EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets talked all week about flushing away their season-opening loss and showing signs of progress.

Sep. 10, 2020 6:17 PM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Gase doesn't need to see the brutally bad numbers from last season to know how ineffective the New York Jets' offense was. The coach lived through all the frustration — at himself and his team — and headed back to his office every week intent on devising a better game...
