The NY Jets will search for their first victory against the struggling Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.
The NY Jets are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals in a pivotal Week 5 matchup. At least, it’s a pivotal matchup for one team.
The Cardinals sit at 2-2 but are losers of their last two games — and it’s not as if either has been a quality loss either.
After starting the season 2-0 with victories over the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Football Team, Arizona fell in tight games to both the Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers.
The result is that the Cardinals enter this game in desperate need of a win. And if they somehow fall to the hapless Jets, their chances of competing in the stacked NFC West plummet even further.
For the Jets, they’re just in search of any semblance of optimism heading into a Week 5 matchup against a superior opponent. Gang Green has hardly even looked semi-competitive for most of the season and most don’t expect that to change in this game.
That’s especially true given that they will be without both quarterback Sam Darnold and rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton — two of the only reasons to continue watching this abysmal team.
Not much has gone right for the Jets from both an on-field performance perspective and a coaching perspective. Nothing is working right now and there have been no signs that anything is going to get better anytime soon.
But maybe the Jets shock everyone with Joe Flacco at quarterback and win their first game of the season. Is it possible? Sure, in theory, I suppose it is.
