The previously winless Bengals dominating the Jets in a 22-6 loss.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton returned from one of the lowest points of his nine-year career and got a long-awaited victory Sunday for the coach who benched him, throwing a touchdown pass.
The Jets also committed penalties at critical times and opened the game with three dropped passes that killed their first drive.
The Jets fell to 4-8, guaranteeing a fourth straight non-winning season.
After recording 400 yards in back-to-back weeks, the Jets finished with 271 yards.
Quarterback Sam Darnold went 28 of 48 for 239 yards.
“Every time we had something going, we’d shoot ourselves in the foot,” Jets coach Adam Gase told the Post.
Next Sunday the opponent will be the 3-9 Dolphins.
