Christopher Johnson has already promised that Adam Gase won't be fired and he'll be the Jets coach at the start of next season. There are no indications at all that the Jets CEO is willing to change his mind, no matter what happens down the stretch of the season.

But Gase sure has to be stretching his boss' patience.

Gase needed an absolute gift from the Dolphins and the officials to avoid what would have been another embarrassing loss on Sunday. The Jets won when a pass interference non-call was overturned on replay, giving them another shot to get into game-winning field goal range. Then, Sam Ficken nailed a 44-yarder as time expired to give the Jets a 22-21 win.

As Adam Gase emphasized during the week, the Jets were entering this week's game as a 4-7 team and they sure played like one against the Bengals on Sunday. Now they're a 4-8 team, having lost to a winless team for the second time since the bye week.

To their credit, the Bengals played with good energy and discipline on defense, and rode a solid Andy Dalton performance in his return to the lineup to break a 13-game losing streak that stretched back to last December.

Offensively, the Jets had some near misses, but struggled to sustain drives, mainly due to dropped passes and ill-timed penalties. The Bengals exploited some coverage breakdowns to score two first half touchdowns and built a 17-3 lead before the Jets drove for a late field goal.

C.J. Mosley, Chuma Edoga and Paul Worrilow missed practice again Friday and have been ruled out on Sunday against the Bengals.

With the Jets' recent hot streak keeping their playoff hopes alive, Mosley has remained off injured reserve despite only appearing in two games this season. The star linebacker said last week that if the injury to his groin/abdomen didn't heal in the near future, he would elect to have season ending surgery.

The Jets will play an 0-11 Bengals team this week before trying to get revenge on a 2-9 Dolphins team that stunned the Jets for their first win of the season just a few weeks ago.

Another week has gone by, and another Jets win transpired. This team is simply clicking everywhere, and while the offensive side of the ball has garnered a lot of praise, it has been the defense that continues to step up and prove that they are one of the best units in the league. 

And that's come with injuries to starters like Avery Williamson, C.J. Mosley and Trumaine Johnson, to name a few. Depth players have had to step up, and lately, none has been more noticeable than rookie CB Bless Austin

The Rutgers product has been a fan favorite during this three-game win streak, as injuries to Darryl Roberts, along with Johnson, have given Austin the opportunity to make a good first impression on defense.

On "Star Wars Day" at Metlife Stadium, the force definitely wasn't strong with the Raiders.  

Sam Darnold passed for over 300 yards and two scores, and also rushed for a score as the Jets swept Oakland aside impressively to put a major dent in the Raiders' postseason hopes. Beating lowly teams like Washington and the Giants is one thing, but this was the kind of win which will get people looking at this Jets team and it's short-to-medium term future in a different way.
