this season. I understand the calls for Adam Gase to be fired. But from an organizational perspective, what's the incentive? Ride it out, lose games, get the No. 1 pick and start over. This team is going to be unwatchable regardless of whether Gase is the head coach or not.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 32
Adam Gase has to be in trouble. This team is a mess and has no prospects of getting better.
USA Today -- Rank: 32
Quickly making case as worst team in NYJ history, no small feat. They've been outscored by 18.3 points per game for a differential of -110, nearly twice as bad as next-worst team (Jags, -56).
ESPN -- Rank: 32
Most impactful injury: QB Sam Darnold
Darnold has missed two starts with a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. The offense, struggling even with Darnold, has bottomed out with Joe Flacco. In 25 possessions, Flacco has led the offense to only one touchdown drive. His lack of mobility and general rust have made him a sitting duck behind a leaky offensive line. It looks like Darnold could miss a third start on Sunday against the Bills. -- Rich Cimini
NFL.com -- Rank: 32
Another week, another embarrassing three hours for the Jets and their long-suffering fan base. This time it was a 24-0 loss to the Dolphins, New York's first blanking by their rivals to the south since the 1982 AFC Championship Game. As the losses mount, it gets increasingly more difficult to understand why management isn't making a move at head coach. Adam Gase is now 30-40 in his career (7-15 with the Jets), with 31 of the 40 losses coming by double digits. The Jets' margin of defeat this season is 18.3 points, and the offense has produced six touchdowns in six games. Online conspiracy theorists believe the Jets are keeping Gase on to ensure the team gets the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 draft. It's not the craziest thing we've heard.
