Video: Jets Look for First Win of 2020 as they Host the Cardinals

The Jets will look for their first win of 2020 on Sunday as they play the 2-2 Arizona Cardinals at home.

Arizona enters the game Sunday at 2-2, while the Jets are 0-4.

Gamblers Starting to Place Money on the Jets for Sunday’s Game Against Arizona

This may surprise you after watching the Jets lay an egg on Thursday last week against the Broncos at home, but those who like to lay the odds are placing money on the Jets this week.

New York is sitting as a 7-point underdog against the Arizona Cardinals, who enter the game against the Jets at 2-2, 1-1 at home and 1-1 on the road.

The Jets at 0-4 have allowed 131 points so far in their four losses, that’s 32.7 points per game.

Nevertheless, here’s the latest write up from Sports Illustrated’s gambling page on the Jets and Cardinals and how money is sliding to New York.

Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets

Moneyline: Arizona (-305) | New York (+260)

Spread: ARI -7 (-110) | NYJ +7 (-110)

Total: 47– Over: (-110) | Under: 47 (-110)

Game Info: October 11, 2020 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT | FOX

This is easily the most perplexing movement of any line in Week 5. The Cardinals (2-2 SU; 2-2 ATS) have seen the line move against them after opening as 8.5-point road favorites against the Jets. Despite the strong support in ticket count for the Cardinals, the line has moved in favor of winless New York. Oddsmakers at DraftKings Sportsbook have adjusted the line to a current market offering of Arizona as only 7-point road favorites. Bettors are really expecting a clueless Adam Gase and his New York Jets (0-4 SU; 0-4 ATS) to cover the number against Kyler Murray in Week 5? I realize the Cardinals have dropped two straight, but there is no way anyone should ever be putting their hard earned money behind an Adam Gase coached team. Despite nearly 75 percent of the money being in support of the Cardinals the oddsmakers have moved this line surprisingly in favor of the Jets.

Jets Deny They’re Talking to Agents of Coaches with Adam Gase’s Job Not Safe

While head coach Adam Gase might be firmly situated on the hot seat, the Jets denied they’re making plans for his successor just yet, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

According to Pro Football Talk, the team denied a report that said CEO and acting owner Christopher Johnson started reaching out to top coaching agents who represent potential candidates for the Jets’ next head coach, should Gase be fired.

On Monday, Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports reported Johnson and the Jets started reaching out to agents with Gase potentially coaching for his job with the team at 0-3 entering its Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.

“I’m told the Jets have already reached out to a top coach agent and started asking questions,” Cowherd said on his show Monday. “They’re going to look to college, they’re going to look to the pros. But the Jets have started the process. Of course, the Jets will deny this, but the Jets are now calling big-time agents. I’m not going to give you the name of the agent because that will give up my source. But they are calling big-time agents, Christopher Johnson, and they’re now compiling lists.”

Gase enters Thursday’s game against the Broncos with a 7-12 record since taking over as Jets coach in 2019.

Sam Darnold Says He’s Not Playing Consistent Enough to Win

Sam Darnold could have been perfect on Sunday, and it still may not have changed the Jets’ fate against the Colts.

But in reality, Darnold’s performance in a 36-7 loss turned out to be the lowlight in what was a miserable day in every aspect for the road team at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.Darnold tossed three interceptions, including two that were returned for touchdowns. The other pick came in the end zone, killing one of the Jets’ few promising drives without any points.

Darnold takes the blame for his poor performance against the Colts, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

“I’m not playing consistent enough to play well in this league,” Darnold said. “And so, for me, I just need to play more consistent, make the plays when they’re there, and when they’re not, just get rid of the ball, check it down, do all the right things I need to do.”

Darnold finished 17-of-29 passing for 168 yards, one touchdown and the three interceptions. Through three games, he’s averaging just 5.9 yards per attempt.

Jets to Be Without WR Breshad Perriman and WR Jamison Crowder Vs Colts

The Jets’ offense against the Colts will look nothing like the one you expected in the preseason, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

Wide receivers Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) will both be out when the Jets play the Colts at 4:05 p.m. on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Offensive tackle George Fant will also miss the game due to a concussion suffered at practice on Wednesday.

