The reason for one Jets issue is pretty obvious Dan Leberfeld

The Jets dropped their fifth game in a row, losing to New England 27-13 on Sunday.

And a big problem for them today was their run defense, with the Patriots’ finishing with 215 yards on the ground.

The Patriots consistently had big holes to run through.

The Jets continue to have major issues with their gap control, something that has plagued them all year.

“Giving up a lot of yards, giving up runs and getting out of our gaps, and not being sound on in back end,” Jets safety Jamal Adams said. “We just have to be better as a whole and play fundamentally sound.”

They clearly need to make some lineup changes because this gap control issue has been going on all year.

But for some reason, they aren’t keen on benching people.

Why? Hard to tell.
