After initially coming out strong against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the Jets suffered another devastating blow but to make matters worse, Mosley accused the Eagles of unsportsmanlike behavior even before kickoff.

“It’s all about respect. Right now, teams are not respecting us. That’s well-deserved, whether it’s by self-inflicted wounds or by the history of the Jets.”

The Jets’ struggles have been years in the making but with a new head coach and a fresh, young quarterback, the expectations to turn things around this season were high.

In Sunday’s 30-18 loss, it initially appeared the Jets and Eagles would be in for a slugfest as they both scored touchdowns on their first three possessions — but things slowed for New York significantly after the half.

The Jets held the ball for only 70 seconds in the third quarter — just three plays for 3 yards. Meanwhile, the Eagles had 24 plays for 81 yards over 13:50 in the period. Philadelphia held the overall edge in time of possession, 35:36 to 24:24.
