The Jets suffered a disheartening 20-12 defeat to the Dolphins in their home opener on Sunday afternoon. Let's break down how each unit performed.

Quarterbacks

While Sam Darnold passed for over 330 yards and a touchdown, the Jets missed several opportunities to get back into the game. There is cause for concern over Darnold's ability to see the field as he didn't anticipate a safety sitting on the route on his first interception and failed to see a couple of wide-open receivers that were open for potential big plays.

The game should slow down for Darnold as he gets more comfortable, but these were plays he was making in the preseason. However, the offensive system would have been pared down and defenses would have been less apt to try and confuse him with exotic looks and pressure packages in preseason. Ultimately, he still made plenty of plays and would have had an even bigger day if he could have fixed some correctable mistakes.

Grade: B-

(Last week: B)

Running Backs

The running game never really got going as Isaiah Crowell was held to less than three yards per touch and Bilal Powell had just six rushing yards and fumbled a handoff. There was no room to run most of the time, though. Powell made some good contributions as a pass catcher, racking up 74 yards on five catches to go along with the Jets' only touchdown.

Grade: C

(Last week: A-)

Receivers/Tight Ends

Those missed opportunities to get back into the game weren't necessarily Darnold's fault, as Terrelle Pryor took full responsibility for his end zone interception in the third quarter, Chris Herndon let him down with a bad drop and Robby Anderson lost a fumble.

Quincy Enunwa was a standout with 92 yards on seven catches, bailing Darnold out on a couple of tough catches and creating some good yardage after the catch. Pryor also had a productive day with 84 yards on four catches, but he also dropped one. Anderson and Jermaine Kearse had disappointingly quiet performances.

Herndon saw more action after an early Neal Sterling head injury, but while he caught two passes, he made several costly mistakes. Eric Tomlinson had a nice gain on a screen pass, but once again was inconsistent as a blocker.

Grade: C

(Last week: B+)

Offensive Line

As expected, the Dolphins edge rushers were a handful for the Jets offensive line, who gave up four sacks. While there weren't many plays where Jets linemen were cleanly beaten in pass protection, tackles Kelvin Beachum and Brandon Shell were driven back off their spot regularly to squeeze the pocket. And the unit as a group had issues picking up stunts.

The Jets struggled to get the running game going, too, with 13 of their 19 running plays going for two yards or less. The interior line struggled, with Spencer Long giving up too much penetration and James Carpenter missing several blocks. Brian Winters had some positive blocks but was far from mistake-free. The Jets had three false start penalties, including on consecutive plays after the Jets had driven down to the Miami 25, which killed their momentum in the fourth quarter.

Grade: C-

(Last week: B+)

Defensive Line

After a quiet first game, an active Leonard Williams had some good production this week with six tackles, including two for tackles for loss. He also had a half sack negated by a penalty. Nathan Shepherd was once again quiet, but Henry Anderson continues to make an impact as he had a first-half sack.

Steve McLendon struggled at the point of attack this week, as he was blocked out of a handful of plays, although he was in on one tackle in the backfield. Mike Pennel had a good run-stuff, but one missed tackle.

Grade: C+

(Last week: B)

Linebackers

Darron Lee failed to make the same kind of impact as last week, as he was blocked out of a few key plays and gave up a third down conversion in coverage. Avery Williamson recovered a fumble and had a quarterback hit but missed a few tackles.

The outside linebackers were an issue this week as Brandon Copeland, Jordan Jenkins and Frankie Luvu were all guilty of losing outside contain as they kept getting fooled on read option-type plays. Between them, they created some pressure, with Jenkins recording a strip-sack and Copeland sacking Ryan Tannehill twice, although one of those was negated by a penalty.

Grade: C-

(Last week: B-)

Secondary

After having recorded 12 passes defensed in Detroit, the Jets had none in Week 2. Penalties were also a major issue, as Buster Skrine and Morris Claiborne each had costly third down penalties to negate sacks. Skrine also had a face mask penalty, got beaten for a touchdown and missed a few tackles.

