The Jets committed 10 penalties for 83 yards in Monday night's loss to the Cardinals, with eight of the infractions coming in the first half alone.
Jets CB Buster Skrine had a particularly rough game, getting whistled for three holding penalties and one pass interference call. According to ESPN, the 45 penalties he has taken since entering the league in 2011 are the second most in the league.
Head coach Todd Bowles eventually replaced Skrine with Darryl Roberts.
"Questionable or not, four penalties are four penalties," Bowles said after the game. "He had a bad game. He's got to be better with his hands. We can't play like that and he can't play like that if he's going to have penalties and get handsy like that."

Jerome Boger's officiating crew victimized Skrine all day long, calling him for four penalties, at least a couple of which were extremely dubious.
Skrine was trying to play physical coverage, but that proved impossible with how the game was being officiated. Later in the game, the team obviously instructed him to play off instead and he gave up three consecutive identical plays where the receiver stopped and caught a back shoulder throw.
Skrine has had issues with penalties in the past, but seemed to have fixed that to some degree. Since the NFL tightened up their rules in 2014, he had 20 penalties in the first 20 games, but only five in the last 17 games prior to Monday night's game. >>>>> To read the rest of Bent's Game Analysis, CLICK HERE.
