The New England Patriots played their third stringers against the Jacksonville Jaguars and there was just one possible response for the rest of the AFC East: simply give up.
The New York Jets already gave up on the season before the start of training camp. They shipped away nearly every veteran over the age of 30 and put their other players on the trading block. They don’t have a quarterback, they don’t have a wide receiver, they don’t have a tight end, they don’t have a cornerback, and they don’t have a chance in 2017. They’ve set up the roster to try and tank for the first overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Miami Dolphins lost their starting quarterback to a torn ACL and replaced him with Smokin’ Jay Cutler.
