The New York Jets entered the season with high expectations. They entered the season expecting to contend for a playoff spot.

Instead, they are 0-4 and rank 31st in the league in scoring offense, averaging just 9.8 points per game.

“Obviously it’s tough, it’s frustrating,” Jets strong safety Jamal Adams said on The DA Show. “This is my third year, and things haven’t gone as planned. But you just got to keep your head down and keep working. You got to keep your focus because if you lose focus, it doesn’t help the situation. As one of the leaders on the team, I got to continue to keep everyone’s spirits up and just keep fighting and grab that first win. We just need one to get it started. Hopefully it comes as soon as possible.”

Asked if he was having trouble sleeping at night, Adams chuckled.

“Nah, nah, I get my sleep, man,” Adams said. “I get my sleep, trust me.”

The Jets have lost to the Bills, Browns, Patriots and Eagles. The last three losses have come by a combined 61 points.

Adams, the sixth overall pick in 2017, was asked if he’s frustrated with the coaching staff.

“I’m frustrated with losing,” he said. “It’s no one in particular. . . . (Adam Gase is) a great head coach, full of energy, is a hell of a competitor and a guy that wants to win ball games. He’s a football junkie. Obviously he’s frustrated just as well as everybody is. We haven’t won a game. It’s really not rocket science. I’m not going to sit here and sugarcoat it. We’re all frustrated. We’re all pissed off. But at the same time, we got to remain focused, keep our same focus and continue to work hard.”

Sam Darnold, it is worth noting, has been medically cleared to return to action.

“We need to get healthy period – not just Sam, but we definitely need to get everybody back,” Adams said. “When we can get everybody back is when we can roll in the right direction. Like I said, it’s frustrating. It is what it is right now. Hopefully we flip it around, but it starts each and every day. It started yesterday with the film study of corrections. Tuesday is our recovery day. Reflect on yourself as a person, as a player. Wednesday you go to work. As long as you keep continuing to do that, you give yourself a chance to win ball games.”

The Jets host the Cowboys (3-2) this Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. Dallas has lost back-to-back games following a 3-0 start.
