Week 3 of the NFL season is officially in the books as all the New York Jets can do now is move onto their next game. It’ll be another tough one on the road.
Yes, the New York Jets got brought back down to an embarrassing reality that they were the first team in about two years to lose to the Cleveland Browns. It doesn’t get any lower than that when it comes to professional football but at the end of the day, it is what it is.
As always in football and well, in life, all one can do when they fall down is get right back up and continue their story. The Jets, now 1-2 so far this season, are a young team that has a lot to prove and still trying to find their identity.
A loss is a loss, regardless of the team that handed it to them. The Jets can now move on to their next road game opponent, which is a date in Jacksonville against the Jaguars. The Jaguars are another tough team that will test the Jets in almost every aspect of the game.

Will the Jets crumble under the pressure? Can they bounce back and prove that they can indeed be a competitive team like they were in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions? Can the Jets go back to what worked with a strong rushing attack and stout defense?
This is the time to silence their critics and continue pushing forward in what is another year of rebuilding. While it would be great to see the Jets be a playoff contender this season, they are developing a lot of their young talent for a brighter future.
Realistically, all they can do is focus on that development now and see where everything falls into place over the next few months. All they need to worry about is their next matchup on the road against the Jaguars. Hopefully, that epic loss to the Browns will serve as a reminder that there is still a lot of work to do in order to keep up with the best of them.