Claiborne got lucky when he was burned on a deep ball but gave up a few plays where he was playing too far off. Trumaine Johnson wasn't really tested, though.

Jamal Adams had a nice first half, highlighted by a strip sack, but made a few mistakes in the second half. He appeared to be at fault on the blown coverage that enabled Miami to run out the clock. Doug Middleton was beaten for a touchdown in coverage.

Grade: C

(Last week: B-)

Special Teams

After a near-flawless first game, the special teams unit predictably regressed to the mean. Charone Peake had a costly penalty and the Dolphins controlled field position for long periods, especially in the first half.

Punter Lachlan Edwards had pretty good numbers, but the Jets were outgained in the return game by 82 yards to four. Kicker Jason Myers missed an extra point that could have been crucial, although he redeemed himself somewhat by nailing a 55-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

Grade: C-

After the Jets fell 30-14 to the Patriots, Luke Falk's assessment of his debut start as an NFL quarterback was blunt.

The second-year pro put the blame on himself after he completed 12 of 22 passes (54.5 percent) for 98 yards and an interception during Sunday's Week 3 defeat to New England (3-0) at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachussetts.

The way New York (0-3) remained winless as its offense -- unable to put points on the board while the defense scored both touchdowns via cornerback Arthur Maulet's end zone fumble recovery and safety Jamal Adams' 61-yard interception return -- searched for answers.

Crowder, Anderson react to loss 00:02:05
The offense was missing in action for most of the 30-14 loss. Anderson seemed particularly dejected when talking to Jeane Coakley.

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. "Becuase youre 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."

There's been nothing predictable about the Jets' season so far -- until now.

With three key defensive players out and a third-string quarterback who was on the practice squad having never played in an NFL game this time last week, the widely anticipated Patriots blowout was exactly what we saw on Sunday afternoon.

It didn't take long for any lingering hopes that the Jets might step up to make the game competitive against all odds to evaporate altogether, as Tom Brady drove the Patriots down the field for a touchdown on each of their first three drives. This gave New England a 20-point lead early in the second quarter.

If you thought Friday's news that the Patriots were releasing Antonio Brown would be the end of his time in the news cycle, you were sorely mistaken.

Rather than suiting up for New England to face the Jets on Sunday, the embattled wide receiver spent his morning on Twitter, where he announced he was not planning on playing in the NFL again, before turning his attention to former Steelers teammate Ben Roethlisberger, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and FS1's Shannon Sharpe

The Jets are visiting the New England Patriots in Week 3 and it's lining up to be a long Sunday for New York. According to Odds Shark, the Pats are favorites by three touchdowns, -21.5.

The Browns left last Monday's game at MetLife Stadium with a win over the Jets, but one of their star players also left with a hefty fine to pay.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, a former number one overall pick, was flagged twice during Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets for personal fouls committed against Jets QB Trevor Siemian.

The second foul, which occurred in the second quarter, resulted in Siemian suffering ligament damage in his ankle, ending his first season in New York shortly after it had begun. Garrett fell on Siemian with his full weight, and the quarterback's ankle got caught underneath him on the way down. The injury left the Jets with Luke Falk as their only healthy QB, who will now get the start this weekend in New England as Sam Darnold continues to recover from mono.

While Friday's release of Antonio Brown has dominated the headlines for the Patriots, what's gone somewhat under the radar is just exactly how shorthanded New England's offense could be on Sunday against the Jets due to injury.

Fullback James Develin, who the Patriots use heavily in their offense as a blocker and a short-distance runner, has been ruled out with a neck injury.

Sticking on the offensive side of the ball, tight ends Ryan Izzo (calf) and Matt LaCosse (ankle) are both listed as questionable. If both Izzo and LaCosse are sidelined, the Patriots would not have an active tight end, as veteran Ben Watson is suspended for the first four games due to testing positive for testosterone.

