New York Jets 3 Arizona Cardinals 28
The Arizona Cardinals, a preseason favorite to win it all in some circles, has struggled so far this season to fire on all cylinders. You’d never know that watching them go up against the New York Jets last night.
Running back David Johnson grabbed a routine off-tackle left run, made a few choices jukes and took it 58 -yards to the house with nothing but befuddled Jets defenders in his wake.
Arizona never looked back from there.
Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continued his troubled play, eventually getting benched for Geno Smith, who didn’t perform much better.
The Jets second ranked rush defense coughed up 171 yards, including 111 and three touchdowns to Johnson, who has gained 268 yards on the ground in the last two games.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer left the game mid way through the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, leaving mop up duties to backup Drew Stanton.
Arizona, now sitting at 3-3, is trying to climb back into the post season conversation.
New York, at 1-5, is now vying for worst team in the league honors, alongside the 0-6 Cleveland Browns, 1-5 San Francisco 49ers, 1-5 Chicago Bears and 1-5 Carolina Panthers.
