Jets coach Adam Gase was happy for his players after the team finally recorded its first win of the 2020 NFL season Sunday.
The Jets stunned the Rams 23-20 at SoFi Stadium, becoming the first winless team in NFL history to beat a nine-plus win team on the road.
The result, however, means they no longer hold the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and that may cost them Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
Gase was focused on his current roster after a breakthrough victory.
“I’m just happy for our guys. They’ve done such a great job of how they’ve worked, been through a lot of adversity,” he told a news conference. “It’s been too long for us to even remember what a win feels like almost. It’s great to see those guys that excited.”
Asked about the feeling in the locker room, Gase said: “It’s lively in there. It’s loud, it’s a lot of excited guys.
RIVERA: Jets screwed up by winning
“We’ve got a long flight back so that’ll make that a lot more enjoyable.”
The win means the Jaguars (1-13) now hold the top pick in the draft, but Gase dismissed the talk about the draft and Lawrence, saying: “Our job is to try to go out and win every week.”
