EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — The Los Angeles Chargers improved to .500 on Monday when they defeated the New York Jets 27-6 at MetLife Stadium. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak as the Jets were held without a touchdown.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers beat a bad Chicago Bears team 30-13 last week, their biggest win of the season. On Monday night, they faced a Jets team boasting one of the best defenses in the league, which won Josh Allen And Jalen gets hurt.

The Chargers won their second straight game against the Jets with an explosive first quarter, where they put up 14 points and a dominant defensive line that didn’t let the Jets get away.

Eye-catching NextGen Status: come back Austin Eckler Had three drops Monday night, tied for most in his career. Off the drop, Eckler played a good game, scoring two touchdowns and finishing 47 yards from scrimmage. But Eckelor led the team in receptions last season, and his catches often lead to big plays from the offense, so Monday’s drops to the Chargers should be an anomaly.

Promising trends: Joey Bosa Has 3.5 sacks over last two games. Bosa broke his left big toe in the Chargers’ Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings, missed the following game against the Raiders, and didn’t look like the same player until the Chargers’ Week 8 win over the Bears in which he had one sack. Bosa appeared better than ever on Monday, securing 2.5 sacks, the second-most of his career.

Disturbing trends: quarterback Justin Herbert Has been dismissed ten times in the last three matches. Herbert had less than 2.5 seconds to throw 40% of his drop backs as the Jets defensive line pushed the Chargers forward with ease all night. –Chris Ream

Two hours before the game, Aaron Rodgers Launched a 50-yard pass in warmups — a remarkable feat, considering he was just two months removed from Achilles surgery. It was the offensive highlight for the Jets on Monday night.

Things change quickly in the NFL. During the three-game winning streak, the Jets were considered a well-lived, feisty overachiever in a post-Rogers world. Now, suddenly, they look like a flawed competitor with a struggle Jack Wilson At quarterback

The Jets (4-4) lost three fumbles, allowed seven sacks and continued their historically poor performance on third down (3-of-17). They spoiled another sterling performance on defense, which recorded five sacks.

That’s been the story of the Jets over the past two seasons. The offense scored just eight touchdowns in eight games. Four of those touchdowns were one-play drives, including one that allowed the Philadelphia Eagles to score in an end-game situation.

The offense-defense disparity, which faltered last season, could blow up another year. Rodgers, hoping to return later in the year if the Jets are in contention, may have to shift his sights to 2024.

QB Breakdown: Wilson went hitless for the fifth time in his last six games. That was good news. The bad news was that former no. 2 overall pick missed open receivers and did a poor job sensing pressure in the pocket, showing no feel for the Los Angeles defense — a defense that started Week 31 against the pass. For Wilson, it was a performance straight from last season. Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett tried to go up-tempo on occasion, trying to spark his comatose unit, but nothing worked. Can coach Robert Saleh change quarterbacks? Backup undocumented travelers Tim Boyle. They have former starters/journeymen Trevor Siemian In the practice squad. Neither is an attractive option, so look for them to run it with Wilson.

Disturbing trends: The reshuffled offensive line was a mess, but that was no excuse. Rookie Center Joe Tippman Starting his first game, Max Mitchell Right guard and his first start Billy Turner There was a fill-in at right tackle. Turner allowed at least three sacks. Don’t be surprised if they shuffle the line again next week now that tackle Duane Brown Eligible to come off injured reserve.

The biggest hole in the game plan: Hackett was very pass-reliant in the first half, making little use of running backs Brice Hall. Hackett also used a lot of five-man protection. Priority No. 1 should have been pass protection.

Main game: Jet is honored Thomas Morstead, the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, included him in pregame player introductions — unusual for a punter. Minutes later, he outran his coverage on a 59-yard punt, which led to an 87-yard touchdown. Darius Davis. That put the Jets up 7-0 and they never recovered. — Rich Cimini

Next game: at Rider (8:20 p.m. ET, Nov. 12)
