NEW YORK (AP) — All those good feelings and positive vibes from a two-game winning streak are long gone. Two straight losses have the Jets scrambling for answers — again — and they need to find them fast.Todd Bowles’ bunch is 3-5 after eight games for the third straight season. New York finished 5-11 in each of the past two [url=][/url ] , and a repeat performance might not sit well with ownership — or the fans.“It’s very frustrating,” Bowles said Monday during a conference call. “We’ve got to put our heads down and we’ve got to correct this and we’ve got to try to come out and win some ballgames.“The season’s not over, but we’re halfway through and we’re 3-5 and you don’t like where you are, but we’ve dug ourselves this hole, we’ve got to dig ourselves out.”Easier said than done, of course. Especially based on how the previous two seasons played out.New York has a pair of AFC East rivals up next on the schedule, with a game at Miami next Sunday before the Jets return home to face Buffalo in two weeks. Then, they’ll have their bye-week break — and have a good sense of what direction their season is heading.“I mean, obviously we’re not satisfied with our record,” safety Marcus Maye said. “We know where we want to be, but we took a look at it today and we know we still have all of our division games coming up, so those are our most important games coming up here on our schedule.“Even with a 3-5 record, we know we still have everything sitting in front of us despite everything that’s happened already.”The Jets ended a three-game skid three weeks ago with a convincing 34-16 win over Denver and followed that up by outlasting Indianapolis in a 42-34 victory to get their record back to .500 at 3-3.But in a 37-17 loss to Minnesota last week and an ugly 24-10 defeat at Chicago on Sunday , New York has looked flat and sloppy.Injuries to key players such as wide receivers Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson [url=]Taylor Rapp Jersey[/url] , running back Bilal Powell and center Spencer Long haven’t helped. But the Jets have also not made things easy on themselves with penalties, including eight against the Bears.“Just shooting ourselves in the foot,” quarterback Sam Darnold said. “The penalties killed. If we don’t have the early false starts, I think it’s just a different game.”New York was actually called for 10 penalties, with eight accepted. Of those, five were false starts and two neutral-zone infractions.“That was probably the worst part of the game,” Bowles said. “It’s just a concentration thing by certain guys at certain times. We get that fixed as coaches, they’ve got to fix it as players. The false starts were the most disheartening thing of the whole ballgame.”That’s saying a lot, considering there was plenty not to like against the Bears.Darnold was 14 of 29 for 153 yards and a touchdown to Chris Herndon, but the offense was sluggish for most of the game. New York had just 207 yards of total offense, the third-lowest total in Bowles’ three-plus seasons — and that’s even with Chicago being without the injured Khalil Mack.The running game was completely ineffective with just 57 yards on 24 attempts, a dismal average of 2.4 yards per carry. That’s a far cry from the 323 yards rushing, boosted by Isaiah Crowell’s franchise-record 219, against Denver three weeks ago.“That’s a good question [url=]Shareef Miller Jersey[/url] ,” Bowles said when asked about the running game’s struggles lately. “I didn’t think it was good at all yesterday. I thought they beat us up front and they beat us to the punch.“I thought we missed some assignments that we’ve got to correct, but we’ve got to keep grinding at it. We can’t be up and down. We’ve got to be consistent at it. If we want to throw the ball consistently, we got to be able to run it consistently.”Sounds simple enough, but the Jets have found consistency in just about anything to be tough to come by.Bowles spoke after the game about how he liked how the team stayed together throughout the game against the Bears, and that is a positive from which to build. The players echoed their coach’s sentiments, insisting that they can turn things around together.Bowles also believes the Jets are better today than they were at the start of the season.“Any time you don’t win ballgames, you don’t see that on record,” Bowles said. “But I feel like we’re closer from a chemistry standpoint and camaraderie standpoint. We’ve just got to make some plays.”NOTES: The Jets re-signed CB Juston Burris to the practice squad. Burris, a fourth-rounder in 2016, was cut from the active roster Saturday to make room for RB De’Angelo Henderson. … Bowles had no update on NT Steve McLendon’s ankle injury that forced him out of the game. EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Xavier Rhodes was trailing Green Bay’s Davante Adams in coverage along the sideline late in the fourth quarter last week. Aaron Rodgers let the ball fly and Minnesota’s best cornerback raced to catch up.Rhodes arrived in time to make the tackle after a 36-yard gain by the Packers, but in the process of the acceleration he hurt his hamstring. As soon as he stood up, he grabbed his right leg and fell back to the turf. The immediate fear was a multiple-week absence for one of the most valuable players the Vikings have.But after testing and treatment, the diagnosis was a “very [url=]Germaine Pratt Jersey[/url] , very mild” injury, according to coach Mike Zimmer. He said on Wednesday, before Rhodes was held out of practice, that “there’s a good chance” the 2017 All-Pro pick will be able to play on Sunday at New England.With Tom Brady and that potent Patriots offense up next, the timing could not be better for Rhodes to heal quickly. With first-round draft pick Mike Hughes out for the season because of a torn ACL in his left knee, the depth behind Rhodes and Trae Waynes has thinned. Mackensie Alexander is manning the slot on most of the nickel plays, and rookie Holton Hill has been sent in several times to play on the outside as a fill-in when someone’s hurt.The latest opportunity came against the Packers, with the Vikings leading 24-14 when that reception by Adams set up the visiting team for a field goal.“My confidence has always been like a thing for me. You can’t go out on the field if you don’t believe in yourself. It starts there,” Hill said. “Obviously it’s something I’m not used to, but as a player, I’m going to have to play my role. There’s no excuses. I’m about to get in and help the defense out.”Rhodes and Waynes have each missed one full game, and they’ve also both been forced out of several contests because of injuries. The undrafted Hill was a priority free agent out of Texas for the Vikings right after the draft. Grasping Zimmer’s system took some time in training camp and beyond, but he has come a long way and been asked to play more meaningful snaps than anyone would have anticipated.“Now they give us a call, and I just line up [url=][/url ] , and it’s like natural,” Hill said.Though no soft-tissue injuries are the same, the Vikings have been especially conservative about handling them lately. Running back Dalvin Cook missed five games with hamstring trouble, and linebacker Anthony Barr was sidelined for three games with the same injury. So it stands to reason Rhodes won’t necessarily be cleared for action against Brady, who with two touchdown passes would move ahead of Peyton Manning, who had 579, for first place on the NFL’s all-time list, including playoffs. Regardless of how Rhodes fares over the rest of the week, Hill will need to be ready.“He’s still learning, obviously, like most young guys are,” Zimmer said, “but he’s got a lot of really good competitiveness.”
