In a hot and steamy Miami, the New York Jets lost their sixth game of the 2018 NFL season with a disappointing 13 - 6 loss against the home team Miami Dolphins. Heat and humidity made for challenging conditions in south Florida, but the Jets needed no help from the elements to squander this game against their AFC East rivals.
The Jets couldn’t get anything going on offense in an anemic first half attack, with the first five drives resulting in four three and outs and one interception. The Jets finally put something together at the end of the first half to go into the locker room trailing 6-3 in an abomination of terrible offensive football for both teams.
In the second half the Jets offense went from bad to worse. Spencer Long couldn’t snap the ball and the Jets coaches couldn’t understand they needed to replace him until it was too late. Sam Darnold, in the worst outing of his young career, threw four interceptions and should have had two more on passes thrown right into defenders’ hands. The Jets offense managed to outscore itself, 7-6, in this game in a putrid display of offensive ineptitude. The Jets defense was superb, but couldn’t prevent the offense from giving this game away.
With the loss the Jets record goes to 3-6, their faint playoff hopes all but extinguished, as they head home for a week 10 clash against the offensively challenged Buffalo Bills.
I’ll be around for a more in depth recap of today’s game a bit later this evening. In the meantime leave your comments on the game below.
