Morris Claiborne 'embarrassed' by Jets' 41-10 loss to the Bills

The veteran CB replies 'hell yes' when asked if he was embarrassed by Jets' fourth straight loss

To say the Jets' defense played poorly in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bills would be a vast understatement.

Buffalo had scored 20 points in its last three games combined, but exceeded that mark with 7:58 to play in the first half, when Matt Barkley hit left tackle Dion Dawkins for a 7-yard touchdown to give the Bills a 24-0 lead.

The Bills had scored one touchdown in their last three games, but achieved that only two plays into Sunday's game. Robert Foster, who came into the game with two career receptions, beat Trumaine Johnson deep down the right sideline for a 47-yard reception, and then LeSean McCoy took a carry 28 yards around the right end for his first touchdown of the season.

Johnson was playing his first game since Week 4 in Jacksonville after missed the last five with a quad injury. He had an atrocious performance, as did Buster Skrine, who was beat by Zay Jones for a 33-yard reception, and Morris Claiborne, who was beat for 22 yards by Andre Holmes and dropped a would-be interception.

Claiborne deflected four passes, but that otherwise belied a poor effort by him and the entire Jets secondary.

Jets defense again forces zero turnovers

The Jets haven't forced a single turnover during their four-game losing streak after forcing 15 in their first six games. Bills quarterbacks Josh Allen, Nathan Peterman and Derek Anderson had three touchdown passes and 16 interceptions through the first nine games of the season, but Matt Barkley had two TDs and no picks Sunday.

"Honestly, we didn’t expect to come out there like that. We didn’t expect this game to go like that," said strong safety Jamal Adams, who, as usual, was the Jets' most active defender with a half-sack, two QB hits and a a pass deflection. "We didn’t come out there and execute. We played bad -- all three phases. It’s as simple as that."
