Grading the Jets after their 37-28 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.

Offense

The Jets moved the ball better than they had in their previous games, but failed to reach the end zone too many times. They were 0-for-3 in the red zone, settling for Sam Ficken field goals. QB Sam Darnold (23 of 42, 230 yards, six rushes, 84 yards, 1 TD) played better than he did Sunday but did not get much help. Darnold was sacked six times.

Grade: D

Defense

Broncos QB Brett Rypien (19 of 31, 242 yards, 2 TDs, 3 INTs) played well in his first start and made Gregg Williams’ defense look bad for most of the night. CB Pierre Desir had two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, but he also gave up several huge plays. The biggest issue on defense was the six personal fouls, which repeatedly extended drives and gave the Broncos life.

Grade: F

Special teams

Ficken was the Jets’ best offensive weapon. He went 5-for-5 on field goals and gave the Jets a fourth-quarter lead. Braden Mann averaged 48.7 yards on three punts, but his best play was a touchdown-saving tackle on a long return.

Grade: B

Coaching

Where is the discipline? The Jets committed 11 penalties for 118 yards, six of them personal fouls. The Jets need to get that cleaned up immediately. Adam Gase’s job is safe for now, but he needs to find a way to get this team to play better. Offensively, they can’t keep stalling in the red zone. Gregg Williams has as much to answer for in this loss. His defense got shredded by an undrafted quarterback making his first start.

Grade: F
