Head coach Adam Gase wants New York Jets to show consistency after defeating the New York Giants for their second win.
After losing three straight games to drop to 1-7, the New York Jets have finally won another football game. Gang Green defeated the New York Giants by a score of 34-27. The Jets now sport a record of 2-7, sitting in last place in the AFC East division.
Although they aren’t mathematically eliminated, it’ll take a lot for the Jets to make the postseason. Winning the rest of their games to finish 9-7 may not even be enough.
However, head coach Adam Gase doesn’t even want to think about that. He wants his team to focus on the “now,” taking everything one game at a time.
“It’s all going to be about Wednesday, showing up coming back to work, wiping the slate clean and focusing on winning the next game,” Gase said on Monday, per Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post. “If we’re looking past anything besides that, we’re in the wrong spot. We need to figure out a way to keep improving every day and not worry about what’s going on [in the big picture]. We just need to play better than we did the week before.”
It’s clear that Gase doesn’t want the team thinking too far ahead. Developing some consistency is an attainable goal for Gase’s squad.
The Jets will take on the 1-8 Washington Redskins this coming Sunday in an attempt to establish a multi-game win streak. New York and Washington, who’s last in the NFC East division, will kick off at FedEx Field at 1 p.m. ET.
