New coordinator, more problems for the Jets defense.
In their first game under interim defensive coordinator Frank Bush, after Gregg Williams was fired on Monday, the Jets were gashed by the Seahawks in a 40-3 loss Sunday at Lumen Field.
Russell Wilson and company piled up 410 total yards of offense and cut through the Jets defense with ease to turn the game into a blowout by the third quarter, with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll even giving Wilson the fourth quarter off in favor of former Jets quarterback Geno Smith.
The Jets’ run defense was especially porous. The unit entered the game 11th in the league in stopping the run, giving up an average of 107.8 yards per game. But there were plenty of big holes to run through on Sunday, with Chris Carson taking 12 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown and Carlos Hyde adding 15 carries for 66 yards. The Seahawks finished with 174 rushing yards on 36 carries — the second-most yards allowed by the Jets this season, behind only the 182 yards they gave up to the 49ers in Week 2.
“I wish I had a good answer for you,” coach Adam Gase said, when asked about the defense’s struggle against the run. “It’s hard to tell without watching the film. … There were a couple times they saw what front we were in, and seeing where they ran the ball, it wasn’t really correlating. I have a feeling I know what happened as far as, a couple guys were doing some things they probably shouldn’t have been doing. All it takes is one guy to break down, and you’re in trouble.”
Gase said he didn’t think the change in coordinators hurt the defense.
“I just feel like when we finally settled down, it was, the offensive side of the ball wasn’t really doing anything,” Gase said. “We started going three-and-out. We weren’t getting anything going. It just got away from us.”
Wilson picked apart the Jets’ young secondary, completing 21 of 27 passes for 206 yards and four touchdowns. The lone blemish on his stat line was an interception by Marcus Maye, who tipped it to himself in the end zone while defending DK Metcalf.
“Once they got rolling, we had a tough time stopping them, within the run game and the pass game,” Maye said. “Just gotta find a way to get off the field on third downs and slow their momentum down.”
