Like a broken record, the NY Jets offense has been abysmal over the last two weeks. Playing against two of the worst defenses in the entire NFL, the Jets have scored just 19 total points. Had it not been for wildly improbable field goals at the end of the Giants game, it might only be 13.

They became the first team in 25 years to lose a game by 21 points when the defense accounted for five sacks and gave up less than 200 yards of offense. Despite a phenomenal game from the defense, it wasn't even ever competitive, never mind close.

The offense has been downright disastrous. They’ve somehow tallied 30 possessions in the last two games, and 18 have ended in punts. Another four have ended via a lost fumble. Throw in two failed fourth down plays, and 24-of-30 have ended without points. 

They currently have the lowest third-down percentage (22 percent) in 45 years of NFL football. It's embarrassingly bad. 

The question now is, where does the blame fall? Is it all on Zach Wilson, or does some fall on coaching, ownership, and other offensive playmakers as well? We rank the level of blame for those four groups below, from most blame to least blame.
