Jamal Adams fired up after Jets' third straight loss

The second-year safety had arguably his best game of the season in a 13-6 loss to the Dolphins

Whenever the Jets lose a tough game, reporters flock to Jamal Adams to see what the fiery defensive captain has to say.

The message from the 23-year-old was a simple one: "I'm sick of losing. Enough is enough. I'm a sore loser. I'm fed up, man."

The Jets are 8-17 since Adams' arrival last season, but he's been one of the few bright spots. Sunday was another example of that.

Adams had seven tackles, including one for a loss, and deflected two Brock Osweiler passes as the Jets held Miami to only two Jason Sanders field goals.

The Dolphins (5-4) had only 168 total yards (3.1 per play) and had four sacks -- two for OLB Jordan Jenkins, another from ILB Avery Williamson, who led the Jets with 12 tackles, and another for OLB Jeremiah Attaochu. But New York failed to force a turnover for the third straight game after getting 15 in the first six.

"We're gonna figure it out one way or another," Adams said. "I don't lose confidence."

The Jets' issues aren't head coach Todd Bowles' fault, Adams added, but he failed to pinpoint what the exact problem is.

This Jets' allowed a season low 13 points, and it was the third time they've held an opponent to less than 20 points. They won the first two -- 48-17 in Detroit in Week 1 and 34-16 over the Broncos in Week 5.
