The NY Jets were shut out 24-0 by the Miami Dolphins falling to 0-6 on the season.

The NY Jets lost again. Really, what else is there to say?

The Jets traveled to South Beach to take on their division rivals, the Miami Dolphins, in a game that went very much the same as every other game this year has gone.

Complete and utter domination brought on by incompetency on both sides of the ball.

The Jets were shut out falling 24-0 to their division foes. They remain the only winless team in the NFL now with an 0-6 record and no future victory in sight.

They finished the game 2-for-17 on third down and didn’t record a third-down conversion until the fourth quarter. Going into the half, they had more penalties than first downs.

Some garbage time stats helped the offensive numbers look more respectable, but it ultimately makes their shutout loss look even worse.

Despite winning the turnover battle, controlling time of possession, running more plays than their opponents, and holding their opponents to just one third-down conversion, the Jets lost by 24 points.

That isn’t just bad — it’s downright unheard of.

The NY Jets are bad.

The Jets are now 0-6 for only the second time in franchise history, the only other time coming in the infamous 1996 season. Head coach Adam Gase is now 7-15 with the Jets and 1-13 in the first half of the season.

Were there any positives to speak of? Not really.

Joe Flacco finished 21-of-44 for 186 yards and an interception starting his second consecutive game in place of Sam Darnold. Frank Gore predictably led the way on the ground rushing for 46 yards on 11 carries.

Ty Johnson made his Jets debut breaking off a long 34-yard run before touching the ball just once after that. La’Mical Perine was once again overshadowed by Gore but he didn’t exactly make the most of his nine touches.

Breshad Perriman finished as the Jets’ leading receiver hauling in four grabs for 62 yards — three of which came in garbage time.

The Jets are a disgraceful football team and on pace to be one of the worst in NFL history. We knew this heading into the week and we still know it now that the game is over.

NY Jets: 3 players who could be traded before the deadline. Next

There is no hope from here. Only apathy.
