The Cincinnati Bengals knocked the Jets to the other side of the stadium on Sunday in a 49-9 loss that, while expected, hammered home larger points about the Jets.

"When you come off a win like we came off against one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and we come into this weekend and we basically go out there and lay an egg, every man needs to look at himself and figure out what they've got to try to do," Cromartie said after the loss to the Bengals.
