Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones is getting roasted this Thursday for calling the New York Jets a “very good football team.”

This is one way to avoid falling victim to the “trap game.”

On Thursday, Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones had some flattering things to say about the 0-7 New York Jets. So flattering, in fact, that Twitter is up in arms about the exact verbiage used.

“You can’t take these games for granted,” Jones told reporters Thursday. “That’s a very good football team. Sam Darnold doesn’t get the credit, but he’s a very, very good quarterback. I think people tend to forget that because of their record.”

Jones, 26, is talking Jets because his Chiefs welcome in the NFL’s only winless team to Arrowhead Stadium this weekend. With only one loss on the year, the defending Super Bowl champs are looking to do everything they can to avoid a down week against one of the league’s worst.

Perhaps this is how they accomplish that goal.

The Jets aren’t just bad; they are on pace to match some of the worst statistical outputs in NFL history. They currently rank dead last with just 264.4 yards per game in a league that promotes offense with its rules.

They’re also currently dead last in points per game with a meager 12.1 per-game output. The big-brother New York Giants look like worldbeaters (17.4 points per game, 31st in the NFL) compared to Adam Gase’s offense.

New York Jets, Jets X-Factor

Jones, an interior defensive lineman who put up 15.5 sacks two years ago and nine last year, leads the team with 4.5. He’ll square up against the likes of Alex Lewis, Connor McGovern and Greg Van Roten this Sunday.

If anybody thought the Kansas City Chiefs were taking the New York Jets lightly, Chris Jones just emphatically put an end to the notion.
