For the second consecutive week in a row, the New York Jets find themselves on the wrong end of the scoreboard as they lost to the New England Patriots 15-10.
Just like their showing against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2, the Jets struggled to move the football as Zach Wilson managed to only complete 18 of his 36 pass attempts for 157 yards.
The running game wasn’t much better either as Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook combined for just 36 yards on the ground on 20 attempts.
Life has been tough without Aaron Rodgers under center, but the defense has given New York ample opportunities to win games.
The Jets defense limited the Patriots to 15 points on the afternoon, though that apparently wasn’t enough to give them the win.
Sauce Gardner found himself in a scuffle with Mac Jones who hit him below the belt and the defensive back had a hilarious reaction afterwards via Ari Meirov.
“He’s trying to prevent me from having kids in the future,” Gardner said.

If Mac Jones did indeed hit Sauce Gardner in his “private parts” then this reaction makes sense.pic.twitter.com/zY5kD1FJDO

Getting hit in the groin area is a painful experience for any athlete and it happened when tempers started to flare between the two teams.
The AFC East looks like it might belong to the Miami Dolphins after they blew out the Denver Broncos, but there’s still bad blood amongst the other teams in the division.
Although this isn’t the first time Jones has been accused of a dirty hit, the fact remains that the Jets are going to really have to find a way to pull themselves together before the regular season gets away from them.NEXT: Insider Shares Jets’ True Feelings On Zach Wilson
