The Jets have fallen to 3-6 after a 13-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
“Obviously, we as a team — we don’t want to lose,” Adams said. “We can sit here and make up a million and one excuses. At the end of the day, we’ve got to figure it out as a team and put the answers together. Going into this week coming against Buffalo, we’ve just got to put it all together as a team and continue to work hard and hopefully pull out this W.”
Adams sees the Jets’ defensive performance in the loss as a positive to build on.
“I thought the defense played one of our best games, our d-line played a helluva game,” Adams said. “We held them to low passing yards and they didn’t rush for a lot of yards as well. That’s definetly a positive. The offense, they fought throughout the whole game. Just as a team, we just didn’t capitalize on opportunities. As a defense, obviously, we’ve been pressing it hard as far as getting turnovers. We’re just not getting turnovers right now. We really don’t know those answers. Again, we’ve just got to continue to try to create those turnovers and win the field position, fight the battle for our offense.”
The Jets held Miami to 257 total yards and just 122 passing yards.
Head coach Todd Bowles and the Jets’ offense have come under criticism. New York was limited to 42 rushing yards on Sunday.
Adams believes that the group will stick together through hard times.
“This team is not going to split up,” Adams said. “It’s just not going to happen. We have tremendous leaders on this team. Of course, I’m one of them. It’s just not going to happen.”
