Todd Bowles should expect to be fired after Jets embarrass themselves vs. Bills

New York (3-7) loses to Buffalo (3-7) as a 7.5-point favorite, 41-10

Well, Todd Bowles was already on the hot seat, but it's hard to see him keeping his job after what happened Sunday at MetLife Stadium. A bad Bills team completely embarrassed the Jets, who have lost four in a row. Matt Barkley, who Buffalo signed off the street not even two weeks ago, threw two touchdown passes and LeSean McCoy rushed for two scores, his first of the season. Barkley nearly threw another touchdown pass, but Zay Jones fumbled into the end zone and it was recovered by tight end Jason Croom. The Jets trailed 31-0 (their largest deficit of the season) when Jason Myers hit a 55-yard field goal on the final play of the first half. Isaiah Crowell scored a touchdown on a 5-yard rush -- his team-leading sixth touchdown of the season -- to make it 31-10. But the Bills marched 65 yards in 12 plays on the ensuing drive, capped by Jones' 8-yard touchdown reception, to make it 38-10. Bowles is now 23-35 (.397) in four seasons with the Jets, which is the worst winning percentage for any Jets head coach who was with the team longer than two seasons. The Jets are 0-3 in the AFC East, with the first-place Patriots coming to town next week. Josh McCown threw two interceptions starting in place of the injured Sam Darnold (foot), and the Jets have now thrown a league-high 16 interceptions in 10 games. To put into some context just how bad the Jets were Sunday, they had 1 total yard of offense in the first quarter, while Buffalo, a team that had scored 20 points combined in its last three games, had 186.
