What happened to this unit? Wasn’t this supposed to be the strength of the defense?

When I watched the Thursday night game with the Patriots and Buccaneers in Week 5, my reaction was that the Jets defensive line would have a field day against the Pats. New England’s offensive line has been terrible this season and even with one of the NFL’s worst pass rushes, Tampa Bay was constantly hitting Brady.
If the New York Jets defensive line isn’t at the bottom of the pass rushing ranks, please tell me a team that has a defensive line that has been worse. This was the game to get going for this unit, and instead, it was a disaster.
Tom Brady was sacked zero times. Zero times! To top it off, this unit allowed 118 yards on the ground and 4.7 yards per carry.
In a game that was set up perfectly for the defensive line to take over, they made no impact on a game they needed to dominate.
