New York Jets fall to 0-4 with implosion against depleted Denver Broncos

Sam Darnold returned after a seemingly devastating injury, but couldn’t do enough to beat a depleted Broncos team.

The Jets defense was an absolute disaster, making terrible mistakes in coverage and committing crushing penalties — including the most costly of all: Quinnen Williams' fourth-quarter personal foul that was the wrong type of game-changer.

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (14) is sacked by Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (55) during the first half at MetLife Stadium.

The Jets arrived at the 20-yard line on their first possession of the second half, after receiver Jeff Smith drew a long pass interference penalty on a deep ball.

But instead on the last drive of the second quarter, they focused on trying to get the ball to Chris Hogan on fade passes — not his strength, even when he was at the top of his game with the Patriots.

Darnold left the field with his right arm dangling late in the first quarter, after he was sacked and slammed to the the turf on his shoulder by Broncos linebacker Alexander Johnson.
