2019 New York Jets season

The 2019 season was the New York Jets' 50th in the National Football League, their 60th overall in professional football, their 10th playing home games at MetLife Stadium and their first under new head coach Adam Gase. This year the team began featuring a new logo and uniform since 1998. With this new uniform design, the Jets began going for a modern appearance, tweaking the shade of green and adding a black accent similar to what the Arizona Cardinals did in 2005. The Jets improved on their 4–12 record from 2018 but missed the playoffs for the ninth consecutive season after wins by the Titans and Steelers in Week 14. They started the season 1–7, but rallied to win six of their last eight, finishing 7–9.

Game summariesEdit

Week 1: vs. Buffalo BillsEdit

Week One: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets – Game summary
1 2 34Total
Bills 0 0 31417
Jets 6 0 10016

at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

Game information

The Jets forced four turnovers, culminating with a 16–0 lead in the third quarter. However, Bills QB Josh Allen engineered three consecutive scoring drives after Jets LB C. J. Mosley left the game with a groin injury, with the Jets offense unable to respond. In addition, kicker Kaare Vedvik missed both of his kicks, a field goal and an extra point. With the loss, the Jets not only opened the season at 0–1, but became the first team in six years to squander a lead of at least 16 points with a plus-three turnover margin.[8]

Week 2: vs. Cleveland BrownsEdit

Week Two: Cleveland Browns at New York Jets – Game summary
1 2 34Total
Browns 6 10 7023
Jets 0 3 003

at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

Game information

The Jets used their Stealth black alternate uniforms for the first time ever on Monday Night Football against the Browns. Starting quarterback Sam Darnold was ruled out after coming down with infectious mononucleosis, with backup Trevor Siemian slated to start for the Jets in a rematch of the first Monday Night Football game ever played. Siemian was knocked out of the game after suffering an ankle injury and would later be placed on injured reserve, forcing third-string quarterback Luke Falk into action. After a low-scoring first quarter, the Browns pulled away with a Nick Chubb touchdown run and a field goal in the second quarter, and an 89-yard touchdown reception by Odell Beckham Jr. in the third, though newly-signed kicker Sam Ficken successfully made a field goal attempt for the Jets. With the 23–3 loss, the Jets fell to 0–2.[9]

Week 3: at New England PatriotsEdit

Week Three: New York Jets at New England Patriots – Game summary

Game information

Against archrival New England, the Luke Falk-led Jets offense only mustered 105 total yards and were unable to score as the Patriots dominated the game, though the Jets avoided a shutout with a special teams touchdown by Arthur Maulet and a pick six by CB Jamal Adams, who intercepted Patriots backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham as Tom Brady and other starters were resting at that point. With the loss, the Jets enter their bye week at 0–3.[10]

Week 5: at Philadelphia EaglesEdit

Game information

The Jets visited Philadelphia seeking their first ever win against the Philadelphia Eagles, against whom they were 0–10 in the all-time series heading into their Week 5 matchup.[11] They could not get anything going offensively until it was too late in a 31–6 loss. Their only score came in the fourth quarter on a 19-yard run by Vyncint Smith after a muffed punt. New York dropped to 0–4 on the season and 0–11 all-time against Philadelphia with the crushing loss.

Game information

Adam Gase faced off against his former team in the Dolphins for the first time since his firing after the previous season. The Jets scored first with a Sam Darnold touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder, but the Dolphins stormed back with three touchdown passes from former Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter, which was too much for the Jets to overcome due to sloppy play in the second half, including a fumbled snap out of bounds for a safety. With the loss, the Jets not only fell to 1–7, but gave Miami its first win of the year.[14]

Week 10: vs. New York GiantsEdit

at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

Game information

In a back-and-forth game against the crosstown-rival Giants, the Jets defense limited Giants running back Saquon Barkley to 1 rushing yard on the day and sacked rookie quarterback Daniel Jones six times despite allowing him to pass for 308 yards and 4 touchdowns. But a key Giants fumble when Jamal Adams stripped the ball from the Giants quarterback's hands and duly returned for touchdown, in addition to a more balanced Jets offense, allowed the Jets to win 34–27 to improve to 2–7.[15]
