BBTN: Tim Kurkjian And Mark Teixeira On How The MLB Should Punish The Houston Astros

The post-Jacksonville convo between QB Sam Darnold and Adam Gase has generated attention as a potential turning point. Gase welcomed Darnold's assertiveness, saying it was the "right time" for the young QB to express his opinions on the pros and cons of the offense. Darnold said he spoke up because of his comfort level with Gase and the offense, saying "it was important for that conversation to happen." Since then, his play has improved.

Le'Veon Bell played 75% and 56% of the snaps in the last two games, his lowest numbers of the season. Why? Three reasons, per Adam Gase: They don't want to be predictable. The other RBs "deserve" to play. They want to keep him fresh. Said Gase: "We want to make sure we have a strong, 16-game season from him." Smart move, especially since Bilal Powell has provided a spark as a change-up off the bench.

Jets injury report: This week's spotlight will be on OTs Kelvin Beachum (ankle) and Chuma Edoga (ankle/knee). Edoga had an MRI and is day-to-day. Adam Gase said he's "optimistic" that Edoga can play against Oakland. Beachum aggravated a previous injury, but it's not as bad as the first one. He finished the game and should be able to practice this week.
