The New York Jets will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will square off against the Cincinnati Bengals at 1 p.m. ET next Sunday at MetLife Stadium. New York is out to stop a seven-game streak of losses at home.

The afternoon started off rough for the Jets on Sunday, and it ended that way, too. They were completely outmatched by the New England Patriots on the road and fell 54-13. New York was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 31-7. One thing holding New York back was the mediocre play of QB Mike White, who did not have his best game: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday was close at halftime, but Cincinnati turned on the heat in the second half with 28 points. The Bengals were the clear victors by a 41-17 margin over Baltimore. It was another big night for Cincinnati’s WR Ja’Marr Chase, who caught eight passes for one TD and 201 yards. Joe Burrow’s 82-yard touchdown toss down the right side of the field to Chase in the third quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.

New York is now 1-5 while Cincinnati sits at 5-2. A couple of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: New York is stumbling into the matchup with the fewest overall offensive touchdowns in the NFL, having accrued only nine on the season. The Bengals’ offense has more to brag about, as they rank third in the league when it comes to passing touchdowns, with 18 on the season.
