Cardinals rout Jets to snap two-game losing streak

The Cardinals what they needed to snap a two-game losing streak when the schedule sent them to MetLife Stadium to meet the Jets.

Arizona followed in the footsteps of the first four teams to play the Jets this season and sent them to a convincing defeat. Kyler Murray threw for one touchdown and ran for another in a 30-10 victory that pushes their record to 3-2 on the season.

A repeat performance for Murray would help that cause. He was 27-of-37 for 380 yards and led a pair of touchdown drives that put the game out of reach after the Jets cut the lead to seven points in the third quarter.

The Cardinals posted 496 yards overall in a welcome return to the kind of success they enjoyed in the first two weeks of the season. Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds added touchdown runs and they’ll try to keep that balanced production coming in Dallas next Monday night.

The Jets will be in Miami after the NFL rescheduled many games in order to fit in games affected by the postponement of the Patriots-Broncos game scheduled for Monday night. It remains to be seen if quarterback Sam Darnold will be back for that matchup or if Joe Flacco will get his second start.

Flacco was 18-of-33 for 195 yards and Le'Veon Bell had 60 yards on 13 carries in his return from a hamstring injury, but the offense remained a listless unit that continually struggles to maintain drives. It’s hard to imagine that changing at this point regardless of who plays quarterback and it looks like a long year of losing for the Jets as a result.

  1. Look on the bright side Jets fans. Le’Veon Bell had 60 yards and didn’t get hurt.

  2. Gase maintains his steady hand on the rudder. He’s steering the boat off Niagara Falls, but his hand is steady while doing so.

  3. 6th time Gase has lost by 20+ points. O’Brien was fired, Quinn is going to be fired, it can be done! Somebody want to slap Johnson across the head and tell him it’s time to do the same to Gase! Offensive genius my seat cushion!

  4. No chance Gase makes it another 2 weeks
    If he does then he must have some dirt on the owner or something.
    His players seem disinterested

  5. Since the Dolphins have never beaten Joe Flacco (when he was with Ravens), I’d keep Flacco as Jets QB starter next week. That’s about the only way Jets can beat Fins and Gase keeps his job.