On Friday afternoon, the Jets announced their all-time team, as voted by the fans. The team will be recognized in a pregame ceremony before the home game against Dallas on Oct. 13th, as part of the celebrations marking the NFL's 100th season.

In an exercise such as this, it's impossible to please everyone. There have been so many great Jets players that there was bound to be some individuals to miss out, whom many would have considered worthy of a spot.

Two main factors always destined to skew the voting process were longevity and recency bias. In many cases, a player might have played at a high level and had memorable moments, but arguably wasn't a Jet long enough to warrant a spot over a loyal team member that suited up for a decade or more. Also, many younger voters may have voted for someone from their own era when there was a superior Jet at the same position in the past they didn't know about.

The Antonio Brown era in New England is over.

Just 11 days after the wide receiver signed a one-year deal with the Patriots following a quick falling-out with the Raiders, on Friday he was released once again.

"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time," the Patriots said in a team-issued statement.

Jeane Coakley spoke to Adam Gase before the team heads to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots with their third string QB.

Four days after the Jets fell to 0-2 on Monday's 23-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, New York's quick turnaround for Sunday's 1 p.m. road game against the Patriots presents the latest challenge for Adam Gase.

Before Friday's practice at The Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, New Jersey, the first-year head coach issued several injury updates ahead of the weekend's preparation for New England (2-0).

Among the notables, the Jets remain without veteran linebacker C.J. Mosley, but rookie defensive tackle Quinnen Williams continues to progress as Week 3 approaches.

The Patriots already figured to be among the Jets' toughest opponents, but the rich got richer in New England when wide receiver Antonio Brown fell into its lap from the Oakland Raiders at the start of the regular season.

After the Patriots signed Brown to a one-year deal worth $15 million Sept. 7 following his release, he sat out the team's 2019 opener Sept. 8 -- not like New England needed him for its 33-3 rout of the Pittsburgh Steelers -- but made a splash when he debuted Sept. 15 in Miami.

The Patriots (2-0) downed the Dolphins for a 43-0 shutout, fueled early by Brown, who had three of his four receptions on the opening drive, totaling 56 yards and a 20-yard touchdown from veteran quarterback Tom Brady.

With Sam Darnold missing his second consecutive game with mononucleosis and Trevor Siemian out the rest of the season due to ligament tears in his ankle that he suffered in Monday night's loss against the Browns, the Jets have turned to QB Luke Falk, who will make his first start of his career this Sunday afternoon. 

And what a game to make your first career start it will be, because not only are the Jets on the road, but they will be facing the reigning Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in Foxborough.

Falk, taken with the 199th pick in the 2018 draft by the Titans, will be taking a similar start to his career as the pass thrower on the opposing sidelines--Tom Brady. Like Falk, Brady was also taken with the 199th pick in the draft, and also made his first career start in Foxborough, Mass--albeit in Foxboro Stadium, and not Gillette Stadium.

Trumaine Johnson has become a weight around the neck of the Jets defense, and his benching on Monday night likely was the beginning of his end. The 29-year-old cornerback likely won't be in the long-term plans, as the Jets continue rebuilding their defense.

But don't expect him to be replaced by Jalen Ramsey, who has asked the Jacksonville Jaguars to trade him. Johnson's albatross of a contract makes it very difficult for the Jets to do that.

That's the part that makes the latest mess with Johnson so bad -- the fact that he's only in Year 2 of a five-year, $72.5 million contract. He's already been paid more than $26 million, and he's costing the Jets $12 million against the salary cap this season. And the way his deal is structured, they might have to endure his presence on the roster for another two years, at least.

Jamal Adams not happy with fine 00:01:46
Jamal Adams is puzzled after being fined, his response 'Next time I might just tag him on the hip and say, 'He's it' and play tag with 'em'

Jamal Adams might be done calling out the NFL on his social media, but he isn't done taking jabs after his recent fine by the league.

Adams was docked $21,000 by the league for his rougher the passer penalty on Baker Mayfield on Monday night, a call he publicly disagreed with on his Instagram where he said the league is a "joke." 

