This was puzzling: Because of the Demaryius Thomas injury (how's that trade working out?), the Jets dressed only four WRs. Only three saw action; Josh Bellamy had zero snaps. Jamison Crowder played out of position (30 snaps outside, only 12 in the slot) to accommodate Braxton Berrios, a pure slot receiver. Adam Gase said, "Once we get Jamison back at his normal position, that will help. He's trying to do us a solid by playing outside." Why not use Bellamy so Crowder can stay in the slot? Why not call up an outside receiver from the practice squad? This was questionable roster management and deployment of personnel.

Jets offensive snaps (based on 47): QB — Falk 47; RB — Bell 47, Montgomery 7, Powell 1; WR — Anderson 47, Crowder 42, Berrios 28; TE — Griffin 44, Wesco 11, Brown 6; OL — Beachum 47, Osemele 47, Kalil 47, Winters 47, Shell 47. ANALYSIS: With Demaryius Thomas out, Crowder played outside instead of the slot to accommodate Berrios. Not sure why they didn't use Josh Bellamy. Powell received a crumb in his season debut. Bell never came off the field. (Courtesy: NFL Next Gen Stats)

Jets defensive snaps (based on 73): DL — Williams 50, Anderson 43, Phillips 45, Kaufusi 28, McLendon 24, Fatukasi 22; LB — Hewitt 73, Cashman 66, Basham 47, Langi 21, Luvu 14; DB — Roberts 73, Hairston 73, Adams 73, Maye 73, Poole 67, Johnson 7, Maulet 2, Miles 2. ANALYSIS: Trumaine Johnson, the most expensive dime back in the NFL. Big workload by Brandon Phillips, undrafted rookie.

RB Le'Veon Bell tried to take the high road, insisting, "I'm not frustrated at all. I just know this team has a lot of talent. We just have to put it together." Good point. With a veteran O-line and a star running back in Bell, they should able to score at least a TD. Bell had only 63 total yards from scrimmage on 22 touches, one of the worst games of his career.

QB Luke Falk struggled mightily in his NFL starting debut, but he tried to look on the bright side, saying they did "some positive things" on offense. Actually, not really. He couldn't get the ball to wide receivers, completing on seven of 16.

Coach Adam Gase used words such as "brutal ... atrocious ... infuriating" to describe the offense, which went 0-for-12 on third down and produced only 105 total yards (third fewest in team history). The anticipated return of QB Sam Darnold will help, but the problems run deeper. They allowed five sacks and 14 pressures.

Adams knows Jets will stick together (0:24)

WR Robby Anderson was extremely frustrated after catching only three passes for 11 yards. He appeared to be critical of the offensive line, saying, "I don't think we're collectively getting a rhythm. It's just hard. It starts up front and it goes from there." Anderson said he's all about winning and doesn't care about individual stats; he said he'd be happy with 11 yards in a win. But he also believes he can help because of his playmaking ability: "It's obvious. I think the world knows what I'm capable of doing. I know what I'm capable of doing. It's frustrating."

Adam Gase: We have a lot to fix

Jets HC Adam Gase reflected on a discouraging loss up in New England and discussed what the offense needs to do to improve moving forward.

Brady throws 2 TDs in win over Jets (0:31)

The Jets' offense was brutal, managing zero points in a 30-14 loss to the Patriots. They got a defensive touchdown and a special teams touchdown, and that was it. Adam Gase is in charge of the offense, and he needs to come up with solutions during the bye week. The anticipated return of Sam Darnold in Week 5 will help.

When Devin McCourty intercepted Luke Falk in the third quarter, the nearest Jet was Robby Anderson — over 12 yards away, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.

Two words to describe the Jets' offense: Utterly lifeless. Third-string QB Luke Falk hasn't been able to move the ball, but he's getting no help from the offensive line, which has suffered too many pass-protection breakdowns. They have only three first downs and trail, 20-0. In their last 14 quarters at Gillette Stadium, the Jets have been outscored, 125-15. Sheer domination.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets, down four starting linebackers on defense, are getting embarrassed by the Patriots, 13-0, after the first quarter. The replacement linebackers are getting lit up on play-action passes, falling for Tom Brady's play fakes. He's teaching a graduate course on play-action.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

CB Trumaine Johnson is on the bench for the second straight week, replaced again by Nate Hairston. Johnson is playing a dime-back role, on the field when the Patriots are using four WRs. DC Gregg Williams said Johnson had a good week of practice. Apparently not good enough.
