The New York Jets took six false start penalties on Sunday afternoon in Chicago. Now, they’re trying to make sure it doesn’t become a trend.

FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY—The New York Jets‘ autumn┬áhas featured a distinct shade of yellow. Unfortunately, it comes not from the fall foliage emanating from the trees around Atlantic Health Jets Training Center, but from penalty flags that fall from the pockets of referees.

The Jets’ most recent sloppy effort, a 24-10 road defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bears on Sunday, was punctuated by penalties, namely those of the false start variety. The team had gone over a month without jumping before the snap, their previous such infraction coming in the Week 3 loss in Cleveland.