When speaking with reporters on Thursday, Adams made sure to keep it clean (he said it was "Bull----" in the post) because his mother told him to calm down. However, he did address the play again, and confirmed that he will be appealing the fine.

Jets QB Sam Darnold has remained out due to mono. Due to the nature of the illness, a clear target date for his potential return has been hard to nail down. Here are the latest updates...


Sept. 18, 3:44 AM:

The biggest issue with Darnold's illness is the fact that the possibility of an enlarged spleen could be a side effect. Well, that's exactly what Darnold has. 

He confirmed it during his press conference on Wednesday, saying it "needs to get a little smaller for me to play." An enlarged spleen is a serious matter, especially for someone playing a contact sport. Darnold can participate in non-contact activities, but if the enlarged spleen doesn't subside, he won't be able to go out there. So time will tell.

Jamal Adams may have scared Jets fans Tuesday when he took the team out of his Instagram and Twitter bios. This day and age, that's a main cause for speculation that a player isn't happy with his current situation. 

Adams, though, went on WFAN afterward and didn't say he was displeased with the Jets. Instead, he brushed off the questions about his social media move. 

"It's social media. At the end of the day, it's outside noise. I'm not focused on that," Adams said when Maggie Gray asked what we should make of the changes.

Before answering questions during his Wednesday press conference, Jets head coach Adam Gase dished out some injury updates and rookie DT Quinnen Williams had the best one. 

Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of Monday Night Football against the Browns. However, Gase says everything is trending in the right direction for him to return to practice on Thursday. 

Gase noted that Williams, the team's No. 3 overall draft pick back in April, won't be at practice today. Instead, he'll be working on his strength and conditioning, but he's expecting him to be back out there with the team tomorrow. That's big news as the Jets will want as many of their best players on the field as possible against the Patriots this week.

As rookie quarterback Daniel Jones takes over the Giants' offense for 17th-year veteran Eli Manning, a decision announced Tuesday by New York, the crosstown starter has an idea of what the transition will be like.

Just last year, fresh off the Jets making him the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Sam Darnold ascended to the top of the depth chart and began his rookie season with the Jets as the team's starter.

Now in his second year with New York while he works back from mononucleosis, Darnold understands that the news can be tough for Manning to process, but the development should only help Jones as the Giants move forward.

Speaking publicly for the first time since his mono diagnosis, Jets QB Sam Darnold gave an update on his health on Tuesday.

Appearing on The Michael Kay Show, Darnold explained that he's hopeful he can return for the Jets' Week 5 matchup in Philadelphia. 

While Week 5 seems to make sense, with the Jets coming off their early by week, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano has noted that Darnold's absence could stretch until Week 7, based on what he's heard from doctors.

"We will really have a better idea (of when Darnold can return) when the doctors give us the green light that he can progress," Gase said. "The doctors are letting us know when to proceed with him."

Jets QB Trevor Siemian, who exited Monday night's loss against the Browns due to an ankle injury, is out for the season, head coach Adam Gase said on Tuesday.

Gase said the injury was ligament related and that there was no break, adding that Siemian will likely need surgery.

While the Jets are now without starter Sam Darnold and their backup, Gase said Tuesday that the team will go with Luke Falk as their starter until Darnold returns -- with the team looking to acquire a backup.

The Jets' quarterback situation after Trevor Siemian went down with an injury on Monday night got even worse, as Sam Darnold is still fighting mono. That paired with other issues the team is facing has sportsbooks predicting their next contest to be a blowout. 

The Jets are set to travel to Foxborough to face the 2-0 Patriots this Sunday, and New England is an obvious favorite to stay undefeated in this one. But with Luke Falk set to start for the Jets and the Patriots being absolutely dominant in their first two games, the spread is massive. 

The Patriots are giving 22.5 points to the Jets, according to multiple sportsbooks. That spread is unheard of for an NFL game, but with the Pats outscoring their opponents 76-3 so far this season, paired with the Jets' struggles, many believe it isn't far-fetched.
