#27 New York Jets (1-4): For the first time in the Todd Bowles era the Jets have lost three games in a row. It was to be expected that the Jets might have a losing record after week five, facing four playoff teams from last season but not many expected them to be 1-4. Their record wouldn’t be so troubling if the Jets were losing close games and showing some fight, but they’re not. The Jets’ defense has been all over the place this season, in a bad way. The secondary has become laughable giving up 19 plays of 20+ yards and eight plays of 40+ yards. After a strong start the defensive line is losing their poise as well. Aside from the meaningless strip-sack at the end of the game, the Jets couldn’t get to Ben Roethlisberger at all pressuring him on only four out of 48 dropbacks. Unfortunately the problems don’t end with the defense for the Jets, questionable coaching, a struggling run game, turnovers, and injuries aren’t making things any easier. Statistically, teams that start 1-4 have a 6% chance of making the playoffs. If the Jets want any shot at salvaging the season Todd Bowles needs to lead by example and motivate the team to improve in more ways than one. On Monday night the Jets will head into Arizona to face Bowles’ mentor Bruce Arians.
