EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Jets have fielded plenty of bad football teams over the past quarter-century, but this one might be the worst. Falling to 0-5 for the first time since 1996, they embarrassed themselves (again), this time showing no fight in a 30-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium

A rusty Joe Flacco provided no spark whatsoever, as the Jets suffered their fourth double-digit loss of the season — the 11th in 21 games under coach Adam Gase. Clearly, the Jets’ problems run a lot deeper than starting QB Sam Darnold, who sat out with a sprained right shoulder. Six touchdowns in five games, three of which came on broken plays, is an indictment of Gase, whose boss recently called him a “brilliant offensive mind.”
