The New York Jets threw their Monday Night Football game plan out the window when Trevor Siemian went down with a freak ankle injury. After that, it became the Le'Veon Bell show, with the running back being force fed carries and targets as the Jets struggled to make it past the line of scrimmage. Well, cameras caught Bell looking incredibly emotional on the sideline, and if we're being honest, it's almost impossible to blame him.
This is the face of a defeated running back, and Bell could very well be second guessing his decision signing a long-term deal with the lowly Jets.
Bell had to fight tooth and nail for every single yard he picked up on Monday, and it was all for naught as the Jets were trounced 23-3. He was the only productive player on the team's offense and it got them nowhere.
Bell logged 21 carries for 68 yards and caught all 10 of his targets for an additional 61 yards. Hell, Le'Veon was even used as the team's emergency QB in the Wildcat formation!
Adam Gase needs to devise a smarter game plan in Week 3, or else the Jets could find themselves falling out of favor with their star running back well before the midway point of Year 1.
