ESPN's Rich Cimini conducts a candid, wide-ranging interview with Jets legend Mark Gastineau.

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.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Jets injury report: RT Chuma Edoga is having tests Monday on an ankle injury that occurred in the first half. He was replaced by Brandon Shell. The offensive line is getting decimated: Ryan Kalil (IR), Brian Winters (IR) and Kelechi Osemele (surgery/cut). They've already started six different combos.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

S Jamal Adams has six sacks, a new single-season team record for DBs. All six have come in the last three games. "The picks aren't coming my way, so I thought I'd do something different," he said. He's two shy of the NFL record for a DB.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets have scored eight offensive TDs in the last two games — same total as the first EIGHT games. QB Sam Darnold said "we're really getting a feel for the offense ... We're playing with a lot more rhythm." The pass protection was better in this game — 11 pressures and only two sacks allowed.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

TE Ryan Griffin had a career game — five catches for 109 yards and a TD, including a 45-yard reception on a Sam Darnold scramble. "They kind of lost me in the shuffle and I just tried to put the jets on," Griffin said. Jets? Not exactly. He reached only 16.7 mph on the play, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Not bad for a big tight end, but not jet-like.

Adam Gase: We're improve week-to-week

Jets HC Adam Gase spoke about the team's strong effort in a win down in the nation's capital and how they've been able to improve by not looking too far ahead.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

It was another tough-sledding game for RB Le'Veon Bell, but he believes there was some progress in the run game. "I feel like it's getting better," he said. Bell complimented running mate Bilal Powell — well, except the play in which he tripped on the way to the end zone. "I'm sure he wishes he didn't tackle himself," Bell joked.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Coach Adam Gase said Sam Darnold has taken ownership of the offense. "He knows what he likes, he knows what he doesn't like and he's not afraid to say it," Gase said. "He's taking more control of everything." This was Darnold's first four-TD game since his 2017 season at USC.

Sam Darnold throws 4 TD passes, Jets rout Redskins 34-17

The Jets beat up on another bad team, but they did it in convincing fashion — 34-17 over the Redskins. Biggest positive: Sam Darnold (four TDs) played one of the best games of his career. The Jets improved to 3-1 against the NFC East and won back-to-back games for the first time in 20 games. Baby steps.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets lead the Redskins at halftime, 20-3, and the big story is QB Sam Darnold, who has three first-half TD passes for the first time in his career. Darnold is using his improv ability to make plays outside the pocket. He made one bad decision (interception). Otherwise, he has been nearly flawless.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets put two OLM on injured reserve this week, and now they have another injury. Rookie RT Chuma Edoga (ankle) was hurt in the second quarter; his return is questionable. He was replaced by former RT Brandon Shell.