Those three players join a list players on IR who have long been ruled out from playing on Sunday. Running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Denzel Mims will both be out until at least Week 5 due to hamstring injuries.

Jets vs 49ers: Can the Jets Get on Track Against the NFC Champs?

Opening day didn’t go so well for the Jets, as their trip to Buffalo was a disaster as the team fell to 0-1 with an ugly 27-17 loss to the Bills.

This week won’t be much easier, as the Jets will be at home to host the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers, and many betting experts don’t see New York being able to hang with San Fran.

Betting on the NFL just got a lot easier with BetQL. Check out their NFL expert picks for this week and every week for the rest of the season.

One thing that is for sure is that the 49ers need to rebound as badly as the Jets, as they lost in stunning fashion at home to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20.

San Francisco also won’t have a couple of big players in the lineup, including cornerback Richard Sherman, and tight end George Kittle’s status for the game is up in the air.

Here’s a couple keys for the Jets if they are going to pull off the week two upset.

1. Get Darnold Going Early

Last week it was painful watching Sam Darnold trying to get the Jets offense going, and Darnold never got on track.

He ended the day 21-for-35 for just 215 yards, and most of that came in garbage time. If the Jets are going to hang with San Fran, they need to get the offense moving early.

”My timing needs to be better,” Darnold said. ”I think I did hurry some things. I feel like just at the beginning of a game I’ve just got to relax and take a deep breath, ease myself into it and make the throws when they’re there.”

That will be easier said than done, as the 49ers pass rush is even tougher than that of the Bills, and Darnold needs to make good decisions downfield.

2. Try and Establish the Run

No Le’Veon Bell, as the Jets leading rusher is going to miss a couple weeks with a hamstring issue suffered against the Bills.

That means the run game will fall on veteran Frank Gore, who played a good portion of his career in San Fran with the Niners.

Gore will play this game with a chip on his shoulder, and he is going to want to prove he’s got gas left in his tank.

3. Get To Jimmy Garoppolo

”You’ve got to deal with the situation that you’re given and control what you can control.”

That was Garoppolo last week after they fell at home to the Cardinals. The Niners offense couldn’t control much, as the Cardinals defense was able to confuse Jimmy G and get to him a couple of times.

The Jets would be wise to take that game plan and duplicate it, making it a long day for the 49ers QB can only help the Jets get a victory.

Prediction: The Niners are road favorites on the East coast, but you can expect the Jets to stay in the game and likely may even have a late lead.

It will be up to Darnold to keep it that way, but in the end, it’ll be too much Niners defense and not enough offense from the Jets in this week two battle. 49ers 17 Jets 13

Bell Out with a Hamstring Injury, Is He Considered a “Bust” for the Jets?

When the New York Jets came to terms with former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, many Jet fans using were betting that the team finally had its running back of the future.

Instead, here we sit one game into Bell’s second season, and not only has he not been the feature back that many felt he would, he’s now injured and was placed on injured reserve.

Bell went down in a week one loss at Buffalo to the Bills, but was highly ineffective before the injury took place.

The back didn’t play in the second half, and on Tuesday the club announced that he was going on injured reserve with a hamstring pull.

To take the place of Bell on the roster, the Jets signed former Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage.

There’s a bit of excitement about Ballage, as the club tried to acquire Ballage in a trade last month, but the deal was voided when he failed a physical because of a hamstring injury. He became a free agent.

Now before you think that Bell isn’t going to be back at all in 2020, think again. Under the new IR rules, Bell will be forced to sit at least three games, meaning he will be eligible to play in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

It was supposed to be an offseason of change for Bell and the Jets, as the running back spent a lot of time working on his weight, coming into camp at 210 pounds, which he says is his lightest weight since playing in high school.

He also said that he felt he would be a much better back, and that the poor showing and numbers from 2019 can be put in the trash.

Jets coach Adam Gase went back and forth about how long Bell would be out for, but the coach seems to be having a better time being more careful about what he says after Bell called out Gase on Twitter after being removed from a scrimmage, and the two had to sit down and have a long chat about their relationship.

Now is a time for the Jets to see if any of these other backs on the roster can get it done. If so, rushing Bell back won’t be such a big deal.

If the run game continues to falter, the club very well may race Bell back out there for week five when he’s able to return back to the roster against the Cardinals.
