Jets plummet back to Earth, fall to previously winless Bengals

Jets plummet back to Earth, fall to previously winless Bengals”

After having brought in LeVeon Bell during the offseason on a four-year, $52.5 million deal, the two-time first-team All-Pro running back had grandiose expectations.

Following their loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 9, NY is now the first team in league history to lose twice in the same season to two teams with a record of 0-7 or worse. And the Jets were facing a team that hadn't won a game in almost a year.

But the Jets offense - which posted just three total yards through the first 20 minutes of the second half - would continue to implode throughout when Kelvin Beachum's hold in the end zone that resulted in a safety to put Cincinnati up 19-6 with 6:18 remaining in the third.

With the rookie struggling and the season careening toward 0-16, Taylor reversed course and went back to Dalton, who made the difference in front of the smallest crowd in Paul Brown Stadium history. Linebacker Neville Hewitt never turned to look for the ball on a deep throw to Tyler Boyd, bumping the receiver for a 39-yard pass interference that put the ball on the 5-yard line. Darnold was 28 of 48 for 239 yards with four sacks.

Darnold had a foot stepped on late in the game, but said it wasn't an issue.

After three encouraging wins behind their young quarterback, the Jets found themselves back in a discouraging place.

We know how you feel, Andy.

The Jets lost to the 0-7 Dolphins 26-18 on November 3.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and first-year coach Zac Taylor hugged and traded a couple of pats to the chest before Dalton jogged onto the field for the final time on Sunday.

It's the first National Football League victory for Bengals head coach Zac Taylor, who made the decision to go back to QB Andy Dalton after rookie Ryan Finley struggled as a starter.

The veteran hopes it will not end as Cincinnati takes early lead over the New York Jets.

Dalton said he felt the team enjoyed its best week of practice all season.
