The NY Jets offense is broken and there's no obvious solution. Everything is wrong. Nothing is right. Through three weeks, the Jets have looked like the worst team in the NFL.

And Week 3 just solidified that notion.

The Jets limped their way to a 26-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 3 in a game in which the offense looked downright awful.

They averaged 3.1 yards per play. They failed to score a single point. The only chance they had at points was squandered by a false start that wiped out a 56-yard Matt Ammendola field goal.

There are no excuses and no easy solutions. Where do the Jets go from here? It's hard to see them sinking any lower.

The NY Jets offense is broken and Week 3 proved it

Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson had somewhat of a bounce-back performance after a disastrous four-interception game a week ago. But his final stat line will hardly show it.

Wilson finished 19-of-35 for 160 yards and two interceptions, one of which bounced off the hands of Braxton Berrios and directly into the hands of a Broncos defender.

That Berrios drop was part of a larger issue on the evening. Corey Davis had around three drops. Ty Johnson had a pair of drops and was a mess in pass protection. Michael Carter had a drop.

Meanwhile, the Jets' offensive line regressed after a better showing in Week 2. Wilson was pressured on six of his first 16 dropbacks and sacked three times.

Wilson did a better job of taking what the defense gave him, but there wasn't much to be taken. The Jets' receivers struggled to separate and when they did, they were too often failing to actually haul in the pass.

The Jets defense did their job and has honestly overachieved to this point. With a historically young secondary and without Carl Lawson, the Jets defense has more than done their part.

But the offense has looked Adam Gase-like. This game would be up there with some of the worst performances of the Adam Gase era.

The Jets haven't scored a touchdown since Week 1. They totaled 119 net passing yards and were held under 100 until their final drive of the game.

That can't happen in the year 2021. That can't happen in the third year of the Joe Douglas era.

Everyone involved in the construction of this roster and the execution (or lack thereof) on the field deserves blame. From Douglas to Mike LaFleur to Robert Saleh to the players themselves.

The Jets are a mess. They are the worst team in football. And it's hard to see that changing anytime soon.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
