After a hot start to his rookie season, Jets S Jamal Adams became the latest victim of Patriots' star TE Rob Gronkowski in the Jets' 24-17 loss on Sunday. 

Adams had troubles with Gronk from the beginning of the game. The Jets had a 14-0 lead when Patriots QB Tom Brady launched a ball toward the back of the end zone intended for Gronkowski. Adams made a play on the ball, but refs said that he made too much contact with the 6-foot-6 tight end resulting in a pass interference call.

Dion Lewis would score on the next play, and Adams was still surprised as to why the refs threw the flag.

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter: The Jets gave a good account of themselves and, despite some glaring weaknesses, continue to prove that they're a more talented group than most people gave them credit for before the season. Let's break down the performances on the defensive side of the ball from the Jets' loss to the Patriots in Week 6:

Defensive Line

The defensive line once again didn't make any major contributions, with New England rushing for 118 yards at an average of 4.7 per carry and officially surrendering just four quarterback hits and no sacks. However, that was partly due to the Jets' gameplan. They didn't blitz much, sending just four rushers on average. And some of the bigger runs they gave up came with pass defense personnel on the field or one of Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson on the bench...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Jets sometimes seem like they've cornered the market on finding interesting new ways to lose. Five years ago, it was the infamous "Butt fumble." This time, it was a fumble that maybe, probably, never was.

But the differences between those two plays are as stark as the differences between those two teams. The "Butt fumble" was an embarrassment on Thanksgiving 2012 that turned Mark Sanchez and the Jets into a national joke. The fumble by Austin Seferian-Jenkins on Sunday -- the "What fumble," as some have named it -- wasn't funny to anyone.

With the Jets riding a three-game winning streak heading into Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, rookie safety Jamal Adams is excited to go against a division rival. 

"It's going to be a fun matchup, man," Adams told NorthJersey.com. "We just want to go out there and compete. We don't take it any different than the previous games. We don't look at it as a Super Bowl or anything. It's just another game in front of us and we have to go out there and compete." 

So far in his first season, Adams has 18 total tackles and one sack, but struggled at times in coverage during last week's game against the Browns. Head coach Todd Bowles has been impressed with the way Adams has worked to improve after Week 5.

Jets CB Jamal Adams is reveling at the chance to potentially defeat Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday.

The Jets play host to the Patriots as both teams are part of a three-way tiet for the AFC East lead. The matchup, however, doesn't favor the Jets as Brady and company are projected to earn the win on the road. 

But Adams is primed to do the exact opposite: He wants to defeat the quarterback he refers to as the GOAT.

The Jets won their third consecutive game on Sunday, but this was a performance that was very rough around the edges. The Browns gained almost twice as many yards as the Jets (419 to 212) but kept shooting themselves in the foot whenever they had a chance to score.

Let's break down the performances on the defensive side of the ball from the Jets' overtime win over the Jaguars in Week 4:

Defensive Line

Statistically, the Jets didn't have a great deal of success on the defensive line, as they had just one sack and allowed Jacksonville to rack up 175 rushing yards at 4.5 yards per carry. However, they made some key contributions to help the team win.

For the second time in three weeks, Jets linebacker Darron Lee has been fined by the NFL for unnecessary roughness - this time $18,231 for his hit on Miami quarterback Jay Cutler last Sunday afternoon.

Lee's infraction came with 10:12 left in the Jets' 20-6 win over the Dolphins at the Meadowlands. After the Jets defense flushed Cutler out of the pocket, he scrambled to his right and threw the ball downfield. As he threw, Lee was still about four yards away from the quarterback, but he still kept coming and threw his shoulder into Cutler anyway, drawing a flag.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles believes his defensive unit made big improvements in the team's win over the Dolphins on Sunday. 

The Jets let up 45 points to the Raiders a week ago, but it didn't look like a defense that allowed that many points on Sunday. The Dolphins couldn't get anything going offensively, and Bowles believes it was because the team played together.

The Jets surprisingly hung around for the better part of three quarters, but eventually the game slipped away from them and the Raiders came away with the anticipated blowout win. Aside from a couple of ill-timed turnovers, the run defense was the biggest issue in yesterday's game.

Jets rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye impressed head coach Todd Bowles in their NFL debuts in Sunday's 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field.

Adams, whom the Jets drafted sixth overall, recorded five tackles and one pass defensed, while the second-round pick Maye recorded seven combined tackles.

"I thought Jamal had an outstanding game," Bowles said, according to NJ.com's Darryl Slater. "His eyes were good. He was physical. He played very smart. Minus one play, Marcus had a good ball game as well."

The Jets' season got to an inauspicious start with a 21-12 loss on the road in Buffalo. Questionable coaching decisions, poor communication in the defensive backfield, an overly conservative offensive gameplan, and inconsistent tackling all contributed to the loss. However, the Jets still kept the game competitive into the fourth quarter.

Let's break down the performances on the defensive side of the ball:

A year after finishing with the sixth-worst record in the NFL, the Jets are expected to be among the league's worst teams in 2017. How bad are they supposed to be? Maybe not historically bad as some suggest, but they are still in a rebuild.

Jets' first round pick, S Jamal Adams, has already impressed his new teammates, according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes. 

The Jets were exuberant when Adams fell to their No. 6 slot in the 2017 NFL Draft as he was the player the wanted most. Participating at OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Adams has shown his teammates, like CB Morris Claiborne, why the front office was so high on him.

"The things he has done so far?" Claiborne said. "He's unbelievable...He's been out here playing lights out. Picking up the defense, checking to different things, knowing what he wants to check to. He's having fun doing it, too. His spirit is awesome. He's having fun doing what he knows how to do, and that's football."

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- There were plenty of people who didn't understand the Jets' decision to draft safeties in both the first and second round, but Marcus Maye wasn't one of them. As far as he's concerned, the Jets' plan was obvious and simple. 

"They tried to get the best two safeties in the draft," he said. "And they did that." 

Those are strong words coming from the former Florida safety whom the Jets took in the second round, one day and round after they took LSU safety Jamal Adams with the sixth overall pick - especially since three other safeties were chosen in between them. But the Jets don't necessarily disagree with that assessment.
