The Jets continued their losing ways Sunday, falling 27-13 to the Patriots. It was their 5th straight loss. A team that was once 3-3 is now 3-8. Their defense, which came into the season as their strength, has not been good at all. 

Jets safety Jamal Adams joined WFAN's "Carlin, Maggie and Bart" in his weekly spot Tuesday. On the bright side, Adams played well covering Rob Gronkowski down the middle of the field.

"I had this circled on my calendar going against Gronk. I knew what I was going to do," Adams told "CMB." "I want people to put respect on my name and that's how I felt when I went out there. I felt I was the best and I felt very confident in my ability to cover. I went out there and executed."

It was another game where the Jets didn't play all four quarters well. 

"We got to finish these type of games. We have to limit mistakes. We got to get those things fixed ASAP. Everybody has to be better. It's not singling out anybody. We just didn't play all four quarters well.

The Jets haven't forced a turnover in over a month, which has truly cost them.

"We got to get a turnover. We haven't had a turnover in five games," Adams said. "We're talking about turnovers and getting it done, but we're not getting it done. We're just talking about it. Getting turnovers is about a mindset, an attitude. We can create turnovers. It's killing us."

"In practice we're phenomenal. In the games, we're not communicating. We got to do a better job. Everybody has to talk. I take full ownership of it. There's times I could have communicated better. Us as grown men, we have to figure it ourself."

It's another week where Adams preaches that it isn't the coaches' fault for their struggles. 

"People want to go blame it on coaching. It's not Bowles. I know a lot of people are frustrated with him. It's not his fault. We got to communicate better. We got to communicate better. I understand the frustration of the fan base. We got to do a better job as far as everybody doing their job."
