In a matchup of friends, sputtering Jets meet 2-3 Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The New York Jets travel across the country in something of a funk, as their coach Todd Bowles returns to familiar turf.

His longtime friend and former boss, Arizona coach Bruce Arians, has had problems of his own.

The Cardinals (2-3) were ballyhooed as a sure-fire contender, but already have lost as many games as they did all of last season.

They are coming off a 33-21 victory over San Francisco, though, and quarterback Carson Palmer returns after sitting out the 49ers game with a concussion.

The Jets (1-4) are having a tough time against a schedule that opened with four of their first five foes having participated in the playoffs last season.

New York lost the first three of those matchups, most recently a 31-13 beating at Pittsburgh , as they head into a Monday night encounter with the Cardinals.
