The Jets lost 30-14 to the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon, as the offense struggled to do much of anything. In fact, the offense wasn't even responsible for the team's two touchdowns -- Arthur Maulet recovered a fumble in the end zone and Jamal Adams had an interception return for a touchdown.
Quarterback Luke Falk threw for only 98 yards and Le'Veon Bell had 18 carries for 35 yards, as the offense ended the game with 105 total yards. Naturally, head coach Adam Gase was upset with his offense's performance.
"It's brutal, I mean it's like one of those things, it's infuriating," Gase said. "Because you're watching the defense and special teams play as hard as they can and executing what they're being asked to do, and they're doing it well a majority of the game, and then we aren't holding our end on offense."
The Patriots defense loaded the box against the Jets which bottled up Bell, who averaged 1.9 yards per carry in the loss. However, the star running back doesn't seem frustrated with his team's effort.
"I'm not frustrated at all," Bell said. "This team has a lot of talent, we just gotta put it all together. It's a new system, guys first time playing together, new coaching staff, we just gotta mesh everything together and get on board."

Gase acknowledged that the run game needs some help, and that the team's third down execution was poor. The Jets only had six 1st downs and were 0-12 on 3rd down conversions.
In comparison, the Patriots offense had opposite results -- gaining 21 first downs and going 6-15 on 3rd down conversions.
"We would have been alright if we would have executed some of the stuff," Gase said. "There was a few things in the run game we got to clean up, that we got to give our guys a better chance on. We just didn't give ourselves a chance. We can't go third-and-10, we go third-and-10 we don't convert."

Wide receiver Jamison Crowder had two catches for 24 yards in the loss, and addressed how the team can turn things around going forward.
"I just think we gotta get in a rhythm," Crowder said. "Think that's the hardest thing right now, trying to find that rhythm... it's tough right now, but it's part of the business, you gotta handle adversity and just keep going."
