Inconsistent Jets, Geno Smith are all over the map

Seems the New York Jets can’t stand success.

A week after beating New England in their most impressive performance of the season, the Jets flopped in Cincinnati, 49-9.

The Jets haven’t won consecutive games since Weeks 13 and 14 of last season, and their latest debacle was their worst loss since 2010.

Geno Smith looked like a rookie once again with two intercepted passes that were returned for touchdowns, and the Jets’ defense was shredded by Andy Dalton, who threw for five touchdowns – four to the unheralded Marvin Jones.


“It’s been up-down, up-down all year,” Smith said. “That’s the way it’s been so far. Sometimes we do it, other times we don’t. That’s a part of developing consistency.”
