The Cards dominated the game from the start, and sent the Jets to a 1-5 record to start the season.
He made a Cardinal one of the NFL’s top running backs.
The offense, as a whole, was inept against the Cardinals.
Carson Palmer would solidify his contributions in the game with a touchdown pass to Michael Floyd to put the Cardinals up 28-3.
The New York Jets have had a disastrous National Football League season thus far and that includes their quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Arians countered by going short. Fitzpatrick has yet to throw a touchdown pass in the second half of a football game this season. After a slow start to the season at 1-3, Johnson’s two big performances have been exactly what the Cardinals needed. Coach Bruce Arians said Nkemdiche was making far too many mental mistakes in practice. I think I have that. It’s just whether you throw it or not. “That’s the only way we’re going to dig ourselves out of this hole”.
“Fitz will be back next week”, Bowles said, equating the move to Smith as that of a relief pitcher replacing a starter. He finished the game 16/31 for 174 passing yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception.
No modern-era running back is in Arizona’s top eight for all-time yards. With that being said, outside of DJ’s run the offense managed only 42 total yards on the other 16 plays. They beat us on the offensive line. “Right now, we don’t”. Emmitt Smith and Edgerrin James come to mind, but both were at the end of their careers when they came to the Cardinals.
Bowles is highly respected as a defensive genius and Fitzpatrick is not the only reason NY is sitting in last place in the AFC East.
Sometimes, however, it comes time to adapt and adjust.
“It was a little weird”, Palmer said. But you’ve just got to stay ready. “He threw a pick, but it’s my pick”. The Jets never even took a shot at the end zone. “We were stopping the run game, contesting some of the passes in there”. The Jets were penalized ten times for 83 yards, and the Cardinals were penalized nine times for 64 yards. He got the ball out of his hand.
Arizona had not scored in the first quarter this season until Johnson’s first touchdown Monday.
Arizona scored on a pair of 14-play drives in the second half.
What was the team’s mentality when it came to the run game and why were they successful against the Jets?
Throwing for three touchdowns on his way to 247 yards in the Cowboys’ comfortable win over Green Bay, Prescott’s continued mastery of the Dallas offense is on a collision course with the return of the, oft injured, Tony Romo.
Johnson rushed 22 times for 111 yards. Entering Monday, the Jets were allowing 1.8 yards before first contact per rush, which was second-best in the NFL.
It was more of the same for the Jets this week as they could not get any kind of spark on offense.
Roethlisberger rested at home Monday after undergoing arthroscopic surgery and Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said the team is confident Roethlisberger won’t be out “long term”.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched for Geno Smith on Monday night, but he keeps his job.
