JACKSONVILLE -- Led by 237 yards from Fred Taylor -- 142 rushing and 95 receiving -- the Jaguars made the Jets look hapless again Sunday, defeating them 28-3.
"We played like kids out there," Jets running back Curtis Martin said. "We didn't play like an NFL football team."
The Jets (1-3) have been outscored 102-13 in three straight losses, their worst three-game stretch since 1962, when they were known as the Titans.
Stacey Mack scored three touchdowns for Jacksonville, three more than New York has in the past two weeks.
A quarterback controversy looms, although it's hard to tell if it matters who lines up under center.
Coach Herm Edwards must choose from a hobbled Vinny Testaverde, who thinks he'll be healthy by next week, and Chad Pennington, who threw for 281 yards but had no more luck than Testaverde did last week getting the Jets in the end zone.
"I don't think that's on his mind right now," Testaverde said, when asked about Edwards' pending quarterback choice. "He's got other problems than who the quarterback is going to be."
Meanwhile, all is well in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars have a winning record for the first time in a year. Taylor averaged 6.8 yards a carry, scored on a 22-yard run, and his yards receiving were a career high.
