New York Jets

The New York Jets have been one of the most interesting teams in the NFL through four weeks. After struggling in Week 1 against a very good Bills defense, things have gotten weird in the Big Apple. Prior to Week 2, quarterback Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis and was ruled out for the foreseeable future. Even stranger, Trevor Siemian was injured in his first start in relief of Darnold, thrusting Luke Falk into the starting job.

No one really could have foreseen Darnold coming down with mono. Even still, many people liked the moves New York made this offseason. The Jets acquired big names such as Le’Veon Bell, C.J Mosley and Jamison Crowder in free agency and also landed Kelechi Osemele in a trade from the Raiders.

While the moves New York made was nice on paper, the offense has been lackluster — even when Darnold was on the field. The Jets offense has largely consisted of getting playmakers the ball in space on short-yardage throws. However, only Bell has proven to be successful in these situations.

Moving forward, the Jets schedule looks quite rough, despite the fact that Darnold is close to his return. There’s hope, though. In Week 9, the Jets go down to Miami to play the Dolphins. Even if Darnold hasn’t returned yet — which he should by then, for what it’s worth — Gang Green would still be okay. The Dolphins are devoid of competitive talent right now and should be a comfortable AFC East victory for the Jets.
